Medieval Mysticism of India (An Old Book)
Medieval Mysticism of India (An Old Book)
Description

From the Jacket

"The chief characteristic of the typical Indian Mystics of Medieval India was that they did not submit to the control of any sectarian, organization or scriptures", says the author. This freedom in the matter of spiritual culture was non-existent in medieval Europe gave Indian mystic experiences a richness and variety which is not available elsewhere. The author has constructed a true history of the religions and spiritual efforts of Medieval India based on the materials enshrined in the sayings and doctrines of the Sadhus of the period and historical anecdotes about them. 

About the Author

Kshitimohan Sen was an eminent scholar and a saint who contributed a lot in the development and growth of Visvabharati, Shantiniketan. Rabindranath Tagore and C.F. Andrews both regarded him as their esteemed colleague and friend. He dedicated his entire life in collection of materials pertaining to the lives of innumerable Sadhus and Sadhana.
