The Upanishads (Spiritual Awakening)
The Upanishads (Spiritual Awakening)
Description
Preface

Not only have the Upanishads fascinated the Indian mind through ages, but also evoked the admiration of scholars and philosophers of the West. Forming the concluding portion of the Vedas--the Vedanta--the Upanishads embody the accumulated wisdom of centuries. They are neither sectarian nor dogmatic. They are the result of free thinking and interaction encouraged among the seekers by the ancient rishis. Relevant and useful at all times, they preach the spiritual unity of mankind.

The highly profound and subtle truths of Vedantic teachings were lucidly brought out by Swami Paramarthananda in a series of talks he delivered in Chennai from October 2000 to December 2001, as part of his week-end classes on the subject. A disciple of Swami Dayananda Sarasvati, he has been spreading the message of Vedanta for more than 25 years and is renowned as a systematic and committed teacher of the sampradya (tradition) of Adi Sankaracharya.

This volume is a compilation of the edited extracts from the lectures, by Sri R. B. Athreya, a student of the Swamiji, and published as a series of articles in the Tattvâioka monthly issues from April 2002 to April 2005. The talks started with an introduction to the Vedanta, followed by a summary of each of the principal Upanishads.

Sri Athreya, after serving for over 25 years in banks in India and the Middle East now devotes all his time to spiritual pursuits. He and his wife are ardent Srividya Upasakas, initiated by Brahmasri Anna Subramaniam, well-known publisher of many of Sri Ramakrishna Mutt publications.

This volume, it is hoped, will be a refresher course for students of Vedanta and those desiring to get initiated into Vedantic study.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
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.
