Description

Upadesa Sara - the essence of all teaching - is one of the most popular Vendatic texts. It explains the paths of Action (Karma Yoga), Yoga (Astanga Yoga) and Knowledge (Jnana Yoga) and how they lead to the final goal of Self Knowledge. The great sage, Bhagvan Ramana Maharishi presents the subject in a simple and beautiful way.

Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda's commentary further simplifies the text and brings out its essence in an appealing way.

Upadesa Sara is a short text but it contains the highest Knowledge. It propounds the four main prevalent paths to the Truth. They are Karma Yoga (Path of Action), Bhakti Yoga (Path of Devotion), Astanga Yoga (Path of Yoga) and Jnana Yoga (Path of Knowledge). The first three verses explain the essence of the Path of Action.

Karma Yoga is not doing a good lot of action or doing ‘good acts’. It is an attitude of the mind while performing actions and receiving results. This attitude is marked by performance of actions as an offering to the Lord and receiving the results as his gift. The actions are therefore done without ego and ego-centric desires, with dedication and a desire to please the Lord.
