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.
