Description
Back of the book

A first hand account of two of India’s great sacred shrines on the sea shore with details of their legends and religious and historical significance particularly in relation with swami Vivekananda Holy mother Sri Sarada Devi and other disciples of Sri Ramakrishna.

Publisher Not’s

Rameshwaram and Kanyakumari are two of the most well-known pilgrimage centres in south India. For centuries, they have been sources of inspiration to countless pilgrims and travellers from different parts of India and even beyond. While describing the geographical boundaries of India, Sanskrit literature speaks of India as a land ‘from Kashmir to Kanyakumari’ and ‘Himalaya to Setubandhana (Rameshwaram)’. This speaks of the deep veneration and importance these places of pilgrimage hold in the Indian cultural tradition. No wonder Swami Vivekananda was so keen on visiting it during his wanderings and was later accorded a royal welcome at Rameshwararn on his triumphal return from the West. Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi, Swami Brahmananda, and many other direct disciples of Sri Ramakrishna have visited Rameshwaram.

The following pages contain a travelogue to these two places of pilgrimage. It is an attempt to put together the details of the legends, religious and historical significance, and the association with Swamiji, Holy Mother and other direct disciples with Kanyakumari and Rameshwaram..

The narrator, Swami Atmashraddhananda, is a monk of the Ramakrishna Order and the present editor of The Vedanta Kesari, the cultural and spiritual monthly published from this Math. Both these narratives first appeared in The Vedanta Kesari (Kanyakumari: January- February 2009 and Rameshwaram: August-November 2009).

We hope the book will be helpful to the devotees and pilgrims interested in knowing more about these sacred places.

Thank you. I purchased some books from you in the past and was so pleased by the care with which they were packaged. It's good to find a bookseller who loves books.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
