"Tripura Rahasyam" is a classic in Advaita philosophy complied by a sage called Haritayana, a disciple of Parasurama of Ramayana fame. It contains the various teachings and elucidations received by Parasurama from his Guru Dattatreya. Haritayana narrated them to Narada. Tripura Rahasyam consists of three parts known as Mahatmya Khanda, Jnana Khanda and Charya Khanda. The current booklet is confined to Jnana Khanda which comprises of 2163 slokas. This Jnana Khanda elaborately describes the process of Self- enquiry (Atma Vichara) which is the ultimate step in Self-realisation. It is unique in that besides explaining the state and nature of Pure Consciousness very lucidly, the entire sequential series of Sadhanas leading to it have been discussed and some of the experiences be may encountered during the various stages of Sadhana, which a Sadhaka could easily be misled to consider as the final Reality have been underlined. Many teachings look identical with those in 'Yoga Vasishtha' while some of the sublime statements tally with those in 'Ashtavakra Gita'. Just as in Yoga Vasishtha, this text also has adopted the method of explaining some truths through some interesting and unique stories.
