The expression ‘upadesha’ means teaching and ‘sara’ implies essence. The title, thus, means the ‘essence of the teaching’ (of Vedanta). This lucid composition by Sri Ramana Maharshi in thirty profound verses expounds the crux of the four paths to Realisation – karma-yoga, bhakti-yoga, ashtanga-yoga and jnana-yoga.
Upadesa Sara is presented as a teaching of Lord Siva addressed to the yogins blindly following the path of purva-mimamsa. These teachings are relevant to every seeker for gaining clarity on the ultimate Goal of Realisaion and the path to be walked.
