One of the most important texts of the Hindu religion, "The Upanishads" have been recognized throughout the centuries by Hindu believers and Western thinkers as philosophical and spiritual meditations of the highest order. These ancient accounts of mystical revelations remain the primary source of spiritual guidance for millions of believers today.
One of the most important Vedic texts, THE UPANISHADS, contains sacred revelations, insights, and divine truths by saints and seers. They are translated here from the original Sanskrit by Prabhavananda, who is credited with making Hindu scriptures accessible to Western readers, particularly with his widely read translation of THE BHAGAVAD-GITA.
This version is regarded as one of the most comprehensive and oft-cited in discussions of Hinduism, due to the author's effort to preserve the original spirit of the ancient texts. In stories, verse, prose, and even song, the inspired words of 12 mystics explain the nature of existence and make recommendations for understanding the idea of detachment, the self, the universe's essential oneness, and supreme truth.
