This book unfolds the definition and place of values in the teaching of Vedanta. Values such as truthfulness, non-injury, etc. have to be understood and assimilated by a person for him to become spontaneous. Twenty different values from the Chapter XIII of the Bhagavad Gita are commented upon by Swamiji which include absence of pretence, mastery over the ways of the mind, accommodation, etc.
It is not that these values are necessary only for a spiritual seeker, they are equally necessary for anyone who wants to live a life free from conflicts. That means, understanding and assimilating these values is essential for day to day living, and compromising them, due to a lack of understanding, costs us the happiness we are seeking.
About the Author:
Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati likes to call himself a traditional teacher of Vedanta, a link in a long unbroken tradition, from Adi Shankara to the present day. Rooted in the richness of tradition, yet contemporary in his thinking and approach, he continuously edits his teaching style to ensure that the vision of Vedanta is communicated with clarity. Impeccable logic, brilliant analysis, erudition, precise use of language, together with a child like humour, make him the greatest living master of Advaita Vedanta. There is none to match his ability to make the audience see as clearly as he does.
