Description
About the Book

Nathapanth remained a very powerful religious force in the past for long period pervading every walk of life across whole of India. It made immense impact on the scholars, rulers, religious leaders and others. Many rulers were its followers. One of the most valuable contributions it made was that it created an atmosphere of social and religious harmony in the country. For this it had to pay a great price.

Its geographical spread and reach had been unparalleled. It reached even the remotest corners and inaccessible areas like Bir Bhanghal and Lahul in Himachal Pradesh. It spread even beyond the borders of the country to Tibet following after the Buddhism there. But ultimately this powerful wave also fell to become a part of history. Some communities of the sect can still be seen as a distinct social group retaining some old practices. Some of their practices are still being followed with great reverence by all the sections of the society. In Himachal a good effort is being made to collect the oral literature, much of which concern the Nathas, and publish them.

In Himachal a good effort is being made to collect the oral literature, much of which concern the Nathas, and publish them.

During the course of my study I have received help in different ways from numerous persons like Hira Lal of Sharan, Khub Ram Khushdil and many others. As always, C. Dorje of Archaeological Survey of India had been guiding and helping me as and when I requested. I express my deep gratitude to them all. I am greatly thankful to Shri Rakesh Goel of M/s Kaveri Books for accepting the work for publication and bringing it in an excellent form.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
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.
Bernd, Spain
