The eternal Upanishads represent the profound essence, the succulent juice and the perennial spiritual philosophy of the Vedas, expounded and elucidated to make them practical and accessible for spiritual aspirants. They are magnificent, stupendous, forceful and powerful instruments in the hands of true seekers that provide spiritual foresight and vision of the ultimate truth and reality.
The Upanishads are integral part of the vedas; each Veda has a number of Upanishads in it. The present series classifies these Upanishads in true vedic tradition. i.e. they are listed and separated into different volumes strictly according to the Vedic sequence and the Vedas they appear in.
Each verse of each Upanishad has been extensively explained using simple language supplemented by elaborate notes so that these profound metaphysical treaties can be made accessible to even a lay man. Towards this end, extensive appendices have been added to elucidate the different concepts in simple words. Concepts such as OM, Naad, Naadis, Chakras, Yoga, Atma, Viraat, Moksha etc. are all elaborately explained in these separate appendices, a mantra index in roman is also included.
The present volume contains 32 principal Upanishad of the Krsna Yajurveda. The sequence of their listing in this volume strictly follows the sanction of the Upanishads themselves, as is clear in Muktikopanishad, Canto 1 vers no.55.
