Additional Information

The Upanishads are sometimes referred to as Vedanta, variously interpreted to mean either the "last chapters, parts of the Veda" or "the object, the highest purpose of the Veda". The concepts of Brahman (Ultimate Reality) and Atman (Soul, Self) are central ideas in all the Upanishads, and "Know your Atman" their thematic focus. The Upanishads are the foundation of Hindu philosophical thought and its diverse traditions. Of the Vedic corpus, they alone are widely known, and the central ideas of the Upanishads are at the spiritual core of Hindus.

Good as a devotional reading,The mind described in the Upanishads is the superconscious mind. According to the Vedic Sages the mind in its ordinary state is only another sense organ. This mind is limited, but when it becomes illumined by the light of the Cosmic Intelligence, or the “mind of the mind,” then it is able to apprehend the First Cause or That which stands behind all external activities.
I liked the annotations, as they helped me to understand the parables and sayings. It's a great little book on which to meditate over morning coffee, or anytime during the day, as an escape from the "senses" to enjoy some deep thinking.
This is a cornerstone of not only Indian spirituality and literature, but of HUMAN spirituality and literature. Read it on Kindle, read it in a printed book, buy it or get it from the library, but please do yourself a favor and read it. If you're interested in Buddhism (as I am), you'll find many interested seeds of thought in this work that the Buddha later refined into his own tradition. Just wonderful.
