Tripura Rahasya

The Mystery Beyond the Trinity


The Tripura Rahasya is an ancient literary work believed to have been narrated by the great sage Dattatreya. Through stories and analogies, it lays out the entire spiritual pursuit and attainment in a way that is clear and direct.

The verses here are full of divine nectar, reflecting the highest truths through the teachings of Advaita. Tripura Rahasya was highly recommended by Sri Ramana Maharshi and he often quoted from it, considering it to be one of the greatest expositions of the traditional teachings of Advaita.

Translated by Swami Sri Ramanananda Saraswathi (Munagala S. Venkataramaiah)

“The truth is that there is one Reality which is consciousness in the abstract and also transcendental, irradiating the whole universe in all its diversity from its own being, by virtue of its self-sufficiency, which we call Maya or Sakti or Energy. Ignorance lies in the feeling of differentiation of the creatures from the Creator. The individuals are only details in the same Reality.”  ~ Tripura Rahasya


About the cosmetic imperfections: these can vary, but are of the nature of a few pages having small folds in the corner, page cutting errors, smudges on inside pages, a few printing ink marks on the paper edges or damage to the cover or spine.
