Tonnes of volumes are written about vendanta. This book present the idea of Vendanta in very crisp language which is easy to understand. I have tried to read other books on Vendanta philosophy but found it too complicated. It is time to revisit those works with the foundation laid out by Vendanta A simple introduction.

I am unfamiliar with the Vedanta Philosophy, but wanted to learn more about it after visiting the Vedanta Temple in Santa Barbara, California. I felt this short book offered a wonderful introduction the Vedanta Philosophy.

A simple and crisp introduction to the Vedanta philosophy. Just the right book to get you started (and decide if this is for you!). No detailed analysis or explanations. It simply puts the essence as-is. Avoid if you already know about Vedanta and/or have read Swami Viveknanda's works. I was aware of most of the things. But the book helped aligning it all together in a short volume and prepare for some more serious reading on the subject! Good book overall.

Hey, this religion doesn't sound too bad! Of course the last book on religion I read was on Scientology...
