PASSAGE TO DIVINITY:
By Chandrasekhar B Trikannad, covering the pre-monastic life of Swami Ramdas and narrating the fast-moving sequence of events that led to the snapping of all his earthly ties and the emergence of God-intoxicated Ramdas.
It would be sheer euphemism to call this sketchy brochure a biography in any sense of the term; nor do I lay claim to any such high pretensions. However, I fondly trust that this humble work will prove to be a useful introduction to Swami Ramdas' great autobiographical works, In Quest of God and In the Vision of God. If it should create an interest, in such of the readers as had not the privilege of coming into Swamiji's blessed contact, to know more about him, his mission and his message to the world, I shall feel highly flattered and amply recompensed.
In this edition an entire new chapter has been incorporated, namely, "The Early Life", in Beloved Papa's own words. This had originally appeared in the Ashram monthly, The Vision, in seven serial instalments in 1965-66. It deals with "the events, circumstances, influences and environments that awakened, nourished and accelerated the spiritual light and aspiration and, later, the progress towards, and the attainment of, the supreme goal of Self-realisation".
