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.

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
