Update: Madhvacharya’s Lineage “GURU CHARITE”

Madhvacharya’s Lineage  “GURU CHARITE”  is written by Dr. H.K Vedavyasacharya http://www.srsmutt.org. I was sent the pdf of this document by Mr. Shivprasad Dinkar.  Thanks so much for providing such a great document.

During my travel to India, I read this document several times. It has detailed information about all the great saints from our Acharaya Sri Madhvacharya, to our beloved Guru Sri Raghavendra Swamy and also other saints like Sri Vadeendra Thertharu, Sri Sushameendra Theertharu to the current Guru of Sri Raghavendra Swamy Mutt.

I had tears rolling my eyes while reading through the miracles of Sri Raghavendra Swamy, and also the places he visited.

This is a treasure document if you want to learn and know more about all the great saints/Gurus. The document also has songs and slokas, books written by these saints and the places they visited.

All credit of this document goes to the author Dr. H.K Vedavyasacharya and SRS MUTT. I am just providing the pdf to help people know about the great Gurus.

Below is the link to download the document.

Handbook for performing Festivals

I received an email from a mailing list which I have subscribed, which had links to several books on Hinduism. As I was browsing through the content of the web site which had several important books scanned, I found this simple and very well explained book which has details of all the festivals, the rituals which needs to be followed and so on.. This book is in Kannada. You can read the book online or even download a PDF file, whichever is convenient to you all.

Attached below is the link for the book:

P.S: The details for all the many festivals coming during Shravan Masa starts from page 32 onwards.

Book Review – Filthy Rich Clients

Finally, I was able to finish reading this excellent book and post the review. This was a book which I decided to review since client side Java is not really my expertise. But, I am glad I reviewed the book, learnt a whole lot from this book.

If you are planning on purchasing this book, take a look at the review which is live at Javalobby.
