Treasury is a collection of the spiritual terms found in the literature of the world's religious and mystical traditions. Its primary objective is to elucidate the meaning of the essential terms used by the various spiritual and religious traditions of the world throughout history. It is not primarily intended as a dictionary or as an encyclopedia, nor is it a definitive treatise on any particular subject or religion. It is meant to help the ordinary person understand some of the basic principles of his or her religious background, within the framework of a universal understanding of spirituality.

All terms are explained in a simple manner, with each term presented as a separate entry. With the explanations grouped according to subject and placed alongside one another, many similarities between the various religions immediately become apparent. Among these many pages, the reader will find a mixture of interesting concepts, quotations, thoughts, perceptions and ideas. There should be something for everyone, whoever they are and whatever their bent of mind.

The Treasury is prepared and edited by an international team of researchers, contributors, editors and readers with a wide variety of religious and cultural backgrounds. All those involved gave their time and expertise freely to the project. Since the Society does not seek any profit and the cost of printing in India is low, the Treasury can be sold at a very low price. This helps the Society stay true to its premise that spirituality is the birthright of all, that no profit should be extracted from its dissemination, and most important that knowledge of these truths should not be withheld from anyone for economic reasons.
