The UpanishadsDecember 19, 2013
We are starting the New Year with a dive into a classic yoga text: The Upanishads. We will be discussing in Yoga Book Club on Tuesday, January 28 at 8 p.m. We are meeting at the office of Inner Balance in the Southern Dairies complex. This club is open and free to all; please join us!
Among the oldest of India’s spiritual texts, the Upanishads are records of intensive question-and-answer sessions given by illumined sages to their students. Widely featured in philosophy courses, the Upanishads have puzzled and inspired wisdom seekers from Yeats to Schopenhauer. Eknath Easwaran makes this challenging text more accessible by selecting the passages most relevant to readers seeking timeless truths today.
