Description

In his, preface to this great study in symbolic yoga, Dr. G. S. Arundale says that that " I am very conscious of the fact that its only value lies in the extent to which it is able to suggest to the adventurous thinker and student of life heretofore uncharted fields for fruitful exploration. The book consists of notes taken at the time of his own personal exploration in the field of symbology, 'explorations which were fortunate enough to have the guidance of One whose discoveries in innumerable fields have constituted Him a Master of the Wisdom of Life.
