We live in an era where the rational explanations of science have made people question religion. When the priests and padres of the time could not give clear answers, they dismissed all religion as fanciful hocus-pocus. It takes a rare teacher of vast intellectual erudition and deep inner experience to give a full, clear and convincing explanation of what religion truly teaches.
Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda did exactly that through his lectures and jnana yajnas. Rejecting all blind faith and superstition, Gurudev took a strictly scientific approach to spirituality, explaining every statement of the scriptures in the light of logic and reason. Through such analysis, he brought out the deepest essence of Vedanta in practical, easy-to-understand, contemporary language.
This book was born out of a set of introductory talks given by Gurudev during his 1991 Gita Marathon Camp at Krishnalaya in Piercy, California. The audio and video recordings have been very popular among Chinmaya Mission members. We are now delighted to present The Logic of Spirituality in book form.
We want to thank Bradley Bradman, Nalini Browning, Coffin, Rudite Emir, Swami Siddhananda and Swami Ishwarananda for their hard work in bringing out this book.
Back of the Book
Shattering the general perception that spirituality is based on vague superstitions and blind faith, Pujya Gurudev guides us on a clearly thought-out enquiry into the essential Reality behind the universe. He answers questions such as “Why God? What is God? If He exists, where is He? What is my relationship with God and with the world?” With irrefutable logic, careful reasoning and colourful examples, Gurudev proves the presence of a higher Truth, which resides in our own hearts.
