Self-Expansion Through Marriage

A Way to Inner Happiness
by Swami Kriyananda

This was the book for which I had to edit the introduction at the time of my heart surgery. The book answered a great need: Far too many people equate personal fulfillment with self-gratification. In truth, however, fulfillment is virtually synonymous with something very different: self-expansion. I wrote the book in hopes of getting people to see marriage as a path, ultimately, to God. Marriage as a way of expanding one's sympathies from the ego to one other person, then to a family, and then from every self-narrowing definition to embrace all humanity as one's own in God: Such is the basic theme of this book.
