This book is dedicated - indeed, one may say it dedicates itself - to Swami Prab havananda, head of the Vedanta Society of Southern California, my guru, dear fri end and literary collaborator for the past twenty-five years. It was he who aske d me to write it, and who has helped me with his advice and encouragement throug hout the writing. I owe great gratitude to Swami Madhavananda, head of the Ramakrishna Order, who read the manuscript chapter by chapter as it was sent to him at the Belur Math i n Bengal, and supplied me with most valuable corrections, added information and comments.

His parents were Khudiram Chattopadhyay and Chandramani Devi.

Должно быть, это какая-то ошибка. Следопыт показывал адрес, не имеющий никакого смысла. Взяв себя в руки, она перечитала сообщение.
