Why it’s important:
- The Upanishads are a collection of texts of religious and philosophical nature, written in India between c. 800 BCE and c. 500 BCE, to engage in the pursuit of spiritual progress.
- Upanishads are not a pure philosophy, but rather a mix of practicality along with the philosophy.
Why I like this book:
- Eknath Easwaran makes this challenging text more accessible by selecting the passages most relevant to current era readers seeking timeless truths.
