     Because of wrong beliefs regarding the above mentioned Elementary questions, people (& the society) suffer a lot and fail to understand as to how spirituality can help them in their worldly jobs / works.

    By having clarity of views on these topics, we can stop dividing our society in different sects and unite it. CLEAR VIEWS ON THE ABOVE MENTIONED ELEMENTARY QUESTIONS BASED ON TRUTH ARE THE ONLY SOURCE OF UNITING OUR SOCIETY.

    Today, there is no material in our society which can provide answers to all these basic questions at one place.  The purpose of this work is to bring together answers to these basic questions of life at one place. All the answers are based on Vedic thoughts.

     Now, the question arises as to what is the surety that the given answers, which are contrary to todays’ beliefs, are right? In reply to this question, I can say that whatever has been said in the answers to the above said elementary questions are supplementary to each other. This fact can well be known through analytical mind. Despite my effort to give special importance to logic & rationality on all the thoughts, readers may notice shortage or lack of logic & rationality at some places. The reason of this is to avoid evidences in Sanskrit language.
