BOOK ACCESS

Here is a partial list of books of the Narayana Gurukula, those that I consider worthwhile reading, including all the most important ones. Several of these I consider among the most significant books of the twentieth century, of immense value to anyone seeking truth. When I get time I’ll write more descriptive reviews, but this will suffice for the nonce. Feel free to email me any questions about them.

 

Available either from me (rsteitsworth@yahoo.com) or DK Printworld (dkprintworld@vsnl.net), website: dkprint.com or Varkala Gurukula, Srinivasapuram PO, Varkala, Kerala, 695-145, India. Indicated by (Scott) (DK) or (Varkala) respectively. If you live in the US, I have several extra copies of most of the books, and will be happy to send them. Prices may change. DK prices are estimates that include postage.
