This is a set of essays by Sister Nivedita, published posthumously. Nivedita was a woman of Irish nationality who converted to Hinduism and spent her life selflessly helping the poor women of India. This book gives a rare ground-level vista of vernacular Hinduism from a woman's point of view in the 19th century. Pervading Nivedita's writing is an earnest quest for spiritual liberation and sincere love for the Indian people of all castes.
