  1. Thank you a million times for making
    'Laghu Yoga Vasistha - English Translation' available.
    Peace !

  2. The work is commendable and deserves all appreciation. Hindu's are responsible for the sad state of their rich enlightened heritage gradually waning and vanishing ibto thin air.The late Pt. J.L. Nehru never highlighted the great works of ancient sages born and nourished humanity in thevland called Bharat. The naming of the country as India was the outcome of sick political conspiracy to denegrate the way of life called HINDUISM as a Dharma or religion and severely hit by using SECULARISM as a cult to anihilate True Human Dharma. Let all those who appreciate the wisdom of great sages unite to bring back the thoughts and philosophies of all noble saints born and illuminated human race.

  3. True, True very accurate mr. chandra.
