By Nirmalananda Giri

The Upanishads have lengthy scholars of philosophy within the West. TheEnglish thinker Hume translated a few of them into English within the eighteenthcentury. Later he travelled to the US the place he taught Sanskrit to Thomas Jeffersonand jointly they studied the Upanishads of their unique form.The maximum boon seekers of fact during this state have acquired are thetranslations of the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita–The Upanishads, Breath of theEternal, and The track of God, Bhagavad Gita–made via Swami Prabhavananda of theVedanta Society of Southern California within the nineteen-forties. i used to be privileged to hearhim converse in 1962, and the worth and readability of his insights have been outstanding. In histranslations he didn't try out a precise literalism, but they impart the meanings of thetexts much better than such a lot who test for literal wording. examining his translation of theGita replaced my lifestyles in 1960, and every little thing which occurred in a while used to be aconsequence of that. My debt to him is incalculable and as a result unpayable. I lookedat many translations earlier than taking on the duty of commenting at the Upanishads, and Ifound Swamiji’s model inescapable. the sunshine of the Self (Atma Jyoti) radiates fromthe pages, conveying to us the illumination and blessing of his instructor SwamiBrahmananda and his grasp, Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, of Whom it may be rightlysaid: “He shining, every little thing shines.” [C:\Users\Microsoft\Documents\Calibre Library]

Sample text

This is true of everything in their life, mundane, mental, and spiritual. This is markedly true in the matter of religion. The religious expression of the wise is always, peaceful, clear, intelligent, informed, and practical–it works. The foolish, however are not so. They truly are a “troubled sea” (Isaiah 57:20) “tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind” (Ephesians 4:14) as Isaiah and Saint Paul observed. “Driven by fleshly desires,” it only follows that they prefer the pleasant to the good, for the “flesh” cannot even perceive the good to any appreciable degree; but they create a lot of illusions about it–all negative and self-assuring.

In the same way, spiritual daydreaming is fruitless. ” He is one who wishes to pass from the unreal to the Real, to no longer live in the magic of Maya, but to move onward to the Reality behind all appearance. And he does not just seek truth or think about it–he is devoted to truth. ” Stop! so I may Go “O nourisher, only seer, controller of all—O illumining Sun, fountain of life for all creatures–withhold thy light, gather together thy rays. May I behold through thy grace thy most blessed form.

Their very attitude will destroy any benefits the sadhana might bestow. They should forget about spiritual practice until they get enough good sense to rejoice in it and value it above all else. That does not mean it will not be difficult and even a struggle, sometimes painful, but it is their delusion that galls the wise, not the remedy for it. Meditation should be a kind of “deity” for us by the grace of which we can worship the Divine and our own divine self. …Because it delivers [saves], Om is called the Deliverer [Saving One: Taraka].
