Nowhere in the world do we get such a complete study of the human personality in all its exhaustive features as in the Taittiriya Upanishad. 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 Upanishad occupies an unrivalled place in the Divine Tradition of Hinduism, The Upanishad, declares a manifesto upon the 'Hindu way of Living'. "Speak the Truth. Do your duty. Do not neglect the study of the scriptures. Do not cut the thread of progeny. Swerve not from truth. Deviate not from the path of good. Revere greatness". "Let your mother be a god to you; let your father be a God to you. Do only actions which are blameless. Always show reverence to the great."
In his commentary of this Upanishad, the journalist, the logician, the scholar and the master of English Literature - Swami Chinmayananda is at His best.
