The Yoga of the Saints: Analysis of spiritual life

V.H. Date (Author)
Synopsis This volume contains the life-long spiritual experience of the author. In his view the discovery of God has been made till now by saints and prophets all over the world, and their experiences recorded in the scriptures. But the truth of them all has to be tested by our own rediscovery of the presence of the Divine in us as well as in others and in the Nature outside. Till this is not done by oneself with an initial but provisional faith in another person who has realised God, till one has not felt a vacuum in life which can never be filled by anything else except God, till, in other words, one has not felt the painful hunger for God, all talk about the divine presence and of the consequent joy and peace, is nothing but moonshine. There are no short cuts to the royal throne of God. Therefore, ye who wish not to be duped by falsehood, illusion, hallucinations and delusion, nor by anything occult, hypnotic and magical, nor again wish to come under the woeful influence of drugs or of the pretenders and rogues in the garb of Sadhus and the recluse, nor wish to be carried away by poetic imagination, sexual imagery and fantastic notions about the future arrival of incarnations of God amongst us, and a hundred and one such barren and superstitious ideas, listen to us then with a faith to inquire and with a will to practise, so that you will have in course of time, as the late Professor R.D. Ranade, used to propound, a direct, concrete and immediate contact with Reality.

Vishnu Hari Date is a familiar name in the modern philosophical world. He came into prominence with the publication of his Vedanta Explained, 2 vols., and the Yoga of the Saints, which elicited the eloquent commendation from the eminent philosopher-saint, Prof. R.D. Ranade that, "it is a work which will command our respect, and that it is the outcome of his own deep conviction and personal experience". Dr. Date began his career as early as 1932 as Professor of Philosophy in the Colleges at Belgaum and Kolhapur. Subsequently he came over to Rajas-than in 1947 and was associated with Universities of Jodhpur and Jaipur.
