About the Book

Lord Vishnu has been worshipped by numerous great devotees from all over India, who had reached a saintly status. The twelve devotees, known as Azhwars, from Tamil Nadu, were believed to be the incarnations of the various aspects of the Lord. For the Azhwars the devotion to their Lord was the very breath of their great poetry, compiled together as Nalayira Divyaprabandam, stands as a testimony of their unflinching faith.

The stories of the Azhwars have been part of the literary and philosophical feed that many of the Tamil people have lived and grown up on. These have been rendered in this volume in simple language by lakshmi Venkatraman, accompanied by the beautiful illustrations by Lalitha Thyagarajan.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
