Description
This is the only authentic and complete edition of the Asamvedopanishad, which proclaims, “Being begins where bhaava ends” to reinforce the ancient vedaantic Nirguna/ Non-identity as both the Means and End of Self-Realization/ Enlightenment. The mind is all bhaava, fabricating endless identities, the network of Maayaa. The root identity, Ahambhaava, seals off Being/ Truth, which defies all identity. The Upanishad resurrects the sovereign Socratic Enlightenment, freeing it of the cobwebs of Plato’s mediation and its tortuous system-building agenda. Nothing short of utter Pure Intelligence, unbound by tradition, culture, custom and their contending dogmas and doctrines, can lead to True Being. The Upanishad is unsparingly critical of J. Krishnamurti and his faked-up freedom of hopping from perception to perception, moment to moment. Part II deals with parityaaga satyaagraha, the practice of vedaanta in actual life, here and now, particularly in its social dimension, clinching the sterling validity of the Socratic-Gandhian vision all through human life. ‘Gnyaana’, so spelt in this book – instead of ‘Jnana’ as spelt commonly – accords with the actual pronunciation of the word. Incidentally, the initial ‘gn’ is in tune with its Greek/Latin etymology.

Summary
This is the only authentic and complete edition of the Asamvedopanishad, which proclaims, “Being begins where bhaava ends” to reinforce the ancient vedaantic Nirguna/ Non-identity as both the Means and End of Self-Realization/ Enlightenment. This book is a compilation of extracts from letters, notes and talks, coming to pass in the course of a couple of decades and more. Item 114 of Part I [Asamvedopanishad] and Part II [Shuddhasatvopanishad] were written specifically in response to searching queries and nagging doubts of earnest seekers.

Excerpt
People around tell you that if you had spiritual freedom you could get out of your sad predicament and you seek freedom accordingly. So it honestly becomes freedom for you, not the real freedom from yourself, as Nisargadatta Maharaj so happily puts it. (100.1) Q. Whatever one’s limitations, one’s constraints, there is tremendous joy in bhakti … A. Yes ... even so, please understand to be unworldly in fact is true bhakti. There is nothing indeed godly in all the common mundane religiosity. To be lost in God is to be lost to the world. And to totally dissolve oneself (not to seek to retain a trace of the Ego!) is Nirvaana.
