It is declared in the Mandukya Upanishad that if one studies and practices its teachings, one acquires the knowledge to attain enlightenment. This volume is written for those students who actually want to practice the method according to this Upanishad....The Mandukya provides a comprehensive map for the inward journey that shows the individual the way from the the mundane to the eternal. It then describes this state, the Ultimate Reality, the goal of human existence.
"When one understands the teachings of the Upanishads, then one realizes that life itself is a sort of worship that can shine on the alter of infinity...This can be done when people determine to enlighten themselves, and enlightenment is possible here and now without the help of the word God." —from Chapter, 1 "Awakening"
