Here is an excerpt from the forward of Reflections on Sacred Teachings vol. 1, Sri Siksastakam:
“He explains eternal truths in a way that enables a contemporary audience to appreciate them. He opens up the doors to the treasure house of Vedic wisdom, and somehow, without diluting it, he gets us to walk in, to take off our coats and shoes, and to feel at home. Before long, we are immersed in Vedic knowledge, in a comfortable and down home kind of way. Soon after, we are ready to partake of a friendly dinner in the company of Vaisnavas, and that dinner is comprised of the most succulent fare: bhakti. This book is a prime example of this phenomenon, and so, without any further distraction, I ask the Swami’s readers to enthusiastically dine on his nectarian words.”
