  1. Dear Dr.Cherian Eapen,
    I was blessed to get a set of Philokalia and I find no words to express my gratitude towards your gracious gesture in sharing this Gem with fellow Christian Truth seekers.I have read; rather interacted; with these series of marvellous books more than 5 times repeatedly and have prepared an INDEX at the beginning of each book of important quotations so that it can be referred easily in future.The great impulse which initiated your urge to publish it free of cost is so much valuable for sure in heaven’s perspective.Thank you so much.
