The Upanishads

Translated and Commentated


Swami Paramananda

From the Original Sanskrit Text

This volume is reverently dedicated to all seekers of truth and
lovers of wisdom


The translator's idea of rendering the Upanishads into clear
simple English, accessible to Occidental readers, had its origin
in a visit paid to a Boston friend in 1909. The gentleman, then
battling with a fatal malady, took from his library shelf a
translation of the Upanishads and, opening it, expressed deep
regret that the obscure and unfamiliar form shut from him what he
felt to be profound and vital teaching.
