Parables
Description
Preface

None of these stories that are attributed to me are really mine. These are Stories that the old Mahatmas had told us while we were learning the scriptures at Rishikesh and Uttarkasi.

This is an old method-an intelligent application of audio-visual method of education imparting Vedantic knowledge. The ideas expounded in Vedanta are extremely subjective and therefore supremely subtle. Chances of misunderstanding or vaguely understanding are more than that of true understanding or right comprehension. As a methodology in communication of scriptural knowledge, our ancient masters found that examples given from the gross outer world can perhaps correctly illumine the subtle inflections in the sensitive march of ideas in Vedanta.

Don't take these stories literally and apply them to the entire idea or concept each claims to illumine; no example or story can do this. The finite can never illustrate or totally bring into the vivid comprehension of the limited intellect the Supreme, the Infinite. Our equipments are limited; language cannot but stammer in its despairing limitation to express the beauty of all beauties. These parables can bring out in all brilliance the total light in each one of jewels of Vedanta. Those of you who read each one of them and give sufficient thought to its implication can be benefited greatly in gaining a clearer glimpse into the subtle imports that are intelligently suggested by the pregnant mantras of the Upanishads and the galloping stanzas of the Bhagavad Geeta.
