This book, ‘Vedanta, Holy Mother, Ideas and Disciplines’, has been compiled mostly from published articles in journals and books. These are a collection of self contained articles and not a planned book. Those who are interested in a particular topic and not its entire philosophy or background may find these separate treatments more useful.

These topics had been dealt with separately as lectures, essays, television talks and university lectures. There will be repetitions of ideas and language. They have often been retained for the sake of clarity and completeness of the topic.

The articles on Holy Mother had been written for periodicals, needing shorter ones. They will still be useful in this way. But they have been put in a continuous form. Some freedom has been taken I removing too many capitals of familiar Sanskrit words, and even appellations of God, and quotation marks.
