The Upanisads are the central scriptures of Hinduism. They represent some of the most important literary products in the history of Indian culture and religion, both because they played a critical role in the development of religious ideas in India and because they are our greatest source forthe religious, social, and intellectual history of ancient India. Composed at a time of great social, economic, and religious change, the Upanisads document the transition from the archaic ritualism of the Veda into new religious ideas and institutions.The first major English translation of the ancient Upanisads for over half a century, Olivelle's work incorporates the most recent historical and philological scholarship.

They are late Vedic Sanskrit texts of Hindu philosophy which form the foundations of Hinduism. They are the most recent part of the Vedas, the oldest scriptures of Hinduism, and deal with meditation, philosophy, and ontological knowledge; other parts of the Vedas deal with mantras, benedictions, rituals, ceremonies, and sacrifices. Among the most important literature in the history of Indian religions and culture, the Upanishads played an important role in the development of spiritual ideas in ancient India, marking a transition from Vedic ritualism to new ideas and institutions. Of all Vedic literature, the Upanishads alone are widely known, and their central ideas are at the spiritual core of Hinduism. ( )

Finished last night after a few months. Not quite sure how to review this one.

I've read taoist books over the years, and grew up with the bible. The Upanishads kind of fits in somewhere alongside these, but also not. The Tao te Ching raises questions. The Upanishads is full of something closer to answers - in terms of how it communicates its ideas.

Which is to say, I found the overlap with the taoist texts interesting - mainly snippets about paths, but more around the role that dreaming and dreamless sleep play (which Chuang Tzu and Liu I-ming mention a few times). The true meaning of "aum/om" is massive, in this sense.

Overall, a dense and often repetitive text but with sound reason and a lot to take in and understand. I'll keep this and refer back to all the sticky bookmarks I've put in place, until such time that I can burn it and escape this body. ( )

"Maitreyi," Yajnavalkya said to his wife one day, "the time has come for me to go forth from the worldly life."
Life in the world and life in the spirit are not incompatible.
[INTRODUCTION to the 1965 Penguin edition:]
The Sanskrit word Upanishad, Upa-ni-shad, comes from the verb sad, to sit, with upa, connected with Latin s-ub, under; and ni, found in English be-neath and ne-ther.
Behold the universe in the glory of God: and all that lives and moves on earth.
