The origins of the upanishads sacred writings of Hinduism predate recorded history. they are thought of by many as perhaps the greatest of all the books in the history of world religions. Since they were revealed to the Rishis of the vedic civilization some 5000 to 10000 years ago many have come to regard them as the kernel of the mystical and philosophical truths that are the basis of understanding religion today.

Alan Jacobs has used free modern verse to convey the essential meaning and poetry of the original text omitting sanskrit words as much as possible and providing a clear contemporary commentary.
