Foreword

This text is based on the discourses conducted in New Delhi from December 1992 - January 1993, extending over about seven weeks.

Vedanta dindimah is a text with a beautiful rhythm. It is a lightly packed, highly charged quintessence of vedantik thought. Almost all the topics of vedantik study are covered in these ninety-four sloks-s. There is a running link between one sloka and the next, a natural flow from one thought to another, taking the student from vedentik exposition to sadhana, and to the vision of the ultimate experience (Anubhuti). Not a word is out of place, not a syllable an idle one.

The discourses therefore, follow the pattern of : Detailed exposition of the text, unveiling layer by deeper layer of pregnant thought held in the womb of each word, phrase and sloks, followed by elaborate guidelines on how to transfer this understanding to one's own sadhana:

Since the theme of the text is to convey what the Sruti-s, the scriptures, the ultimate authority tell us about THE GOAL of human existence with all the force at one's command, every sloka ends with the sentence, "Thus declare the vedsms sastra-s." One who makes a technical study of the text would be expected to trace and study the various Upenisads etc. which echo the thoughts.

The purpose of the discourses being more in the nature of a Sadhana guide, and less a technical study, the quotations given are selective. Wherever possible, the text is quoted in full, with meaning. Sometimes, only the meaning is given and the reference is made to the original text.

It is but natural that such a reflective, sadhana -oriented study should every now and again glide into the subtler plane of meditation. These meditativ

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
