The Upanishads simplified
Reviewed in India on 11 August 2016
This book is wonderfully written. Extracted from Sri M's talks, it presents an explanation of three principal Upanishads in a manner that appeals to the scientific mind and even the non believer. Literal Sanskrit translations of these Upanishads are freely available. I like Eknath Easwaran's version. However, the explanation that Sri M offers is par excellence. Please tolerate the repetitions. They don't detract from the wisdom of the teachings. My heart was filled with emotions by the end of the book. And the best part, Sri M responds to any queries or comments that you mail him with. So any doubts that may linger are easily clarified. I recommend reading this book in conjunction with a chapter in another book by the same author on Hinduism. The chapter in that book is titled, 'Thus spoke the master' This book has the potential to change the life of a seeker. Strongly recommended. 5 stars all the way!
