Camp Text – Upadeśa-sāra
‘Upadeśa’ means teaching and ‘sāra’ implies essence. The title, thus, means the essence of the teaching (of Vedānta). The crux of the four paths to Realisation, karma-yoga, bhakti-yoga, aṣṭāṅga-yoga and jñāna-yoga, is expounded upon by Sri Ramana Maharshi in thirty profound verses.
Upadeśa-sāra, addressed to yogins blindly following the path of pūrva-mīmāṁsā, is a an essential prakaraṇa-grantha to be studied by a student of Vedānta. The unique direct method advised by Sri Ramana Maharshi is the highlight of the text.
Swami Advayananda, an accomplished teacher of Vedanta, with many Gita and Upanishad discourse series to his credit, has also authored several books such as the Holy Gita Ready Reference, Advanced Vedanta Course, a series of research articles titled ‘Vedanta Unveiled’, to name a few. He has also edited several Vedantic works in English and Sanskrit such as the Foundation Vedanta Course, Bhagavad-gita Course, Ishvara-darshanam and Suktisudha. He has overseen and co-redacted the scholarly publication of the 2-volume work on the Brahmasutra-catussutri. He has also contributed to the research and coordination of the Upanishad Ganga, a television series depicting the wisdom of the Upanishads, which was first telecast on the Doordarshan Channel.
