In spite of all the advances in the modern sciences mankind isstill grappling with multitude of problems. In fact with all the technological advances the problems faced by mankind have only increased. This is because mankind has not been able to understand its own existence. Since thousands of years mankind has digressed from the real path. This path is now revealed in this book in two parts. Part I of this book exclusively deals with understanding our existence on this earth. This is also Self Realization, Atma Gyan or knowledge of the self. Within this existence and facing numerous problems then what is that one Formula using which an individual can lead a happy, prosperous and fulfilled life? This has been detailed in Part II of this book. This is also the path towards Supreme Intelligence. This is also the path to Moksha. This is the Sanatan Dharma or The Way of Life for Everyone and Forever.

Hinduism for GenNext !On the 23rd of April 2004, I was flying from JFK Airport, New York City to SFO to attend a press meeting at Monterey, California. An American girl was sitting right beside me, near the window.After some time, she smiled and we introduced ourselves to each other. I told her that I am from India. Instantaneously, the girl enquired, "What's your faith?""What?" I asked as I didn't understand the question."I mean, what's your religion? Are you a Christian or a Muslim?" she elaborated her question."No!" I replied, "I am neither Christian nor Muslim."With a perplexed look, she questioned, "Then who are you...'""I am a Hindu", I said. She gazed at me as if seeing a caged animal. She could not understand what I was talking about....- These are opening sentences of my article "Am I a Hindu?" written long ago. Most of the readers would be familiar with this article as this happened to be most shared article on Hinduism for Westerners. Many readers, especially parents of non-resident Indians told me to write a book on the similar line. It took me many years of research and study to complete this book.The 'Why Am I a Hindu?' gives a fresh perspective, mostly with a twist in the tale in a breezy, conversational style that makes even weighty philosophical discussions easy to digest.Opinion of those who read the first few chapters' draft: "A must-read for those who wish to gain a deeper, clearer understanding of issues related to Sanatan Dharma." Ajit Menon. "I find your chapters very thought provoking and insightful. Both my wife and I consider ourselves seekers of truth and enlightenment and your writings evoke great wisdom within this arena. Now, I myself follow eastern spiritual philosophy." Al Sanchez. "This book is a simple gateway to understanding the uncomplicated ways of otherwise seemingly complex Sanatan Dharma through conversations between the author and his friends or readers. The author explains the science, logic and rational of Sanatan Dharma in a very simple, lucid and reader-friendly style. The hardcore Vedic philosophy is made ridiculously simple for the beginners." Anita Sharma. "It is non-fiction, but you can read it as if you are reading a compelling fiction novel. It is really a fun book to read. And you will understand the rational, logic and science of our culture and traditions." Sahana Madhyastha. "This would be the best gift you can present to the younger generation to understand the science of Sanatan Dharma to begin with following which it can be practiced in daily life to avoid stress and lead a peaceful happy life." Josh Matthew

No one can escape Dharma, the eternal laws. Beliefs grow into actions, and action-learning converts to Sankhya, while deeper research requires meditation, i.e. Bhaktiyog, Karmyog, Gyanyog, and Dhyanyog successively. Fundamentalists never comprehend the fundamentals of religion, ironically, nor do the apostates. Ancient Rishi’s quest for survival of humanity in sync with nature forced inquiries into physical and metaphysical realms, discovering spirituality as the basis of Science, Creations and Psychology, which they coded into mythologies and symbols, only to be deciphered in times to come. Basic pillars of Sanatan Dharma, i.e. Purush, Prakriti, Brahm and Yog hide sciences. The element of ubiquitous spirit in us warns naturally. Sanatan Dharma explains ethical hierarchies, egalitarianism and utilitarianism, with intent to establish Summum Bonum. People from different culture and religions think alike due to triguna nature, which applies beyond man-made religious boundaries. Rishis searched for the truth honestly, Later politicization created today’s religions. At core, all religions are the same, and hold the key to oneness globally. Does Yoga compare to Trinity in Christianity? How Prophet Mohammad, got enlightenment while meditating in the Hera Caves? Big Bang theory of creations has a mention in scriptures, from the smallest dimensionless source to infinitely expanding universe? Lord Vishnu rests in a serpentine bed in Ksheer Sagar (or milky way); from his naval evolves Lord Brahma, the solar system, Terrestrial gods pray Him. Cosmological hierarchy is depicted as Lord Brahma Vishnu Mahesh? This book logically deciphers symbols and myths, meant to define humanity.
'Seat of Action' or the position and responsibility one holds, are dedicated to
various factions in society. True understanding of Dharma would shatter

Highly philosophic content of Vedic chants is made simple enough for students as young as 5.

In June 1976, Bhavan’s Journal, a Bombay cultural and religious magazine, sent various religious and spiritual leaders a questionnaire looking for enlightened answers to some of the perplexing questions of the day, such as the place of religion in modern society. One recipient of their questionnaire was Srila Prabhupada, who took the opportunity to make a thorough presentation of the ideal Vedic civilization, show the faults of modern society from the viewpoint of transcendence, and offer practical solutions based on Krishna conscious teachings. His answers to the questionnaire were later compiled and published in this compact and lively book.
