The many-faceted personality of Swami Sivananda is depicted through examples and stories as told by his close disciples, as well as from his letters and official accounts in The Divine Life magazine. They relate the story of a very great human being in a most effective manner. All the complexities of a sage of infinite wisdom, infinite compassion and infinite love are explored. His unparalleled selfless service of humanity--first as a medical doctor and later as a realised sage--provides a living example of strength, humility and devotion. His dedication to the welfare of not only his own disciples but mankind at large, is described in this volume.
