The central theme of discussion in this monograph revolves round the problem of man's self-transformation in the midst of an artificial and soulless civilization. According to the author, the solution to the problem lies in a synthesis between ‘the two principal traditions of India'—Yoga and Tantra which he defines as philosophy and practice. In his view, only on a successful synthesis between the two depends the full flowering of the individual, and only ‘a transformed individual can become a nucleus for fundamental social change'.
The Secret of Self-Transformation is at once an indictment of all sorts of monstrosities that go under the banner of modern science and a call for revolutionary change within man himself. The call also goes out for restructuring the world in such a way that man does not become a creature of technology but rises up as a master of his true self.
The discussion takes place within a compass of twenty chapters. The richness of ideas, presented in a lucid and convincing style, attracts readers of all paths.
