Book – Comparison of Durga Saptashati and Soundarya Lahiri in Hindi with Meaning

The Hindi book titled ‘Durgasaptashati Evam Saundaryalahiri ka Tulnatmak Anusheelan’ compares – Durga Saptashati and Soundarya Lahiri - the two important texts in Hinduism that explores the unimaginable world of the Universal Mother – Goddess Shakti. Mother Goddess is formless and beyond imagination but for the sake of her devotees She takes various forms through which her children can reach her.
Durga Saptashati, in Markandeya Purana, and Soundarya Lahiri, by Adi Shankaracharya, have been guiding the children of Mother Goddess in understanding her diverse forms and attributes. The book beautifully unravels the concept of Brahman that is brought out in the two texts.

Satya Sai Baba Teachings

When you pile up riches, fear and anxiety are also piling up in proportion.
Character makes life immortal. It survives even death. Some say knowledge is power, but this is not true. Character is power.
Life is best spent in alleviating pain, assuaging distress, and promoting peace and joy. The service of man is more valuable than what you call “service to God.” God has no need of your service.
Death is not a deplorable event; it is the journey’s end, the owner getting out of the car when the time is up and the goal is reached. It is a consummation, a happy conclusion, or at least it ought to be, if only all are wise enough to treat it as such and be prepared for it. Satya Sai Baba
