Apart from a clear description of the five sheaths, it gives a vivid picture of the exhaustive training imparted in the educational system of the period, with instructions and advice on, how to live Vedanta in life; Taittiriya Upanisad occupies an unrivalled place in the Divine Tradition of Hinduism. The Upanisad, declares a manifesto upon the 'Hindu way of Living'. \r\n\r\nThese Commandments have a democratic Hindu touch which is the unique specialityof Hindu philosophy. "He who realises Brahman attains the Supreme Brahman - Truth, Knowledge and Infinite." \r\n\r\nIn his commentary of this Upanishad, the journalist, the logician, the scholar and the master of English Literature - Swami Chinmayananda is at His best.\r\n\r\nSwami Chinmayananda, pioneered the art of conveying sublime knowledge intricately wrapped in Sanskrit scripture through the medium of English discourse and commentary. On realising the true purpose of life he worked tirelessly and with tremendous energy for more than four decades to spread the message of Vedanta. A great writer, leader, patriot and spiritual giant: He brought about a spiritual renaissance of the Vedantic heritage to the world. A powerful orator with his own brand of wit and humour; he paints vividly the wisdom of the ages in front of us. His commentary on the Bhagavad Geeta and Upanishads are considered one of the best ever for their clarity and crisp logic.\r\n
