Description
About the Book

A poet and art-critic Nilakantha Diksita (17th century A.D.) stands supreme among the galaxy of writers of eminence. His works pertain to different branches of literature and are considerable in number. He has to his credit Mahakasvyas, Laghukavyas, Nataka, Campu, Agamic texts and commentaries. His poems overflow with humour and suggestiveness makes them relishable.

Nilakantha was a many-faceted genius who occupied different positions of political power under influential rulers. But his mind was engaged in the constant search for truth which prompted him to retire to the banks of Tamraparni to lead a life of piety till his soul merged with the Supreme Being.

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...
