notes
Title is part of a Sanskrit chant/prayer, from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, that goes:
असतो मा साद गमय, तमसो मा ज्योतिर् गमय, मृत्योर मा अमृतम् गमय
(Asato Ma Sad Gamaya, Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamaya, Mrityor Ma Amritam Gamaya)
Lead us from ignorance to truth, Lead us from darkness to light, Lead us from death to deathlessness.
Thus Asato can in a narrow sense be said to be a companion volume to Mrityorma Amritam Gamaya (मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय) and Tamso Ma Jyotirgamaya (तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय), though they are thematically very different.
This volume does not consist of original talks but is a compilation, of Nirvan Upanishad (निर्वाण उपनिषद) and Ishavasyopanishad (ईशावास्योपनिषद), talks for which were given in 1971. See discussion for more on this.
Previously Ishavasyopanishad published as 20 chapters (prayer + 18 sutras + prayer). Numbers of sutras in this book are the same as in previous book, but they compiled here as 13 chapters and last two chapters here swaped (with incorrect dates in both chapters). Besides ends of three last capters mixed up. See discussion. Last anomaly with this book - missing a few last lines in the end of last chapter, this error repeated in Ishavasyopanishad too.
