A new ‘word-for word meaning’ section has been added to the Upanisad mantra-s .

A new ‘word-for word meaning’ section has been added to the Upanisad mantra-s as well as Karika verses, to enable the sincere seekers to have an in depth study. For the benefit fo readers not knowing Devanagri, transliteration of samskrta words is also added to this section. Non –English words have been italicized. In the ‘free translation’ section, where the entire text is italicized to distinguish Samskrta words, ‘normal’fonts are used. To be true to the Samskrta text in transliteration,we have used Brahman for the first Varna instead of the commonly used word Brahmin. It need not be confused with the term Brahman of the vedantin-s.

He also says, all rooms for imagination has gone, with the true knowledge. The self illuminates its instruments, but must not mistake instruments to be itself. Janaka says he bows down to himself revenrentially and prostrates before himself - the pure consciousness which isn't destroyed even after Brahma and all blades of glass, together with universe get destroyed.

by Swami Chinmayananda.

The Mandukya Upanisad is the shortest amongst the principal Upanisads having just 12 mantra-s but presents the quintessence of the entire Upanisidik teaching. It analyses the entire range of human consciousness in the three states of waking (jagrat),dream (swapna) and dreamless sleeo (susupti) which are common to all men.It asserts unequivocally that the Absolutely Reality is non-dual (advaita) and attributes (nirguna). It has a unique method of approach to Truth.It provides symbol for meditation in the mono-syllable AUM-comprising of three sounds A,U,M, detailing it's philosphical implications.According to Muktikopanisad,it forms the epitome of all the hundred and eight Upanisad-s which have been accepted as authentic.

One of the great teachings of Vedanta beautifully and clearly commentated by Swami Chinmayananda. Anyone who wishes to study the deepest Vedanta teachings should include this Upanishad.

Excellent.

This is a great book on Mandukya Upanishad which in itself a beauty. With Pujya Svami Cinmayananda's guidance we are able to enjoy both the Upanishad and Sri. Gaudapada's Karika.

What are the various States of Consciousness? If God Exists then Who Created Him? This Upanishad Answers these 2 Primary Qs.

In ordinary life we are used to operating in 3 states of consciousness - the waking, dreaming and the deep sleep states of consciousness. But there is yet a higher 4th state of super-consciousness, which is seldom accessed by ordinary people. This Upanishad examines this 4th state of super-consciousness and demonstrates how the solutions to the most profound questions of life, can be easily answered by understanding this last state, such as: Who is God? Is there life after death? Is there a common reality that unifies both matter and consciousness? Etc.

In addition this Upanishad also solves the paradox of cause and effect, which is as follows: If we see something say a flower, then it logically follows that there must have been a cause in the form of a plant that came before. But what happens when this law of cause and effect is applied to the Universe that we live in? Then the questions take a more interesting turn: From where did the Universe come into being? Was there something (God) that created it? If God came before and created the Universe, then who created God? And if something created God, then who created that something? ...and so on.

The Mandukya Upanishad together with the Svetasvatara Upanisad, tackles this profound problem of an infinite stream of Creators of Creators, known as the paradox of cause and effect. The Svetasvatara Upanisad lays the groundwork for the problem, and the Mandukya Upanishad (with Gaudapada's Karika) finishes it. Therefore I recommend reading them in succession. Both these Upanishads are shockingly scientific and will appeal strongly to anyone with a rational disposition.

This book is an English translation of the Sanskrit verses of the Mandukya Upanishad, by Swami Chinmayananda, who founded the Chinmaya Mission. Each verse of the Upanishad is accompanied by an in-depth commentary and numerous examples for easy understanding. A pervious commenter mentioned some grammatical errors and awkward phrasing which arise mainly due to the Indian way of speaking English. However in my opinion these are minor and in no way overshadow the book's profound message.

If possible, read the Svetasvatara Upanisad by Swami Tejomayananda, before beginning this book. If not, dive right in!

This is a relatively accessible rendering of the Gaudapada Karika on the Mandukya Upanishad, and it includes a transliteration of the verses and a word-by-word translation (as well as a free-form paraphrase of each verse). This might be good place to begin if you want to understand Gaudapada's arguments without wading through the lengthy commentary and annotations in the Nikhilananda translation (though I would argue that, since Gaudapada requires a serious commitment in any case, you might as well go full bore). One thing to note is that this translation does not contain Shankara's commentary on the Gaudapada Karika, though Chinmaya in his own commentary does follow Shankara fairly closely. My complaints are that this version of the text is riddled with awkward phrasing and grammatical errors and a cloying pious tone. In addition, I believe that Chinmaya's attempt to apply Gaudapada's insights to the "meditation chair" introduces a yogic bias that doesn't accurately reflect the austere Advaita Vedanta tradition.
