The chief characteristic of the typical Indian Mystics of Medieval India was that they did not submit to the control of any sectarian, organization of scriptures, says the author. The freedom in the matter of spiritual culture was non-existant in medieval Europe gave Indian mystic experiences a richness and variety which is not available elsewhere. The author has constructed a true history of the religions and special efforts of Medieval India based on the materials enshrined in the sayings and doctrines of the Sadhus of the period and historical anecdotes about them.
