About the Book

This is a philosophical and a religious book that a reader will be able to read, understand and remember. It should be viewed as a "Pocket guide" for all Hindu temple devotees. The author chose to write this book after realizing the complexity of traditional Hindu temple ceremonies and rituals. It is a fact that a majority of regular temple attendees (Devotees) are not aware of symbolism and significance of multitude of Hindu gods idols and various religious activities. We as parents cannot afford to be ignorant if we need to instill interest and create incentive in our future generation. We were deprived of this subject as we started our education at India. Living in America and raising our family with values must include a sound knowledge of our rich Hindu scriptures

I highly recommend that the reader carry this book and periodically refresh their memory.

About the Author

I was born and raised in INDIA and followed my late father’s foot steps of being a physician.  I graduated from University of Mysore Medical College in 1964. During my high school years, I knew exactly my passion in life, to become a baby doctor. I stayed on the course surrounded by well-rounded family life and became one.

By pure sincere efforts of my own and proper channeling by my respectful elders, I was able to attain all my post graduate training in general pediatrics, allergy asthma and clinical immunology at Brown University (Rhode Island) in the early 1970s.

I became Board certified in both American Board of Pediatrics and American Board of Allergy and Clinical Immunology soon after the training. By this time, I was married and was a householder with three children.

My only final move was from the fast track life of the East Coast to a more laid back, family oriented lifestyle in the Midwest.  I practiced General Pediatrics and was able to incorporate allergic disorders into one solo practice from 1974-1996.

At present I live in Lima, Ohio.  I chose to work for the local community hospital after I retired from private practice in1996.

As I have outlined in the preface, my second passion about book writing surfaced after I had a face-to-face encounter with a divine living personality in India in early 1998.

My entire outlook on life changed at that point. This book is dedicated to HIM first and my family next.

I currently have been happily married for over 36 years and I have four grandchildren across the United States.

This book of mine is written with a specific message to caretakers who have such a powerful tool to create any type of personality they wish. Being responsible for their actions, one must remember to sustain normal life; only good actions should be instilled in an empty computer brain of a child. Any exploitation of this freedom will result in dire consequences.
