PUBLISHERS’ NOTE
Truth is simple. Simple are the words of God-realised saint. How simply our Gurudev, SriSwami Sivanandaji Maharaj, states the subtlest of spiritual truths, so that even laymen canunderstand! The Sage’s compassion is such that he wants the truths of the scriptures to be madeavailabletoall,towhateverintellectualleveltheymaybelong.Therefore,hehasliterallyexhaustedall the methods of stating the truth. He has written commentaries on ancient texts; he has presentedlearnedthesesonmetaphysicalquestions;hehasnarratedthemintheformofinterestingstories;hehas given laconic expression to them in aphorisms; he has vividly dramatised them in his plays; hehas sung them in songs and woven them into sublime poems; and now comes another potentmethod of instruction—the Parable. The story is interesting; the mind readily grasps it. Thespiritual truth which is the other side of the story automatically gets inerasably lodged in the mind.The truth becomes not only clear, but indelible.TheseParablesareofincalculablebenefitnotonlyfortheSadhakatomeditateupon,butfothe spiritual propagandist—with the parables he can drive his sermon home into the heart of theaudience. —THE DIVINE LIFE SOCIETY
