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

Marks of Spiritual Progress CD

SVB.Marks of Spiritual Progress CDThis disk is a compilation of the 6 CDs that make up the “Marks of Spiritual Progress” lecture series given by Swami Veda Bharati. Also, there are three supplemental lectures given on the same subject. There are TWO VERSIONS of the first lecture, because the audio quality is poor, and was difficult to improve. The first version has been edited to remove extra sounds and long gaps. The second version has less editing, but a different style of sound enhancement in case you find it easier to hear. Transcripts of the main lectures, as well as a SUMMARY document can also be found on the disk. Additionally, we have included 14 additional transcripts of helpful lectures. A companion series CD “Yoga in Daily Life” is also recommended.

This is an MP3 CD. It requires a CD player that will play MP3 disks. It can also be played on your computer.
