Upanishads

Upanishads Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Upanishads lie at the wellspring of India's loftiest teachings. Vivid, inspired, and highly personal, they offer a privileged glimpse of the unitive vision, in which all things are one in a world aflame with God. No one can listen to these texts without coming away with a deepened sense of the real meaning of human life.

Synopsis:

To those who love the truth. 'The Upanishads are ancient treatises, written in Sanskrit, containing the theosophy of the Vedas. They are often referred to as rahasya, the 'mystery' or 'secret, ' as being formerly taught only to those who had gone through a special preliminary training and given proof of their fitness; they are also called shruti-shirah, or the 'head of revelation, ' as being the most precious revelation handed down to the Aryan inhabitants of India.
