The Immortal Tales
The Immortal Tales
Description
Preface

It Is Often Quoted that the knowledge bank in the form of scriptures has been kept beyond the reach of the common man due to the language in which the same were written. To make the same available to everybody, we see an age-old practice to present the knowledge in the form of tales — this practice our most revered saints and sages followed successfully in imparting wisdom. This technique seems to have been followed in other religions also. Continuing the same tradition, "The Immortal Tales” is being presented in simple language and style to appeal to the general reading public who may be interested to know what is contained in the treasure house of the Hindu religious and spiritual literature.

Back of the Book

The readers are hereby being presented with a bouquet of forty-eight short stories in the form of the Immortal Tales. Each of the story is unique with an elegance and aroma of its own imparting a divine message to the readers.

In fact distribution of the divine messages through short stories is an age-old practice, since earlier the same had been kept in such a form that only wise and learned could reach the same.

The stories are being told by several people from time to time and it is quite possible that some readers might have heard them in a different form than what is stated here - hope they would enjoy reading them in this form as well.

The writer offers his salutations to all those pious souls who had presented the divine messages to common persons in whatsoever form earlier.

Sri Ramakrishna devotee and IITian Arun Deva Bhattacharya (born 1942 at Allahabad) had a knack for spiritualism and music from an early age which made him run to profoundly wise people frequently. As such spirituality co-existed in this technocrat’s life.

Entry to spiritualism and divinity was easier for him since he had free movement in English, Hindi and Bengali along with working knowledge of Sanskrit. Out of his presentations Bengali translations of Ramacaritamanasa and Bhagavata Purana, and Bhagavater Manimukuta and Bhagavata Ratnavali (in Bengali) are worth mentioning.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
