The Teerthas: Hindu Pilgrimage (A Journey Through The Holy Places of Hindus All Over India)
The Teerthas: Hindu Pilgrimage (A Journey Through The Holy Places of Hindus All Over India)
Description
Back of the book

As humans, we lead a life full of struggle and strife. During trying moments, we might knowingly or unknowingly indulge in actions that may be sinful. After a certain time, the wrong actions start weighing us down, and our conscience prods us to atone for our sins. That is when we consider visiting a teertha. Where we can go and ask for forgiveness. Such a spiritual journey is termed as a pilgrimage or teertha yatra, which is one of the distinguished facets of Hinduism. Though, undertaking a religious journey is not mandatory in this religion, still a number of Hindus visit the teerthas every year in search of peace and enlightenment.

Most of the teerths are located in calm and secluded places surrounded by the pristine beauty of nature. These places may be near a water source, a mountain or a forest. Their environs are further sanctified by the presence of the holy men and their regular mantra chanting. Such places provide immense peace to the soul.

Hindu Pilgrimage – The Teerths takes you on a mental journey to such spiritual places in India. The book discusses in detail Chaar Dhaam, Himalayan Chaar Dhaam, Sapt Puri, Dwadesh Jyotirlingm, Panch Sarovar, Sapt Sarita, Divya Desam, Shakti Peetha, Yatras and also some of the famous temples in India. Enhanced with vivid and exclusive pictures, the Book brings the places alive and Inspires one to make a pilgrimage to these holy shrines.

 

About the Book

Hindu Pilgrimage- the Teerthas is a product of Hindoology Books, an imprint dedicated to exploring Hinduism and revealing its various colorful features. In this book, we have tried to step into one of the most revered territory of Hinduism, that is, journey to various holy shrines in our country. The book is a comprehensive study of all such spiritual places, which includes even the minutest details of the myths and legends associated with them, the rituals prevalent and the way puja is performed there.

The content of the book is segregated into various units providing a more systematic and organized approach to the book. Enriched with lively pictures, the book is exclusively designed to surpass the highest standards of content and production, which makes it a true value for money. We acknowledge the contribution of all those who have been instrumental in the making of this encyclopaedic work at all the stages of its planning and production, including the editorial inputs from Mrs. Seema Gupta.
