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.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
