Based on the wisdom of the Upanishads, the most ancient and authoritative scriptures of India, this book is an insightful introduction to the teachings of vedanta in a contemporary manner without compromising its traditional contents.
Vedanta says that no individual needs salvation because he or she is never lost but merely living in ignorance of his or her true nature. The collection of essays here is meant to provide a background, in language which appeals to our reason, for further exploration of this extraordinary insight of ancient sages.
