Short Introduction:

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

The Maitreya-upanishad teaches that the path to moksha (liberation) is obtained by self-knowledge and renunciation. Maitreya also instructs that the Lord resides within the heart of each person.

Alternative titles include Maitreyopaniṣad (मैत्रेयोपनिषद्) and Maitreya Upaniṣad (मैत्रेय उपनिषद्)
