Upanishads are best understood when you have a good knowledge of Vedic ritual terminology and the Vedic imagery hidden in the verses. Your understanding improves greatly if you pay deep attention to the verses. The Upanishads are mostly fragments of knowledge gleaned from various sources overtime and compiled into their current format. Therefore you do not find much coherence or continuity of thought.

You have a truth inside you. That truth you have to awaken. That truth must speak to you. That truth is your true guru. If you do not wake up that truth, the best of the best gurus cannot help you. That truth alone is your savior. Until you find that you will move in circles.

Now, what is your natural state of mind? Have you ever tried to observe it. Have you ever tried to think about it. We are usually conditioned to believe that life is tough and life is full of suffering. We therefore think life is largely a struggle and suffering is an inherent and integral aspect of life.

Our seers noticed this hidden design in the component realities of Nature. They observed both the unity and diversity in the manifestation of the world. They realized that the creation of God was built on the principle of cooperation and service and the purpose of each component of creation and each entity of creation was to support creation by doing its part.

If peace is all you want, then you will have it. Peace will come to you and become your essential nature only when you make it the foundation of your life, when you plan and build your life around a center of peace.  It begins with the thinking, "I may have everything in my life, I may pursue whatever I want in life, but for me peace is before all and peace is foundational and the most important."

Citta is loosely translated as the  mind.  However, citta is not just mind alone...Citta is not confined to the mind alone. It is rather the whole mind and body awareness pervading the mind, the ego, the intelligence, the senses, the organs of action, the nervous system, and various types of breathes. Citta is a kind of energy field, made up of the three gunas, namely, sattva, rajas and tamas...

I think for our personal growth and development, we need to adapt a multipronged approach to learning. We need to use various perspectives or approaches to cultivate an all-round knowledge and stretch our minds in every possible direction to assimilate whatever knowledge we can gather in the course of our lives. We need to focus on at least five areas, which I would call the five Darshanas of modern life.

Life is a combination of these three processes: random events, mechanical processes and intelligent actions. Probably the random events are also mechanical processes; but at this stage we do not have the knowledge to know as such. We have to understand how these three processes govern our lives and how we may use intelligence to interfere with random and mechanical events. Intelligent actions are responsible for our karma.

There are so many hurdles to our learning and knowing that our knowledge is never free from errors and limitations. Yet millions of us take our knowledge for granted and keep insisting that we are right. We will be better off if we cultivate humility and pay more serious attention to the way we learn things and make use of them in our day to day lives.
