The Upanishads are the sages' wisdom, given in intense sessions of spiritual instruction in ashrams, in family gatherings, in a royal court, in the kingdom of Death himself. And Eas waran shows how these teachings are just as revelant to us now as they ever were centuries ago.

Review:

Formerly a professor of Victorian literature, Eknath Easwaran discovered the treasures of wisdom in his own native India and began to pursue them with a passion. He has since studied them, practised them, and shared them with the Western world. In his translation of The Upanishads, the font of Indian spirituality, Easwaran delights us with a readable rendition of one of the most difficult texts of all religious traditions. Each Upanishad is a lyrical statement on the deeper truths of mysticism, from the different levels of awareness to cultivation of love for God. There's one twist, though, for ultimately a devoted meditator realises that God and the world are not separate from oneself. Then the ultimate goal becomes to reunite with the universal Self, achieving the infinite joy that accompanies such union. Easwaran recruits Michael Nagler to contribute notes to the translation and a lengthy afterword, which together with introductions to each Upanishad, guide us well through this strange and fruitful landscape. --Brian Bruya

Book Description Jaico Publishing House, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. First edition. In the ancient wisdom texts called the Upanishads, illumined sages share flashes of insight, the results of their investigation into consciousness itself. In extraordinary visions, they experience directly a transcendent Reality which is the essence, or Self, of each created being. They teach that each of us, each Self, is eternal, deathless, one with the power that created the universe. Easwaran‚ s translation is reliable and readable, consistently the bestseller in its field. It includes an overview of the cultural and historical setting, with chapter introductions, notes, and a Sanskrit glossary. But it is Easwaran‚ s understanding of the wisdom of the Upanishads, and their relevance to the modern reader, that makes this edition truly outstanding. Each sage, each Upanishad, appeals in different ways to the reader‚ s head and heart. In the end, Easwaran writes, ‚ The Upanishads belong not just to Hinduism. They are India‚ s precious legacy to humanity, and in that spirit they are offered here.‚ Contents:- Introduction 1. The Inner Ruler Isha 2. Death as Teacher Katha 3. The Forest of Wisdom Brihadaranyaka 4. Sacred Song Chandogya 5. The Faces of God Shventashvatara 6. Modes of Knowing Mundaka 7. Consciousness its Phases Printed Pages: 384. Seller Inventory # 7964
