This book contains a brief study of the ten cardinal Upanishads and gives all the essential information needed to understand them. It is aimed at equipping an average student of religion and philosophy with a basic knowledge of the Upanishads in general and the ten in particular.
The Upanisads (as part of the Vedas) are the basic scriptures of Hinduism. This series of four booklets contains a brief study of the ten cardinal Upanisads. This booklet, the first of the series, gives all the essential information needed to understand them.
Then will follow three more, containing the gist of the ten cardinal Upanisads arranged in the traditional order. We hope that this series of four booklets also will become popular like the other booklets published from here.
