Description
Preface

There is a well-meaning criticism from Vedantic scholars from time to time that the majority of our people are nointerested to familiarise themselves with our fundamental philosophy and culture. At the same time, it should also be observed that efforts to popularise our Vedantic philosophy in a manner intelligible to a large number of people are not forth-coming. One could well ask which should precede, the interest or the response to it? The uniqueness of human birth and its evolution after a mind-boggling cycle of births and deaths (evolution of human life is said to take place after undergoing 8,400,000 lives of various types of species) needs to be understood, besides the fact that if one does not utilise this life to overcome further births, one will slide back requiring millenniums for one to come back to human life. Kenopanishad puts it succinctly (2.5) that a havoc befalls those who do not make efforts to realise Brahman in this life itself (Mahatii Vinashatthi) .

present effort is, at best, meant to create an awareness and interest in the subject. It is not from a scholar to a layman - it is from one aspirant to another. All the same, efforts have been made to bring together all the salient aspects of Upanishads in a condensed manner in this small pocket edition - size is very important in keeping reader's interest alive right through.

The special feature in this book is an effort to highlight Sri Ramanuja's vast use of Upanishads for writing Sri Bhashya, Gita Bhashya and Vedartha Sangraha. It is hoped that at least a handful of readers will get interested to study bigger treatises on Upanishads with original in the language of their choice. In fact readers can choose anyone Upanishad for detailed study, if possible, with the help of a teacher, and move in the direction of the 'realisation of Brahman'.

Preface

There is a well-meaning criticism from Vedantic scholars from time to time that the majority of our people are nointerested to familiarise themselves with our fundamental philosophy and culture. At the same time, it should also be observed that efforts to popularise our Vedantic philosophy in a manner intelligible to a large number of people are not forth-coming. One could well ask which should precede, the interest or the response to it? The uniqueness of human birth and its evolution after a mind-boggling cycle of births and deaths (evolution of human life is said to take place after undergoing 8,400,000 lives of various types of species) needs to be understood, besides the fact that if one does not utilise this life to overcome further births, one will slide back requiring millenniums for one to come back to human life. Kenopanishad puts it succinctly (2.5) that a havoc befalls those who do not make efforts to realise Brahman in this life itself (Mahatii Vinashatthi) .

Ramakrishna, Australia
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.
Bernd, Spain
