The second volume on Man, The Spiritual, under 'Trilogy', is an evaluation of the philosophy of Man in the context of the examination of 'Religion' as the basis of Indian culture and tradition. Swami Vivekananda uses the term religion for the natural analysis of internal and external aspects of man in a synthetic form, which, in His observation, develops the creative state of universality with the realization of highest value of 'Unity' as it is divine or spiritual in a transcendent-experiential form.

‘Spirituality', He observes, is not mere transcendentality, but it is the realization of transcendent value of unity in different experiential processes in different degrees. This is purely creative as in one hand it transcends different limitations or contradictions in human existence and is also an experiential process of realizing highest value in reconciling contradictions in unity..
