Vichar Sagar of Nischal Das - Hindi Text & English Translation

An English translation of popular Vedantic text "Vichar Sagar" (Hindi) of Nishchal Dasji (1791-1863), by Lala Sreeram.

The English translation is titled "Metaphysics of the Upanishads". Vichar Sagar has been so popular in northern parts of country that it has been used for daily reading for more than centuries by common man who did not have access to Sanskrit scriptures of Vedanta.

Nischal Dasji, who was a Dadu panthi sadhu, had authored many books dealing with Vedanta. Vichara Sagara is the most popular among them. This book is very useful for understanding various prakriyas of Vedanta.

  6. कोटिशः धन्यवाद है श्रीमान ! मैं स्वामी विवेकानन्दजी को अपना आदर्श मानता हूँ, उन्होंने संत निश्चलदास रचित विचारसागर ग्रन्थ में लिखित दोहे
    ' जो ब्रह्मविद वही ब्रह्म, ताको वाणी वेद।
    संस्कृत और भाषा में करत भरम का छेद।।'
    का उल्लेख करते हुए, बहुत बखान किया है। तथा भारत के युवाओं को उनके जैसा ही ब्रह्मविद या पैगम्बर बनकर भारत के कोने कोने में 'मनुष्यनिर्माण और चरित्र निर्माणकारी शिक्षा ' का प्रचार-प्रसार करने का आह्वान किया है। स्वामीजी द्वारा कथित महावाक्य 'Be and Make ' के मर्म को समझने के लिए हिन्दी भाषी युवाओ को स्वामी निश्चलदास द्वारा लोकभाषा में रचित उपनिषद -श्रीविचारसागर पढना बहुत आवश्यक है। मैं बहुत व्याकुलता से इस हिन्दी भाषा में इस ग्रन्थ की खोज कर रहा था। आज इस ग्रन्थ को प्राप्त कर मैं अपने को धन्य महसूस कर रहा हूँ, और आपके माध्यम से 'गूगल बाबा' को भी धन्यवाद कहता हूँ।
