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.

For Hindus, Vishnu is God, who inspires man to discover humanity by engaging with the world. Artists have visualized him with as curlyhaired, dark complexioned man with a smile on his lips and a sparkle in his eyes. Draped in yellow silk, garlanded with forest flowers, bedecked with dolphin-shaped earrings, anointed with sandal paste, he reclines on a thousand hooded serpent that floats on an ocean of milk and rides a golden hawk bearing in his arms a conchshell, a wheel, a mace and a lotus. Poets say that when he is awake, the world takes shape; when he is asleep, the world ceases to be. Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, follows him wherever he goes. To him is made offerings of rich creamy butter. Sometimes, as the upright Ram, he is worshipped across India as Balaji, Shreenathji, Jagannath, Ranganath and Badrinath. Locked in the stories, symbols and rituals of Vishnu is the wisdom of the ancestors, transmitted over hundreds of years. This book attempts to unlock seven secrets that are relevant even in modern times. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sagar Arya.

This is a lyrical and moving new novel from the author of Legend of a Suicide. Aged nine, Caitlin spends almost every afternoon at the local aquarium while her mother works overtime at her construction job. Caitlin´s whole world is her school, her mother, occasionally her mother´s boyfriends, and the fish at the aquarium. She has no friends at school, apart from Shalini, who is making a paper mache Hindu reindeer with her, and no other family. But Caitlin has made a friend at the aquarium; an old man who seems to know something about Caitlin, something she doesn´t even know about herself.
An audiobook in Tamil.The Vedas are the wellsprings of Hinduism, but unlike the majority of religions and scriptures, the origins of these extraordinary teachings are not recorded. No one knows when they came into being, who uttered them first. The Vedas are themselves without beginning or end, like the universe and the omnipresent they describe. Their cosmic reach rivals the grandeur of the most magnificent manifestation of God´s avatars: the Viswarupa.The bhakti movement of the sixth and seventh centuries represented a massive revival of Hindu religion and philosophy. At a time when powerful forces were trying to undermine the very foundation of Hindu thought, these singing sages touched the hearts and minds of millions of Indians with their profound spiritual messages.Their songs and the bhakti they generated rejuvenated Hindu dharma. They made it relevant to all times and all peoples. They embraced the great wisdom of the leading faiths of the world, while at the same time rejecting dogma and superstition. They revealed the glories of the Vedas in their pristine purity to the vast majority of people. They appealed to men and women, people of different languages and backgrounds.The alvars immersed themselves in the ocean of bhakti, they sang the lord´s praise in the most deeply felt lyrics. Full of devotion and humility, certain in their faith, and ecstatic in their fervor, the alvars feared none.If the pasurams or songs of the alvars are soaked in beautiful Tamil, their lives are pregnant with the meaning of life in this world and beyond; they are tales of sacrifice, utter surrender before God, and spontaneous effusion of the most magnificent poetry. Listen to the extraordinary stories of the lives of the 12 alvars, told in the bewitching words of author R. P. Sarathy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jothi Aranga.

This book examines the role of Hindu-inspired faith movements (HIFMs) in contemporary India as actors in social transformation. It further situates these movements in the context of the global political economy where such movements cross national boundaries to locate believers among the Hindu diaspora and others. In contemporary neoliberal India, HIFMs have become important actors, and they realize themselves by making public assertions through service. The four pillars of the contemporary presence of such movements are: gurus, sociality, hegemony and social transformation. Gurus , who spearhead these movements, create a matrix of possible meanings in their public discourses which their followers pick up to create messages of personal and social change. Sociality is a core strategy of proliferation across such movements and implies social service, which is qualified by memories of the guru and what they are believed to embody. Hegemony is reflected in the fact that social service in such movements often ominously imbibes right-wing or far-right Hinduism. They propose a model of Hindu-inspired social transformation , involving faith building into and transforming the civil society. The book discusses in a nuanced way several Hindu-inspired faith movements of various hues which have made national and international impact. This topical book is of interest to students and researchers in the fields of sociology, anthropology, social work, and social psychology, with a special interest in the study of religious movements.

The Selector of Souls begins with a scene that is terrifying, harrowing and yet strangely tender: we´re in the mid ranges of the Himalayas as a young woman gives birth to her third child with the help of her mother, Damini. The birth brings no joy, just a horrible accounting, and the act that follows - the huge sacrifice made by Damini out of love of her daughter - haunts the novel. In Shauna Singh Baldwin´s enthralling novel, two fascinating, strong-willed women must deal with the relentless logic forced upon them by survival: Damini, a Hindu midwife, and Anu, who flees an abusive marriage for the sanctuary of the Catholic church. When Sister Anu comes to Damini´s home village to open a clinic, their paths cross, and each are certain they are doing what´s best for women. What do health, justice, education and equality mean for women when India is marching toward prosperity, growth and becoming a nuclear power? If the baby girls and women around them are to survive, Damini and Anu must find creative ways to break with tradition and help this community change from within. 1. Language: English.
