…To you, a life-time gift!

It is indeed exhilarating that this unique Digest has been overwhelmingly received. A number of scholars, writers, readers and students have outpoured their appreciation of this Digest. Inspired by this, the Digest has been enlarged, with more valuable articles time and again. But this latest seventh edition sees a big leap in its content and intent with over one hundred invaluable articles and tit bits.

I am sure each article in this Digest is worth lakhs. The uniqueness of this work is that you need not read it at a stretch, and more interestingly, you would love to read it again and again very many times in your life-time!

The greatest discovery of one’s life-time is one’s own self! Ever since the times of the first ever self-development treatise to mankind, namely Bhagavad Gita, man’s untiring efforts to evolve continues. Gita’s dictum, ‘Yogah karmasu kousalam!’ (Excellence at work is Yoga!) is the inspiration for this masterpiece.

The famous saying, “If I am not for myself, who else is for me? If I am only for myself, then what am I for?” may inspire you to spread the goodness of this unique work.

In bringing out this Digest, Sri Balu T.R.’s intellectual assistance in editing, and Sri S.Venkatraman’s participation in proof-reading, are greatly appreciated and acknowledged.

Though I am privileged to have written several books, this Digest has provided me with immense happiness in tracking and crystallising several of my deeply felt thoughts and flashes. In addition, in many places, I have also adopted with gratitude, famous quotes and thoughts of great personalities, which further added value to the Digest.

The fact that lakhs of readers swear by this Digest, shows how extraordinarily it is patronised. I am sure, this is truly a life-time gift to any quality reader! You will cherish reading it again and again, and everytime, stupendously stand to gain!

All the Best!
Dr. J.N. Reddy
