The Bhagavad Gita (pocket edition)
Pocket version with Sanskrit, transliteration and English translation by Swami Jyotirmayananda. There is no scripture as profound, practical, clear and succinct as the Bhagavad Gita. It is the essence of the Vedas, Upanishads and Brahma Sutras, and universal in its exposition of man’s movement towards God. This book makes a great little spiritual companion.
The Upanishads constitute the essence of the teachings from the Vedas, laying the foundation for the non-dualistic school of Advaita Vedanta. In this book, Swami Jyotirmayananda brilliantly conveys the wisdom of four major Upanishadic texts – Kena, Mundaka, Prashna, and Ishavasya – in a concise and simple manner. The author’s translation and commentary of these ancient works enumerate for the spiritual seeker, in fine detail, the timeless truths realized through the spiritual revelations of the ancient sages and saints of India.
The comprehensive philosophy of Yoga-Vedanta, unparalleled in its profound wisdom, serves as a template for every individual to break the fetters of the psychological illusions projected by the conditioned mind, and live a life of purpose, poise, and contentment, in full knowledge of one’s True Essence.
In this masterful rendition of the Yoga Vasistha, Sri Swami Jyotirmayananda sifts through the highly complex mystic truths as presented by Sage Vasistha to Lord Rama, rendering them crystal clear for the serious spiritual aspirant to read, reflect, and imbibe.
Volumes I, II, and III of Swamiji’s original Yoga Vasistha books are combined into this newly bound book.
A selection of inspirational quotes by Swami Jyotirmayananda drawn from his writings, lectures, and interviews on Yoga and Vedanta.
