Of the ten Upanishads considered to be more important than the others, this book carries two. They are the Brihadaranyaka and Chandogya Upanishads. Not only in content, in their size too, these two score over the other eight namely the Isha, Kena, Prasna, Kata, Mundaka, Mandukya, Taittariya, and Aitareya. The hymns are not only rendered into English, but followed by comments, though brief. The comments are meant to facilitate easier comprehension of the message of the hymn by the lay reader. This is a unique feature of this work that you do not find even in most of the other renderings considered to be excellent otherwise.

The Upanishads: one of three new editions of the books in Eknath Easwaran's Classics of Indian Spirituality series You are what your deep driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny. - Brihadaranyaka Upanishad (IV.4.5) Over two thousand years ago, the sages of India embarked on an extraordinary experiment. While others were exploring the external world, they turned inward - to explore consciousness itself. In the changing flow of human thought, they asked, is there anything that remains the same? They found that there is indeed a changeless Reality underlying the ebb and flow of life. Their discoveries are an expression of what Aldous Huxley called the Perennial Philosophy, the wellspring of all religious faith that assures us that God-realization is within human reach. The Upanishads are the sages' wisdom, given in intense sessions of spiritual instruction in ashrams, in family gatherings, in a royal court, in the kingdom of Death himself. And Easwaran shows how these teachings are just as relevant to us now as they ever were centuries ago.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The B had ra yaka Upanishad (Sanskrit: ) is one of the older, "primary" (mukhya) Upanishads. It is contained within the Shatapatha Brahmana, and its status as an independent Upanishad may be considered a secondary extraction of a portion of the Brahmana text. This makes it one of the oldest texts of the Upanishad corpus. It is largely the oldest Upanishad, excluding some parts which were composed after the Chandogya. and the largely neglected Jaiminiya Upanisad Brahmana. It is associated with the Shukla Yajurveda. It figures as number 10 in the Muktika canon of 108 Upanishads and was notably commented upon by Adi Shankara.

It is one of the oldest text, part of Sama Ved, Rig Ved being the oldest text ever written in history of mankind. This story is about me Shevtaketu, And how I understand the Universal Consciousness "The Brahman". This series is a continuation of our current works Upanishads. Technically complied by several thousands of years before the common Era. The Upanishads contain revealed truth (Sruti) about Brahman (God), the Ultimate Reality and the way of salvation (Moksha). Term Upanishad derives from upa- ('nearby'), ni- ('at the proper place, down') and sad ('to sit') and it means 'sitting near a teacher to receive the sacred teachings'. Vedanta (anta 'the end' or 'last portion') is the essence and culmination of all the knowledge within the Vedas. Vedas (vid - 'to know', 'knowledge' of the eternal truth). Of the 108 Upanishads that have been preserved 12 are considered the principle Upanishads. The Upanishads most of all are the record of what the sages and seers perceived in thought and visions and are not an organized systems of philosophy. They have elucidated the most important questions of human existence: Purpose of Life Nature of Brahman (God) The Origin of the Universe Karma Rebirth Maya Afterlife Immortality The Upanishads deal the disciplines of philosophical knowledge (jnana), divine love (bhakti), action (karma), and yoga. They express the same truth as the Bhagavad Gita and the Brahma Sutras. Brahman (lit. brih - 'to grow, to expand' also 'the greatest') is God. The Sanskrit name for God is Sat-Chit-Ananda = Sat (Existence), Chit (Consciousness), Ananda (Bliss). Brahman is Sat-Chit-Ananda in many different forms and God the formless (Existence, Consciousness and Bliss). Brahman is the Universal Spirit; the Ultimate Reality, Pure Consciousness; the one existence; the Absolute; "the unchanging reality amidst and beyond the world", which "cannot be exactly defined". The instructions regarding Brahman were often given in short formulas also known as Upanishads. "It's secret name (Upanishad) is Satyasya Satyam, 'the Truth of truth.' [Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 2.1.20] The form of that person is like a cloth dyed with turmeric, or like grey sheep's wool, or like the scarlet insect called Indragopa, or like a tongue of fire, or like a white lotus, or like a flash of lightning. He who knows this-his splendour is like a flash of lightning. Now, therefore, the description of Brahman: "Not this, not this" (Neti, Neti); for there is no other and more appropriate description than this "Not this." Now the designation of Brahman: "The Truth of truth." The vital breath is truth and it (Brahman) is the Truth of that. - Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 2.3.6

