Vedantic Tales

Sister Gargi (Author)
Synopsis Sister Gargi's book gives a sextet of lighter vein in these six Vedantic Tales. In Vedantic Tales six interesting stories from the ancient Indian literature have been retold by Sister Gargi (Marie Louise Burke) In simple English, and tastefully illustrated by Brahmacharini Prajna. Through primarily intended for children and teenagers, these absorbing stories will be equally enjoyed by their parents. Most Hindus will be familiar with the parables upon which these tales are based, having heard them since their early childhood. But these are not children's tales, Sister Gargi insists. Parables are not, and never were, meant for children; they bring messages from the realm of the spirit to the adult, particularly to grown-up adult with ears to hear. Their simplicity is not childish; it is, rather, the simplicity of an arrow - pointed and swift, and fashioned to strike its mark without ado.'

About the author

Sister Gargi

Sister Gargi, also known as Marie Louise Burke, is the author of the well-researched and highly acclaimed sis-volume work on Swami Vivekananda's life in the West. With equal care, she has thoroughly researched this present biography of Swami Trigunatita, not minimizing the difficulties the great Swami Faced and overcame in his pioneering work in a strange land. The Swami's sweetness of character, his formidable will-power, his indomitable strength are all brought out in this book, which presents him as a real person-lovable, loving, indefatigable, and a giant of spirituality.
