The Sages of the Upanishads always prayed to God-Led us from the Unreal to the Real. The teachings of Vedanta show the path which takes man to the Real form the Unreal. Vedanta is not mere intellectual speculation, but it is a way of life. It is the flower of all Indian thought, culminating in the realization of the Supreme Truth which has no geographical nor any kind of limitations. Vedanta is for all. It is the Universal Philosophy of life which helps man to manifest his inherent divinity. It is a science of self-evolution and self-perfection.Vedanta points out the Oneness of existence and it calls upon man to realize this Oneness in this very life. Vedanta exhorts man to have a very board outlook, for it teaches that different paths of spiritual practices ultimately lead him to the same Truth which is called by different names by different religions.Swami Bhashyananda has explained different aspects of Vedanta philosophy in this book with appropriate quotations from the Upanishads and the Gita and has brought home to us the significance of this great philosophy in the context of the present situation in the world. From this standpoint this book will serve a very useful purpose by making readers aware of their duty to themselves and to the world at large.
