Summary: This is the English translation of the Niralamba 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 Niralamba-upanishad represents a glossary of some of the terms of Vedanta (a major branch of Hindu philosophy). The term niralamba translates to “without support”. It consists of the prefix ‘nis’ (without) and the word ‘ālamba’ (support).

Alternative titles include Nirālambopaniṣad (निरालम्बोपनिषद्) and Nirālamba Upaniṣad (निरालम्ब उपनिषद्)
