Synopsis: This new translation of The Upanishads is at once delightfully simple and rigorously learned, providing today’s readers with an accurate, accessible rendering of the core work of ancient Indian philosophy.
The Upanishads are often considered the most important literature from ancient India. Yet many academic translators fail to capture the work’s philosophical and spiritual subtlety, while others convey its poetry at the cost of literal meaning.
This new translation by Vernon Katz and Thomas Egenes fills the need for an Upanishads that is clear, simple, and insightful – yet remains faithful to the original Sanskrit.
As Western Sanskrit scholars who have spent their lives immersed in meditative practice, Katz and Egenes offer a unique perspective in penetrating the depths of Eastern wisdom and expressing these insights in modern yet poetic language.
Their historical introduction is suited to newcomers and experienced readers alike, providing the perfect entry to this unparalleled work.
About the Author:
Vernon Katz received his doctorate from Oxford University, where he studied the Upanishads with Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who later became president of India. Katz assisted the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of Transcendental Meditation, in his classic translation of the Bhagavad Gita. Katz’s books include The Blue Salon and Other Follies, an account of growing up as a Jewish boy in Nazi Germany.
Thomas Egenes received his doctorate from the University of Virginia, after graduating from the University of Notre Dame. He is an associate professor at Maharishi University of Management. Egenes has written some of today’s leading guides for learning Sanskrit, which are used at universities in the U.S., Europe, and Australia.
