Description
Introduction

The object of the series is to offer the general reader authentic accounts of the life and work of great figures who have contributed immensely to reform the Indian society.

The present volume deals with the life and contribution of eight saint reformers from various regions of the country. All of them have been champions of a casteless and classless society and have stood for harmony, peace and unity. The messages and deeper thoughts of these saints are as much relevant today as they were several centuries ago.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
