He has written many books on Vedanta for Chinmaya Mission which include “Vedanta The Science of Life” and the popular textbook for study group leaders - “A Manual for Self Unfoldment”. His last book “Indian Integrated Management” a textbook for Management students and entrepreneurs, was published by Arsha Vidya Pitham, Coimbatore and launched by Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati himself.
