'The truth hidden behind the symbols are so magnificent and of such deep import that devotion should become strengthened and not weakened on understanding the inner significance of the symbols', says Dr. I. K. Taimni in his beautiful introduction to the book. Divided into nine chapters, this book helps to attain 'some insight into popular literature like the Purânas', that embody as an integral part of it the highest wisdom though in a veiled form.
