    About the Book Essentially the work is a compilation of VimalajiÍs letters written to the author who had the opportunity to live with her and witness the rhythmic, pure, meditative life dedicated for the well being of the nations. VimalajiÍs approach in dealing with the author _ sadhaka is an education for all f us, in itself, indeed a practical education. An approach dealing with the particular mind-set of the aspirant but without the imposition of authority. The letters, here, are arranged chronologically and have been assigned fitting titles which are quite expressive of the contents, beneficial to every spiritual aspirant. Most of the letters are in VmalajiÍs handwriting, giving it a feeling of closeness. They pierce the psyche of the readers, illumining our understanding and incisively and persuasively teach that the spiritual and eternal is to be prized above the material and transitory. Review(s) ñFor me, religion cannot be borrowed. For me, religious life is not impositions of theories or patterns of behaviour on oneself. For me, religion is not grafting the experiences of other persons, however holy they might, dead or alive on our psyche. It About the Author(s)
