Book Description


An ardent believer feels greatly secured in the hands of unseen divine Protector who is sometimes seen in human form of flesh and blood. The story of Sri Shiva Chidambara Dikshitaru is one such God's play in this mundane world. Sri Shiva Chidambara (18th Century) belonged to Murugodu of Karnataka state and became very popular by his devotion and miracles.

The life-history of Guru Sri Shiva. Chidambara Dikshitaru is beautifully narrated in such a captivating way that readers' attention is enthralled while going through the traditional sacraments extold all along in this text.

Putting his heart and soul in a prayerful mood Prof. Saligrama Subbaramaiah has transcribed this work resembling an ancient (Puranic) scripture.

I trust that devotees interested in spiritual sadhana will be definitely benefitted in going through this book of enormous value.
