Letter to a student – a masterpiece from swamy purushottamananda

Posted on: June 21, 2008


The Book:

The book is a letter written to a student who requested guidance from swamy to meliorate his studies. This later became popular amongst other students and got published as a book. This magnificent piece is just 12 page pocket size booklet of abundant knowledge and is a English translation of “Vidyarthigondu Pathra” that is originally in Kannada.

The book provides valuable guidance on:

  • Learning etiquettes
  • Disciplines
  • Respect to parents & teachers
  • Time management
  • Language practice
  • Methods to improve neatness of handwriting
  • Importance of meditation and yoga
  • Secrets of concentration and dedication
  • Diet & sleep
  • Preparation for examination
  • Handling examination stress
  • And many other vital aspects that are considered trivial

Book also throws light on difficulties faced by urban & village students and effective guidance to overcome them. This beautiful book suites for all ages at all times and has power to change anyone who dedicates himself to the guidance presented. I have found people got transformed and share experience alike and pity those who haven’t.

One can avail this book from Ramakrishna Mission situated at Bull Temple Road, Basavanagudi, Bangalore – 19. I was fortunate to get introduced to this book by a member of Ramakrishna Mission at my college campus. I have made sincere attempt to introduce this book to among my peers and others too. And still love to read this book now and then.

Last Word:

If this book can change me then it can change anyone who endows commitment & dedication towards it.
