EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The first readable and accurate translation of twenty of the most authoritative Hindu documents pertaining to ascetic ideals and the ascetic way of life, this text opens to students a major source for the study of the Hindu ascetical institutions and of the historical changes they underwent during a period of a thousand years or more. Beginning with an analysis of the historical context that gave rise to Indian ascetical institutions and ideologies, Patrick Olivelle moves on to elucidate the meaning of renunciation—the central institution of holiness in most Hindu traditions—and the function and significance of the various elements that constitute the rite of renunciation. The Samnyasa Upanisads will be an unparalleled source of information and insight for students of Hinduism and Indian asceticism, mysticism, and holiness.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Upaniṣads are among the most sacred foundational scriptures in the Hindu religion. Composed from 800 BCE onward and making up part of the larger Vedic corpus, they offer the reader "knowledge lessons" on life, death, and immortality. While they are essential to understanding Hinduism and Asian religions more generally, their complexities make them almost impenetrable to anyone but serious scholars of Sanskrit and ancient Indian culture. This book is divided into five parts: Composition, authorship, and transmission of the Upaniṣads; The historical, cultural, and religious background of the Upaniṣads; Religion and philosophy in the Upaniṣads; The classical Upaniṣads; The later Upaniṣads. The chapters cover critical issues such as the origins of the Upaniṣads, authorship, and redaction as well as exploring the broad religious and philosophical themes within the texts. The guide analyses each of the Upaniṣads separately, unpacking their contextual relevance and explaining difficult terms and concepts. The Upaniṣads: A Complete Guide is a unique and valuable reference source for undergraduate religious studies, history, and philosophy students and researchers who want to learn more about these foundational sacred texts and the religious lessons in the Hindu tradition.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

It is generally opined though erroneously, that the Vedanta or Upanisads are beyond the reach of common lot of people, and are meant for only the recluses dedicated to the spiritual quest. Swami Vivekananda not only introduced them to the general public, but also tried to convince them that the Upanisads have solutions to our common problems. The essays presented in this book attempt to give a glimpse into the Upanisadic methodology or Vicara as it is called, which makes use of doubt and inquiry.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Of the traditional 108 Upanisads, only the ten principal ones are well-known. The Saiva Upanisads comprise fifteen of the less-known ones. In this book they were translated into English for the first time. The translation follows the commentary of Upanisadbrahmayogin, the only writer known who has commented on all 108 Upanisads. This provides a consistency of interpretation for these often obscure texts. He follows the Advaita Vedanta school of Sankaracarya. The classification as Saiva is traditional only. These texts are wide-ranging, and include the famous Svetasvatara Upanisad. They are essential works for those interested in Indian religion.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Being the 'Revealed Knowledge', the Upanishads form the foundations of the Indian philosophical heritage. Upanishads are aptly described as Vedanta, acme of the Veda that postulates brotherhood of humankind and universal oneness of the entire existence, living and non-living. Inspired by them, scholars over the ages have crafted a vast literature propounding the teachings of these treatises. This book presents the essence of this message through selecting a few parables and dialogues from Upanishadic tradition. The content has been so arranged that it helps the reader to progress from self-consciousness to 'self-actualization'. The common perception is that the Upanishads are religious texts meant for ritual reading. This work believes them to be spiritual treatises blending logic and faith for contemplation and reflection. The work has been divided into two parts. The Part One contains twelve parables selected from four Vedic Upnishads viz. the Kena, the Chhandogya, the Katha and the Brihadarnyaka. The instruction proceeds from the known to the unknown and from the elementary to the complex. Part Two includes six dialogues, all taken from the Yajnavalkya Episode of the Brihadarankopnishad, untwining the mystery of non-duality. Each piece has a curtain raiser and a short note in the manner of an epilogue while the text retains the original flavor.
