One of the easiest most plain-spoken guides to Vedanta I've seen. The writer does not claim any special guruhood for himself. Just a guy who obviously loves Vedanta. He's smart and substantially educated and knowledgeable about Vedanta, yes, but doesn't make the subject seem too difficult for the average interested reader.

Why would anyone even care about what Vedanta is or isn't? Well, most people probably do not care and never will. But that leaves those who really want to know-- what is truth? who am I? does it matter? are there benefits? why all this vast universe? and so on. Some are naturally drawn to 'truth seeking' and Vedanta came into being over many centuries as some really great truth seekers made discoveries and passed them on to others. In other words an ancient tradition developed. The primary focus is on-- Who am I? You are not your name, not the one you see in the mirror, and definitely you are not the stories you tell about yourself. Who has the name? Who sees self and other? Who tells stories. Who is the one always observing all this but staying pretty well always hidden? Who asks who?

No matter what we think or say or do, there is always the hidden One, prior to thought, seeing, and saying. THAT says Vedanta is the Self, the Who you really are. Fun fact: that same Self that you are is everyone else too, not just you. We all say, I. Vedanta is the system, the path, the 'eternal way' of finally uncovering your secret identity, solving the mystery, thereby setting one finally truly free. So yes, it is worth learning about Vedanta and it need not be some 30 year trek through India or Tibet with a begging bowl following a self-proclaimed Guru who expects your full obedience and your service of his needs. Stay right where you are!!! But read some books, read this book, and you can begin very soon to tread the true path of Vedantic wisdom. More and more with practice over time you become more acquainted with the Self and that is the way to real knowledge and real freedom.

I read this book a couple of years ago and found it to be an exceptional treatment of the ancient teachings of Vedanta. It is written in a very clear voice which make the teachings very accessible to people of our time. If you're unfamiliar with these ancient teachings and would like to know more, this is a great place to start.
