This work is absolutely free from prejudices and blindly biased views. It is a critical study of the science and practice of spiritualism with impartial and dispassionate views.
Unlike many of the books on Spiritualism, this work has a special feature of its own. It pages do not narrate the legends and tales of ghosts and other supernatural beings, as one in most finds in such books that claim to unveil the mystery of the world beyond the grave. The treatment of the subject is purely a scientific one, and it has taken a new departure from the prevailing methods and systems of presentation of this subject.
It gives an impartial or dispassionate view on spiritualism showing wisely and ably its merits and demerits, its bright and dark sides as well. All the problems of soul, pre-existence, immortality, reincarnation and eternality have been clearly solved by the philosopher-Saint Swami Abhedananda in these lectures with the remarkable characteristics of his own.
