This book contains twelve chapters on philosophy and religion, together with three Appendices.
The book deals with the problems and origin of pantheistic idea in the domain of philosophy. The Swami has proved that pantheistic and non-dualistic ideas are not one and the same. Vedanta has synthesized the ideas of all religions, creeds and faiths, and has shown a common path to reach the ultimate goal of man, which is called Divine realization or inspiration.
