TESTIMONIALS

I was most impressed by the quick responses to my emails requesting a change of destination for my order. Despite these changes being the week before Christmas, my order was rapidly processed and reached its destination in the US before I got there. Full marks! I will definitely recommend Vedic Books to my friends. Thank you....
