The human being is not what he seems to be. He is not one person but five-fold, one covering another. The outermost person has to journey within to his inmost. Self and return to the surface a new being altogether, according to the Taittiriya Upanishad.
The high importance of this classical Upanishad as exclusively treating, among other things, of the five kosas (sheaths of the Self) cannot be over-emphasised. As the doctrine of the Kosas is pivotal to Vedanta on its theoretical as well as its practical side, student of the Vedanta should be thoroughly familiar with it before proceeding further in their studies. The present work fulfils the need in ample measure.
The work now presented to the public contains the orignnal Sanskrit text of the Upanishad in Devanagari with a literal translation into English both of the text and of the three commentaries the Bhashya of Sankaracharya, the Vartika of Suresvaracharya and the Bhashya of Vidyaranya. A few notes have been extracted from Anandagiri's glosses on the Bhashya and on the Vartika; also from Vanamala, Achyuta Krishnananda Swamin's gloss on the Bhashya. The translator has added some notes of his own where they seemed most necessary.
This volume brings together three books: Vidyaranya's masterly Introduction to the study of the Upanishads, The Taittiriya Upanishad, with the three commentaries and The Atharvana Upanishads: Amritabindu, Kaivalya all the three translated by Sri Aalladi Mahadeva Sastry the well-known translator of Sankaracharya's Gita Bhashya.
