The Eternal Wisdom of the Sages of India is stored up in the Upanishads. These Upanishads have been a source of great inspiration to the great philosophers, Acharyas and seekers of Truth, not only in India, but all over the world. Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj has given not only his illuminating commentary on the Principal Upanishads, but also the highly interesting "Upanishad Drama," "Dialogues from the Upanishads," "Upanishads for Busy People" and "Ten Upanishads." This "Essence" is a valuable addition to the others.
