Truth is simple. Simple are the words of God-realized saint. How simply our Gurudev, Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaja states the subtlest of spiritual truths so that even laymen can understand! The Sage’s compassion is such that he wants the truths of the scriptures to be made available to all to whatever intellectual level they may belong. Therefore he has literally exhausted all the methods of stating the truth. He has written commentaries on ancient texts; he has presented learned theses on metaphysical questions; he has narrated them in the form of interesting stories he has given laconic expression to them in aphorisms he has vividly dramatized them in his plays he has sung them in songs and woven them into sublime poems; and now comes another potent spiritual; the parable. The story is interesting the mind readily grasps it. The spiritual truth which is the other side of the story automatically gets inerasably lodged in the mind. The truth becomes not only but indelible.
These Parables are of incalculable benefit not only for the Sadhaka to meditate upon but for the spiritual propagandist with the parables he can drive his sermon home into the heart of the audience.
