Wisdom of The Ancient Sages: Mundaka Upanishad

Swami Rama (Author)

In Wisdom of the Ancient Sages, Swami Rama shares with the modern reader the powerful and inspiring teachings of one of the world’s greatest spiritual texts-the Mundaka Upanishad. This beautiful translation and commentary affirms the core, essential nature of the human beings as complete, peaceful, creative and transcendent and describes the process by which we can experience our inner nature. Its message will assist anyone who seeks to walk the path of personal and spiritual development.

“The Upanishadic teachings are like flowers gathered from the garden of the limitless. The seers, the teachers of the Upanishads, strung a thread through these flowers, so that each teaching became a garland. Today’s world is passing through a serious crisis: stress, unhappiness, and disease are increasing. Mankind has forgotten the ancient landmark of its noble history. I pray that modern men and women become aware that life has two aspects-within and without. Without constructing this bridge of understanding-between within and without, between ancient and modern-real happiness, peace, and bliss are unattainable.”

About the author

Swami Rama

Yogi, scientist, philosopher, humanitarian, and mystic poet, Swami Rama is the founder and spiritual head of the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga science and philosophy, with its headquarters in honesdale, Pennsylvania, and therapy and educational centers throughout the world. He was born in a Himalayan valley of Uttar Pradesh. India, in 1925 and was initiated and anointed in early childhood by a great sage of the Himalayas. He studied with many adepts, and then traveled to Tibet to study with his grandmaster. From 1949 to 1952 he held the prestige and dignity of Shankaracharya (spiritual leader) in Karvirpitham in the South of India. He then returned to the Himalayas to intensify his meditative practices in the cave monasteries and to establish an ashram in Rishikesh. Later he continued his investigation of Western psychology and philosophy at several European universities, and he taught in Japan before coming to the United States in 1969. The following year he served as a consultant to the Voluntary Controls project of the Research Development of the Menninger foundation. There he demonstrated, under laboratory conditions, precise control over his autonomic nervous system and brain. The findings of that research increased the scientific community's understanding of the human ability to control autonomic functioning and to attain previously unrecognized levels of consciousness. Shortly thereafter, Swami Rama founded the Himalayan Institute as a means to synthesize the ancient teaching of the East with the modern approaches of the West. He has played a major role in bringing the insights of yoga psychology and philosophy to the attention to the physicians and psychologists of the West. He continues to teach students around the world while intensifying his writing and meditative practices. He is the author of many books and currently spends most of his time in the mountains of Northern India and in Pennsylvania. U.S.A.
