PUBLISHERS’ NOTE
This book offers, between the covers of one volume, the varied writings of H.H. Sri SwamiSivanandaji Maharaj on the subject of Satsanga or holy company and the related topic of Svadhyaya or daily study of sacred literature.The second part of the book throws more light on the subject. Therein Swami ChidanandajiMaharaj analyses in detail the subtle connection and the subtle distinction between the company of a holy man and the company of the Guru and points out clearly the circumstances under whichSatsanga can prove most fruitful for the Sadhaka.Itisaslightlyabstractsubject,butonewhichisvitalforallspiritualseekers.Itisoursincerehope that the pages that follow will open up a glorious new chapter in the lives of many.
