Back of the book

To have a happy and blissful life, we need many felicities or powers such as the power of will, fortitude, quietude etc. Like everything else, these powers have to be nourished. In some periods of our life we feel peaceful. Later we feel that the peace has vanished from us. The problem is that we are systematically squandering the power of peace without replenishing it. The mantras given in this book help us in establishing the plenitude in us.

 

Dear Reader

A frequently asked question is ‘what is the relevance of Veda in the modern context?’ Our rishis have given the Vedas for the upliftment of mankind. And as long as the human race continues on this earth, the Vedas have a prominent role to play. They are very relevant today because the rishis intended integral progress which is most sought after today.

We call your attention to the familiar Shanti mantras given in this collection. Chant them and meditate on the message; they help to overcome day-to-day difficult situations. Conclude your day with relevant mantras and sleep peacefully.

The Shanti mantras will help you to be in close association with all the cosmic powers and to lead a creative and harmonious life.

It is our concern to see peace pervading everywhere.
