Description
Publishers Note
Second Edition

This is the substance of the series of lectures delivered by Sri Swamiji at Mysore during Sankara-Jayanti Saptaha (from 17-5-72 to 23-5-72). It is expected to be complimentary to the lectures delivered by Swamiji at Bangalore during the same year. The first edition of the book which was published in 1947 was out of stock.

As there was an increasing demand for this enlightening work, of Swamiji, of revered memory, we have pleasure in bringing out this second edition.

 

Preface

There is very little to add to what I have written in the preface to the ‘Intuition of Reality’ already published by the Karyalaya.

The art of interpreting the Upanishads so as to convince the reader that there is really a unique method adopted in these holy rev elations, has been preserved by Gaudapada and Sankara, whose works are fortunately still available.

I hope that this small book contains in a nut-shell the most important principles involved in the method adopted by the Upanishads in presenting Reality and Truth.

The last lecture contains the most important innovations and revolutionary doctrines introduced by Post-Sankara-Advaitins in the guise of sub-commentaries. The reader who is interested in the subject, is referred to my Sanskrit work ‘The Vedanta-Prakriya-Pratyabhijna’ and the English Introduction to that publication.

 

Contents

 

I The Wisdom of the Upanishads 1-11

VI The Method of Superimposition and Rescission 44-54

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
