Publisher's Summary

Waking Up is an attempt to answer some of the most profound questions that mankind has ever posed. The text is inspired by Vedanta teachings, a spiritual philosophy born of the Upanishads and the Vedas of ancient India. With it many have been able to harmonize the basic tenets of all the world's religions. If you have ever posed questions that your own faith seems never to have fully addressed, these recordings may hold answers.

Vedanta does not seek converts, nor does it wish anyone to abandon their religion. Rather, it seeks to deepen and broaden the faith that already exists within every truth seeker, and to expand our capacity for compassion and love. The present Vedanta movement was founded by Swami Vivekananda, chief disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, a student and devotee of the world's major religions. His legacy to mankind has been the founding of the Ramakrishna Mission with its many centers of Vedanta located throughout the world.
