The Wisdom of Vasistha

 
Raghunandan (Author)
Synopsis

Yogavasistha or Yogavasisttha Maharamayana has been a guidebook to earnest Sadhakas, all over the country. The popularity of this book appears to be due to the fact that it is a happy combination of terse Upanisadic thought presented in the story form. A scripture becomes relevant, when it presents the truths of the Upanisads, using a common man’s language with illustrative stories, helps a beginner as well as an advanced seeker. It is believed by some that Sage Valmiki wrote the Ramayana for the purification of mind and to create a mood of seeking in the society. It is well known that the story of Sri Rama gives an exemplary ethical and moral behaviour in an individual, and a glimpse into an ideal culture, through the description of Ayodhya. For only on a strong ethical and moral foundation one can hope to build the super-structure of spirituality. Attempt has been made to cover all the stories in six Prakaranas. This book is a study by a seeker, and an attempt to present contained in the book, to fellow seekers who are not very familiar with Sanskrit. It is essentially meant for inspiring the seekers to take up the study of the original text, which is a mine of practical wisdom. The essays contained herein, are glimpses into the meditations on the golden verses and their connection and relevance in our day-to-day life. Consequently, the interpretation and the perspective is not really meant for scholastic pursuits.

He decided to plunge into a life. He decided to plunge into a life devoted to spirituality, after working in a Paper Industry in Tamil Nadu for a couple of years. During this period he had the good fortune to visit the banks of the Narmada and meet the experienced wise and seekers, who clarified many of his fundamental doubts. The experience finally made him join Vivekandanda Kendra – a spiritually oriented service mission in 1976. He worked as its Zonal Organiser, Organising Secretary and Joint General Secretary. He got married to Vasantha, in 1981. Presently, both of them are working for the Ramarpan Education Society, which is running a Senior Secondary School at Hurda in Rajasthan.
