PREFACE
The daily sessions which the Swamiji holds with varieties of visitors to the Ashram
attract people from different parts of the country and abroad, since these occasions
provide to people a homely atmosphere to express their longings, their questions, their
enquiries and their difficulties which range over a wide area of human life. This book
consists of the answers that Swamiji furnished to the queries of the visitors during a
period of several years, which have been tape-recorded, transcribed and edited for the
purpose of publication, since it was the wish of everyone that a book of this kind, when it
reaches the hands of seekers of knowledge, would remain as an interesting guide-book,
a medium of reference, and even an entertainment on an intellectual and spiritual level.
It is hoped that this new publication, novel in its kind, will adequately bring relief to the
seeking spirits who long for enlightenment.
