Maitreyi Brahmana

Maitreyi Brahmana Samvad is a section found in the Brihadaranyaka upanishad. Named after Maitreyi, the wife of Sage Yajnavalkya, it contains sublime instructions on discovering the secret to immortality. Here we have the ideal couple, a husband-preceptor and a wife-disciple, both supremely qualified as teacher and student, having a dialogue on the means to gain ‘Amrutatvam’ or Immortality which constitutes the crux of this section. Yajnavalkya, the great sage, having fulfilled the responsibilities of a householder, wishes to live the life of a forest recluse. Before leaving he informs his wives of having created adequate provisions for them to live a good life. Maitreyi, who was predisposed towards spiritual matters,now wishes to know if all this wealth can bring her immortality. For any queries, please contact the author, Smt. Vidya Iyer, Mumbai, on vidyaiyer17@gmail.com.
