HOLY GEETA by H. H. Swami Chinmayananda
The Holy Geeta is a modern Commentary on Srimad Bhagawad Geeta by Swami Chinmayananda. Although there are many commentaries on the Geeta, it is the careful analysis and brilliant reasoning of Swami Chinmayananda's version that makes it so exceptional. There is a constant attempt to bring forth from each shloka not only its literal meanings but also its hidden import that reveals a wealth of information.

IN INDIAN CULTURE WHY DO WE by H. H. Swamini Vimalanandaji & Smt. Radhika Krishnakumar
Though we have in our culture a large number of customs and traditions, we follow them mechanically without understanding 'why'.
Why do we light a lamp in our pooja room?
Why do we do pradakshina in a clockwise direction?
Why do we fast?
and many such interesting questions are answered in this little book. It is a boon to both parents and Balvihar sevaks, as they can answer many of their children's queries with its help. And all the more so to the lay public as many Indians are still unaware of these aspects.
