The Essence of the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
by Swami Krishnananda

Publishers' Preface

The present publication is the quintessence of the Teachings of the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, which the Swamiji presented at the conclusion of his exposition of this Upanishad for about four months during the first half of the year 1977.

The importance of this essential purport of the Upanishad is especially in that it provides a magnificent scope for aiding seekers in the practice of meditation in the higher reaches and more advanced forms of spiritual life.

We are particularly indebted to the silent aspirant who carefully transcribed this discourse from the tape-recorded material.

We are sure that here is a unique opportunity for everyone endeavouring to tread the path of the Higher Life.    

Shivanandanagar, 27th June, 1977.
