Book of Wisdom: Ishopanishad

Book of Wisdom cover

The Ishopanishad is considered to be the foundation stone of Upanishadic knowledge. It is said that the answer to all the important questions of life are to be found in this short Upanishad. It is an ideal book of Vedanta philosophy. Book of Wisdom is Swami Rama's commentary on the sacred scriptures that form the basis of spiritual thought in India. Serving as both an introduction to yoga philosophy and as a careful guide for scholars, this excellent study begins with a history of the Upanishads and explains:

  • The essential questions of the nature of God
  • The origin of ignorance and illusion
  • The levels of mind and consciousness
