Hindu Pilgrim Centres
Hindu Pilgrim Centres
Description

Preface:

Pilgrimage-ritual visit to holy places-is an essential part of a votary's life in every religion. It is even more so in Hinduism.

Though milk is present in the whole body of a cow, it can be got only through its udder. Similarly, though God is present everywhere, his presence is felt much more tangibly in places of pilgrimage. This is how Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishana puts it, in his own inimitable style.

The places of pilgrimage in India are legion. So also the books concerning them.

However, there is a great need to get the essential information about some of the more important (and popular) centers of pilgrimage, in a concise and readable form.

This book is humble attempt in that direction.

One word of caution! This is not a handbook or guide to the pilgrim centers! Its purpose is only to give general information about them.

We are grateful to Sri B. N. Nataraj who, as usual, has bestowed meticulous attention to make this book elegant and attractive.

-S. H.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
