    2. I wish to have the treasure of books [Veda Vaibhavam and Vyakyanam for Sri Lakshmi Sahasram] authored by Sri Dr Navalpakkam Kannan Swamin and request you to furnish the address from where I can get the books.

      I also wish to submit my humble suggestion and request Sri Swamin to consider to publish his article Modern Mathematics in Ancient India in book form.

    3. I was lucky to listen to this lecture and thanks to a swami who gave me this link through face book.
      This upanyasam was very great.I was his student in Central University Hyderabad in 1989-91 and was listening to only mathematical subjects like Real Analysis.
