The 108 Upaniṣads are considered the essence of all the Vedas, and Śrī Īśopaniṣad is foremost among them. Discover the distilled essence of all knowledge in these eighteen enlightening verses.
For thousands of years, people on a spiritual quest have consulted the mystical, intensely philosophical Upaniṣads. As the name implies (upa – “near”; ni – “down”; ṣad – “to sit”), one is advised to sit near a spiritual teacher to learn. Learn what? This Upaniṣad’s name gives the clue: to learn about īśa, “the supreme controller.”
The process is simple, provided one learns it from an authentic guide. Śrīla Prabhupāda’s translation and commentary strictly adheres to the work’s intention, assuring you that you will receive a deep understanding of Upanisadic knowledge.
