(With Shlokas & Instructions in Sanskrit & Tamil)
I am pleased to write a brief note here on the new books released by Gopalacharya Janma Shatamanotsava Samiti, Chennai. As you are aware, this samiti has already published many books including “Mantra Stotra Mala”, Narayana Varma and Sundara Kanda. The Mantra Stotra Mala book along with the Audio CD is very popular and has reached lot of our madhwa homes. Recently the samiti has released a new book “Devapuja Paddhati” in English and Tamil. This is a translation of the original book “POOJA RAHASYA” in Kannada by Sri Vidyasimhacharya, Mumbai.
The above book is translated in Two languages:
In English –

In Tamil –

Full Translation till the End

This book will be very useful to the English knowing devout Madhwas. Similarly in Tamil version too, there are several charts attached and though the matter discussed is very tough to comprehend, one will be able to easily understand the Tamil translation and follow. It is doubtful that if we have any other book ever released under the heading “Devara Pooja” with so many details like this.
