Product Description

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

This is an amazing book. Author made it clear that India (present days calling) is not in comparision with recent ages in terms of knowledge. This land did greatest work for human kind and not of any religious base. It is actually sanatana dharma. since the modern age has no other way to group the people, they are trying to tie this great saints land with religion and keeping beside other religions. the one who really try to understand the India, will settle himself there with peaceful enlightenment. This book is giving such direction of knowledge. must read book. Thanks to Udaypal Pai in making this in simple understandable way to the world. it is our responsibility to preserve this great knowledge and pass it on to generations until the man kind realize the truth of life. no matter how you pass it on with name Hinduism or Dharma. if present world is calling this as Hinduism, i feel proud to be Hindu from enlightened land. Thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read. 8 January 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was the need of the hour , especially at this time when people(especially in India) are forgetting about the magnificence of Hinduism and that every ritual/ceremony here has deep scientific roots. The honest and unbiased approach that mr.udaylal pai adepts in his writings makes it a must read for anyone who wants to know the Real Hinduism and how it's different from other Religions/Philosophies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read- Science of Complex Sanathan Dharma Simplified. 10 January 2017
By venugopalnaik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is much awaited book from Dr Udaylal Pai which throws lightly on truly inclusive Sanathan Dharma, which is truely scientific & always amazes us with the fact that it could be scrutinized further with tool of rational thinking, Getting closer to Sanathan Dharma & its core principles in this world of full of many versions & loads of data is difficult. Articles & Narrations by Dr Udaylal pai takes us to the core essence of gems of Sanathan Dharma ie. Upanishads, Vedanta, Puranas etc. Complex topics & teachings made ridiculously simple to understand, It is a best possible gift one can provide to Near & Dear as well as for the Generations to Come.
