ANANDA KATHABYACARYA NAGINA(Translated by Mangal Behari)Acarya Chandranathji has written in his foreword to ."I consider Acarya Nagina, a great devotee of modern times, as Bhaktiraj, the King of Devotees". Baba Himself said, "Nagina is a true lover of Justice, that iswhy I love him...".Naginada however, frequently refers to himself in deprecating ternvand it is this humility, together with unflinching honesty and self-analysis, that makes notonly a collection of inspiring stories about Baba and a much beloved devotee, but a practical guide for all sadhakas.No-one who has grappled with their own discipline, practices and failings, can fail to be inspired and encouraged by these stories of a fellow spiritual wayfarer also struggling, but nevertheless being both favoured and lovingly guided by his guru.Naginada's doseness and familiarity with Baba makes him seem at first, a world apart; then his self-confessed weaknesses and unwitting mistakes allow us to identify with him and feel that perhaps we too, can be accepted so closely and lovedso intimately by Baba.is truly a handbook for every person on the spiritual path.ANANDA KATHABYACARYA NAGINA(Translated by Mangal Behari)ContentsPage NoForewordiMy Father Babuji by DipankariiiEditors NotexvAuthor's ForewordxviiIntroduction1Chapter One3October 1953: My friend Chandranathji and my vision of Baba.
