From the Jacket
This book, An Enquiry into Psychology, Soul and absolute by Swami Prajnanananda, is a brief but critical survey of the problem of Psychology, Soul and Absolute.
The soul or self is the prime-mover of the mind, its modifications and its functions, but the Absolute is above all of them. This book has thrown sufficient light upon those principles, mind, soul and Absolute, and has made their status and stands clear.
The book has further discussed about different schools of psychology and their findings, and has solved their problems with the help of arguments and rational views, as maintained and forwarded by Swami Abhedananda in his illuminating book, True Psychology.
This book has solved many mysteries of psychology and philosophy, and has come to the conclusion that the true knowledge of the Absolute is the only means to go beyond the mind and to cut asunder the knot of nescience that binds men head to foot in the trap of worldliness.
