By Swami Vivekananda, 64 Pages, Paperback.
Swami Vivekananda quoted from this Upanishad and explained its ideas in several of his lectures, class-talks, and conversations. All this material has been brought together for the first time.
"The Mandukya Upanishad", which occurs in the Atharva Veda, consists of 64 mantras divided into three chapters, each of which is subdivided into two cantos. Swami Vivekananda has not commented on every verse of the Upanishad. Nor has he given a literal and full translation of most of the verses. His priorities are clear: to go to the heart of the matter, to focus on the essentials, and to evolve practical methods from abstract principles. That is what makes this compilation a treasure trove of original ideas and masterly insights which are helpful towards spiritual practice.
