Book Description
Back of the Book

It is the solution given by Sage Vasishta when Sri Rama was caught in the storm of doubts regarding the ultimate nature of Supreme-self.

It is the solution in the form of logical deductions and practical observations for a better understanding of the nature of Supreme-self.

It is a correlations of apparently divergent references of Upanishads.

It is a poetic classic but allegorically explains the absolute and presented in his unique, graceful way by the sage poet Valmiki

It is a presentation from Brahmasri Kuppa Venkata Krishna Murthy, the Vidyadhikari of Avadhoota data Peetham Mysore in the form of his “Musings on Yogavaasishta – III (Sustenance)” – a treatise of comparisons and correlations of the ancient traditional knowledge and the modern scientific knowledge, through his lectures in the Gemini T.V on “Yogavaasishta”.

Benediction of the Chief Pontiff Avadhoota Datta Peetham

Jagadguru Parama Pujya Sri Sri Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji

‘Yogavaasishtam’ is a very useful book for all those who know many things in the spiritual line, or who do not know any thing in that line, and who wish to enter into that line. To know about spirituality is different and experiencing is different. Our endeared devotee Kuppa Krishna Murthy experienced spiritual flavor in all the three ways due to his continual presence at the feet of Sadguru. So your Swamiji has been using him as His mouthpiece to serially analyse and explain this rare classic the way He wanted through the TV Channel for his devotees and the entire mankind at large and also go this trentise written by him.

All of you should read nay study this with a steady mind and sincerely render yourself deserving for the grace of Sri Datta

Author’s Note

My series of lectures on Yogavaasishta, since the last two years, in Gemini T.V has reached the hearts of many listeners of varied classes, bringing satisfaction to these aspirants in philosophy. It is much more heartening to people like me, who are earnestly desiring always to bring this profound subject to within the comprehensible reach of common man.

Dr.D.R.Rao and Smt.Vijaya has brought out these lectures on the first two chapters as Yogavaasishta Hridayam — Part I in Telugu during 2002 and its English version as Musings on Yogavaasishta — Part I during 2003; the second part of Telugu version during 2004. But for their resolution, my indolence would have been victorious.

Subjective wise, this second part is more profound than the first part. The chapter on creation only has to be brought out as this work. The chapters on creation, existence and quietitude, when assumed as a single bunch, this chapter on creation becomes or forms the vital core of that bunch.

Who will believe this chapter that is loudly broadcasting that this world do not exist at all from metaphysical aspect? Who will understand Valmiki Maharshi’s intricate logical arguments or discussions brought out or made through Vasishta Maharshi? How far the modern intelligentsia that has been brought up the modern scientific background or base can understand this? — The feedback given to me through some listeners of ultra modern culture and NRIs has shown me that all such sceptical thoughts are baseless imaginations only. Tb express my hearty satisfaction over this feedback, two such impressions are enclosed herewith.

Science is logic. Philosophy is also logic. That is one branch. This is another branch. It is not a difficult task to move from one branch to another, once you climbed the tree. To prove that one who has studied the modern sciences with a razor sharp intelligence can also understand philosophy that has been conveyed logically, these two letters are enclosed herewith. That is why; I am not conveying my special gratitude to them. I am congratulating all such intelligentsia, silently, within myself.

The preface given in the first part is also added in this with the hope that it will help the reader to have a better comprehension of the original version.

I was also a listener to these lectures! A reader to these musings! l There is someone else who is giving these lectures from inside me and also writing these musings!!! I pray my Sadguru Sri Ganapathi Satchidananda Swamiji to grant the compassion of that ‘Self’ to all of us as our ‘self—experience’.

Writer’s Appeal
(For Yogavaasishta Part – I)

Why should one muse over a book?
To see clearly what is hidden in the heart of the author.
Why does an author hide his heart'?

He does so to make it more luminous for those who find. So the poet hides his heart in the petals of words and not in the iron boxes

His heart should reach the readers, but only to those who strives to get it. This is the view of great poets! It is the inner vision in their creation.

Though my effort in writing ‘Yogavaasishta’ is not considerable, it is through the grace of my revered Sadguru Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji that the heart of the Sage Poet Valmiki has been revealed to me without much effort and it continued to be the feeling in the throughout the exercise. It is my fortune. The Gemini TV Serial telecast of the discourses on ‘Yogavaasishta’ enabled me to share my musings with my brother readers.

The Great Poet Kalidas Said: "Madhumaya Phaniteenaam Marghadarsi Maharshih" — the paths shown by Maharshi Valmiki are blended with honey. It is truer in respect of Vasishta Ramayana than the original Ramayana.

It might not be very difficult even for an ordinary poet to have his creation invested with a sense of fulfillment when he selected such a person as Sri Rama as the hero of his subject and the annihilation of Ravana as the central theme. But, with sheer philosophy as the crux of the subject and packing it with subtle and scientific arguments, stretching it to 32000 verses, and maintaining its poeticality has been possible only to Sage Poet Valmiki. So far none has been there to compete with him and fulfill such a task. Perhaps none might be there in future too.

Having got the perception with the blessings of my revered master, I began eagerly to search for the ‘heart’ of the great poet. In this respect, Paramahamsa Sri Samadaananda Bodhendra Saraswathi came to my rescue again and again. His commentary, “Taatparya Prakaasa” enabled me to have the fruits and the essence of ‘Yogavaasihta’. It is with this strength that I could gain access to the heart of Yogavaasishta.
