The Call of the Upanishads (An Old and Rare Book)
The Call of the Upanishads (An Old and Rare Book)
Description
From the Jacket :

The Upanishads contain a large number of inspiring and instructive passages and verses - it has not been possible to include all of them in this book. For the purposes of this book the author has taken those verses and passages that have a bearing on the mystical teaching of the Upanishads. It is mysticism which is the very core of the Upanishads - and so in understanding this mysticism one comes to the heart of the sublime and magnificent teaching of the Upanishads.

Modern man needs today a meaningful philosophy if the achievements of science are not to lead him to greater and greater destruction - but to sublime and majestic heights of creative living. It is in the Vision of Life given by the Upanishads that man can find the fundamental philosophy that can lead him from the unreal to the Real, from darkness to Light, from death to Immortality.

About the Author:

Rohit Mehta was born in 1908 and was educated at Bombay, Surat and Ahmedabad. He was jailed five times by the British Government for anti-Government activities. Mehta was a founder of the Congress Socialist group in 1934, which later on became the Socialist Party of India. But while he accepted the economics of socialism, he was deeply dissatisfied with the philosophy of socialism. This led him to become an active worker in the Theosophical Society. He became an International Secretary of the Society when Dr. G.S. Arundale was the President. He became the General Secretary of the Society for India, and functioned as such for 16 years.

Late Shri Mehta was also a member of the U.P. Universities Commission. He traveled widely in almost all parts of the world as a lecturer speaking on Religion, Philosophy, Yoga, Psychology, Education, etc.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
