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.

A classic of travel writing, A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush is Eric Newby´s iconic account of his journey through one of the most remote and beautiful wildernesses on earth. It was 1956, and Eric Newby was earning an improbable living in the chaotic family business of London haute couture. Pining for adventure, Newby sent his friend Hugh Carless the now-famous cable - ´´Can you travel Nuristan June?´´ - setting in motion a legendary journey from Mayfair to Afghanistan and the mountains of the Hindu Kush, northeast of Kabul. Inexperienced and ill prepared (their preparations involved nothing more than some tips from a Welsh waitress), the amateurish rogues embark on a month of adventure and hardship in one of the most beautiful wildernesses on earth - a journey that adventurers with more experience and sense may never have undertaken. With good humour, sharp wit and keen observation, the charming narrative style of A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush would soon crystallise Newby´s reputation as one of the greatest travel writers of all time. One of the greatest travel classics from one of Britain´s best-loved travel writers, this edition includes an epilogue from Newby´s travelling companion, Hugh Carless, and a prologue from one of Newby´s greatest proponents, Evelyn Waugh. 1.
