Short Introduction:

The Mundaka Upanishad is a collection of philosophical poems used to teach meditation and spiritual knowledge regarding the true nature of Brahma and the Self (Atman). It is composed of the three main parts (mundakas):

1) The first of three parts expounds the science of higher and lower knowledge.

2) The second part describes the true nature of the Self (Atman) and Brahman.

3) The third part further builds on the previous two parts and attempts to describe the state of knowing Brahman, which is one of bliss and fearlessness.

This commentary by Shankara focuses on ‘Advaita Vedanta’, or non-dualism: one of the classical orthodox philosophies of Hinduism.

The title in IAST is: Muṇḍaka Upaniṣad, Śaṅkara Bhāṣya.
In Devanagari: मुण्डक उपनिषद्, शङ्कर भाष्य or muṇḍakopaniṣat (मुण्डकोपनिषत्)

This English translation includes original Sanskrit text and the transliterated roman text in IAST format.
