New Delhi, August 25, 2017: Life takes a 360 degree turn at the most obscure times and brings us to a sudden halt. For most people this could turn into a life shattering change but for some it could turn into a life changing opportunity. An opportunity to delve deeper into our lives and take stock of it before it is too late. Aavirbhaav-Hindu Deities Guidance & Meditation Cards, by well-known spiritually inspired artist, guide and communication professional annu kalra, offers just the perspective and guidance. This very exclusive offering was conceived and crafted to present the matchless concepts and beliefs from the rich Indian culture and presented it in a self help format of Guidance Cards. “Aavirbhaav” was launched today at the Constitution Club of India in a gala event.

The book and the cards are beautifully designed and printed. I commend annu kalra for her imaginative production.”

If it currently eludes you, to search for it far and wide is your right and you should make it a priority. The self help set of Aavirbhaav Hindu Deities Guidance and Meditation Cards can aid your efforts at experiencing greater well being”.

About the Book
Aavirbhaav- Hindu Deities Guidance & Meditation Cards is a book for the intelligent questioning person caught between the spectrum of belief and non –belief; which is really a large majority of Urban Indians. While the hypocrisy and mumbo jumbo of fundamentalism has alienated him, his quest and belief in the ancient Sanatan Hindu dharma has not completely disintegrated. It is not without reason; the ancient people were very intelligent. They created elaborate systems of rites and rituals to aid people in their self -discovery and self-actualization, idol worship being one of them. Over time those became empty rituals due to their being followed in a mechanical way and also having been handed down as a diktat rather than with appropriate explanations and scientific rigour.
