Why I am in this World
- +

The book 'Why I Am In This World' is a practical presentation of Isha Upanishad to bring home the purpose of life.

All verses (18) have been firstly presented in the factual form. Then comments are offered so that difficult verses of the Upanishad can be understood by the busy reader of the day.

Anecdotes, illustrations and dialogues have been given in the book so that the abstract knowledge contained in the Isha Upanishad about God, life and the World is clarified so as to reach to every person. However, all these illustrations have been taken from other Upanishads so as not to derail the spiritual subject from the highest level of the Indian seers. It is hoped that the book will help the people to make their life better and this World, a better place to live.

The Upanishads are great treasure of India. The Upanishads are of the profound importance for the future. They speak of metaphysical varieties for all races and all times. The Upanishads are not so popular as epics like the Mahabharata and the Ramayana as these contain abstract knowledge of Self, Super self or God and the World. Now-a-days, there is interestingly more inquisitiveness to peep into the ancient culture of India among the modern Indian generation as these have been time and again ratified and acclaimed by the western world. According to the German philosopher Schopenhauer, the Upanishads are destined sooner or later to become the faith of the people.



Two questions have been appealing to the individual 'Who am I? And 'Why have I come in this World?". Answers to these questions being raised for centuries will provide the purpose of life. These two questions are basically religious and philosophical. I therefore, researched the more practical question 'Why am I in this World?'. The book is entitled accordingly' - Why I am in this World.' I am incompetent to answer the question 'Why am I in this World'? I therefore, took refuge in the Upanishads to find this answer. The answer from all the Upanishads will be very vivid and voluminous. I therefore, concentrated to find out the answer from the Isha Upanishad which is very short and the first Upanishad as per Shankaracharya commentary.
