About Chinna Katha (Vol. 1) :
Bhagawan interjects his discourses with small anecdotes pregnant with meaning which clarifies lofty concepts. He calls each of these anecdotes as "Oka Chinna Katha" (one small story). The Chinna Katha, if only we ponder over its relevance, is an effective instrument in Bhagawan's educational process. When He is discoursing, these parables and stories, ever on the wing, hover in flocks in the firmament of his love; He lets a few fly into our hearts and nestle there, until we fondle and foster them and make them part of our thought and behaviour patterns.
The Chinna Kathas, ostensibly meant for children, are equally relevant for elders since they have deeper meanings and exalted moral at the end to ruminate on for all.
