This volume is a collection of texts; aphorisms, sayings; proverbs; etc., from “The Upanishads,” or Sacred Writings of India; compiled and adapted from over fifty authorities, expressing the Cream of the Hindu Philosophical Thought. The contents of this book are self explanatory, and need little introduction. The wonderful philosophy of “The Upanishads,” is so generally recognized that words of praise would be superfluous. Many can say with the German philosopher, Schopenhauer: “In the whole world there is no study so beneficial and so elevating as that of ‘The Upanishads.’ It has been the solace of my life; it will be the solace of my death.” Nearly every aphorism in the book emphasizes this Truth, in various words and forms of expression, and many of them are intended to lead the reader to a Realization of The Truth. Some of these seed thoughts will appeal to one, and others to another each will draw to himself that which is his, and will let the rest pass him by. This is the Law of Learning: Accept only that which appeals to your Heart, as Truth—let the rest pass you by, for the time being—for to each comes his own; and none can gain his own, until he is prepared for it. The words of the Yogavasishtha, quoted on our title page, intended to convey this same truth.
