This book chronicles in lucid language the life of a great modern sage. Swami Chinmayananda’s life was indeed a saga of extraordinary spiritual strength, love, tireless service and metaphysical reach.When he began his mission, the world’s oldest scriptures were taught only in exclusive pockets, shrouded in orthodoxy. Swami Chinmayananda interpreted and opened up this perennial philosophy for millions of people. His was a life which in less than 50 years, left legacy of a global organisation, hundreds of institutions and millions of followers devoted to a single aim, the perpetuity of the nobility in Man.
