The Majesty of the teachings and the glory of the teacher open the sluice gates of deep peace and give a glimpse of our true nature. In the course of the narration, the doubts, which a seeker may have regarding Vedanta and spiritual practices, are clarified. A devout reader of this text is sure to have the experience of the sacred pilgrimage along with the enlightened Sage, from Kerala to Kedar. Bhakti, Jnana and Vairgaya seep in to one’s heart while absorbing the divine life. In this, the divine story of the Acharya is freely rendered.
