Sri. V. R. Gowrishankar C.E.O. & Administrator Sri Sringeri Math and its Properties.
His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji, the ruling pontiff of Dakshinamnaya Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri, is the 36th in the line of unbroken succession of illustrious Gurus and has been adorning the throne of transcendental wisdom since 1989.
He is a tapasvin of the highest order and is known for His great spiritual eminence and scholarship. He is a shining example of love and compassion.
As the throng of devotees visiting Sringeri to have darshan of His Holiness is increasing day by day, for the convenience of devotees to have comfortable darshan of His Holiness, the Gurubhavanam project was embarked in 2001.
To make that function a memorable event, devotees of Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri embarked upon the task of publishing this book ‘Memorable Moments with a Magnificent Sage’ for the benefit of the astikas. I am sure this book will be a significant contribution to the spiritual community.
The reflections elegantly portrayed in this book bear the stamp of spiritual realization and hold infinite riches in a little phrase. They bring one into acquaintance with everything that can deepen, broaden, strengthen and sharpen the mind. We are not sure whether the matter or the manner of presentation more excels. The language is supreme; the style is compact yet polished and aims at instilling spiritual discipline and in crease of human good.
The earnest and enthusiastic endeavour of Sri K. Suresh Chandar to bring out the luminous intimations of those glorious moments in an ordered and articulated form is really inspiring. The religious aspirant will find in this book a new and holistic approach towards life and experience the joy of spiritual discovery.
In line with its objective of propagation and sustenance of Sanatana Dharma, Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri is making this book available at a subsidized price. I hope all astikas will find this worth possessing, for this will fan the flame of their spiritual aspiration and put them on the right path of spiritual perception for the commencement of a true and divine living .
Sri B.R. Bagri and Smt. Malti Bagri have come forward and sponsored the reprint of this book with their pranams on the occasion of the 60th Vardhanti of His Holiness Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji.
“ Rare are the good persons who are full of nectar of virtue in thought, word and deed; who please the three worlds through the numerous acts of beneficence and rejoice viewing even the minutest good qualities of others as mountain—like." So declares the smruti. His Holiness Sri Bharathi Theertha Shankaracharya Mahaswamigal, the 36th pontiff of Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri is one such rare sage Who, by His inspiring words and deeds, has set standards galore for mankind. Interactions with Him are immensely beneficial. An ocean of mercy that He is, His Holiness blesses all those who approach Him with divine guidance.
Countless are the edifying moments that the devotees have had with this great soul. I have compiled some of them and presented the same in this book for the benefit of the humanity.

Ramasubramanian and Sri ER. Ravikumar for their valuable guidance and contribution to the publication of this book.
