This is an in-depth and revealing book, forming a set of contemplative and analytical writings communicating the profundity of the Upanishadic message with insight and clarity. It is as much for seekers of freedom and wholeness, as for thinkers on existence.
The nature of the Self forms the main subject matter, and the Upanishadic paradigm for understanding existence and happiness in the truest dimension, is critically discussed and elaborated upon. Existence is consciousness - the Self is pure consciousness - free from all limitations. Core human nature is limitation-free consciousness - timeless and all-pervasive. It is the quintessence of intelligent thought and feeling, as well as of love and creativity. Knowing oneself in this dimension is vital, in order to overcome the divisive tendencies of the mind, which put one in bondage and limitation. Spirituality is the universal human urge for wholeness and oneness, and the desire to discover the limitless being in oneself. It requires knowledge and understanding, along with dedicated application, for proper expression and fruition.
How the Upanishads deliver the truth of existence, what is the Self and its relation to God, what is the mechanism of happiness and sorrow - these are some of the crucial questions that find answers in this book. Despite the technical nature of the content, the author’s personalized and contemporary communicative style ensures that the reader remains connected at all times. It is a must-read for all wanting to know about the self and happiness.

About the Author

The author has spent the last two decades on ‘self-oriented’ Vedantic study and analysis, and now lives in Rishikesh reflecting, teaching, and writing on the Vedanta. She is the founding Chairman of the True Living Foundation India, a non-profit-making organization dedicated to the promotion of awareness and education on true living and well-being.
The author's educational background includes a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of London, UK, where the author was engaged in teaching and research in the area of blood platelets and thrombotic disease, for over a decade during the 1970s and 80s. Following some 200 or so publications in the space of eleven years of teaching and research, the author retired from her university faculty position at the age of 32, to live a different type of non-competitive and contemplative life.
