Preface to the First Edition

Salutation to Madurai Meenakshi
Salutation to Prophets and Saints

I AM extremely glad to note that the Madurai Public has so well reacted to the 41 days' Upanishad Gnana Yagna, the fifth of its kind that I have been deputed to serve. The discourses that were heard at the Madurai Yagnasala during these 41 days (from 14 February to 26 march 1954) are being compiled here into one solid volume to serve two kinds of people; those who have not been able to attend the Yagna, and those who attended it. To the former this will be a complete textbook, and to the latter it will serve as notes helping to refresh their memory of what they heard while attending the Yagna.

I know that the Yagna Committee owes its thanks to thousands of people for their co-operation and divine enthusiasm, but for which the Yagna would not have been such an unprecedented success as it was in Madurai. But all the same, mainly the committee should remember of gratitude the Lord Himself who guides us in all our endeavours and doles out real success for all our consistent and persistent efforts.

I must congratulate especially the President of the Committee, Sri P.A.C. Ramaswamy Raja of Rajapalayam, for his diligent and faithful editing of this textbook. I feel confident that all the salient points that were discussed in the Yagnasala have been faithfully reported in these pages.

Good or bad, success or failure, complete or incomplete, I consider no work as mine and as such I feel no hesitation in placing this volume as a flower of love and homage at the feet of our reviving Hinduism.

Renascent Hinduism is rising. She has decided to work out her queenly vision of serving humanity all round the globe. The general enthusiasm with which the faithful are now flocking to the study of the Upanished in such continuous discussion groups clearly reveals that the Rishis have started their unseen work of guiding their exhausted children back to their philosophical wealth and spiritual nourishment. The earlier our readers complete their study of these scriptures and reinforce their intellectual knowledge with consistent and intelligent practice, the easier would be the work of our Eternal Mother, the Sruti. If you are not enrolling yourself in the army or Hindu missionaries as a member, you will soon be finding yourself a foreigner in your own native land.

Move with the times and know the timeless Time. My grateful and humble regards to all workers and sincere volunteers who have contributed their work to make the Yagna such a glorious success; especially, I owe my gratitude to Sri Gopalakrishna Pillai, the Secretary of the Committee, who had been a flawless sevak of Mother Sruti. My the blessings of the Rishis be upon you all. With Prem and Om.

Back of the Book

Prasna means a question. Prasnopanishad is a question and answer session where six genuine, advanced seekers approach a rishi called Pippalada. The seekers' questions could be yours and mine and the rishi's answers signify the scriptural voice gently guiding us through the tunnel of darkness to the light at the end.

If you have questions on creation, on life, its purpose and fulfillment, then just go for this text.

Gurudev's commentary, on this Upanisad, like on all other Upanisads gives insights to the seeker to understand the subtle language in a easy and clear manner. His master strokes are very evident in his lucid lectures on the Upanisad.

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
