Deriving inspiration from Swami Vivekananda’s exhortation that the highest philosophy must be put in concrete moral forms so that anyone can grasp, Swami Vimurtananda, under the pseudonym of Bhamathimaindan, had written several stories that were published in Sri Ramakrishna Vijayam, the Tamil monthly published from Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai.
This book is a collection of English translation of twenty-five such stories. It offers eternal messages packaged in imaginative stories of real-life significance under the title Speaking Flute that conjures up visions of Sri Krishna from whose mystic flute divine music issues forth in recurring waves. The slender volume is a good example of impeccable story-telling. It is ideal for non-detailed study by school students.
