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.

The level of customer service provided by you was amazing ! No other Indian Web services, except very few, are giving customers this kind of detailed attention. Thanks Exotic India, I got the book yesterday.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
