About the Book
Man's quest for knowledge is from times immemorial. Mr. Madan Raheja's book provide answers to over 150 questions that often beleaguer even the most intelligent mind. Mr. Raheja calls the answers as 'Vedic Answers', because all his answers are based on °Vedas'. ,
The rationality of the answers given in the book gets further fortified by logical interpretations given by the great philosopher saint of the 19th century-Maharishi Swami Dayanand Saraswati (1824-1883) in his monumental works like 'Satyarth Prakash' (Light of Truth), 'Rigvedadi Bhashya Bhumika' (An introduction to the Commentary on Vedas) etc. Where necessary, Shri Raheja has very nicely strengthened his answers by quoting appropriately from 'Upanishads', 'Smritis', 'Darshans' and other scientific literature available on ethics and physical sciences.
An intelligent reading of the book removes many cobweb in understanding the intricate problems of life and death, pleasures and pains, birth and re-birth, bondage and emancipation, etc. and corrects many mistaken notions about God, Soul and Matter. Mr. Raheja has been quite successful in elucidating and putting forth the Vedic theories and concepts, specially related to the theory of creation, worshiping of God, practice of yoga and philosophy of action in their true perspective. h
For the enlightenment of the self and God-realisation, the book undoubtedly serves as a valuable guide and can be considered as a must for one and all in every family and society.
