I shall be failing in my responsibility if I do not acknowledge the untiring efforts of Swami Srikantananda, Director of the Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence, who9 has whole-heartedly and efficiently worded for this volume from the conception of the museum stage till the publication of this volume.
