Sri Narayan Guru: An Appreciation
Sri Narayan Guru: An Appreciation
Description
Publisher's Note

In continuation of Bhavan's Eternal Values Booklets Series 1 to 20 which have received a warm welcome by the discerning reading public, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has pleasure in bringing out its Eternal Values Booklets Series 21, by Poojya Swami Ranganathananda under the title, Sri Narayana Guru: An Appreciation. It is our hope that this booklet will also receive the same enthusiastic response from the readers.

Sri Narayana Guru: An Appreciation contains the speech delivered by Swami on the occasion of Sri Narayana Guru Birthday Celebrations, Rangoon, Burma, 1940.

As Swamihi Says, in the great work of reform and consolidation in the wider fields of India, the ideals and methods of Sri Narayan Guru are bound to be an unfailing source of inspiration and guidance. In all that he was and in all that he did, Sri Narayana Guru stands as the supreme symbol of hope and redemption to the depressed classes of India.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
