It is with a mixed feeling of joy and sorrow that the publisher venture to offer to the reading public in this neat little volume seven of the unpublished lectures of Swami Abhedananda delivered in America; joy, because of its long looked-for emergence from the press, and sorrow on account of the passing away of the Swamiji maharaj to whom it can no longer be presented.

Be that as it may, the publishers have one solace at least and that is, they claim to have placed before the seekers after Truth the impassioned utterances which, instead of mystifying the Truth as it being done now-a-days in the name of hazy bizarre mysticism, open new vistas of thought and hold up before our mind’s eye the evershining true ideal as envisaged by a Child of Ramakrishna.

Intellectual apprehension of the Reality in its fullness is impossible unless the Truth is revealed in our loftiest intuitive experience and that is the key-note of the philosophy delineated in these pages. But though intuition has been placed on a higher level than reason, reason is neither annulled nor contradicted. For intuition transcends reason and in the act of transcending fulfils it and completes it. Truth is supra-logical and its intuitive apprehension does not mean going against the fundamental principles of thought or the canons of logic. Intellect has its place in any systematic presentation of views philosophical. And in these lectures the profound thinker marshals his arguments and presses his conclusion to a logical end without disparaging reason upon which rests the massive structure of any thoughtful production and exhorts his readers following his line of argument not to remain contented with a placid sort of belief in the creeds of their faith.

May these inspiring lectures, coming as they do from the lips of a Man of Realization, help the true and sincere seeker after Truth in unlocking that door which prevents the onrush of knowledge and may the glory of Truth be felt by us all.
