About the Book:-

The ocean of Hindu scriptural wisdom in the form of teachings of ancient masters of the religion is too massive for single individuals. This book presents, however, a compact connected collection of such wisdom from the vast and deep literature on Devotional Hindu Thought. Starting with a comparative study of Sundarakanda in the three monumental epics – Valmiki Ramayana, Kamba Ramayanam and Tulsi’s Ram Charitamanas, it goes on to explain the deeper aspects of Devotion and Prayer through gems from the Bhagavatam and also through brief accounts of lives and achievements of the greatest devotees, saints and masters who modelled Hindu thought over the centuries.
