Editor's preface to the first editionThe cosmic gods represent different aspects of the Absolute Supreme. On the one hand, they are inseparable from Him; on the other hand, they appear to our human ignorance as separate beings with unique identities and personalities. During their meditation, Yogis and advanced seekers can actually see these beings in the inner world. In this unusual book, an illumined Yogi who has a free access to the inner worlds writes from firsthand experience about some of the different cosmic gods and their various activities.
