Brahma

Extremely difficult subjects need to be repeated and presented from different perspectives for a better grasp. Brahma-vijnana (science of the creator) is one such knowledge which requires several interpretations. Hence there are  many works on different aspects of Brahma-vijnana. Two of them are Brahmachatushpadi and Brahmasamanvya (given below).  In this  volume, several aspects of creation have been explained. 
 

Brahma

In this volume, Pandit Madhusudan Ojha has explained the concept of chatushpad Brahma. Given here are four aspects —paratpar,  avyaya, akshara and kshkara. However, Ojhaji has included an additional aspect which he called nirvishesh, considered even higher than paratpar.
 

Brahma

This volume deals with the establishment of brahmavad by Brahma, practical aspect of Brahma, practical aspect of Maya and the outcome of the interaction between Brahma and Maya.  The first book listed here is the Hindi translation of Ojhaji’s book by Devidut Pandit Chaturvedi and the second one contains a commentary on the subject by Giridhar Sharma Chaturvedi in Sanskrit.      
 

Veda

This volume contains several anecdotal historical accounts. The work is divided into two sections. The Vaigyanikopakhyan deals with the story of Prajapati Kashyapa’s wives, Katu and Vinta, and their offsprings.  In the Vaidikopakhyana, saplagni vak, agniduthopakhyan, apatyopakhyan and devayajnopakhyan are examined.-

 

This is a concise work on svarga or heaven. Ojhaji has dealt with various classifications of svarga, like bhaumasvarga, pitrasvarga and devasvarga and has underlined their meaning and difference on the basis of different shastras.

 

Dharma-shastra

This volume explains the daily ritual of sandhyopasana or evening prayer. What is the importance of the evening prayer? What are the reasons for carrying out rituals like ardhyapradhan, suryopasthapan, pranayam? What is the spiritual basis for these rituals? Ojhaji has explained these and many other questions related to the evening prayer in a scientific manner. 

Earth, water, air, sky and fire are considered as five elements of life But are they the basic elements? This was the theme of discussion organised at the Benares Hindu University in 1935. Here, various scholars presented their divergent views on the subject. Ojhaji was one of the speakers at the meeting and this is the collection of his views on the subject. Such compelling was his argument that these indeed were the basic elements of life that the conference readily accepted the proposition.

Yajna

This is an important work on the subject of devatas under the category of yajna. The book, like others in the series, help understand the meaning of Vedic terminology.

Dharma-shastra

This is a monumental work by Ojha ji on the subject of aashaucha (loosely translated as impurity). In this book, Ojha ji has explained the true meaning of dharma, its characteristics and effect. Over the ages, due to ignorance about the Vedic terms and lack of knowledge on the part of teachers, humanity has  strayed from the path of dharma. The path of righteous living had become impure. Through this work, Ojhaji has given new insights on how to  reclaim the lost path of dharma.

 

Veda

In this work, Pandit Madhusudan Ojha has unraveled the true meaning of terms like `devata` (deity), `pitr` (paternal ancestors) and `rishi` (sage) etc, as given in the Vedas. These Vedic definitions had been lost for several generations before Pandit Ojha decided to study the Vedas.
