Everyone has to find the answer to the riddles of life himself and herself. Upanishads are some of the very useful aids to facilitate that journey.

This version is SO well done. It gives me all I wanted, excellent translations, and a practical application for this knowledge. The author's English is familiar and understandable. And in the process I learned the author's personal history was available in more detail in another of his books - which I promptly ordered and love equally as much.
I love God and people around me to feel liberated instead of going away and be happy with samadhi only.
In childhood at my 17/18 year age some one visited twice at my house at Mulund to give me gran of kriya yog but I did not contact him because he was monk. Now I am happy because I knew his name and I can learn from him. I am 61. email@example.com
I love this treatise, if may call it. I have been ardently following writings of M from His experienes with Himalayan Masters where the author gives the inexplicable incidents prompting him to initially peep into the inner world of quest for realisation of the self, the constant guidance of guru babaji, the explicit matter of assessment of those garbed in saintly attire not reaching any where, how ,sans religion, the object of a human incarnation is the crux of our lives and his writings which I frequently download in kindle coupled with that of the illustrious souls like Paramahamsa yogananda, Ram Thirth, the scientific analysis of philosophical thoughts byWill Durant, the Aphorisms of Patanjali Yoga Sastra, of which my review was carried in Amazon long ago etc, constitiute a fairly good compendium on what to know and what to discard in the journey to our destination.
I am writing this from Phoenix where I am on holiday from my busy profession of an attorney in India
"Brahman, the object of all desire, is the most precious of all. External objects look like something today and something else tomorrow. They will die and disappear, but the human life constantly continues with this desire - call it affection, love, attraction or lust. In fact, when someone says, `I love you,' actually it is not `you' but the `Self ' within!"