Excerpt: Upanishad is an Upanishad, associated with the Atharvaveda. It figures in the Muktika canon of 108 Upanishads (as number 95). As with most of the late Upanishads, the Gopla-tpan is said to be attached to the Atharva-veda. In the Muktik, the distribution of the Upanishads between the g, ukla-yajus, Ka-yajus, Sma and Atharvan is rather complicated. Nevertheless, all four Tpin Upanishads (Nsiha, Rma, Tripur and Gopla) are also listed there as belonging to the Atharvaveda Of the 108 Upanishads commented on by Upanishad Brahmayogin, eight are kta, fifteen aiva, and fourteen Vaiava. The Vaishnava Upanishads are . Although the appears to be one of the earliest of the Vaishnava Upanishads, neither it nor any of the others has achieved the kind of special status amongst later Vaiava schools that the Gopla-tpan has. There are many problems in trying to date the Gopla-tpan, as none of the reference points that we have are very solid. The Muktikopaniad, which lists Gopla-tpan as one of the 108 Upanishads, is itself undated and is thus not of much help. The Gaudiya Vaishnavas also quote the Gautamya-tantra at the beginning of the Gopla-tpan in order to establish that this Upanishad is rute ira, the topmost text of the...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=16899693

PRACTICAL TEACHINGS FOR PEACE AND FULFILLMENT In this clear introduction to the Vedanta philosophy of India, you'll discover a new perspective that can bring inner peace, inner strength and improve your relationships for a happier life. This spiritual book written by Paul Hourihan, an American, introduces these ancient teachings in a way that Westerners, in particular, can easily relate to and understand. Why learn about the teachings of Vedanta? - According to Vedanta, ignorance of our real nature is the cause of our suffering and grief. The practical application of this philosophy is the means to Self-discovery, integration and inner peace for those of all faiths and those with no particular faith. - By stressing the universal truths common to all religions, they provide a unifying basis for mutual understanding and peace in a world increasingly fragmented by opposing beliefs. - They provide a foundation for understanding why a moral and ethical life are necessary. - This knowledge gives us the means for realizing our true identity as Children of Immortal Bliss. Using the teachings of the Upanishads, this study covers the main principles and core concepts of Vedanta and covers important subjects such as meditation, nonattachment. It also provides an overview of the mysticism of India and a summary of the Yoga system of thought, as well as the Bhagavad Gita, another key Vedantic scripture. The last section reveals the universality of these teachings through confirmations of great mystics from other traditions including Plotinus, Lao Tzu, Meister Eckhart and the Sufis of Islam. Vedanta shows the way to inner peace, harmony among all peoples, and respect for all life.

Is suicide wrong, profoundly morally wrong? Almost always wrong, but excusable in a few cases? Sometimes morally permissible? Imprudent, but not wrong? Is it sick, a matter of mental illness? Is it a private matter or a largely social one? Could it sometimes be right, or a "noble duty," or even a fundamental human right? Whether it is called "suicide" or not, what role may a person play in the end of his or her own life? This collection of primary sources--the principal texts of ethical interest from major writers in western and nonwestern cultures, from the principal religious traditions, and from oral cultures where observer reports of traditional practices are available, spanning Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Oceania, the Arctic, and North and South America--facilitates exploration of many controversial practical issues: physician-assisted suicide or aid-in-dying; suicide in social or political protest; self-sacrifice and martyrdom; suicides of honor or loyalty; religious and ritual practices that lead to death, including sati or widow-burning, hara-kiri, and sallekhana, or fasting unto death; and suicide bombings, kamikaze missions, jihad, and other tactical and military suicides. This collection has no interest in taking sides in controversies about the ethics of suicide; rather, rather, it serves to expand the character of these debates, by showing them to be multi-dimensional, a complex and vital part of human ethical thought.

This book is the second part of a major project of comparative theology begun with Religion and Revelation (Clarendon Press, 1994), which looks at major concepts of faith in all four of the main scriptural religions of the world. In Religion and Creation, the author explores the idea of a creator God in the work of twentieth century writers from Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity. He develops a positive concept of God which stresses God's dynamic and responsive relation to the temporal structure of the universe, and the importance of that structure to the self-expression of the divine being. Professor Ward goes on to present a Trinitarian doctrine of creation, drawing inspiration from a wider set of theistic traditions and recent discussions in physics in the realm of cosmology.
