Dramatic Version of Seven Major Upanishads

Rama Venkataraman (Author)
Synopsis The Upanisads reveal the nature of true vidya: it is the knowledge which leads to the understanding of Brahman which alone is the Reality in the world of appearances. The dramas by Shri Mani Iyer based on the Upanisads render the meaning of the Upanisads in an interesting and captivating manner so that a wider audience can gain from the Upanisadic insight.

This book presents an English translation of Mani Iyer's seven Upanisadic dramas, originally in Tamil, and includes English transliteration of the original Sanskrit verses. The dramas pertain to seven of the major Upanisads: Kena, Isvasya, Prasna, Mundaka, Mandukya, Taittiriya and Katha. With reference to each drama, there is an introduction that reveals the major questions raised by the Upanisad, the manner in which the play proceeds, the nature of the story, its characters, and the conclusion of the play. The translation is simple to follow and possesses a rare clarity.

Because of the simple language and the clear meanings of the Upanisadic verses, this book will be valuable to readers in general, students in particular, and to those interested in knowing what our Upanisads contain and intend to convey.
