This little book contains a few salient and popular Hymns, Prayers and Mantras that are used regularly in the Ashrams of Sri Swami Jyotirmayananda. It is dedicated to all aspirants to enjoy, to memorize, to reflect upon, and imbibe in one's daily spiritual practice.
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 most loved and revered scripture in philosophical literature. The highest summit of “Perfection” is Self-realization, the goal of life. “Be ye perfect as your Father in Heaven,” said Lord Jesus. This book, through the teachings given by Lord Krishna to the ideal aspirant Arjuna, summarises beautifully the quest, the goal and the journey.
