Description

 

From the Jacket:

 

Nammalvar holds a high place among the poet-saints of Tamil Nadu. 'Come, poets' cries this saint-poet, 'if you want to live, labour with your hands and earn your bread with the sweat of your brow. Why sing a rich man's praises? And who is really rich on this earth? I see no one. Sing of your gods.'

In this well-written monograph, the late Prof. Srinivasa Raghavan introduces to the readers the Alvars in general and Nammalvar in particular; explains the four works of Nammalvar in detail; comments on Nammalvar's 'inner life', his Journey to the Real, as revealed in his poetic outpourings; summaries Nammalvar's philosophy and poetry. The author has brought to his task a lifetime's reverent intimacy with the poetry and personality of Nammalvar; and within the limits of this monograph, has done abundant justice to the achievement of Namalvar as Bhakta, god-intoxicated singer and inspired poet. The numerous illustrative quotations read well in English, considering the fact that Tamil mystic poetry like Nammalvar's defies translation.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
