Vedanta is the culmination of The Vedas. It is entering into the study of Brahman. It is the Science which raises man above the plane of worldliness. It is the rational method of meditating on the Supreme Absolute, the Eternal, the Infinite. Vedanta is the culmination of human experience and is the end of the faculty of thinking. It is the greatest and the highest knowledge. This wisdom was revealed to the ancient sages.
In order to practice Sadhana for the attainment of absolute freedom, you should know in the beginning itself its technique and method. You should know the nature of bondage, the cause of bondage and the way of getting rid of bondage. You have to make a searching study of life and know its mysteries.

The vast majority of persons have no time to go through the different books on Vedanta. A book of this kind will prove to be a constant companion to them, a vedanta mecum, a handbook or manual for ready reference.
