About the Author
Indira Devi
Born on 26th March, 1920, to wealth and luxury, in Punjab, Indira Devi was dogged form her

infancy, by a deep, unaccountable other worldliness like a devouring flame which increased

with her age, until she felt compelled to dedicate herself exclusively to spiritual life and

so accepted Sri Dilip Kumar Roy as her spiritual father. Soon after she got initiation from

her Guru she started gong into Bhav Samadhi' and a new vista of spiritual world was opened

before her eyes. Under the aegis of her Guru, Sri Roy, she developed into a remarkable poet in

a short span of time; besides composing beautiful English and Urdu devotional songs she began

to hear Bhajans from the legendary saint Meera Bai in her Samadhi. Sri Aurobindo authenticated

the experience of Smt. Indira Devi as genuine. A complete collection of her compositions are

published in two volumes titled "Indiranjali Vol 1 and Indiranjali Vol II". These established

her as one of the foremost composers of mystic poems in Hindi. She was also a classical

devotional dancer and accompanied Sri Roy during their world tour as cultural ambassadors in

1953. in the present volume Sri D.K.Roy and Smt. Indira Devi have appraised the place of

Sadhus in India's spiritual life with astonishing insight, lucidity and charm.
