The Upanishads : A one-volume Abridgement
- Edited and Translated by Swami Nikhilananda
- Hardcover (deluxe)
Although the Upanishads are by far the oldest outpourings of the mystical consciousness of man, they have remained unequalled by any rival, ancient or modern, in profundity, splendour, and purity. Though historically the products of India, and of a particular age, they are in essence ageless and universal. This abridged edition contains excerpts from the Katha, Isha, Kena, Mundaka, Shvetashvatara, Prashna, Mandukya, Aitareya, Brihadaranyaka, Taittiriya, and Chandogya Upanishads. The translation is faithful and graceful, and the exposition authentic, instructive, and attractive.
