‘Insights into Vedanta’ is an English translation of Tattwabodha with a running commentary, based on Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda’s teachings. Sri Sankaracharya is the putative author of this work. The original Tattvabodha in Sanskrit is apparently a simple text, and the purpose of the author is to acquaint the lay reader with Advaita. But the text is profound. It also anticipates discussion and deep thought.
The present book has the text in Devanagari and transliteration in English and also word for word for meaning in English. Even those with a nodding acquaintance with Sanskrit can understand the text correctly. This is a good book for the one trying to understand Advaita Vedanta.
