Preface to the eleventh edition

While the tenth edition was being exhausted we were getting read to bring out the next edition after comparing the press copy with the first and second editions. Some minor variations of reading and punctuation were noted and we have corrected them accordingly. Let us hope the present edition will be welcome by the readers of this classical study of the life and mission of a spiritual personality of our age.
