Book Description
About the Author

The author came into close association with the monks of the Ramakrishna Order at its Bangalore Centre in 1935. He joined the Order formally at its Karachi Centre in 1943, when the later well-known Swami Ranganathanandaji was the Head of the Ramakrishna Math, Karachi. (Now he is the Vice-President of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission.) Then he served in different capacities in several Centres of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, including in the editorial department of the Order's journal Prabuddha Bharata and of the monumental Cultural Heritage of India at the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Calcutta, besides acting as the Assistant Minister for two years at the Ramakrishna Vedanta Centre in London.

During his long association with the Ramakrishna Order for over 60 years, he had the opportunity to make a comparative study of Vedanta and Science in their higher aspects and their approach to the discovery of the ultimate Reality of Existence. He contributed to journals several articles on this subject and the present book is the result in which some of these articles are brought together dealing with the different aspects of the subject.


When this author came to be closely associated with the Ramakrishna Ashrama at Bangalore in 1935 as a young student of 16 years, he came under deep influence of the profound thought and great life of Swami Vivekananda by studying his writings and speeches as well as by the discourses in the Ashrama and the talks and discussions with the Swamis of the Ashrama. Swami Ranganāthānandaji, now the Vice-President of the Ramakrishna Order, was one of the inmates of the Ashrama. He was very popular with the young; himself being young (27 years) and dynamic, he mixed with them freely. He was a great lover of Swami Vivekananda, addressed by all in the Order as the 'SWAMIJI', and used to inspire the young with the life and thought of Swamiji and enthuse them to work for the ideals which he had placed before the nation-the uplift of India in social, economic, and spiritual fields, as a means for the regeneration of mankind as a whole.

We had good grounding in the great life and world-wide activities of Swamiji, his profound and comprehensive thought, and his universal vision and ideals. During his two visits to the West between 1893 and 1901, lasting about 5 years in all, commencing with his epochal Address at the World Parliament of Religions at Chicago in September 1893, Swamiji had given his universal and beneficent thoughts on the problem of the harmonious unity of religions, based on the true and broad religious spirit of the divinity of man and the solidarity of the universe and its beings, which had been realized and developed in India by its sages from ancient times and presently illustrated in the life of Sri Ramakrishna, the prophet of the harmony of religions.
