PUBLISHER’S NOTE
Dear Friends,We are happy to share with you, in the original format, the completetext of Swami Yatiswarananda’s READINGS ON SWAMI BRAHMAN- ANDA’S SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS, as delivered from November 21st,1933 through January 7th, 1934, at Wiesbaden, Germany, to an intimategroup of European students he had begun intensively training.These READINGS in English—the first of a series, copies of whichwere preserved by Vedanta devotees in Germany, have never been pub-lished in their entirety. Apart from a few extracts which appeared in
VEDANTA FOR EAST & WEST 
(Bourne End’s magazine), only READ-INGS 1 through 17 (out of 48) were appended in French to Jean Herbert’stranslation of the original
SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS OF SWAMI BRAHM- ANANDA
1
— first published in 1949 by Editions Derain, Lyons, France,under the title of:
‘Swami Brahmananda: DISCIPLINE MONASTIQUE’ 
.We are grateful to Kurt Friedrichs of Hamburg, a disciple of the Swami,for sharing his copy of these READINGS with us.Vedanta students, of course, already know of 
MEDITATION ANDSPIRITUAL LIFE 
, the extensive selection of Swami Yatiswarananda’swritings and talks. The present READINGS, naturally, duplicate the ideasand some sections in the aforementioned book. However, repetition iswelcome to the earnest seeker, and it will be especially interesting for Eu-ropeans to identify with the actual format of how Vedanta was pioneeredin the Europe of 60 years ago!Romain Rolland mentions Swami Yatiswarananda in his diary under date of May 1st, 1935, when the Swami visited Rolland in Switzerland to-gether with Paul Geheeb. The Swami had already been moving — sinceNovember 1933 mainly in Germany and Switzerland [Wiesbaden,Geneva, Lausanne, Zurich, Campfer, St.Moritz, etc.], and occasionallyalso to London and the Hague. He also visited France several times be-tween 1933 and 1938, and represented the Order at the 1936 Rama-krishna Centenary celebrations at the Sorbonne, in Paris. Jean Herbert, inhis preface to
DISCIPLINE MONASTIQUE 
, says the Swami often usedthe
SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS OF SWAMI BRAHMANANDA
as a basis for his talks to European Vedanta groups.It is indeed a great good fortune that the Swami had the foresight to editand give a permanent form to these READINGS, so that they can be con-sulted by us today. We are sure you will find them both inspiring, and chal-lenging...The ADDENDUM addresses the disciple-Guru relationship.
