The Prophet and His Mission
Author: Swami Sri Yukteswar

This souvenir was brought out on the occasion of the one hundred and fiftieth year of Swami Sri Yukteswarji’s Janmotsav (birth celebration). It is a humble tribute dedicated to the great Jnanavatar, a monarch in his own spiritual kingdom, beyond which, as he himself put it, is the vast world, interested only in the externals. Though this saint's undissembling speech prevented a large following during his years on earth, nevertheless, through an ever-growing number of sincere students of his teachings, his spirit lives on in the world today. Warriors like Alexander the Great, seek sovereignty over the soil; rishis like Sri Yukteswar win a farther dominion — in men’s souls.
