“I have benefited immensely from reading the book 'The Great Hindu Tradition' authored by Sarma Sastrigal” said
Sri Balasubramanian at the function. “I wish that the book is read by more young people since it has a wealth of information so lucidly put in such simple language. The section on frequently asked questions is a good reference guide to base your life on” he said.
