SAYINGS FROM THE UPANISHADS

Compiled by Ashok Dilwali

NIYOGI BOOKS

The Upanishads are said to be divine revelations received by seers and saints. They not only shaped Hinduism but also influenced the thought of several other spiritual leanings. According to Valerie Roebuck, ‘Probably at least half the people in the world have been affected in some way or the other by the ideas of the Upanishads.
The knowledge in the Upanishads is not aimed at material gains or even intellectual satisfaction but at enabling one to become free of worldly sufferings and limitations; to attain fearlessness, and to dig up the supreme treasures of the mind. The Upanishads attempt the emancipation of the individual soul from the bondage of ignorance.
Sayings from the Upanishads attempts to help us gain true knowledge leading to infinite joy. Purification of the mind and body by clean and light food, self-control, detachment, active practice of all virtues and meditation on the Supreme Being during life and death—this is the path that the Upanishads propose to the seeker of truth.

SAYINGS FROM
THE BHAGVAD GITA

Compiled by Ashok Dilwali

NIYOGI BOOKS

In the Indian epic Mahabharata, the battlefield of Kurukshetra holds a very significant position. It was here that the mighty warrior Arjuna lost his nerve when he had to fight his own blood relations, mentors and illustrious teachers. Lord Krishna, the Supreme Godhead in the avatar of Arjuna’s charioteer understood his despondency and advised him on what he should be doing.
This sermon by Lord Krishna, known as the Bhagvad Gita is held in high esteem not only by the Hindus but people of other faith as well. It may have been delivered in the setting of a battlefield but illumined minds have found it very relevant in present times as well.
Sayings from the Bhagvad Gita combines the beauty of the celestial message with the bewitching beauty of Mother Earth.

SAYINGS FROM THE VEDAS

Compiled by Ashok Dilwali

NIYOGI BOOKS

The Vedas are considered the oldest scriptures of mankind. Their message transcends barriers of race, creed or religion.
Today the nectar of the Vedas is restricted to scholars and priests. The present generation is unaware of the knowledge contained therein. There are two reasons for this—firstly, these are in Sanskrit, a language hardly spoken today, and secondly, their composition is terse, archaic and esoteric.
In Sayings from the Vedas a humble attempt has been made to fuse the verses with Nature photographs and distill the essence of the Holy Books in as pleasant a manner as possible for the benefit of the common man. The main motivating factor is to highlight the thoughts contained in the Vedas, which will remain relevant to mankind forever
