Ishopanishad: Call for Equality and Equilibrium
The Ishopanishad has served as Hindus’ scripture for centuries. Author Ranjan Kumar Singh, in his latest book, “Ishopanishad: Call for Equality and Equilibrium” (published by Partridge India), now offers a fresh exploration of the scripture that looks at it from a socio-economic perspective, allowing readers to find in the text a deep understanding of equality that predates the rise of modern notion of socialism and communism. While the traditional approach to reading and interpreting this poetic work has focused upon a spiritual exploration of its message, Singh looks at the Ishopanishad from a secular perspective. By virtue of this original path, the author embraces an understanding of equality, not just predating but also prefiguring the notion of equality that emerged more than two millennia later from the works of Thomas More and Karl Marx and found expression in the systems of socialism and communism. Describing Ishopanishad as the ‘constitution of a unified world and preamble of humanity’ the author explores its connection with the modern socio-economic philosophies of the world. According to Singh, the venerable scripture sketches, maybe for the first time, the outlines of a benevolent state with a classless society of volunteers administered in accordance with their own moral code that is rooted in the ideals expressed in the scripture. Singh has turned to ancient texts for modern-day guidance to lead readers and help them develop a lifestyle most suited for today’s world of discord and discontentment by following the ethics prescribed by the “Ishopanishad.”
