the Bhavan has published this lecture in volume two of "Eternal Values for Changing Society Great Spiritual Teachers" by Swami Ranganathanandaji.
We are greatful to Swamiji for having given his consent to our request to bring out this booklet as part of its Eternal Values Booklets Series.
As Swamiji says, "that Gospel of Jesus is a Gospel of Spiritual redemption. That Gospel has a meaning only when we feel the bondage of worldliness irk-some and heavy and seek for freedom in the freedom of God. There is the assurance given by the Master that we shall then get what we seek. To ask and seek and knock is our share, and to give and reveal and open is the Lord's. That is the Hindu way of acceptance and assimilation."
