Summary: The very title of this Upanishad is philosophically significant. Kena in Sanskrit implies a question, and means by ‘by whom?’ Philosophy matures only when it becomes a critical estimate of experience and all its assumptions; otherwise it remains dogmatic and immature, or skeptical and over-mature. This Upanishad registers the appearance of critical philosophy in India at a very early period in her long history.
This edition contains the original Sanskrit text, the roman transliteration according to the IAST scheme and the english translation of the Kena Upanishad
