• In the modern age, not many people have faith in the concept of religion. Some question the existence of God and classify scriptural narratives as mythology. Some profess belief in God but disregard the words of the scriptures. Most people do not have a clear idea of 'Who God Is' or 'How to know and worship God', as prescribed by the scriptures.
    This book is an appeal to people, to accept the authority of the bona-fide scriptures and develop or increase their conviction in the existence of God.  
    Through this book, I have tried to address general inquiries or the most common doubts that people usually have in relation to religion or spiritual subject matters.
    I can assure the reader (based on the assurance given by the scriptures) that they will definitely see God, both in His reciprocation, as well as His real form, if they sincerely attempt to follow the recommended process but ultimately it depends on the efforts each individual puts in. The book has reviews by very prominent figures like Hrishikesh Mafatlal, Seth Spellman, Dr. Vivek Bindra, Shyam Upadhyay, Dr. Vaibhav Tewari, Amogh Lila Prabhu, Gauranga Prabhu, Shubh Vilas Prabhu and many others. About Author  - Pratik Desai was born in Mumbai, India in 1984, to a Gujarati Vaishnava family. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Mumbai and a Masters degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the prestigious University of Florida, USA. Being raised in a Vaishnava family, he was spiritually inclined from an early age. During his college years, he watched most of the religious TV series like Mahabharata, Ramayana, Vishnu Purana, Shiva Purana to name a few. While he was not committed to any specific path, he did not miss an episode of these series. Later on, his faith in spirituality was strengthened by grave incidents in his life, which inspired him to question material existence and to seek answers about the purpose of life, karma and the Absolute Truth. Many people want to experience God through miracles but Pratik experienced God through the reciprocations he had with God. To experience God through his loving reciprocations is abig miracle in itself since it is a more tangible experience where one desires to serve God and God reciprocates accordingly. Till now he is ardently practising Bhakti Yoga, is a family man,  and a businessman. This journey all began with the Bhagavad-Gita, which opened up his heart. This book (20+ Must Know Facts About Hinduism) satisfied his burning desire to help people by sharing his experiences, so that they can also benefit from the timeless wisdom of Sanatan Dharma and so that they attain eternal  happiness and experience a higher taste of bliss.

Bhagavata Subodhini unveils the exciting structure and flow of the Bhagavatam cantos by giving the connections between chapters, subsections and verses in a lucid manner for easy readability and assimilation of its contents and delight in the splendor of its message.

    ‘Bhagavata Subodhini Canto 8’ is the sixth volume of the series, and gives a bird’s eye view of the expanse and the depth of the enchanting episodes in the Eighth Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam. The Eighth Canto of the Bhagavatam vividly presents the theme of Manvantara or the reign of the Manus. Manus are the administrators of the universe, appointed by the Supreme Lord. There are fourteen Manus who rule in one kalpa or a day of Lord Brahma that spans over 1000 catur-yugas (catur-yuga is the combination of the four yugas namely Satya, Treta, Dvapara and Kali). Thus, each Manu rules for about seventy-one catur-yugas. In every manvantara, there are six kinds of personalities who manage various functions of the universe. They are: the Manu, the sons of Manu, the demigods, Indra, the seven great sages and the Manvantara avatara of the Lord. In this canto, Sukadeva Goswami describes the six types of main persons in each of the fourteen Manvantaras (past, present and future) in the current day of Brahma, and elaborates selected pastimes of the Lord in some manvantaras. Thus, we hear the episodes of Svayambhuva Manu, Gajendra, Samudra Manthan, Mohini Murti bewildering Lord Siva, Bali Maharaja’s deliverance by Lord Vamanadeva and the pastimes of Matsya avatara. In all these episodes, the Lord’s protection aspect is vividly described.
