About the Work ...
The publishing of the book Hindu Dharma was made possible with the help of many persons. The students of B.I.T.S. Pilani assisted in the data entry of this book, into a usable electronic form. The designer of the web site then converted and processed the data to suit the structure of the web site, to have the structure mirrored in a database, to automatically include a Picture of Sri MahaPeriyaval, and so on, and also to maximise updates and regular maintenance. See about this site for more information on how this web site is designed/ structured.
A note by the Students of B.I.T.S., Pilani
We, the students of Birla Institute of Technology and Science (B.I.T.S) Pilani, feel highly honoured in adding the text of "HINDU DHARMA", a collection of discourses, delivered by His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi Mahaswamigal to the existing website of Shri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam.
'Spreading the tenets of Sanatana Dharma to various corners of the world, with the precepts of Veda as the basis', was the fond desire of Kanchi Mahamuni.
We are extremely fortunate in disseminating His valuable and Universal teachings throughout the world. In this humble contribution, we feel in the same way, just as the squirrel must have felt, when it contributed pebbles for the construction of Sethu (bridge) to Lanka, along with Vanara Sena, to fulfill the desire of Lord Rama.
We are extremely grateful to our Director Dr. S. Venkateswaran, for his kind support and encouragement. We would like to acknowledge the guidance and motivation rendered by Prof. K.E. Raman and Prof. M. Ramachandran, in the development of this work. We thank Prof. S. Gurunarayanan for providing us the necessary facilities.
Our thanks are also due to Dr. (Mrs.) Meenakshi Raman, for her valuable suggestions. We take great pleasure in acknowledging the untiring efforts of Mr. Bahadur Singh Jangir, without whose technical help, the project couldn't have been completed.
The sincere and devoted contributions of Messrs. S. Subha, N. Sankara Narayanan, S. Chandrasekar, R. Ashok, R. Prabhu, S. Manikantan, S. Balamurali, M. Jeyandrasankar, G. Srinivasa Raghavan, C.Shankar, K.Praveen, C.N.Ganesh,T.Mohan Kumar,V. Balaji Rajan, K.Shankar, R.Chandrashekar and R.Anand require special mention here.
Special thanks are due to the following friends for helping us in typing and proof reading the text: Mr. Lalit, Mr. Puran Chand, R.Vasanth Kumar Mehta, Manoj Kannan, S. Radhakrishnan, S.Harish, S.Nagarajan, S. Gopal Ram, S.K. Rasool, P. Muthuvel, K. Praveen, R. Raghavendran, R. Vijay, K.Harikrishnan, Ramakrishna Gaddi Patti, S. Rajaraman, V. Jagannathan, S. Sunderajan, Mohanan, R. Karthik, R.Nagarajan, N.S. Narayan, T.R. Chandramouli, S. Pradeep Kumar and M.G. Subramaniam.
This work is the culmination of the sincere and devoted efforts put forth by we, the students, over two months, in our spare time, after our studies. In spite of our best efforts to ensure that the text is error free, still, some errors might have inadvertently crept in. We pray that the same be condoned.
During the execution of this work , we could actually perceive Paramacarya's blessings, which acted as the catalyst for completing the work within the targetted period. In fact, one and all of us felt sad when the work was completed as we felt that our special communication with Him had come to an end. May His divine grace, guide our future lives, and bless us with more such opportunities to serve His divine cause.Pilani
