NEW BOOK TITLED " RADHA - THE SECRET GODDESS DEMYSTIFIED"

NEW BOOK TITLED " RADHA - THE SECRET GODDESS  DEMYSTIFIED"

https://www.amazon.com/Radha-Demystified-Dr-Kannan-Srinivasan/dp/1981758127

This book presents a holistic picture of Radha Tattvam duly substantiated by Vedas, Puranas, Tantras and Classical Literature. Radha is unique, divine, authentic, mystic, subtle, esoteric as well as mysterious. In spite of worshipping Radha for a long time, still it is very difficult for many to understand her in the proper perspective. She is undoubtedly the secret of all secrets. As there are  a lot of misconceptions with reference to Radha even among the learned, this book is oriented towards dispelling all such doubts and wrong beliefs in this regard and establishing the true and unbiased position of Radha as embedded in the Vedic scriptures. This book reveals the exalted position that the scriptures affirm to Radha who as the most beloved consort of Krsna enables the devotees to reach the highest pinnacle of Krsna Prema. It presents deeper, broader as well as newer insights into Radha tattvam in a holistic manner answering several key questions about the authenticity, antiquity, role, relevance and importance of Radha.

SRI GODA AND SRI RADHA

SrI RAdhA is MahAlakshmI in the form of NIlA DevI. She is worshipped with intense prema bhakti bhAva by AzhvArs and AndAl (GodA) as Nappinnai. She is also fondly adored as Pinnai. Pinnai MaNAlan is verily RAdhA Vallabha.
Along with chanting of TiruppAvai , chanting of SrI RAdhA KrupA katAksha Stava helps one to gain the ecstatic bliss of Krishna katAksha and His divine association.

I offer my respectful obeisances to SrI Goda DevI (AndAl) who is blessed by SrI RAdhA DevI (in the form of NIla DevI), the nectar like daughter of SrI Vishnu citta (PeriyAzhvAr), immersed in Sri Krishna Prema Bhakti.

REVIEW OF THE BOOK “ THE UPANISHADS DEMYSTIFIED” BY SHRI. VED PRAKASH BHATIA

Shri.Ved Prakash Bhatia deserves all appreciation for his painstaking and nicely presented work titled “The Upanishads Demystified “. He has vividly brought out the essence of  eleven major Upanishads covering Isa, Kena, Katha, Prasna, Mundaka, Mandukya, Taittiriya, Aitareya, Chandogya, Brihadaranyaka and Svetasvara Upanishads. He has lucidly explained  the key philosophical concepts  in terms of Brahman, Atman, Avasthas, Omkara , Panca Kosa, Panca Bhuta and so on. He has also presented interesting and meaningful stories from the Upanishads.  He has beautifully touched upon the ethical values as embedded in the Upanishads. He has been greatly successful in simplifying the complex nature of the  contents of the Upanishads which represent the treasure of the wisdom of our revered Rishis. This excellent book will be of great interest to anyone who is interested in knowing the nuances of Upanishads especially the younger generation. I urge  upon  all those interested in spirituality to make use of this remarkable work. I  wish the author all the best and  congratulate him for his tireless efforts in propagating the eternal voice of the Vedas which transcends all barriers in terms of caste, creed, race , religion or gender.
