In this autobiography, readers will find a new document of absorbing interest. Ranking amongst the small number of authentic histories of the soul, this book is one of the few classics bequeathed to us by mystics and saints of yore.

Devendranath Tagore's spiritual quest into his own self traces the history of not only his life, but of the stages of development of the reformist schools of Hinduism in Bengal - the Tatwabodhini Sabha, set up by Devendranath, and its merger later with the Brahma Samaj of Raja Ram Mohun Roy, Devedranath subsequently became a leader of the Samaj, which flourished under his able guidance. The book brings out all the travails of life and society in the mid-nineteenth century Bengal.
