Description

Publisher's Note

'Upanishads are a mine of strength', said Swami Vivekananda. But a mine has to be excavated in order to obtain its treasures and profit from it. That the Upanishads have a timeless treasure of wisdom and practical guidelines waiting to become a part of daily life became clear when The Vedanta Kesari (the English monthly of Ramakrishna Order published from this Math) brought out a special issue in December 2007 on this subject. The issue received a hearty welcome by all those who read it. 'Oh, this is what the Upanishads are calling upon us to do!' responded one of the readers. Numerous other communications, in various forms, followed – expressing happiness and appreciation of the whole approach to this serious theme.

We are happy to present that special issue in the form of this book with the same title with which it was brought out – The Upanishads in Daily Life.

Back of the Book

'These conceptions of the Vedanta must come out, must remain not only in the forest, not only in the cave, but they must come out to work at the bar and the bench, in the pulpit, and in the cottage of the poor man, with the fisherman that are catching fish, and with the students that are studying…. How can the fisherman and all these carry out the ideals of the Upanishads? The way has been shown….If the fisherman thinks that he is the Spirit, he will be a better fisherman; if the student thinks he is the Spirit, he will be a better student. If the lawyer thinks that he is the Spirit, he will be a better lawyer, and so on…'
