About the Author

One of the greatest masters of the 20th century, Swami Rama is the founder of the Himalayan Institute. Born in the Himalayas, he studied in both India and Europe, and received his spiritual training in the Himalayan cave monasteries and in Tibet. His best known work, Living with the Himalayan masters, reveals the many facets of this singular adept and demonstrates his embodiment of the living Himalayan Tradition.

Preface

This book has come into existence with the original idea of writing an extensive commentary on Gaudapada- carya's work, called Mandukya Karika, which is highly philosophical, and more advanced psychologically and philosophically than the Western approaches. Very few people know this great scholar and sage in the West. His work is actually a synthesis of the Hindu way of sadhana and the Buddhist way of sadhana. His independent and highly provocative commentary is worth studying.

Swami Rama comes from the heritage of the great sage and scholar, Shankara, the architect of the Advaita- nondual system. In this first volume, only the original Upanishad comprising twelve verses has been explained by him from an experiential standpoint. The second volume, which is in preparation, makes a detailed commentary on the Karika. This first volume will be useful for psy- chologists, therapists, and philosophers, and especially to those aspirants who are aspiring to realize the Ultimate Truth.

Pandit Rajmani Tigunait has assisted Swamiji through- out in writing this book. Dr. Susan Thornburg and Dr. Arpita have devoted long hours in taking down dictation, editing, and making it available for final printing. The final script was reviewed by Dr. Phil Nuernberger and Dr. John Harvey. Barb Bova, a medical student, typed and retyped the original manuscript. Compliments are due to Patrice Hafford for typesetting, Mr. Charles Blanchard for print- ing, and Randy Padorr-Black for art and design.

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.
