Our country is the birth place of four out of eleven great religions of the world: 1. Sanatana Dharma or Vedic religion as is called by the natives and Hinduism by foreigners (date of origin not known) 2. Buddhism (6th Century A.D) 3. Jainism (6th Century B.C.) and 4. Sikhism (16th Century A.D).
During the period of past two millennia Bharat Matha or Mother India gave birth to many truly great spiritual souls. Their mission was to set right the ills of the society and to guide mankind towards God. They accomplished their mission not by sword or deceit but through compassion and goodness and disappeared leaving their legacy behind for the future generation.
In this book, I have furnished their profile and also a synopsis of their sayings in alphabetical order.
I dedicate this book to the younger generation of our country living in different parts of the world and hope they would be profited by reading, what every Indian should know about those great souls by reading, what every Indian should know about those great souls and take pride in being born as an Indian or to Indian parents abroad.
