About the Book :

Wisdom tradition has been instrumental in the evolution and development of core spiritual philosophy of Sanatana dharma and it has played a pivotal role in the continuity and change of Indian culture, society and polity. Wisdom tradition that has been handed down from generations to generations by Guru Paramparas of India has periodically ignited social awakening and contributed to cultural creativity and social change. This tradition which is beyond religion, caste, gender and race, has the power and potential to bind the people of this land with a single string of spirituality beyond religious sectarianism and social segregation. The scientific systemisation and dissemination of the amazing wisdom that we have received from ancient Gurus and Rishis, and especially its introduction in school and university curriculum shall create a new awareness and pride in our young generation about Indian culture. Hence the importance of this volume.
