Temples of Tamilnad
Temples of Tamilnad
Description
From the Jacket:

This book "Temples of Tamilnad" contains legends of the mythological and philosophical aspect of the temples of Tamilnad from very early times. The Sthalapuranam of each of the temples has been vividly described bringing out the particular significance of each temple. This is a treasure-house of the glory of the temples dotting Tamilnad, as the reader will find for himself.

The 63 Nayanmars of the Saiva Sect and the 12 Azhwars of the Vaishnava Sect poured out their fervour in praise of the idols installed in each of the temples.

No wonder that the people of Tamilnad worship these Nayamars and Azhwars for their devotional fervour and for their dedication to the spiritual development of themasses. Their poetic outpourings not only swayed the masses but added to the richness of the Tamil language.

About the Author:

Shri R.K. Das (born 11th March 1906) comes of Boudpur village, district of Balasore, Orissa, which is the center of learning and culture, and is reputed for its Vaishnava cult working under the spiritual guidance of Srimad Ram Das Babaji of Nawadwip.

Shri Das took his M.A. in History in 1930 from Patna University. He went to Burma and learnt salt manufacture. In 1937, he returned to Orissa to start investigation into the possibility of salt manufacture, and published his valuable reports on the trade. With the creation of the Central Excise and Salt Department, Shri Das was taken up in Central Government service, and he served in many places in India. The last lap of his service, extending to nine years, was in South India.

Retiring from the Indian Salt Services as an Assistant Commissioner in 1961, Shri Das accepted the post of Project Officer (Salt) under the Industrial Development Corporation of Orissa Ltd.

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.
