About the Book

A poet and art-critic Nilakantha Diksita (17th century A.D.) stands supreme among the galaxy of writers of eminence. His works pertain to different branches of literature and are considerable in number. He has to his credit Mahakasvyas, Laghukavyas, Nataka, Campu, Agamic texts and commentaries. His poems overflow with humour and suggestiveness makes them relishable.

Nilakantha was a many-faceted genius who occupied different positions of political power under influential rulers. But his mind was engaged in the constant search for truth which prompted him to retire to the banks of Tamraparni to lead a life of piety till his soul merged with the Supreme Being.

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.
