yoga and meditation.

Shree  Pandit has published  numerous articles   illustrating  various

Fundamentals of Hindu Religion  & Philosophy For  All Ages.  This book
was published  in August of  1992 and was  sold out  the  same year. A

In  his talk "Hinduism in  the Modern World",  Shree Pandit will
