The Ten Principal Upanishads Book Review:

The Upanishads are a group of texts in Hindu sacred literature that are considered to reveal the ultimate truth and whose knowledge is considered to lead to spiritual emancipation. In the Upanishads, we find the finest flowering of the Indian metaphysical and speculative thought. They are utterances of seers who spoke out of the fullness of their illumined experience. Upanishad is derived from upa (near), ni (down) and sad (to sit). Hence, the term implies the pupils, intent on learning, sitting near the teacher to acquire knowledge and truth. There are over 200 Upanishads but the traditional number is 108. Of them, only 10 are the principal Upanishads: Isha, Kena, Katha, Prashan, Mundaka, Mandukya, Tattiriya, Aitareya, Chhandogya and Brihadaranyaka. This book is a forerunner in introducing these primary Upanishads to the uninitiated.

The Vedas and Upanishads for Children Book Review:

Three thousand years ago, deep inside the forests of India, a great ‘thought revolution’ was brewing. In those forest labs, the brightest thinker–philosophers contemplated the universe, reflected on ancient texts called the Vedas and came up with startling insights into questions we still don’t have final answers to, like: • What is the universe made of? • How do I know I’m looking at a tree when I see one? • Who am I? My body, my mind, my intelligence, my emotions, or none of the above? And where did they put those explosive findings? In a sprawling body of goosebumpy and fascinating oral literature called the Upanishads! Intimidated? Don’t be! For this joyful, fun guide to some of India’s longest-lasting secular wisdoms, reinterpreted for first-time explorers by Roopa Pai, is guaranteed to keep you turning the pages. Why haven’t you read it yet?

The Upanishads--II : Kena And Other Upanishads Book Review:

The Upanishads has now been expanded and brought out in two volumes, with much new material published for the first time in book form. The single volume The Upanishads has been discontinued, with all its content included in the two new volumes, each available as an independent book. The Kena Upanishad is concerned with the relation of mind-consciousness to Brahman-consciousness , writes Sri Aurobindo in his commentary on this work. The material world and the physical life exist for us only by virtue of our internal self and our internal life. According as our mental instruments represent to us the external world, according as our vital force in obedience to the mind deals with its impacts and objects, so will be our outward life and existence. Along with Sri Aurobindo's final translation of and commentary on the Kena, this book includes his translations of six other Upanishads as well as several other translations and commentaries, and essays such as 'The Philosophy of the Upanishads'.

Isha Upanishad Book Review:

This book contains Sri Aurobindo s final translation and analysis of the Isha Upanishad. In his definitive commentary on this important Vedantic scripture, he presents its central idea, which is a reconciliation and harmony of fundamental opposites, and shows how in its verses one can discover the resolution of such pairs of opposites such as God and Nature, renunciation and enjoyment, action and freedom, the active and inactive Brahman, and works and knowledge.

The Call of the Upanishads Book Review:

The seers and sages of Ancient India revealed fundamental principles of perennial philosophy. The Upanishads contain the essential principles of this perennial-this ageless philosophy. They contain a large number of inspiring and instructive passages and verses. It has not been possible to include all of them in this book. For the purposes of this book the author has taken those verses and passages that have a bearing on the mystical teaching of the Upanishads. It is mysticism which is the very core of the Upanishads-and so in understanding its mysticism one comes to the heart of the sublime and magnificent teaching of the Upanishads. In this age, where science and technology may lead us into a world devoid of meaning and significance. Modern man needs today a meaningful philosophy if the achievements of science are not to lead him to greater and greater destruction-but to sublime and majestic heights of creative living. It is in the Vision of Life given by the Upanishads that man can find the fundamental philosophy of Creative Living-a philosophy that can serve as a Beacon Light even in the midst of surrounding darkness, a philosophy that can lead him from the unreal to the Real, from darkness to Light, from death to Immortality.

Laghu Guru Upanishad Book Review:

Modern life is very competitive and stressful; only a thoughtful few want to rid themselves of constant worries and find a way to live a life of real happiness. Teachings of Sri Sivabala Yogi contained in Laghu Guru Upanishad are especially relevant for such people. There are many grades of aspirants; some just want to lead a peaceful life, some want a lower type of salvation and a few blessed ones who desire total freedom by realising their true natures. Ultimate liberation is attained only if one knows the absolute Self (or Reality or God). No matter what ones goal is, the Gurus teaching given in Laghu Guru Upanishad, if practised sincerely, offers hope to everyone to attain ones desired end. The book is set out in question and answer format. The questions, asked by Gurprasad, have been framed from an aspirants point of view. Questions and doubts like these arise in the minds of all those who want to follow a spiritual path. The Guru has given answers that are suitable for ease of understanding by beginners as well as more advanced aspirants. In doing so, the Guru has adopted a rational approach suited to the modern generation and covers all well-known paths to realise the Truth. Sri Sivabala Yogis basic teaching deals with control of mind and it does not advocate any religious beliefs. Mind is the cause of ones suffering and unhappiness and it also has the power to get rid of them. Bookish knowledge is of no avail unless it is practised. Every reader of this book can attain his or her desired spiritual object, provided its teaching is put into effect through earnest effort.

In Quest of God Book Review:

COMPARABLE IN LASTING significance to the famous classics TheWay of a Pilgrim and Brother Lawrence's The Practice of the Presence of God, this book is an extraordinary spiritual autobiography. It recounts the story of a homeless monk's journey as he travels the dusty roads and paths of the Indian subcontinent, from the ancient temples of the south to the awe-inspiring, snow-covered Himalayas of the north. This is the tale of a pilgrimage, vividly and compellingly told, taken with the hallmarks of complete faith in the Creator and constant remembrance of God. Swami Ramdas did not accept money and treated all people he encountered as manifestations of his Beloved. The narrative contains many inspiring accounts of how his pure love transformed people who at first treated him very harshly. Whatever situation he was placed in, he didn't fail to notice the lighter side, which appealed to his keen sense of the comic and ludicrous in life. He never lost this quality, even after he became God-intoxicated and lived on the road in total, blissful surrender to the divine will. Many readers find themselves in a lifelong love affair with this story. This book is the first in a trilogy chronicling Swami Ramdas' pilgrimage to God-realization. The next two volumes, In the Vision of God, volumes I and II, are also available from Blue Dove Press.
