The Upanishads form a part of the Vedas, India’s most ancient spiritual scriptures. The word Upanishad itself denotes “sitting close to the teacher” as well as “the study and practice of innate truth,” said Baba. As a body of philosophy, these scriptures are difficult and sometimes elusive. In this collection of articles compiled in 1968, Sathya Sai Baba explains the teachings of the ten most prominent Upanishads. Swami covers a range of topics with practical relevance to the aspirtant, including non-dualism, meditation on the One, detachment, discrimination, and the attainment of the ultimate reality. This is a valuable precursor to reading the Upanishads.
