Thanks to the many seekers for their questions on different concepts of deity, worship and spirituality in Sanatana Dharma, which propelled the author to provide a graded, elaborate response for clarification. The answers herein cover a wide range of topics in copious detail from the most elementary processes to the peaks of Vedanta. Even a random opening of the book can be revelatory.
Prof. V. Krishnamurthy is a former professor of mathematics and the deputy director of BITS Pilani with over two decades of association with that great institution. Born in 1927 into the family of an erudite Vedic scholar, Shri. R. Visvanatha Shastrigal, he has been systematically trained and has drunk deep of the Vedic tradition and Shastras from boyhood. This shines also in the present offering.
He has lectured widely to both domestic and foreign audiences on our ancient scriptures like the Upanishads, Valmiki Ramayana, Shrimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad Gita. He is a voracious writer with more than a dozen books on mathematics, Hinduism and Advaita Philosophy, making their public bow. His latest publication among others is Thus Spake Krishna. In addition, he is a recipient of half a dozen awards and honours for his distinguished thoughts and contributions, the latest being a Grateful2 Gurus Award by the Indic Academy.
