About the author….
Dr Hiro Badlani was born in Sind, now part of Pakistan in 1934. After the partition in 1947, he migrated to India. Dr Badlani got his medical degree in Mumbai and practiced as ophthalmologist in the same city for over 40 years. In 1998, he again migrated to U.S.A. to join his two children who settled there. He wrote his first book Hinduism: Path of the Ancient Wisdom, which got published by iUnivers USA in 2008. The 2nd edition of the book was published in India by New Age Books India, a subsidiary of Motilal Banarsidass Publishers, New Delhi. In 2014, the revised version slightly shortened and with few more changes was published by Amazon.com USA with a new name Essence of Hinduism: Path of the Ancient Wisdom.
The new book contains 242, divided in 57 small, easy to read chapters in story-telling style. It is written in chronological manner, describing all aspects of Hindu religion, culture, and philosophy. The book avoids all complex and controversial narratives; it rather emphasizes the essential unity and homogenity of all the religions. The book has also been acclaimed as a mini encyclopedia of Hinduism.
Dr Badlani has dedicated the last two decades of his life toward the pursuit of his passion of learning and writing about Hinduism. He continues to be active both on “You Tube” (link) and “Face Book” (link) singularly on this subject. His approach to religion is rather simple and straight forward. Dr Badlani strongly believes that “Religion is like a teaching institute, where we learn spiritual teachings of virtue and morality so that we may never hurt or harm anyone; rather we may always help and serve others. Without the spiritual teachings, what other purpose any religion may have?”
