Lights on Advaita – Selected Teachings of V. Subrahmanya Iyer is a collection of short teachings on Advaita written in a nearly poetic style. The book is divided into 50 chapters such as the Doctrine of non-causality, The illusion of the world experience, The illusion of the ego-experience and The illusion of space, time externality. From the book:

“The chief purpose of analyzing the external world is to discover that it is part of
the ultimate reality and thus to enable us to carry on with activity from the highest
possible viewpoint; where people fail to make this analysis, as with so many
religious-minded seekers, they fail to do anything worthwhile in the material world. To
effect this discrimination, we need an intelligence much sharper than the average,
whereas too much religion and not a little mysticism drugs this intelligence. The highest
state is to be the “All”–not to shut your eyes to the world and to go off into the deep
sleep of trance. Vedanta does not teach aversion to existence, as do the ascetics and yogis; on the
contrary we teach that you should go on living in the world, acting, working, etc. that you
should accept life.”
