If you ever wanted to learn about the concepts and fundamentals of Hinduism then this is the audiobook for you. Even though the Hindu religion is the oldest religion in the world, there are many misconceptions that laypeople have about it. Some people don´t understand the mystical chants and mantra traditions where they keep repeating ´´Aum´´ over and over again. But you have to understand the religion to truly appreciate where these acts and traditions come from. There is a 4,000 year history to Hinduism that many people outside of India don´t even know about. On top of that, Hinduism has evolved a lot over the years with both oral and ancient stories involving the laws of Hinduism. These stories were often told by sages who passed down their knowledge of the religion to their disciples. Eventually there was a compilation of ancient Sanskrit texts where Hindus could study the ethical and moral code that they needed to live by. However, Hindus for thousands of years have been changing traditions and teaching new philosophies about the religion that help motivate modern day people to become followers. Furthermore, they encourage them to take up Hindu derived practices, like yoga and meditation, in order to help them feel better in their lives. You don´t have to be looking to convert to Hinduism to appreciate this audiobook. It is not an audiobook that is going to try to change you or convince you that Hinduism is the one true religion to believe in. This book simply goes over all the important aspects and traditions of the religion, as they are broken down into chapters. That way you can understand the Hindu concepts of God, prayer, meditation, animal sacrifices, and reincarnation. These are the key points that people often misinterpret because they see movies or television shows that misrepresent the real Hindu religion. If you are a Westerner then this probably means you. 1.

To understand modern science as a coherent story, it is essential to recognize the accomplishments of the ancient Hindus. They invented our base-ten number system and zero that are now used globally, carefully mapped the sky and assigned motion to the Earth in their astronomy, developed a sophisticated system of medicine with its mind-body approach known as Ayurveda, mastered metallurgical methods of extraction and purification of metals, including the so-called Damascus blade and the Iron Pillar of New Delhi, and developed the science of self-improvement that is popularly known as yoga. Their scientific contributions made impact on noted scholars globally: Aristotle, Megasthenes, and Apollonius of Tyana among the Greeks; Al-Bir?n?, Al-Khw?rizm?, Ibn Labb?n, and Al-Uql?dis?, Al-J??iz among the Islamic scholars; Fa-Hien, Hiuen Tsang, and I-tsing among the Chinese; and Leonardo Fibbonacci, Pope Sylvester II, Roger Bacon, Voltaire and Copernicus from Europe. In the modern era, thinkers and scientists as diverse as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Johann Gottfried Herder, Carl Jung, Max Müller, Robert Oppenheimer, Erwin Schrödinger, Arthur Schopenhauer, and Henry David Thoreau have acknowledged their debt to ancient Hindu achievements in science, technology, and philosophy. The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), one of the largest scientific organizations in the world, in 2000, published a timeline of 100 most important scientific finding in history to celebrate the new millennium. There were only two mentions from the non-Western world: (1) invention of zero and (2) the Hindu and Mayan skywatchers astronomical observations for agricultural and religious purposes. Both findings involved the works of the ancient Hindus. Ancient Hindu Science is well documented with remarkable objectivity, proper citations, and a substantial bibliography. It highlights the achievements of this remarkable civilization through painstaking research of historical and scientific sources. The style of writing is lucid and elegant, making the book easy to read. This book is the perfect text for all students and others interested in the developments of science throughout history and among the ancient Hindus, in particular.

Have you ever arrived at work and realize that you don´t remember any of the car ride there? Have you ever finished a bag of popcorn and you barely remember opening it? Most people have had moments like this. This is known as mindlessness or autopilot. This causes a buildup of depression, anxiety, reactivity, and stress. It has been proven that the more you let your mind wander, and go on autopilot, the less happy you are. This brings us to mindfulness. Mindfulness is literally the exact opposite of mindlessness. It is the act of waking from autopilot and taking control of your attention. With mindfulness, you are keeping a moment to moment awareness of everything going on around you; your body, thoughts, sensation, feelings, and environment. It also means you are non-judgmental. When you start paying attention you can´t judge your thoughts or feelings. You have to be impartial to it all. Mindfulness is a great practice that can improve anybody´s quality of life. Mindfulness has been around for centuries. An easy way to explain the background of mindfulness is Buddhism. What we know as mindfulness comes from the meditation practices of the Buddhists, around 2500 years ago. They used the meditation to reach inner peace, unlock potential, grow their concentration, and intellectual and spiritual development. Hinduism was old when Buddha was born. Mindfulness had already been a part of the Hindu ways and teaching. Buddha used mindfulness as his core philosophy in his teachings. He taught that life revolved around it, and explained what it meant for everyday life. Buddha had lots of people around him that recorded his teachings, unlike Jesus. 1. Language: English.
