  1. Easy to understand and MUST READ Poem. I am reading the Gujarati version. I just wish that both versions had the actual Sanskrit Mantras added therein. Yes, I know, would become too long but than, it also helps me to understand Sanskrit. Any chance of uploading Sanskrit version some time ... Please
