Vedanta: An Invaluable Guide to Happy and Successful Life

T.N. Achyuta Rao (Editor)
Synopsis This is the first ever exposition of the ancient spiritual science in the light of the research findings in modern material and biological sciences. The subject matter, here, ranges from the Veda and Vedic literature like the Upanishads, Brahma Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, the Puranas, and the great epics-Ramayana and Mahabharata to Mahaveera and the Buddha. It contains the teachings of the Great Acharyas and deals with the problems of modern day life. It holds the key to the problems of misery, poverty, and drudgery of modern life and shows the path to happiness and success in life. It is the spiritual heritage of India. Normally, philosophy is treated with contempt by modern youth since they think it is unproductive and of no consequence in immediate material progress. But, Vedanta holds the clue to material prosperity; it shows the ways and means of creating wealth. It is a spiritual science as well as material science. It includes dharma, artha, kaama and moksha, i.e., horizontal as well as vertical development; rather it is a guide to progressive evolutionary development. It brings about an all-round personality. Real knowledge and happiness comes from the study of the sacred scriptures. It is not possible to get all the ancient scriptures and the modern research works in one place. Even when experts present the commentaries on the Veda and Upanishads, they lack modern scientific perspective; it is the same with the scientists. Most of the scientists lack spiritual perspective and the study remains inconclusive. "Vedanta"-'knowledge supreme' is painstaking research work carried over a decade since 1990s.
