The Flame and the Flute, as the title implies, is a mystic novel in the sense that its central inspiration is spiritual. Its fire is kindled through a tussle between the flaming maya of life on one side and the haunting Flute-call to the soul on the other.

He is tom between his vital being's hunger for Shakuntala, a bayadere's beautiful and idealistic daughter, and his psychic being's thirst for the last asylum at the Guru's feet, away from that Valley of False Glimmer, Life. The Guru, too, is kept, by and large, outside the ambit of the intense drama till the very end - how and why, need hardly be anticipated. So, I will only add that this mystic intervention to cut the hridayagranti - the Gordian knot of the heart - has been the thrilling experience of hundreds of spiritual aspirants in India.
