The 108 Upaniṣads are considered the essence of all the Vedas, and Śrī Īśopaniṣad is foremost among them.
For thousands of years, people on spiritual quests have consulted the mystical, intensely philosophical Upaniṣads . Discover the distilled essence of all knowledge in these eighteen enlightening verses.
As the name implies (upa – “near”; ni – “down”; ṣad – “to sit”), seekers are advised to sit near the spiritual teacher to learn.
But to learn what? The name of this Upaniṣad gives a hint: īśa means “the supreme controller.” So we are to sit at the feet of the spiritual guide and learn about the supreme controller, God. Wisdom is gained easily, provided we learn from an authentic guide.
The translation and commentary of Śrīla Prabhupāda strictly adheres to the book's intention, assuring you of a legitimate understanding of the depths of Upaniṣadic knowledge.
