Embedded within the Atharva Veda, Mundaka Upanishad is one of the primary Upanishads. Its 64 verses expound the heart of Vedic philosophy, the nature of knowledge and reality, the qualities that the seeker needs to have, the proper way of living and practice, and the dangers associated with age-old spiritual misconceptions. Even though the Upanishads are timeless, their language has become dated. To approach them by oneself in our time is a challenge. Acharya Prashant provides the desperately needed guidance that we need to understand and relish these heights of religious literature.The Mundaka Upanishad is divided into three Mundakas, and this book contains the first of them. The timeless wisdom of Vedanta is translated into contemporary language and context, and the right way of interpretation and utilization is elucidated with unmatched precision. All the power lies hidden within, and this book will help the reader to find and exercise it.
