Prasna Upanisad (with the original text in Sanskrit and Roman transliteration)
Prasna Upanisad (with the original text in Sanskrit and Roman transliteration)
Description
From the Back of the Book:

In Upanisads is articulated not only the quintessence of spiritual wisdom, but also the remarkable philosophical genius of the classical Hindu mind. Owning, however, to their complexity, metaphor, and even obscurity, Upanisadic writings have been endlessly debated, discussed and written upon, more specially since Sankara's time. Swami Narayana Prasad's commentary is yet another valuable addition to the existing literature attempting, as it does, to rationally unlock the metaphysical subtleties of Prasna Upanishad - with the master-key handed down to him in the disciplic succession of Sri Narayana Guru.

Prasna Upanishad offers an enlightened exposition of brahmavidya: knowledge of the Absolute/Supreme Reality. In an aptly thought-out dialectical situation, it offers a threadbare discussion of six questions which, centreing around procreation/origin of beings, prana: the most vital life-sustaining principle, functional state of self (purusa), significance of meditating on AMU - lead to the finally of Vedantic wisdom: the sublimity of non-dual Reality: the param purusa of sixteen kalas.

With the English version of the Upanisad, its original Sanskrit text and Roman transliteration, Swami Prasad's interpretation highlights the true import of this metaphysical piece - spelling out its contexts in the light of what the author calls "the metalogic of yogic-buddhi" and all else that is allegorical, obscure and riddle-like. For the authenticity of this commentary, the authors has had extensive discussions with a group of Vedantic Swcholars.

A stimulating work for the scholars of Indian philosophy, specially Vedanta, and no less for discerning readers.
