Prof Krishnamurthy was also trained systematically in the traditional Hindu scriptures by his father Sri R. Viswanatha Sastrigal, a scholarly exponent who was himself a living example of the ideal Hindu way of life. Over the years Prof. Krishnamurthy has given several successful lectures on Hinduism, the Ramayana, the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, and Srimad Bhagavatam to Indian and American audiences. His expositions have been acclaimed for their precision, clarity and an irresistible appeal to the modern mind.
The purpose of this compilation "Thoughts of Spiritual Wisdom" is to spread spiritually oriented thinking across the world among those who have a basic urge to rise beyond the mundane. The main pattern of the book is the variety of its compilation by which it opens out windows to a spiritual panorama. Each page may trigger a new train of thought, the source of which is right on the same page. To put it mathematically, most of the thought-quotations indeed have a gradient for steepest ascent with optimum step size towards a Hindu environment.
The origin of the book goes back to the compiler's practice in 2017 to post one such thought on his Facebook page daily during the year. No title was posted for any of the thoughts except to serially number and date them. Readers were invited to suggest a heading or title for each of the thoughts as they appeared daily and that was how the heading on each page of the book was evolved. A look at these titles of the thoughts and the list of their author-sources will itself be an eye-opener into the extensive mansion of spirituality. The uniqueness of this book is that it is indeed an outcome of crowdsourcing of thoughts, opinions, arguments, counter views by scholars across the world on social media giant Facebook.
