by Swami Krishnananda
In the Upanishads can be found the answer to our quest for higher knowledge – knowledge which ends the churning and turbulence of our restless spirit. The changefulness of things that we experience is verily in the direction of a higher state; this in turn leads to the recognition of a spiritual background to life which is the true nature of all existence. And this change, says Swami Krishnananda very eloquently, “…could not be perceived without the presence of something that is not changing in ourselves…something in us which is not finite.”
It is the call of this changeless Infinite that the Upanishads in general and this book in particular address through simple, succinct nuggets of handpicked teachings carefully chosen from the principle Upanishads and woven seamlessly into a tapestry of wisdom. This book is a bouquet of rich lectures delivered by Swami Krishnananda in 1990 to the students of the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy and reveals the message of the Upanishads in a most lucid manner. It is a priceless treasure and a boon to all seekers of Truth.
