PREFACE

Perhaps, India has shown to the whole world through him that it alone could produce such illustrious godmen, whose ideals and achievements would mould mankind into a shape that is at once adorable. Hence he lives as a marshal-monk-monarch unsurpassed even after the great 'Pralaya'.

As a natural consequence of this, legends and fables in verse and prose, grew around him so cooperatively and abundantly that they hardly allow any one to have a correct picture of his rich personality. So, it is left to the hard labours of research scholars to dive deep into the ocean that his life is, to cull sparkling gems to adorn him and make a fresh assessment of his worth. As the scholars probe into his life, they are bewildered at the astounding potentialities of this noble son of our sacred Ind.

No wonder they grow eloquent and forget the power of the words they employ. Some seem discontented at the inadequacy of the language itself to clothe him fittingly, and properly.
