Generally Hindus practice certain rituals and practices, without knowing the utility and significance thereof. This book explains the reasons and justification lying behind such practices, which will dispel myths, misgivings, disinformation and the slander campaign unleashed by vested interests.Ancient Hindu religion is like a vast banyan tree. Since times immemorial various types of beliefs have been gaining entry into it. Due to constant thought process its gravity and ongoing convictions and beliefs have changed its well established disciplines, as a result of which its branches and sub-branches grew in much volume and depth.But do all such beliefs and convictions stand on some scientific pedestal? This question has been baffling the mind of intelligentsia. The time has passed off when treatises were often quoted to justify the adage that whatever is uttered by the saints is a testimony. Hence, it is a crying need of the hour to dispassionately ponder over ancient beliefs in the light of contemporary realms of scientific and analytical approach.After reading the book, the discerning readers will feel to have been guided, enlightened and motivated to practice Hindu beliefs with more determined desire and inclination. In a way this book is a treatise on Hindu traditions, beliefs and practices.
