"A unique remedy for today’s maladies"
Both Mahatama Buddha as also the great Maharshis of earlier times have given us recipes to dispel all the ills and miseriesof men and to ensure them happiness. Mahatama Buddha startedwith sorrows, as he declared that the entire world is full of sorrowsand to ensure relief is to leave off all desires.
