Born on the 8th September, 1887, in the illustrious family of Saga Appayya Diskhita and several other renowned saints and savants, Sri Swami Sivananda had a natural flair for a life devoted to the study and practice of Vedanta. Added to this was an inborn eagerness to serve all and an innate feeling of unity with all mankind. His passion for service drew him to the medical career; and soon he gravitated to where he thought that his service was most needed. Malaya claimed him. He had earlier been editing a Health Journal and wrote extensively on health problems. He discovered that people needed right knowledge most of all; dissemination of that knowledge he espoused as his own mission. It was divine dispensation and the blessing of God upon mankind that the doctor of body and mind renounced his career and took to a life of renunciation to qualify himself for ministering to the soul of man. He settled down at Rishikesh in 1924, practiced intense austerities and shone as a great Yogi, Saint, Sage and Jivanmukta. In 1932 he started the Sivanandashram. In 1936 was born The Divine Life Society. In 1948 the Yoga-Vedanta Forest Academy was organized. Dissemination of spiritual knowledge and training of people in Yoga and Vedanta were their aim and object. In 1950 he undertook a lightning tour of India and Ceylon. In 1953 he convened a 'World Parliament Reliogions'. He is the author of over 300 volumes and has disciples all over the world, belonging to all nationalities, religions and creeds. To read his works is to drink at the fountain of Wisdom Supreme. On 14th July, 1963 he entered Mahasamadhi.
About the Book:
Brahma Vidya or "the Science of Sciences that enables man to know the very source of Knowledge itself" as Sri Swami Sivanandaji puts it, is the precious legacy which the sages of yore have left behind them. It is truly a divine light that enables us to see within ourselves, to direct our gaze into the darkest corners of our own inner personality, and piercing through the veil of ignorance, to realise the Light of lights that we are in truth.
Brahma Vidya enable us to lead a better and more fruitful life here, a life of harmony, love, service, peace and joy.
That Brahma Vidya Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj has presented in the form of delightful Plays in this volume.
