In Wisdom of the Ancient Sages, Swami Rama shares with the modern reader the powerful and inspiring teachings of one of the world’s greatest spiritual texts-the Mundaka Upanishad. This beautiful translation and commentary affirms the core, essential nature of the human beings as complete, peaceful, creative and transcendent and describes the process by which we can experience our inner nature. Its message will assist anyone who seeks to walk the path of personal and spiritual development.
“The Upanishadic teachings are like flowers gathered from the garden of the limitless. The seers, the teachers of the Upanishads, strung a thread through these flowers, so that each teaching became a garland. Today’s world is passing through a serious crisis: stress, unhappiness, and disease are increasing. Mankind has forgotten the ancient landmark of its noble history. I pray that modern men and women become aware that life has two aspects-within and without. Without constructing this bridge of understanding-between within and without, between ancient and modern-real happiness, peace, and bliss are unattainable.”
