Prophets of all lands and ages have succeeded in their God-quest. Entering a state of true illumination, nirvikalpa samadhi, these saints have realized the Supreme Reality behind all names and forms. Their wisdom and spiritual counsel have become the scriptures of the world. These, although outwardly differing by reason of the variegated cloaks of words, are all expressions sme open and clear, others hidden or symbolic of the same basic truths of Spirit.
My Gurudeva, Jnanavatar (Incarnation of wisdom ; from Sanskrit jnana, wisdom and avatara, divine incarnation) Swami Sri Yukteswar (1885-1936) of Serampore, was eminently fitted to discern the underlying unity between the scriptures of Christianity and of Sanatan Dharma. Placing the holy texts o the spotless table of his mind, he was able to dissect them with the scalpel of intuitive reasoning, and to separate interpolations and wrong interpretations of scholars from the truths as originally given by the prophets.
It is owning to Jnanavatar Swami Sri Yukteswar's unerring spiritual insight that is now becomes possible, through this book, to establish a fundemental harmony between the difficult biblical book, Revelation, and the Sankhya philosophy of India.
