It's hard to imagine a better introduction to Vedanta. Based on the Upanishads, this ancient spiritual philosophy has close ties to other Indian disciplines, like yoga. Yogeshananda explains the basic tenets of Vedanta in simple language, illustrating his points with references to science, literature, and religion. Charlton Griffin is the perfect choice to narrate these 10 brief chapters. He's comfortable with Sanskrit terms and Indian names, and his delivery is uniformly clear and intelligent. Even more importantly, Griffin seems not only to understand the spiritual concepts explained, but the reasoning behind them, and the challenges they offer listeners. This emerges in masterful pacing, and the wry inflection of Yogeshananda's jokes. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
