Eternal Wisdom of India traces the evolution of religion through the ages as well as the way it affects the very structure of mankind.
Assessing ancient ideals, it highlights the way the power of religion has been abused and analyses religious and social tensions. Its emphasis on universal brotherhood encourages readers to draw inspiration from the Buddha, Mira Bai, Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Chaitanya, Sarada Devi, Swami Vivekananda and other great leaders who have preached the message of peace and tolerance.
Delineating the Ramakrishna-Vivekananda movement, this book provides fascinating insights into the way the awesome power of religion has been manipulated to create strife around the world, as well as its eternal power to heal and provide ethical guidelines in the midst of turmoil and confusion.
