Written with extraordinary clarity and elegance, this book is an excellent exposition of the complex philosophy of Advaita. A special feature of the book is that it inspires the readers to inquire deeply into their own traditions and undertake the mystical quest. The author’s emphasis on first-hand truth is indeed heartening, for, as he says quite rightly, ultimate questions are too important to be left for others to determine the answers. Professor Puligandla approaches Vedanta as a free and independent thinker with a desire to modernize its format and shows the key to search and reach the highest form of living truth by tracing the single theme of non-dualism.
