From the beginning of history, religion has been admittedly the most vital force in shaping the human civilization at various developmental stages. India has been the home of religions and diverse schools of philosophical thought from time immemorial. As he great thinker, Havelock Ellis, said Religion grows in India as wild flowers in the forest. It is thus we have a hoary tradition of saints, seers, prophets, etc., who gave us the Vedas, the Puranas and other religious scriptures through the ages. From them have sprung up numerous religions according to the genius and philosophic bent of the founders.All religions aim at giving solace and peace to mind and become a boon to their followers. Through a disciplined mind and body and the golden rule of moderation, all religions, in essence, teach us to be good, dutiful, law abiding and, humane. All religions highlight the brotherhood of man. Yet the world is divided into varying camps. This could be avoided if the fundamental tenets of various religions are carried out by the people in all possible ways. The present volumes may meet this long-felt need of the present day man.
