About the Book :
The purpose of the present study is to present Swami Narayanananda as a prototype of a modern successful guru, who in his twilight language seems to be offering a definite kind of synthesis of all religions. Narayanananda, however, cannot be studied in isolation. He has to be studied in concreto within the movement of guruism. This single guru can be seen as a focus for the general movement of New Age which has taken the whole world by surprise. There is much more to be said, not least about the parallel movements within and out of Buddhism, which has its own esoteric and occult experiences.
