Motilal Banarsidass Publ., 1978 - VEDAS - 349 pages
First time in the history of India, in 1958, a Sankaracarya visited West. The author, His Holiness Jagadguru Sankaracarya Sri Bharati Krsna Tirtha of Puri, went to America at the invitation of the Self Realization Fellowship, Los Angeles, to spread the message of Vedanta. This book is a compilation of some of his discourses delivered there. These discourses by a saint-yogi and master of ancient Indian scriptures, also well-versed in modern sciences, give the essentials of Vedanta. They combine authenticity of thought with simplicity of language. Being couched in the contemporary idiom they will be found to be particularly suited to the modern mind. Though addressed to American audiences, the discourses carry a message of eternal truth and of universal application. The steps of spiritual inquiry and the paths of God-realisation outlined in them will be of immense practical use to the readers in their quest for the Supreme.

While i was writing the life of an extraordinary personality Jagadguru
Sankaracharya Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj after going over his
book on Vedic Math, i was badly looking for some of his discourses he
had during Jagadguji's US tour to encourage readers know more about
him and his Spiritual phylosophy guided Vedas and his learnings throughout
his life. I was searching in Google about Jagadguru's World Reconstruction
Association and World Peace and here comes the link for the book
Vedic Metaphysics with his message to world diring his US tour.
My sincere thanks to Self Realization Fellowship centre (US)
and World Reconstruction Association (India) to arrage this tour by
Jagadgiru to share his lofty Vedantik ideals towards world peace.
Much appreciation to put so much effort by the SRF centre to put all
discourses, classes and Q&A in more than 80 Universities, Churches
and Communuty centres both in California and New York areas within
a period of 85 days in their bulletins /newsletters after painstaking
review of shorthand notes and audio recordings to keep it original.
I am sure the collection of Jagadguru's messeges will inspire many to
follow his path of reconciliation, peace and brotherhood in this material
world in days ahead.
