It is with very great pleasure that I introduce this book, for I believe that it deserves the thoughtful attention of the Indian and English public, and contains ideas and suggestions of the greatest value for all who are interested in the vexed questions of the day. Society, at the present time, is at a deadlock, unable to go forward into the future without finding solutions for the problems of our time, and yet impelled forward by the imperious law of evolution, which demands progress or sentences to death. It stands at the edge of a precipice, and sees no way to safety. Over the edge it must go - as previous civilisations have gone, carrying their treasures of refinement and culture with them - unless it can find some Ark of safety to carry it from the old to the new.
Such an Ark may be found in the Wisdom of our great Progenitor Manu, the Father of the whole Aryan Race.
