Description of product

Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda is recognised as a trail-blazer who almost single-handedly sparked a spiritual renaissance across India in the second half of the 20th century. But few remember that before Chinmayananda, there was Balakrishna Menon, an everyday man with the same anxieties and aspirations as most of humanity and one differentiating quality, the unique desire for the Ultimate Truth that would eventually lead Menon on a quest, culminating in his transformation in the firmament of world religions. In equal parts of stotra (formalised praise) and engaging stories, He Did It! And So Can You commemorates Chinmayananda's inspirational, historic journey. With rigorous analysis and evident devotion, Swami Swaroopananda dissects the 108 Names of Swami Chinmayananda (complied by Swami Tejomayananda) and ties them to real-life experiences with Gurudev, in a bid to illustrate how each epithet not only captures and celebrates a facet of Gurudev's scintillating personality, but also serves a pointer for the rest of us, carving out a path for our own evolution. If only we would be as committed.
