Hindu scriptures, the contributions of sages who visualized the ultimate principles through their intuitive power, successfully unfold the science of divine propriety as a way out of the baneful influences of materialism. The author of this book represents those who attach more importance to the divine fiber in mankind than the outward phenomenon of prosperity. This bold exposition of the truth might raise reactions in modern Indologists in India and abroad, but at the same time compels the reader to see that the modern world at present is suffering from prosperity and not from poverty. But then all this cannot be challenged now because the author is no more in this world and his thoughts remain his last words on this subject.
