About the Texts:
Bhagavad Gita Chapter 15 – Purushottama Yoga
The fifteenth chapter is one of the rarest pieces of literature available in the world that directly indicates the Infinite. It may be the shortest chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, with only twenty verses, and yet it is the most succinct and a most comprehensive presentation of the entire Vedantic wisdom, so much so that Sri Krishna declares this chapter to be by itself a ‘shastra’!
Crest Jewel of Brihadaranyaka Upanishad (Purushavidha Brahmana) The Purushavidha Brahmana of the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad is a classical exposition of the famous Purusha-Sukta of the Veda. By means of this Purushavidha Brahmana, the Upanishad gives us a complete description, not only of the nature of Reality, but also of the process of creation up to the lowest limits of manifestation. This is where the famous Mahavakya ‘aham brahmasmi’ is expounded. Truly this is the crest jewel of the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad.
Svarupanusandhanam By Adi Sankara
One’s true nature is of the nature of Sat-Cit-Ananda. In the eight verses of this lucid prakarana-grantha, Sri Adi Sankaracharya brings home to the ardent seeker the method of deeply contemplating on this Truth. To engage in such a contemplation one needs the necessary preparation and clarity of the knowledge. This too he elaborates upon. The last verse promises for the seeker the ultimate Liberation if he were to follow the path and teachings expounded in these eight verses of the Svarupanusandhanam.
