We are happy to present to the spiritual seekers this book which is chiefly an anthology of selected writings of H.H. Sri Swami Brahmanandaji Maharaj, a senior Mahatma of Sivananda Ashram, who attained Mahasamadhi on 12th September, 2002. This valuable collection contains certain important works of Parama Poojya Swamiji Maharaj, which were published on earlier occasions in the form of small booklets for free distribution as Jnana Prasad. It is with this intention of preserving these valuable treatises that the present volume is being published.
Revered Swamiji’s writings are endowed with the clarity of an acute scholar and the profundity of a practical saint combined in one. Students of Vedanta will find this collection as a vademecum for constant recollection of the Vedantic verities.
May the choicest blessings of the Lord and the Brahma-vidya Gurus be upon all.
1st September 2003.

Yasmin yato yarhi yena ca yasya yasmaat yasmai yatha yaduta yastvaparh paro vaa,
Bhaavah karoti vikaroti pruthak svabhaavah sanchoditastadakhilam bhavatah svaroopam.
O Lord! Anyone who in any condition, for any reason, at anytime does anything or changes anything, whether it is good or bad, with whatever intentions good or evil, in whatever manner, unto anyone, through anyone, in relationship with anyone, influenced by anyone—all that is your own Self!
—Srimad Bhagavata Mahapuranam (VII-9-20)
*This prayer was found, in Swami Brahmananda’s handwriting, among his personal papers.
