The "Upanisads" is the Hindu equivalent of the Christian New Testament. It is a collection of spritual treatises written in Sanskirt between 800 and 400 BCE. Typically an "Upanisad" recounts one or more sessions of teaching, often setting each within the story of how it came to be taught. These 13 texts, the principal "Upanisads", are devoted to understanding the inner meaning of the religion: they explicate its crucial doctrines - rebirth, the law of karma, the means of conquering death and of achieving detachment, equilibrium and spiritual bliss. They emphasise the perennial search for true knowledge. This translation and selection offers a full and comprehensive text.
