Overview

In the ancient wisdom texts called the Uphanishads, illumined sages share flashes of insight, the results of their investigation into consciousness itself. In extraordinary visions, they experience directly a transcendent Reality which is the essence, or Self, of each created being. They teach that each of us, each Self, is eternal, deathless, one with the power that created the universe.

Easwaran's translation is reliable and readable, consistently the bestseller in its field. It includes an overview of the cultural and historical setting, with chapter introductions, notes, and a Sanskrit glossary. But it is Easwaran's understanding of the wisdom of the Upanishads, and their relevance to the modern reader, that makes this edition truly outstanding. Each sage, each Upanishads, appeal in different ways to the reader's head and heart. In the end, Easwaran writes, "The Upanishads belong not just to Hinduism. They are India's precious legacy to humanity, and in that spirit they are offered here."

    Ancient wisdom, superb translation.

    The wisdom of the Upanishads is timeless. The Vedic philosophy that came from centuries of meditation and education in the forest schools of ancient India forms the substrate of our current religions and philosophical traditions. Eknath Easwaran excels at translating and explaining this deep well of knowledge in such a way that any person who is interested in philosophy and spirituality can easily understand it and access its deeper meaning. This is the book that started it all, and it is well worth reading.
