Easwaran explains that the Indian scriptures express one supreme, eternal law: if we live for others, in complete harmony with all life, in our homes, at work, and in our communities, we will find abiding happiness and fulfilment. To erase all selfishness from our hearts requires more courage and endurance, Easwaran says, than climbing the Himalayas - and he conveys vividly the joy and exhilaration of the spiritual life.
Meditation and the repetition of the mantram (or mantra) are essential for those who choose to take on these challenges, and Easwaran refers to these disciplines frequently. Anyone who is new to these spiritual practices might find it helpful to listen first to Easwaran's talk Meditation.

The content is enlightening. The presentation is unassuming. The audio quality is poor but has a nostalgic old vinyl record feel to it. That is for those who remember vinyl records and eight tracks.
Overall very enjoyable.
I found Easwaran's presentation of the Upanishads easy to follow and understand. This has helped me greatly with the course that I am doing.
The connection with real life events.
His ease of presentation.
Yes and no. Yes because I couldn't wait to get to the end. No because I needed time to digest each section.
Highly recommended if you want to know more about the Upanishads
