The books play an unlimited role in bringing the youth in a disciplined manner. The need of the hour today is to give guidance and good books to the youth in order to improve their life style.
The lectures and writings of Swami Vivekananda made a great impact by producing successful and renowned people. Based on his ideas Monks and scholars have written many books in English and Tamil. It is your duty to see that these best books are available for the students and the youth. For that we have formulated a scheme called EVERYWHERE VIVEKANANDA.
We have selected 100 books each in Tamil and English from 900 titles published by Sri Ramakrishna Math so far and introduced a ”New Pack”. This pack contains books on Self improvement, self confidence, concentration, memory power, yoga, meditation and also Sri Ramakrishna and Sarada Devi’s life history and teachings.
Price details of the packs are given below:
LANGUAGE TOTAL COST SPL DISCOUNT OFFER
TAMIL Rs. 6000/- Rs.4500/-
ENGLISH Rs.7250/- Rs.5500/-
We would request you to take part in the Holy service by buying the New Pack and distributing the same as gift to thousands of schools, colleges and Libraries. The books are packed in a compact packing and sent to you by Roadways. We can also send the books directly to the Library/School/College of your choice.
We will take up an oath to see that the books of Swami Vivekananda are available in all the schools, Colleges and Libraries before 12thJanuary 2014, the birthday celebration of Swami Vivekananda. We should realize that our country as well as individual’s growth is based on our assimilation of Swami Vivekananda’s message.
