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.
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.
Yoga Essays for Self Improvement is a collection of universally applicable, practical, and
insightful writings in the light of Yoga and Vedanta philosophy that allows an individual to enrich one’s understanding to successfully navigate the road of life. In this book, Swami Jyotirmayananda articulately addresses commonplace questions such as “How to Remove Anxiety” or “How to Develop Compassion” that often assail the mind of an individual seeking to achieve greater harmony and meaning in the fast pace of the modern world.
