Reflections On Sacred Teachings (Volume 4)
Sri Isopanisad is an ancient work. It is counted as the first of the 108 Upanisads, and is part of the Yajur Veda-among those literatures which are accepted by followers of the Vedic tradition to have come from God Himself at the time of creation. As such it is, one could say, about as foundational a text as one could hope to find, anywhere, dealing with the most primeval and fundamental concepts of reality as we know it, presented in a context that is both timeless, in that it comes from the person who put time into motion, and simultaneously eternal.
Into this complex ocean of truth dives our commentator, Bhakti Tirtha Swami, whose background is eminently suitable for dealing with the subject matter of Sri Isopanisad. With exacting integrity he takes us through some of the most essential basic elements of transcendence and gives us the keys to unlock their secrets and put them to work for us.
“One who always sees all living entities as spiritual sparks, in quality one with the Lord, becomes a true knower of things. What, then, can be illusion or anxiety for him?” – Excerpt from Sri Isopanisad
