Teaser Tuesday – 2nd Jan #TeaserTuesday

How do you select a quote from a book filled with quotable quotes and life lessons?  But then, it is no ordinary book.  It is one of the two Itihaasas that a Hindu has to be familiar with to understand life.  It is the ‘Ramayana – The Game of Life Series’.  I am currently reading Book 4 of the series called ‘Stand Strong’ by Shubha Vilas.

‘Rituals are like ornaments that decorate the body of dharma.  Following the rituals sincerely but forgetting dharma is like foolishly attempting to hang ornaments in thin air. ‘

The book is ancient text,  but the wisdom is definitely 21st century.

I would love to read your feedback

  1. I absolutely loved the quote you have picked. And it is so apt for the current scenario in India where there’s so much policing around religious norms and culture, without people understanding what they mean. That’s how I interpreted it. Wish you a very happy new year 😊

  2. I’ve read the first two books in this series. I have my own issues with rituals. As long as there is a strong sense behind it, it all is very fake. Looking forward to your review on this.

    1. Thanks Soumya. I felt the lines exactly mirrored my views. I find rituals baseless and do not follow them.

  3. What a fabulous pick for Teaser Tuesday. The book sounds interesting. Currently I’m drowning under a pile of unread ones. Glad to see you posting Lata. Looking forward to reading more of you this year.
