Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

The Upanishads are early philosophical texts of the Hindu religion. The Upanishads represent the loftiest heights of ancient Indo-Aryan thought and culture and are regarded as direct revelations of God. Because these teachings were usually given in the stillness of some distant retreat, where the noises of the world could not disturb the tranquillity of the contemplative life, they are known also as Aranyakas, Forest Books. This version is a translation of Swami Paramananda. Paramananda was an important Swami, mystic, poet, and an innovator in spiritual community living. Wilder Publications is a green publisher. All of our books are printed to order. This reduces waste and helps us keep prices low while greatly reducing our impact on the environment.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A quick primer on Upanishad 7 de abril de 2014
Por Shekar Hariharan - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Very succinct and intuitive summary of Upanishads. Serves more as an appetizer than the main course but for sure raises enough hunger in the form of questions in its readers head that would tempt to explore further on this classic scripture...

4.0 de 5 estrelas Good Introduction 28 de março de 2015
Por Russ Heitz - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This is a good introduction to one of the holy books of the Hindu religion. The concepts are somewhat "foreign" to those who have grown up with Judeo-Christian traditions but the language used to explain and illustrate the concepts is clear and concise. For those interested in the Hindu religion, this is a good place to start.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A Book of Universal Truth 25 de junho de 2017
Por David Timothy Panagotis - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This book speaks of universal truths and morals. Reading what is inside and applying itself to one's inner self proves, without a doubt, that religious belief is common to all mankind in whatever form it is portrayed in. Reading the Upanishads would cause many priests and, more specifically, "preachers", to realize that these truths are self-evident for all, and might open their eyes to the fact that other nations, cultures, and peoples are also peace and truth seeking besides our own.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Not a paraphrase but every verse of 3 popular Upanishads 6 de janeiro de 2015
Por Meow Tomcat - Publicada na Amazon.com
Swami Paramananda (1884- 1940) was one of the founders of the Vedanta Society of Boston. When an American friend could not understand the Upanishads, Swami Paramananda organized classes and the result was a book published in 1919 covering the Isa Upanishad, Katha Upanishad and Kena Upanishad. The Upanishads, of course, are inherently philosophical and highly condensed. The translator has to balance readability versus the profundity of the original Sanskrit. Swami Paramananda favours poetry and rhythm over the intricacies of detail. Let's compare Paramananda's poetic version versus Gambhirananda's accurate translation of the Katha Upanishad, Part 1, Canto 2, Verse 1 and 2.

(1) Paramananda version: "Yama said: The good is one thing and the pleasant another. These two, having different ends, bind a man. It is well with him who chooses the good. He who chooses the pleasant misses the true end. The good and the pleasant approach man; the wise prefers the good to the pleasant, but the foolish man chooses the pleasant through love of bodily pleasure." No commentary, no Sanskrit.

(2) Gambhirananda version: "The preferable is different indeed; and so, indeed, is the pleasurable different. These two, serving divergent purposes, (as they do), bind men. Good befalls him who accepts the preferable among these two. He who selects the pleasurable falls from the true end. The preferable and the pleasurable approach mankind. The man of intelligence, having considered them, separates the two. The intelligent one selects the electable in preference to the delectable; the non-intelligent one selects the delectable for the sake of growth and protection (of the body etc.). Two commentaries 336 words and 228 words. Verses also in Sanskrit.

The Gambhirananda version (Eight Upanisads, volume 1, Advaita Ashrama, Calcutta) is painstakingly faithful to the original Sanskrit, with technical commentary after every verse. Swami Paramananda favours poetry and readability with some commentary and is therefore more suitable for those seeking an introduction to the Upanishads. All of Swami Paramananda's books lean towards poetry and simplicity and have few technical terms.

1.0 de 5 estrelas Poorly formatted; don't bother. 12 de agosto de 2015
Por Jarin Jove - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
The books contents were not formatted properly and it gets hard to read the theological and philosophical teachings when paragraph upon paragraph of notes are in-between them with no distinguishable characteristics to differentiate them; to the point where the book loses coherence.
