Everyone is suffering – the rich, the poor, the young and the old. Everything in the world is perishing. There is nothing permanent. All pleasures are pithless and pain-ridden. Man is proud of his possessions and runs day and night after fleeting objects. If one has keenly observed all these, the following questions must naturally crop in the mind:
- Who am I?
- What is the nature of the world?
- What is the purpose of human existence?
Yoga Vasishtha, a great treasure of knowledge and stories, gives us the solutions to all these questions.
This text covers almost the entire philosophical thought of the Hindu Culture.
Yoga Vasishtha is considered as one of the classics of Vedanta philosophy. Sincere students of Vedanta never fail to have a deep study of this text.
The original Yoga Vasishtha has 32,000 verses by Sage Valmiki, the author of Ramayana.
Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda has brought out the essence of the teaching of Sage Vasishtha to Shri Rama in only 86 verses spread over seven chapters.
Though Yoga Vasishtha is primarily meant for highly advanced seekers, Pujya Guruji’s commentary is so clear and to the point that even a novice in the path of spirituality can dive through it on his own.
