The introductory chapters take one through the main principles of Hinduism. The greater part of the book—about 100 pages—is devoted to answering a number of questions frequently put by seekers and householders, under the title “Conversations with Gurudev”. This section is most enlightening.
This book is an excellent reference guide for devotees. It also discusses the occult causes of some of the problems today, like violence, disruption, accidents, murders, etc.
Through the courtesy of the trustees of Anandashram and Sri Aurobindo Ashram, some extracts have been taken from the works of Swami Ramdas, Mother Krishnabai and Mother Mirra.
