Short Introduction:

This is the English translation of the Hamsa Upanishad (belonging to the Shukla-Yajurveda): a minor Sanskrit treatise selected amongst a collection 108 extant upanishads, dating to at least the 1st millennium BC.

The Hamsa-upanishad presents itself as a dialogue between Gautama and Sanatkumara and expounds the knowledge of Hamsa-vidya. It further describes the syllable ‘om’ and its relation to Hamsa.

Alternative titles include Haṃsopaniṣad (हंसोपनिषद्), Haṃsa Upaniṣad (हंस उपनिषद्).

Alternative transliteration: Hamsopanisad.
