A glossary usually appended to a book on spiritual subject, has to be necessarily more than a dictionary, a thesaurus and a lexicon. The reader needs much more than limited direct meanings for those loaded-words, which are employed in the given book, so as to share those insights of the author. Derivative meanings with special connotations have to be opened up for the reader to enable him to empathically travel through the spiritual study material. In a glossary, etymological word-connections have to be further amplified, by contextual link with daily life. Such elaborations, if given in the main work itself, even as footnote, they interrupt the flow of the subject. Thus instead of providing clarification, they only crop up at best as distractions! This point in view, a conscious attempt is made here to provide truly a full-fledged GLOSSARY, deviating from the accepted convention!
