Hinduism

The Vedas-Rg, Yajur and Sama-have enjoined on the Hindus a number of rites that are to be performed during the succeeding hours of the day. Every moment of one's waking hours, from dawn to dusk, is so taken care of that even if one wishes; there is not a minute to spare for frivolous pursuits. These daily practices have taken cognizance of man's nature-that unless he is compelled by injunction, inducement, circumstances or ambition, he would fritter away his energy and time in chasing transient success-and aim to awaken the mental, moral and spiritual powers lying dormant in him. Rai Bahadur Srisa Chandra Vasu's The Daily Practice of the Hindus describes in detail all the Vedic rites connected with the morning and midday duties. The Sanskrit text, its transliteration, work-meaning, translation and grammatical notes provide the assistance for the understanding of the Vedic mantras. The chapters on Tantric and Universal Sandhya liberates the use of this book from its sectarian confinement. Everyone, irrespective of his creed, shall find this book invaluable; for it caters to everybody's physical and spiritual well-being.
