Book Description

I have been very lucky in many ways and for many things on two counts:

i. That Shiva, Shakti, Saraswati and Shri Ganesha have always showered their blessings on me and saved me on numerous occasions and in different ways. I always pray to them. The readers should also pray.

ii. That my publishers have given me such rare assignments that forced me to keep on reading regularly and tirelessly and to write incessantly on religion, spirituality and modernity, despite the fact that I'm basically a poet. The readers must read poetry as much as practicable and encourage the family members by reciting good poems, good passages and good lines to them. Poetry refines and makes one sublime.

iii. That I wished to write books on different topics but the question of publication and world-wide distribution loomed large. My Publishers ensured the publication and distribution. I had the responsibility to prepare the manuscripts. I'm grateful to them. The readers should also be grateful to them for such rare books.

This helped me immensely. I followed the mysterious directives that my inner consciousness and conscience caught. The result is a series of books for all to know the truth, duties and ways to lead a healthy, happy, satisfactory and prosperous life. Above all, these books will help all to be 'human' first and give humanity the foremost importance.

"Worshipping Surya" is another such book that I longed to write but was not getting the needed information. I kept on collecting something from here and something from there for almost two decades. At the end of 2012, I re-arranged the collected materials and decided to write and complete the book.

Why had I to write the book? I had to write it to tell you what excesses we are committing and how are we destroying not only Nature and natural resources but all the lives and life-giving and life-saving elements. We are destroying ourselves in the name of progress, modernity and infrastructure; knowing well that we can survive only on what the earth gives. Destruction of anything is not progress. If the lustful and heedless destruction continues for another decade, the ever growing population of the world combined together, will not be able to save living beings. Earth, the only planet with life, will change into another lifeless planet. What have we to do? We have to take a determined start now and immediately stop the production and use of luxurious items, garbage and poisons of every type and hue and quality. We have to close about 90% of the factories reducing drastically the numbers of vehicle, trains, ships and planes which are fast destroying the atmosphere, exosphere, oxygen, water, soil and engulfing trees, plants and all sorts of life: insects, birds, water animals, land animals and human beings. If it is not done now then even hundred percent closer of the machines will not be able to save life. We have to do away with our lust and ego and attachment to luxury.

We have to be thankful to the Creator and restore faith in the Absolute God. We must worship gods and natural forces. We may not become godly but we can always be and remain human. We have fallen very low, so low that Supreme Court Judge asks: 'What has happened to men? Have they gone mad?'

We have been claiming that our forefathers were fools that they did not use the resources? Are we wise when we have consumed in less than one hundred years what Nature and earth produced in crores of years? The forefathers must be accepted as the wisest and most humble and must be shown respect for they saved and kept intact all: forests; water bodies and life on the surface of the earth; and heat; gas; minerals and other elements essential inside the earth; for fertility, safe-keeping of seeds, its germination, flowering and fruition. We have destroyed all and destroying the remaining scanty. The destruction on mass scale is our fault; blindness and lust despite most sincere and wise teachings of our elders.

Only a has been taken from Scriptural Transliteration for longer a sound. Rest is as written in government papers; newspapers; magazines and general books. To make reading easier, Samskrit words have been separated by hyphen. It has been deliberately done for the readers.

Now, the book is in your hands to give you insight into remote past; past and present. It is up to you to read, learn and judge; and to decide future action. Whatever you feel or decide, you must pay your respect to Surya at least through arghya for your physical and mental health, peace and prosperity.
