This volume comprises the largest collection of Shri Ram Swamp's writings ever published between two covers. Many of the articles have been printed for the very first time, and they span a period of over four decades.

The book includes critiques of Christian and Islamic thought from a Hindu perspective and suggestions on how Hinduism can be practiced in modern Times in tune with its deeper Spiritual teachings. It also incorporates several short articles and book reviews written for various Newspapers and magazines.

The volume is divided roughly into three sections dealing with Hinduism, Christianity and Islam respectively. In each section, the reader will come across writings on many different Topics illuminating the Dharmic perspective on numerous issues of modern relevance. These writings show Ram Swarup's profound understanding of social, historical, Religious and spiritual issues and also illustrate how Dharmic principles can provide a solution to problems facing humanity today. The author's writings offer a compelling intellectual and spiritual defense of Hinduism vis-à-vis competing world-views, and provide for a practical way to put Hindu Renaissance back on track.

Ram Swarup was a unique thinker who not only showed an acute awareness of modern challenges to and distortions of Hindu traditions, but also suggested practical Remedies that were rooted in the perennial Hindu spirituality itself. He demonstrated the universality of Hinduism in space and time and its ability to adapt itself to ever changing conditions in our world, even while retaining its core principles. As the excesses of materialism, consumerism and Terrorism in human Societies become more and more debilitating, Shri Ram Swarup's expositions of Hindu thought and spirituality acquire a greater relevance and significance in providing Solutions to humanity as a whole.
