About the topics:
Bhakti Sudha is a beautiful and thought-provoking set of verses by Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda, giving the essence of the practice of bhakti. Guruji defines bhakti, discusses the nature of devotion, types of devotees, the results that come from it and the ways in which it can be practiced.
'I' am the essence of 'my' life. Without knowing 'I', the knower, the very basis of all knowledge, how can I be truly knowledgeable? Jnana Sara unfolds the path of Knowledge which leads to the knower, the essence of all knowledge. Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda's lovely composition and commentary opens up subtle vistas of thinking which dawns into an exhilarating Self-Realization
