Scriptures and Sacred texts like the great Epics and Puranas anci other Spiritual literature of our great country the BHARAT point out that human birth affords a valuable opportunity to strive for Liberation-the ultimage goal of life. The means for attaining this is spelt out in the most convincing manner in the several anecdotes from the lives of great devotees and Men and Women.

Though the God is the Supreme Being He is accessible to His-devotees and he is the only one who can offer liberation. He is also full of Compassion towards one and all. Hence if one approaches Him with sincerity and devotion, His is ever ready to protect and give refuge. It is also emphasized in the Sacred Scriptures that the role of service to the devotees is as much as to Him. There are besides the great devotees, persons, men and women in our Epics and Puranas who have made great sacrifices made great charities and shown courage and self-sacrifice of even their lives in helping others in distress and the downtrodden. It is also evident from reveral anecdotes that he, the Supreme Lord of the Universe has hastened to rescue a countless number of devotees (his Bhaktas) in distress.

An attempt is made in the pages that follow to give anecdotes from our Spiritual literature like the great Epic’s the Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Mahabhagavatha and other Spiritual literature and present them to the readers in brief and simple language.

The reading of these anecdotes, it ia earnestly wished and hoped, will have constructive impact urging us in our lives to try to follow the foot-steps of these great devotees, men and women and go forward towards the achievement of the purpose for which we are born as human beings in our great country the BHARAT which is famous for Spiritual Heritage since ancient times.
