This handy volume is a collection of a number of inspiring and illuminating articles from the pen of a learned and saintly writer, who does not feel inclined to disclose his identity and writes the pen-name of "Siva". The articles originally appeared every month in the popular and very widely read Hindi monthly, the 'Kalyan" under the caption "Kalyan" and were later on rendered into English by the Editors of the English monthly, the "Kalyana-Kalpataru" or the Bliss, and regularly published in it under the caption "Unto Bliss'. These articles have been highly appreciated by the readers of both the magazines and are read with avid interest every month. They speak for themselves and the readers. The homely and touching instructions contained in them have a wonderfully universal appeal and are absolutely free from sectarianism or dogmatic touch. They can be read with equal benefit by the followers of all religious creeds and, if followed with reverence, are sure to take them to lofty spiritual heights.
The articles have also appeared in a number of handy volumes in Hindi and we are reproducing below the worlds of the author himself introducing the very first volume to the reader: -
"The mind is an ocean of thought-waves. Many such thought-waves arise in the mind of "Siva" and some of them get recorded too. This small collection of the aforesaid thought-waves reduced to writing is being released. The faults of tautology and desultoriness may be noticed in this collection: for, after all, they are waves of the mind. It is no doubt true that there is a law operating behind the waves too and that they move in regular succession; but we are unable to perceive that order with our physical eyes. What we see are so many disorderly and irregular forms of the waves moving along with the blasts of the wind. It is possible those who view these waves with a critical eye may be able to "Siva", however, has no concern with this. At the instance of he publishers, "Siva" has only strung together passages strewn here and there and given a heading to them. "Siva" does not know whether this will or will not prove to be the source of any benefit or amusements to the readers.
As announced in the preface to the previous volume, which saw the light on the last Sri Krsna Janmastami under the title of "Fountain of Bliss", we feel pleasure in releasing this second volume of he series under the title of "path to divinity". I hope this will also be welcomed by English-reading public with the same enthusiasm with which they received the first volume.
