Greatness evokes the admiration of mankind. The capacity to appreciate eternal values expressed in terms of human personality is the characteristic of all chastened minds.

In this book Profiles in Greatness, Swami Sastrananda has given us vivid character sketches of impressive human personalities, many of them historical and some mythological, who have moved the Indian mind to lofty thought and action. Elaborate biographies of great men often hide the central principle activating such personalities, amidst a plethora of facts and descriptions. The profiles of such men depicted here are without this defect. They take us directly to the dominant note of their lives that has made them significant to mankind.
