The Upanishads are the most sacred texts of the Hindu religion, considered to contain the ultimate truth and the knowledge that leads to spiritual emancipation. They are the finest examples of Indian metaphysical and speculative thought. Out of the traditional 109 Upanishads, ten of them are considered to be the principal ones: Isha, Kena and Katha, Prashan, Mundaka, Mandukya, Tattiriya, Aitareya, Chhandogya and Brihadaranyaka. The Ten Principal Upanishads is an introduction of the primary Upanishads to the uninitiated. About the Author Purohit Swami, fluent in both Sanskrit and English, was instrumental in popularising the wisdom of Indian spirituality and philosophy through his translations of ancient Indian texts. His other books include The Geeta: the Gospel of the Lord Shri Krishna, The Song of Silence, Aphorisms of Yoga, In Quest of Myself, Harbinger of Love, Honeycomb and Gunjarao. This book has been co-translated by the Nobel Prize winning, Irish poet and dramatist, William Butler Yeats (1865-1939).
