Unearthing Secrets of Upanishads
Description

About the Author

Dr. Mallikarjun Bykadi has been working as a Sanskrit lecturer in St. Joseph’s P.U. College, Bengaluru. He was conferred Ph.D degree from Rashtriya Sanskrita Sansthan, New Delhi on his thesis called ‘Dasopanishadsu Katha Samvada Vimarshah’ (Criticism on the stories and conversations of Ten Upanishads). He was also awarded a gold medal on his post graduation, for his outstanding performance in pantheism. (Advaita Vedanta)

 

Preface

Vedas are the ocean of knowledge where human's long term endeavour for fundamental truths of being is cogently expatiated. Vedas have four divisions called Samhita, Brahmana, Aranyaka and Upanishad. Upanishad is the last part of Veda where naive depiction of Brahma (Almighty) is illustrated. There are more than two hundred Upanishads which enunciate the qualities of Omnipotent. Apart from this, Upanishads hymns revolve around some social issues which need to be unmasked. This is what intended here and partially succeeded too.

Upanishad enthralled enormous people in the world through its pantheism. The concept pantheism was visualised by sages and popularised by great saint Shankaracharya. There are ten popular Upanishads which have the commentaries of Shankaracharya. Though the Upanishads quintessence is Brahma, but there are some stories which moralise and help the human to reach the Eternal bliss. These morals of Upanishads are unfurled in many treatises but few topics like sex, science, child—marriage etc are hardly unfolded.

Hence in this book such untold topics of Upanishads are subjected to be expatiated. The topics in this book have a stupendous explanation but lest topics bore the readers, condensed forms are given.

If book ignites the people to bethink broadmindedly then the intention is fulfilled. Heartfelt thanks to Mrs. Vanita, English lecturer of St. Joseph’s P.U. College who toiled for the completion of work.

 

Foreword

Unearthing the secrets of Upanishads is a path breaking work of history, cultural, social and moral analysis of both Vedic and modern times. A clearly written and forcefully argued work of the author very relevant to any one who values humanity. This collection brings together the truth of the Vedic times and modern times as a blend of myth, mystical insights and unique Indian realistic tradition juxtaposed with religion.

Outstanding stories from Upanishads have been translated carefully from Sanskrit without maligning the essence. The stories hold the readers in thrall with some mystery and realism.

Written in simple language with an intention to reach the mass, the book is a real entertainer as well as a though provoking tool.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
