"shAradA peethada mANikyA"

"shAradA peethada mANikyA" - is about one of the greatest saints of India, Jagadguru Sri Chandrashekhara Bharati Swamiji, of Sringeri.

This is a wonderful book, authored by Sri S K Ramchandra Rao. The book is written in Kannada; In what can be called a classic account of the life of the Jagadguru. The book is not a complete biographical interpretation, however it does give a wonderful glimpse about the life & times of HH Sri Chandrashekhara Bharati Swamiji.

It has been a wonderful experience to read this book - again & again. The narration is simple and exhaustive; in that the language used is apt and conveys the message with great precision and clarity.
