Story of Eight Saint Reformers
Description
Introduction

The object of the series is to offer the general reader authentic accounts of the life and work of great figures who have contributed immensely to reform the Indian society. Their contribution has been in a large measure instrumental in shaping the cultural ethos and thought of India and influencing the minds and lives of the people. The series include life stories, messages and reform movements carried out by seers and philosophers, poets and dramatists, mystics and religious leaders, writers on science, aestheticians and composers. The present volume deals with the life and contribution of eight saint reformers from various regions of the country. All of them have been champions of a casteless and classless society and have stood for harmony, peace and unity. The messages and deeper thoughts of these saints are as much relevant today as they were several centuries ago.

Fotis, Greece

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
