Sri Narayan Guru: An Appreciation
Sri Narayan Guru: An Appreciation
Description
Publisher's Note

In continuation of Bhavan's Eternal Values Booklets Series 1 to 20 which have received a warm welcome by the discerning reading public, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has pleasure in bringing out its Eternal Values Booklets Series 21, by Poojya Swami Ranganathananda under the title, Sri Narayana Guru: An Appreciation. It is our hope that this booklet will also receive the same enthusiastic response from the readers.

Sri Narayana Guru: An Appreciation contains the speech delivered by Swami on the occasion of Sri Narayana Guru Birthday Celebrations, Rangoon, Burma, 1940.

As Swamihi Says, in the great work of reform and consolidation in the wider fields of India, the ideals and methods of Sri Narayan Guru are bound to be an unfailing source of inspiration and guidance. In all that he was and in all that he did, Sri Narayana Guru stands as the supreme symbol of hope and redemption to the depressed classes of India.

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
