Prashnopanishad: Six Disciples - Six Questions One Truth

Swami Chinmayananda (Author)

I am extremely glad to note that the Madurai public has so well reacted to the 41 days' Upanisad jnana-yajna, the fifth of its kind that I have been deputed to serve. The discourses that were heard at the Madurai yajnasala during these 41 days (from 14 February to 26 March 1954) are being compiled here into one solid volume to serve two kinds of people - those who have not been able to attend the yajna and those who attended it. To the former this will be a complete textbook, and to the latter it will serve as notes helping to refresh their memory of what they heard while attending the yajna. I know that the yajna committee owes its thanks to thousands of people for their cooperation and divine enthusiasm, but for which the yajna would not have been such an unprecedented success as it was in Madurai. But all the same, mainly the committee should remember in gratitude the Lord Himself who gave it the chance to conduct this yajna, since it is he who guides us in all our endeavours and doles out real success of all our consistent and persistent efforts. . I must congratulate especially the President of the committee, Sri P. A. C. Ramaswamy Raja of Rajapalayam, for his diligent and faithful editing of this textbook. I feel confident that all the salient points that were discussed in the yajnasala have been faithfully reported in these pages. . Good or bad, success or failure, complete or incomplete, I consider no work as mine and as such I feel no hesitation  in placing this volume as a flower of love and homage at the feet of our reviving Hinduism. Renascent Hinduism is rising. She has decided to work out her queenly vision of serving humanity all round the globe. The general enthusiasm with which the faithful are now flocking to the study of the Upanisad in such continuous discussion groups clearly reveals that the rsis have started their unseen work of guiding their exhausted children back to their philosophical wealth and spiritual nourishment. The earlier our readers complete their study of these scriptures and reinforce their intellectual knowledge with consistent and intelligent practice, the easier would be the work of our 'Eternal Mother', the Sruti. If you are not enrolling yourself in the army of Hindu missionaries as a member, you will soon be finding yourself a foreigner in your own native land! . Move with the times and know the timeless 'Time'. My grateful and humble regards to all workers and sincere volunteers who have contributed their work to make the yajna such a glorious success, especially, I owe my gratitude to Sri Gopalakrishna Pillai, the secretary of the committee, who had been a flawless sevaka of Mother Sruti. .
