Description
Introduction

India is the land known the world over for its spiritual traditions.

Infact this constitutes the very foundation bedrock of all religious and philosophic streams that have flourished in this country. Spiritualism has two major dimensions: One deals with the nature of supreme Reality, the Universe or the Cosmos. The second dimension concerns the moral values and laying down the path of liberation. We may add yet another element which follows from the spiritual Tradition, namely, universal brotherhood. Spiritualism aims at evolving a society consisting of ideal men and women. So, on the one hand spiritualism has metaphysical element and the other concerning the individual salvation.

We have selected some of the major Indian spiritual traditions for our study for creating awareness about the above said theme. We are passing through a phase where we as a nation and world on the whole are on the brink of destruction. Violence in all forms is rampant in 'every nook and corner of today's world. Modern war technology seems to threaten total annihilation of mankind. Taking into consideration our own country, we find collosal loss of sense of moral values. Divisive tendencies, regionalism, inter religious collisions are daily affairs.

It is imperative therefore that we must find a way out to redeem ourselves from a situation like this. It is high time that we remind ourselves of our ancient wisdom and heritage which can give relief and peace to mankind. In our title we have made a special reference to Sikh philosophy in this context. It is because it shows the path, a practical way to mitigate the self- created suffering. Too much dose of materialistic civilization has to be combated one way or the other. Spiritual traditions are rich in their contents to show us the way and their teachings holdout hope and an assurance for the redemption of mankind.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
