Swamiji says: "If national maladies exist, our nation has effective remedies. In many countries today, remedies applied are worse than maladies. This truth, yes this truth, and not a false national claim, will make us realize that the present total erosion of values at high levels is a passing phase. We had such experiences before also, and our nation will learn to apply the remedies and build up, during the next century, a progressive, humanistic and peaceful democratic polity and society".
The Bhavan prayerfully offers this volume in our Eternal Values Booklets Series to the public. We are confident it will be widely welcomed.
