  • Your work is splendid. More than your work your knowledge makes us spellbound. Having said that, I have only read your “7 secrets of Vishnu” and viewed half of your Business sutra videos in youtube.

    The point of Ithihas and Puranas as in my understanding and as in what I have heard from learned people is to lead you to understand the veda and upa-veda in a proper way. Which in turn will lead to the Path.

    While the knowledge of sanathana dharma and teachings from mythology like Vidhura Neeti, Yaksha Prasna can help in business etc. shouldn’t the importance be placed on the path and nothing else as it is suggested by elders and learned people. Otherwise will it not lead it to viewing Geeta or any other scripture as business learing books.
