Call of the Great Master is an engrossing and lucid presentation of Sant Mat, the teachings of saints, as set forth by mystics past and present. The book is the result of the author's long association with Maharaj Sawan Singh (1858-1948), lovingly called the Great Master by his disciples. The author has the privilege of being close to the Great Master for a period of almost forty years, during which time he has several occasions to be present at the Master's meetings with disciples and seekers.
The book brings out vividly the truth that every person is potentially God. However feeble a person's powers may be at the present time, at root he is God. Baffling questions on God, soul, mind and human life - questions which confront every intelligent and thoughtful person - find easy answers.
Here is a masterly exposition of various subjects, taken for the most part from the actual words of the Great Master himself. The author had the rare opportunity of listening to the versatile exposition of many aspects of spirituality as practiced and preached by various schools of thought, and recorded them for our benefit.
The book deals in abundant detail with Sant Mat (the path of the saints) vis-à-vis the other philosophical and esoteric approaches to the Truth.
