Swami Chinmayananda, pioneered the art of conveying sublime knowledge intricately wrapped in Sanskrit scripture through the medium of English discourse and commentary. On realising the true purpose of life he worked tirelessly and with tremendous energy for more than four decades to spread the message of Vedanta. A great writer, leader, patriot and spiritual giant: He brought about a spiritual renaissance of the Vedantic heritage to the world. A powerful orator with his own brand of wit and humour; he paints vividly the wisdom of the ages in front of us. His commentary on the Bhagavad Geeta and Upanishads are considered one of the best ever for their clarity and crisp logic.
Bhagavan Ādi Śaṅkarācārya, in his utter compassion, benevolence and unique versatility, brings forth a highest teaching enshrined in this thought provoking statement with iths word meaning (vācyārtha) and its import (lakṣyārtha) and the consequent dawning of Ahaṁ Brahmasmi in the sādhaka' s mind.
Swami Chinmayananda in this commentary makes a very lucid and deep analysis of the intricate and subtle thought development of the sentence ΄That Thou Art΄. He brings out clarity into how to understand each word of the statement and arrive at the clear meaning of the Mahāvākya for us all in this beautiful dialogue between teacher and student. A great aid and blessiong to all serious sādhakas on this very subjective analysis of Self -enquiry.
