Description

Product Description

The Sermon on the Mount represents the essence of both Christ''s teachings and the teachings of Vedanta. Christ said, Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. The kingdom of God is within. Be ye perfect.... Theologians are apt to explain away these teachings, but we believe Christ meant exactly what he said. Read in this book how Vedanta goes to the heart of Christ''s teachings.

Review

By drawing [on] the spiritual wisdom of the sermon [on the mount] using Vedantic tools, he teaches Christians how they can relate to Hinduism without conflict. The brief introduction traces through the origin of the affinity of the Ramakrishna Order to the teachings of Christ and the author finds the basis in the fact that like Krishna and Buddha, Christ did not teach a mere ethical gospel, but an uncompromising spiritual one. --Studies in Formative Spirituality

Swami Prabhavananda acquired a deep understanding of both the Bible and the western approach to religion. He had the highest respect for Jesus as a spiritual teacher and often used his words to elaborate and exemplify the themes he was explaining. This commentary is a thorough analysis of several chapters from Matthew from a principally Hindu viewpoint, with frequent references to Buddhism. Lucid and inspiring, it provides many valuable insights for daily living and the spiritual quest, as well as understanding of key issues in comparative religious studies. --Paul Rooke, International Headquarters of the Theosophical Society

This book is of everlasting and transcendental worth... The author has drawn upon profusely from the Upanishads, the Puranas and Patanjali Yoga Sutras, and dwelt on many incidents in the lives of the Monks of the Ramakrishna Order, as well as their Master Sri Ramakrishna ... This book is as much a treatise on Vedanta as upon the Sermon on the Mount, and in integrating both, as it were one philosophy, the author has made a stupendous contribution to Hinduism and Christianity. --Vedanta Kesari

From the Publisher

A book on the Sermon on the Mount should be no novelty in a Christian community. But when that books is written by a Hindu swami, a follower of Vedanta and The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, that certainly is unusual. More so since the swami extols the Sermon as though it were a scripture of his own.

Beautiful as the this interpretation is in itself, it is presented by Swami Prabhavananda not as a far-off, scarcely attainable ideal, which is the way most Occidentals read the Sermon, but as a practical program of daily living and conduct. So clear is the Swami’s reading of this great scripture, that many a Christian by means of it will discover a simpler approach to the teachings of his Master, more direct than any he had found heretofore.

What a masterfully written book. The author breaths new, fresh life into an often quotes passage in The Bible. The words attributed to Jesus are liberated from the constraints and bindings radical reich fundamentalists calm to be proper. Truly, Jesus’s teaching is Love. What wonderful liberation this teaching can be appreciated when seen through non-dualistic eyes. Hate has no place in Christian consciousness. Those who would say otherwise are spiritual babies who are well served by the compassion, tenderness, and understanding we would afford any ignoramus of true love, wisdom, insight, and deep understanding.

This book is one of the best things that has happened to me. I had been distant from Jesus Christ due to all of the ridiculous occurrences I experienced in my Catholic faith (bad priests, radical interpretations of Christ''s teachings, etc.) This book goes to the core of Christ''s teachings in a loving, nonjudgemental manner. I have again fallen in love with Christ, as well as all of the other saints that have inhabited the Earth (Christian and non Christian.)

I thought this was a very deep spiritual understanding of this famous sermon, with not just literal interpretation of the meaning of the words, but also including great teaching stories from the Indian teachers and tradition. Jesus provided a great guide post to help one know Who They Are. The church seems to only focus on who Jesus was. This new understanding brings one closer to Jesus, not just in love but in taking one step closer to him by removing the veil of ignorance of the Christ that we are.

As an interfaith minister, I find this book to be a wonderful tool for helping teach commonalities held by teachers of the Christian and Hindu faiths, respectively. This book is full of gems and solid teachings, and I highly recommend it for all age groups.

It''s always interesting to see the outsider''s view of something you have come to understand in one certain way; to see it through fresh eyes can make it new again. This book is a superb example of exactly that. It is probably impossible to come away from this book without a whole series of new insights, no matter how many times you may have read the Sermon on the Mount or how well you think you understand everything in it.

This book also serves to make the point that some of these Eastern swamis and gurus are scholars and thinkers of the first order. It really is a shame that our view of them often has been tainted by the antics of the charlatans and hustlers that came west beginning in the 1960s to exploit their own religious traditions for personal gain. If that has been your prejudice, Prabhavananda''s book will be something of a revelation. Not to be missed.

I''ve read The Sermon on The Mount by Swami Prabhavananda twice and will read it over again throughout my life. I found much clarity in many of Jesus'' teachings here that I didn''t understand previously. Such as in The Lord''s Prayer, "Give us this day our daily bread." My thought when I was a child went to giving thanks for food, and I carried that into adult life. Please don''t laugh, I just never gave it deeper thought. But Jesus'' teachings were always meant to point us towards God-realization and the Swami tells us here that these words mean we are praying that "divine grace be reaveled to us now". (Which of course makes more sense.) I had also previously read "The Bhagavad Gita" according to Gandhi which helped me to understand the other enlightened souls mentioned in the Swami''s book.
