This anthology on practical Vedanta is a collection of my essays on various aspects of practical Vedanta, as expounded by Lord Krishna and as applied by Swami Vivekananda in the nineteenth century and Mahatma Gandhi, Sri Aurobindo and Ma Anandamayee in the twentieth century.
The essays appeared in various issues of Ananda Varta since 1954, Ma Anandamayee Amrit Varta since 1996, Abhigyan since 1996, Vedanta Research Centre Souvenirs since 1997, National Seminar Papers on Shree Shree Anandamayee Ma (1997), Bulletin of the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Calcutta 29 (July & August, 1999) and my book on reminiscences of Anandamayee Ma (1997).
However several factual mistakes, discovered in the original articles, have been corrected in this anthology. They have been documented in footnotes of each chapter. It is quite natural that many repetitions will be found in the text, as the same author has approached the same subject from different angles at different times in different publications.
This is a sequel to my last book on Bhauta Vijnan, Tantra and Vedanta, published in Bengali from Calcutta in 2000 A D.
