Preface

This is the first of a series of small books under the head - "Satchidaananda Vaak-Jyoti" or “The Enlightening Words of Satchidaananda". All these book booklets contain a free transliteration of the enlightening and immortal words and teachings' of Shri Satchidaanandendra Swamiji, of revered memory. found in his numerous Kannada books. Those readers who do not have the facility and advantage of reading and understanding books in the Kannada language will be immensely benefited by these English publications written in simple language and style.

Having been profoundly influenced and having benefited immensely, I have mooted this small plan of publishing these 'gems of spiritual literature'. unrivalled in their esoteric import and teachings of the highest order and based on the pristine pure original Bhashyas of Adi Shankara. It is an irony of our times that even that great Acharya's immaculate teachings of Atmavidya or Self-Knowledge - purely based on the strength of the Upanishadic statements, culmination or consummation of all those teachings in one's own Intuitive experience here and now - have been distorted beyond recognition and redemption.

The devoted and discerning seeker of the Ultimate Reality of Atman or the Self, of the essential nature of Pure Being-Consciousness (Intuition), is sure to benefit a great deal by studying and cognizing the truths that are taught in these booklets, adopting a well-planned sequential order so as to enable him to get rid of many 8 deep-rooted misconception that was hitherto proving to be a stumbling block in his path of spiritual progress. It can be affirmed here that if the student honestly applies his mind and intellect and devotes all his efforts and energies with a high sense of purpose and perseverance, he will never fait to get the conviction and complete satisfaction accruing from this lofty pursuit.

To cater to the needs of young and immature minds of our present age of nuclear science this first book has tackled the problem of - "The Relevance of Vedanta in this Modern Age of Civilization" - from first principles. so to speak, and if only it kindles a spark of genuine interest and taste in this highly developed "Science of Spirituality" among its readers my objective of publishing these books purely for the sake of propagation without any profit-motive whatsoever would be fulfilled.

I will fail in my moral duty if I do not acknowledge here the continued munificent donations that the members of “Subharam Trust" have provided in the past and for this publication too and the excellent printing by "Chitra Printers", Bangalore.

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.
