The themes covered in this book are as varied as they are significant—ranging from religious experience and practical spirituality to the razor's edge and the Vedanta in everyday life. There are also a number of essays on the holy trinity: Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda.
True religion is not talk, or doctrines, or theories, nor is it sectarianism. It is the relation between soul and God. Religion does not consist in erecting temples, or building churches, or attending public worship. It is not to be found in books, or in words, or in lectures, or in organizations. Religion consists in realization. We must realize God, feel God, see God, talk to God. That is religion.
