Description
GENRAL EDITOR'S PREFACE

In continuation of Bhavan's Eternal Values Booklets Series 1 to 19, which have received a warm welcome by the discerning public, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has pleasure in bringing outs its Eternal Values Booklets Series: 20, by poojya Swami Ranganathanandaji, under the title "what life has Taught me." Swamiji wrote this article in compliance with Bhavan's request. Our humble Pranams and grateful thanks to Swamiji. As is characteristic of Swamiji, it give wholesome food for though and is inspiring.

Swamiji says: "If national maladies exist, our nation has effective remedies. In many countries today, remedies applied are worse than maladies. This truth, yes this truth, and not a false national claim, will make us realize that the present total erosion of values at high levels is a passing phase. We had such experiences before also, and our nation will learn to apply the remedies and build up, during the next century, a progressive, humanistic and peaceful democratic polity and society".

The Bhavan prayerfully offers this volume in our Eternal Values Booklets Series to the public. We are confident it will be widely welcomed.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
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.
