Interpreting the Upanishads ananda woodInterpreting the Upanishads by Ananda Wood translates the Upanishads and explains the content in modern terms. The original statements of the Upanishads have been interpreted and explained in many different ways, through many different schools of thought. Some schools have emphasized a religious approach to truth, through devotion to a worshipped God. Some schools have emphasized a mystical approach, through exercises of meditation that cultivate special states of experience beyond the ordinary limitations of our minds. And some schools emphasize a philosophical approach. Interpreting the Upanishads is focused on the philosophical approach. Advaita Vedanta tradition, as interpreted by Shri Atmananda, a modern advaita philosopher who lived in Kerala State, India, 1883-1959.

    The writer is still alive and this book is therefore copyright protected. This is copyright violation.
    I remind you that writers such as Ananda take much efforts and for them to see their source of income decreased by sites as this is not nice to say the least.

    Dear Menno, many books here are newer books by living authors, that does not mean we are violating copyright. This work is freely available from reliable source such as http://www.advaita.org.uk/ and I therefore assume that the author has approved the work to be freely distributed.

    Menno, why anyone would want to profit monetarily from books based on holy works is beyond me! Ananda wood has received greater profits than mere earthly rewards.

    Well Grayson, some people might want to have money to live comfortably. Should one make money only from doing ‘materialist’ work, I don’t think so.
