I discovered this book browsing Amazon and last week I ordered it to see what it’s like…
I have to tell you, this is a really cool book!
It’s designed to teach children puja steps and prayers to various Gods, so it is clear and bright and easy to read. Unfortunately, in the Amazon version it does not come with the audio CD for hearing the pronunciation of the Sanskrit. Another version is available from their website.
There is lots of detail about pujas and how to perform each step.
I have been frustrated that there aren’t more “learn how to pray” books for new Hindus, so this one is wonderful to have found. I highly recommend this for new Hindus and Hindu parents.
Go to the Amazon link and click “See Inside” so you can get a taste of what the book is like.
It seems that it is part of an overall program to keep Vedantic tradition and knowledge alive in young Hindu Americans. The group also offers “Awareness Seminars” to various different groups, such as young people, couples, married ladies, etc. I don’t know anything about this organization except that I really like this book and I’m glad I purchased it!
