Edited by Swami Chetananda of the Vedanta Society of St. Louis, USA, this book with a forward by Christopher Isherwood, is an important contribution to understanding of Vedanta in the western world. It is a judicious and representative selection from the works of the most articulate expounder of Vedanta.
A rich storehouse of inspiration and guidance, this selection represents the best of the Orient and the Occident, the finest of the ancient and the modern.
Though this work will appeal to the general reader, it should be widely used in courses dealing with Indian civilization, comparative religion, and Eastern philosophy.
