Tales From The Upanishads Book Excerpt:

The word Upanishad literally means 'sit down near' for the student had to sit close to the teacher to receive instructions. Perhaps, what brought the two still closer were the stories the Guru narrated. These stories provided a meaningful context for the topics under discussion. They also demonstrate that in those days knowledge was not the monopoly of any select group. Thus Janashruti, the ruler of the land, approaches the cart driver Raikva, with humility, to seek the highest truth.

Religion and Identity in South Asia and Beyond Book Excerpt:

This volume brings together sixteen articles on the religions, literatures and histories of South and Central Asia in tribute to Patrick Olivelle, one of North America’s leading Sanskritists and historians of early India. Over the last four decades, the focus of his scholarship has been on the ascetic and legal traditions of India, but his work as both a researcher and a teacher extends beyond early Indian religion and literature. ‘Religion and Identity and South Asia and Beyond’ is a testament to that influence. The contributions in this volume, many by former students of Olivelle, are committed to linguistic and historical rigor, combined with sensitivity to how the study of Asia has been changing over the last several decades.

The jackal has a bad reputation in the animal world. Devious, selfish, dishonest and boastful, his aspirations are high, but his talents few. He seldom repays a favour.

Two Birds in a Tree Book Excerpt:

The Higher Reality of Business The health of business is inextricably linked with the health of humanity and nature. But our current approaches to leadership treat business as entirely separate—and the result has been recurring economic, environmental, and human crises. In this extraordinary book, Ram Nidumolu uses evocative parables and stories from the ancient Indian wisdom texts, the Upanishads, to introduce Being-centered leadership. This new kind of leadership is anchored in the concept of Being, the fundamental reality that underlies all phenomena. Being-centered leaders are guided by an innate sense of interconnection—the good of the whole becomes an integral part of their decisions and actions. Using the experiences of over twenty trailblazing CEOs, as well as those from his own life, Nidumolu describes a four-stage road map every aspiring leader can use to reconnect business to the wider world—to the benefit of all.

365 Stories from the Vedas the Upanishads and the Puranas Book Excerpt:

This book introduces children to the rich treasury of Indian wisdom and cultural heritage through the 365 handpicked tales, one for each day of the year, from the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Puranas. The collection is faithful to the ancient texts available and presents them in a simple and concise form suited to the young reader. The beautiful illustrations bring to life the gods and demons, the benign and cruel kings, the sky-spirits and animals that populate its pages and send across messages to children-inspiring them, cautioning them, and charging them. The philosophy of our enlightened sages encourages one to think deeply and imbibe the unique values and morals presented in each story. For adults too, it can be a reminder of values getting hazy.

Kama is reborn as Pradyumna, the son of Krishna and Rukmini, who is prophesied to destroy the demon, Shambara. Aware of the prophecy, Shambara decides to steal the baby from Krishna's palace and kill him while he is still helpless. But he has not counted on the fact that Rati, warned by Narada, is watching over Pradyumna as a maid in the demon's own palace.

Draupadi Book Excerpt:

This dark beauty was no ordinary woman. Born from the pure flames of a sacred fire, Draupadi was devoted wife to the five famously talented and virtuous Pandava brothers. The evil Kauravas wanted her for themselves, and eyed the Pandava kingdom as well. Raging at their impertinence, and ranting at her husbands’ helplessness, Draupadi inspired a deadly war which wiped out the Kaurava scourge for ever.
