The Upanishads (Spiritual Awakening)
The Upanishads (Spiritual Awakening)
Description
Preface

Not only have the Upanishads fascinated the Indian mind through ages, but also evoked the admiration of scholars and philosophers of the West. Forming the concluding portion of the Vedas--the Vedanta--the Upanishads embody the accumulated wisdom of centuries. They are neither sectarian nor dogmatic. They are the result of free thinking and interaction encouraged among the seekers by the ancient rishis. Relevant and useful at all times, they preach the spiritual unity of mankind.

The highly profound and subtle truths of Vedantic teachings were lucidly brought out by Swami Paramarthananda in a series of talks he delivered in Chennai from October 2000 to December 2001, as part of his week-end classes on the subject. A disciple of Swami Dayananda Sarasvati, he has been spreading the message of Vedanta for more than 25 years and is renowned as a systematic and committed teacher of the sampradya (tradition) of Adi Sankaracharya.

This volume is a compilation of the edited extracts from the lectures, by Sri R. B. Athreya, a student of the Swamiji, and published as a series of articles in the Tattvâioka monthly issues from April 2002 to April 2005. The talks started with an introduction to the Vedanta, followed by a summary of each of the principal Upanishads.

Sri Athreya, after serving for over 25 years in banks in India and the Middle East now devotes all his time to spiritual pursuits. He and his wife are ardent Srividya Upasakas, initiated by Brahmasri Anna Subramaniam, well-known publisher of many of Sri Ramakrishna Mutt publications.

This volume, it is hoped, will be a refresher course for students of Vedanta and those desiring to get initiated into Vedantic study.
