Illumined sages share flashes of insight into consciousness itself. They teach that each of us, each Self, is eternal, deathless, one with the power that created the universe.
Easwaran’s The Upanishads is reliable and readable, and by far the bestselling translation in the US. It includes a 35-page overview of the cultural and historical setting, and introductions to each chapter. But it is Easwaran’s understanding of the wisdom of the Upanishads that makes this edition truly outstanding.
Each Upanishad appeals 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.”
