Publisher's Note

Spirituality! The term though widely used is little understood. Yet the struggle towards bringing this sublimity of soul into life continues. Every sincere aspirant tries to make some effort in this direction for it is spirituality which alone can provide stability, peace and joy in life. Despite all hindrances and challenges, spirituality continues to grow and a greater number of people evince interest in liking life that is spiritual. After all, how could one live a true life without spirituality which is based on virtues of goodness, faith, truthfulness, purity of conduct, unselfishness and service to fellow human beings!

This volume on spirituality is the book form of the Centenary Issue of The Vedanta Kesari, the English monthly brought out from this Math, published in December 2014. The whole gamut of spirituality has been examined and discussed from various angles by monastic and lay writers or repute. We are sure the readers will find in this handy publication a source of information, inspiration and fulfillment.
