We published ‘Balabodha Sangraham – Part 1’ last year. We are happy at the good reception that the book enlisted and the interest shown in gaining basic knowledge of books of our Sanatana Dharma. This second part has therefore been prepared for boys and girls of all sections. This contains brief history of some of the great gurus in the Brahma Vidya tradition.
We are familiar with western scholars like Milton, Shakespeare and Shelley. This book provides basic information about the great poets of our land like Mahakavi Kalidasa, Bharavi, Dandi, Magha, Sriharsha and Sri Nilakantha Dikshita and introduces the reader to the great epics they wrote. It is certain that by reading this, interest will be kindled to read the epics and dramas of these great men, which in turn will create love for our Bharatiya culture.
All students, particularly students in Veda Pathasala and students of Samskrit, should go through those works well and develop into great scholars. Those who run educational institutions and teachers should read them, introduce them to the students, motivate the learners in this effort and reap good benefits. All those interested in Bharatiya culture must read these books.
Further we dedicate this book in the Sathabhisheka Varshika Mahotsavam of Sri Sri Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal 69th Sankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham who incarnated solely to remove our darkness.
The book has been prepared under instructions of Sri Sri Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Swamigal 70th Sankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham.
