"Baligondu Nambike-'A Faith for Life'-is one of DVG's most popular and profound works. It is the summation of his philosophy of life. In this small work, based on his own contemplation of life, he has made a wonderful-and successful-attempt towards synthesizing a practical philosophy of life that is easy to understand and can be adopted by everyone... While DVG has written this book in a lucid style, it never becomes dull; it is lively to read and lovely to contemplate upon. The wisdom contained in this work is sublime and eternal, but nowhere does the author make it pedantic or preachy. In this short work, DVG has practically given the distilled philosophy of the East and the West that has great value for our quest to lead a simple and sublime life." (From the Foreword by Shatavadhani Dr. R Ganesh)
