The Upanishads lie at the wellspring of India's loftiest teachings. Vivid, inspired, and highly personal, they offer a privileged glimpse of the unitive vision, in which all things are one in a world aflame with God.

To those who love the truth. 'The Upanishads are ancient treatises, written in Sanskrit, containing the theosophy of the Vedas. They are often referred to as rahasya, the 'mystery' or 'secret, ' as being formerly taught only to those who had gone through a special preliminary training and given proof of their fitness; they are also called shruti-shirah, or the 'head of revelation, ' as being the most precious revelation handed down to the Aryan inhabitants of India.
