Universal Hinduism: Towards a New Vision of Sanatana Dharma | Author: David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri) | Pages: 214 | ISBN: 9788185990897
Universal Hinduism is the latest title (fall 2010) of Pandit Vamadeva Shastri (David Frawley) on the Hindu tradition and its global relevance. It follows his several best sellers in the field and his books on Hindu Dharma which have gone through more than twenty reprints in India since 1994. The book explains the relevance of Sanatana Dharma not only for the past but also for the future, not only for India but for all countries. Notably the book explains how Hinduism can be of universal and eternal value and yet have its own special identity among the religions of the world.
The book features introductory notes by Sri Sivananda Murty and by Frank Morales (Sri Dharma Pravartaka). Sivananda Murty is one of the most respected Sadgurus in India today with a large following in Andhra Pradesh. He heads the Sivadvaita Shaktivishta tradition of Yoga and is closely connected with Ramana Maharshi’s teachings and is well known for his insight into Yoga, astrology and classical Indian music. Sri Dharma Pravartaka is one of the most important western teachers of Sanatana Dharma and has written several important books on related subjects.
