Audible Editor Reviews

Rajmani Tigunait presents these lectures entitled The Spirit of the Upanishads. His voice is mild and yet full of conviction as he traces deeply into the meaning and history of the Upanishads. In mere hour and 13 minutes, Tigunait, who is a world-renowned spiritual leader, discusses many issues including power, wealth, reverence, knowledge, and spirit. Using simple and accessible examples and metaphors to explain an ancient and infinitely complex system, Tigunait covers both how the Upanishads are related to the even more ancient Vedic texts, and how the Upanishads are relevant to spiritual seekers today.

Publisher's Summary

When knowledge was on the decline and meaningless ritualism was on the rise in ancient India, self-realized masters wrote the Upanishads to revive the authentic wisdom of the Vedas.

Pandit Rajmani Tigunait explains that the Upanishads are simply training manuals telling you how to know yourself at every level. He reveals how to attain peace and freedom by living fully in the external world, using its objects to create inner fulfillment and knowledge. Then, as you work on the process of introspection and self-discovery, you will develop the health and power to be a light to others.

Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph.D., the spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute, is the successor of Swami Rama of the Himalayas. Lecturing and teaching worldwide for more than a quarter of a century, he is a regular contributor to Yoga + Joyful Living magazine (formerly Yoga International), and the author of 14 books, including his autobiography, Touched by Fire: The Ongoing Journey of a Spiritual Seeker and the best-selling At the Eleventh Hour: The Biography of Swami Rama of the Himalayas.

Pandit Tigunait holds two doctorates: one in Sanskrit from the University of Allahabad in India, and another in Oriental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. Family tradition gave Pandit Tigunait access to a vast range of spiritual wisdom preserved in both the written and oral traditions. Before meeting his master, Pandit Tigunait studied Sanskrit, the language of the ancient scriptures of India, as well as the languages of the Buddhist, Jaina, and Zorastrian traditions. In 1976, Swami Rama ordained Pandit Tigunait into the 5,000-year-old lineage of the Himalayan masters.
