The collection of papers in this book published in India and abroad, bring up a synthesis of Sufi and Vedanti concepts and the ideas originating in Humanistic and Existential Psychology. The authors have demonstrated the heuristic power of these concepts giving a fresh orientation in psychological thought providing an academic base for National Integration. The authors have intended to bring up the Sufi and Vedantic tradition in their meaning for the conditions as they exist today. They believe that National integration has no base in the absence of these traditions that now call for their scientific interpretation. These papers are therefore an attempts to provide a scientifically oriented conceptual base for a meaningful approach to National integration which over loaded with political ideas.
