Book Description

With his vow to remain truthful at all times, Harischandra successfully faced the rigorous challenge posed by Vishwamitra. Though a king, he sacrificed everything he had at the altar of truth, including his kingdom, and even his wife and son. He took so lowly a job as that of the guard at burning- ground; even in the case of his own son he demanded the prescribed fee for cremation, which his wife had no means of paying. On an order from the king Harischandra even prepared to behead his wife. Harischandra’s character is indelibly etched in the mind of Hindus.
