The author, an erudite scholar monk of the Ramakrishna Order, was formerly an editor of Prabuddha Bharata, the principal monthly journal of the Order. This book is, for the most part, a compilation of editorials written for Prabuddha Bharata from 1979 to 1986. A few articles contributed to other journals have also been included. There has been an effort to maintain all through the book a sequential order of ideas but some repetition has been unavoidable since this is a compilation of articles written at different times. The book is primarily meant to guide and give inner strength to the younger generation through noble and inspiring ideas based on Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda's teachings.
