The Yogasara Upanishad
The Yogasara Upanishad
Description
Preface

Sri Sri: You may ask some questions! What do you want to listen to today? Hmm?

[A man in the audience says, "The Upanishad!"]

Sri Sri: Upanishad ... This is Upanishad!

"Upanishad" is sitting close - sitting close to the Master, not just physically, but also mentally ... and we're all sitting very close, physically and mentally!

Now, what does "sitting close" or "mentally" sitting close to the Master mean?

It means understanding, right; understanding the words of the Master.

Some things cannot be fully expressed in words; only an indication can be made. The deeper the subject, the lesser, words suffice. Whatever you can describe is gross. If you can describe something totally, it is very gross! The subtler you go, the more difficult it becomes to express, the more difficult, to describe. Do you see what I'm saying?

You can experience pain, but it's difficult to describe that pain totally. You can experience an emotion, but it's impossible to describe it totally, let alone make someone else experience it. So you experience love, but you cannot describe or express it, totally. This is why lovers are always sort of restless! They want to express, but they cannot find the words to express! They cannot find a single expression, capable of totally expressing what theyfeel! But, sitting close to the Master (that is Upanishad), you catch many things ... You catch the inexpressible ... You catch something that is indescribable.

Here, words are simply a vehicle; a lot more flows in-between the words - energy moves ... Grace moves ... joy moves ... and that transforms life.

There is an innate tendency to unite ... because love is to unite.

So what does "love" mean?

It is the tendency to unite, to become one .

To become one with what? What is this tendency to unite?

In this entire creation, there is a tendency to become "one", to set back to "one" ... because "two" is painful. Going, from two, o to one, is the purpose of creation. Everything wants to merge into something ... And what is this?

We call this love. The iishis call it "Yoga". So "yoga" means union, uniting ... and uniting what?

That is what we will see in this Yogasara Upanishad

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!

My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
