The Essence of the Aitareya and Taittiriya Upanishads
by Swami Krishnananda


Preface

The lectures on the Aitareya and Taittiriya Upanishads were delivered by the author a few years back during the annual session of Sadhana Week at Headquarters. The theme of these discourses centres round the cosmological narrative of the Aitareya Upanishad and the psychological analysis of the Taittiriya Upanishad. The importance of this revealing subject would be amply clear to anyone who recognises the significance of the psychophysical structure of the human individual in relation to the universe or creation as a whole. Thus, this detailed study forms not merely an entertaining journey through the cosmos right from the point of its origin down to the lowest predicament of human nature in its sociological associations and involvements, but also an acute meditation on man’s divine relevance to the Supreme Being.

This publication is intended to serve as a positive spiritual guide to all seekers the world over.
