This illuminating volume has been specially written for those who are soaked in Western philosophic thought and the scientific method of arriving at conclusions. These Essays in Philosophy are not based on mere belief or superstition, not on mere scriptural injunctions and declarations, but on good reason backed by the personal experiences of a living Sage of Self-realization. As such, they are bound to appeal to, and transform, people of all shades of thought and opinion.
These essays were first serially published in the monthly Journal of the Durban Branch of the Divine Life Society, The Path to God-Realisation and have had a very good reception in South Africa, especially in view of the fact that the use of Sanskrit technical terms, inevitable in most dissertations based on Oriental Scriptures, has been kept to the barest minimum. We do hope that this presentation will appeal to the mind and the heart of modern English educated youth of all nations.
