This book is an attempt to chronicle in lucid language the life of a great modern sage. Swami hinmayananda`s life was indeed a saga of extraordinary spiritual strength, love, tireless service and metaphysical reach. When he began his mission, the world`s oldest scriptures were taught only in exclusive pockets, shrouded in orthodoxy, Swami Chinmayananda interpreted and opened up this perennial philosophy for millions of people. His was a life which, in less than 50 years, left behind the legacy of a global organization, hundreds of institution, hundreds of institutions and millions of followers devoted to a single aim, the perpetuity of the nobility in Man.
