Product description

Review

The Upanishads represent the high watermark not only of Hindu Philosophy but of spiritual literature anywhere in the world. These marvellous discourses and dialogues between self-realized seers, known as Rishis, and one or more disciples, contain powerful and eloquent statements regarding the ultimate reality in its multifarious facets. They have been well described as providing an 'ecstatic slide show of reality, a privileged glimpse of the unitive vision in which all thing are one in a world aflame with God'. They contain some of the most eloquent passages such as - 'I have seen that Great Being shining like a thousand suns beyond the darkness; it is only by knowing that being that we can achieve immortality' and again, 'Hear O children of immortal bliss, you are born to be united with the Divine; follow the path of the illumined ones and be united with the Supreme Being'. -- Dr. Karan Singh

About the Author

Sri M was born in Tiruvananthapuram, Kerala. At the age of nineteen and a half, attracted by a strange and irresistible urge to go to the Himalayas, he left home. At the Vyasa Cave, beyond the Himalayan shrine of Badrinath, he met his Master and lived with him for three and a half years, wandering freely, the length and breadth of the snow clad Himalayan region.

In this book the author has given detailed interpretation of three Upanishads.
He has explained what Upanishads are, how it has to be understood and what a person shall get from the Upanishads.
The author has given verse by verse translation and interpretation in very simple language, by giving examples and small stories.
The Isavasya upanishad, is part of Yajur veda. It proclaims the all pervasivenes of the totality of consciousness.
The Kena upanishad is part of Sama Veda. This upanishad concerns with a question of one's own identity.
The Mandukya upanishad is a part of Sama Veda. It explains about the fourth state of consciousness after waking, dreaming and deep sleep state.

Everyone seeking spiritual growth must read this book. It's an amazing book, the language is pretty simple and easy to understand. This is the 4th book by Sri M that I have read and I love the flow with which he writes the entire book, from the beginning till the end. For a common man Upanishads can be really difficult to understand but trust me Sri M explained every minute details very beautifully.
