All the stories in this book revolve around the teachings of Swami Paramananda, a teacher who renounced worldly life to adopt sanyas. Even as a teacher, he taught through stories.

His students loved it, since it was easier to comprehend the subject. They referred to his stories as Guruji’s stories.

Guruji would tell students and disciples his favourite stories – each based upon an eternal truth – and explain these in greater detail, if necessary.

Guruji’s stories are based upon popular proverbs on life and living. Each story is inspiring and thought-provoking.

There are stories emphasising the need to learn. Others teach one to differentiate between good and bad. Some motivate listeners to act, encouraging mutual respect, care, compassion and charity.

Based upon real-life experiences, each story affirms an eternal truth. Although meant for youngsters, adults will also enjoy this collection of 50 stories.
