The Upanishads are the earliest documents which speak of the splendours of the world of the spirit. They illustrate the maxim that truth is one, though it shines in many forms. Eighteen of the principal Upanishads are given here, introduced and translated by a great Indian scholar and philosopher.

About the Author:

Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (1888-1975) was an Indian philosopher and statesman who served as the president of India from 1962 to 1967 and as the nation's first vice president from 1952 to 1962. Prior to his political career, he was the chairman of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). An educator by profession, he held many university positions in India and also at the University of Oxford in England (1936–1952). As one of India's most distinguished twentieth-century scholars of comparative religion and philosophy, he was influential in shaping the understanding of Hinduism, in both India and the West. He was awarded the Templeton Prize posthumously.

Radhakrishnan’s other published works include Indian Philosophy (1923–27), The Philosophy of the Upanishads (1924), An Idealist View of Life (1932), Eastern Religions and Western Thought (1939), and East and West: Some Reflections (1955).
