Upanishads have a wealth of stories and tales which enrich us with various concepts of "Self-realization", "Brahman" or the "Supreme-Being", "Aatman" or the "Supreme-Self" and many other foundational building blocks of Santana Dharma. These stories are not only engaging but leave us with an ever-lasting resonance of thoughts.
Many of these stories are pretty popular such as the Story of Nachiketa and his dialogues with the Lord of Death or the tale of Gargi or Satyakama. However, each time you hear them will provide you with a different aspect.
So if you are tired after work, if you are down or if you are stressed out; listen to these stories and enrich yourself to the fullest.
I will try my best to bring these stories in the simplest language so that they can be enjoyed and understood.
So please subscribe, download or follow the podcast series to ensure that you don't miss out on any of these interesting stories.
Untill then...
Aum Shantih, Shantih, Shantih!!!

    Episode 27- What is AUM? Maandukya Upanishad Part 2

    Episode 27- What is AUM? Maandukya Upanishad Part 2

    The part 2 of Maandukya Upanishad deals with "AUM". It describes verses 8-12 from the Upanishad. It tells us about "AUM", how do you pronounce it? What happens when you chant "AUM" and many other secrets lying hidden in the syllable "AUM"?
    How it is connected to Viraat Purush, Hiraanyagarbha, Ishwara and Brahman? Why silence is "Turiya" the fourth quarter of Aatman? How do you perform Aum Kara Dhyaanam?
    Come with me and dive into a journey full of mysticism and unknowns.

    Episode 24- What are the paths of liberation? A story of Shri Ramchandra and Hanuman Chapter 1 - From Muktika Upnishad

    Episode 24- What are the paths of liberation? A story of Shri Ramchandra and Hanuman Chapter 1 - From Muktika Upnishad

    Muktika Upanishad is the last of the 108 Upanishads which is derived from Shukla Yajur Veda. I have extracted this story from this upanishad which presents a dialogue between Lord Shree Ramchandra and Lord Hanuman, where in Hanuman asks Lord Ram about the vedanta, upanishads and paths of salvation. This episode features adhyaya 1 or chapter 1 from the Upanishad.

    Do you know what are the 108 Upanishads? How they are categorised? What are the different shanti mantras of each category of Upanishad? What are the different paths of liberation? What is "Kaivalya", the highest state of emancipation? To know more, please listen to this episode.

    Episode 23 - Satyameva Jayate - Mundaka Upanishad

    Episode 23 - Satyameva Jayate - Mundaka Upanishad

    Satyameva Jayate Na-anrtam - 
    satyena panthaa vitato devayaanah |
    Yen-aakramanty-rsayo hyaapta-kaamaa - 
    Yatr tat satyasya paramam nidhaanam ||

    Which means - Truth alone triumphs not untruth. By truth is laid out the divine path, which the seers who are free from desires, reach to the supreme abode of truth”.

    This is story from Mundaka Upanishad and describes a dialogue between Sage Angiras and his student Shaunaka. What are the two types of knowledge? Which one is the lower and which one is the higher? What is Satyam or Truth? Can Aatman and Brahman reside in the same body?

    Many questions are answered in this story. So hold on tight and enjoy the story from which our national motto was taken.
