To celebrate himself is the credo of man today, his article of faith as it were. He would not submit to Mother Nature, he would rather make her and her creation obey him, creation the inert no less than creation the living. This creature of the Universe would be its Sole Master, if Not its Maker. Humanity in the pre-scientific age would master Nature with its prayers and good karmas, its good actions. Humanity of today would master the Universe with its knowledge and power. The two dispositions are the same in respect of being ego-centric, rather man-centric. They forget that Man is not a mere adhyatmika (human) being, he is also an adhibhautika (cosmic) and an adhidaivika (divine) being, the latter two being the constituitive others of the former as the former is of the latter two. And, what is more, there is also an urge in himto transcend these cosmotheandric dimensions of his being. As man's being is cosmotheandric, so is his pain, his suffering and his tragedy. That tragedy will not end unless and until this cosmotheandric being comes to its end, unless and until this seeming beauty, this freedom and this ecstasy comes to be extinct, this is our fall the ultimate. As for our obsession with humanism, it will bring us only ruin and destruction. The Subject of this biography (1903-1954) gave this prophetic message long ago. Are we in a position to pay heed to his call or have we, in our arrogance, already lost the opportune moment? Has our beastly oblivion already lost the opportune moment? Has our beastly oblivion already decided our fate? A direct disciple of the Master
