The greatness and the sublimity of the Upanishads are well known to all students of philosophy. There have been many attempts to approach the book through various standpoints. Much has been written over the knotty problems of interpretation, by Eastern and Western scholars. And yet, the lay reader has understood the central teachings not fully well. In this volume, Sri Swamiji has stressed such points clearly and truly, explaining the abstruse ideas in his own inimitable style, thus laying bare the sacred doctrine not only before the eligible pupil but also the lay reader. The present volume contains the Text, Translation, important Notes and exhaustive Commentary on Nine Principal Upanishads.
