Great saints and devotees of the Lord give purpose to this material world and its history by their presence; their absence renders this world useless and its history a chronological record of nonsense. By providing another glimpse  into the ways that pure devotees transform the lives of material¬istic people and alter the course of history, Naimisaranya Prabhu has done great service to all English readers, especially Vaisnavas and aspiring Vaisnavas. Without  such information, people tend to doubt or forget that another plane, beyond the mundane, exists and even controls the destiny of that mundane plane. In the examples they set in their lives, however, saintly persons help us to see  the path to Krsna consciousness. "Example is better than precept." The philosophy of Krsna consciousness remains inaccessible except by the mercy of the pure devotees whose behavior gives three dimensions to such  philosophy.Only the hearts of unfortunate persons will not melt upon reading or hearing this moving depiction of the life of SriIa Ramanujacarya. The nectarean subject matter and the competent rendering by Naimisaranya Prabhu  combine to produce genuine spiritual effects within the mind. I hope Naimisaranya Prabhu will continue producing such illuminating accounts of the lives of great devotees.
