Upanisadas: The Real Truth

D.D. Aggarwal (Author)
Synopsis The theme of various Upanishadas is derived from Vedas in the form of discussion amongst various rishis to make it more convincing and intelligible to the general public on the subject leading to emancipation. There is a way of reaching the almighty or attaining salvation through Bhakti’ as in Ramayana, Mahabharata, etc., but our earlier granthas like Vedas and Upanishadas speak of reaching Him by ‘Gyan’ For this purpose, the necessary requirements are ‘Pranayam’ for purifying the body system; restrain to get rid of all worldly involvements/pleasures/attraotions; concentration to get rid of all sins and make an effort to reach Him; then meditation to reach and get absorbed in Him and then is the final stage of ‘Moksha’. There is also a way named ‘Sankhya’, in which one attains salvation by adopting Satoguna’ and absolving oneself of ‘Rajo’ and ‘Tamo’gunas and still another is through ‘Yoga’ in which through the system of ‘Samadhi’ etc., one reaches Him. The Upanishadas propound ‘Nirguna Bhakti’ but one can possibly reach ‘Nirguna Bhakti’ but one can possibly reach ‘Nirguna Bhakti’ through ‘Saguna’ form first. All this discussion in various important Upanishadas has been brought in this book Upanishadas: The Real Truth, condensed in a narrative form, the way of getting absorbed in Him, the ultimate aim of human beings, in a simple and intelligible language citing examples, where necessary, to make it interesting for the reader. The purpose of writing this book shall be achieved even if the reading of this book moulds the faculties of mankind to some extent in that direction.
