Short Introduction:

The Prashna Upanishad is a series philosophical poems presented as questions (prashna) inquired by various Hindu sages (Rishi) and answered by Sage Pippalada. The questions discuss knowledge about Brahman, the relation of the individual (Purusha) with the universal (Atman), meditation, immortality and various other Spiritual topics.

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

The title in IAST is: Praśna Upaniṣad, Śaṅkara Bhāṣya.
In Devanagari: प्रश्न उपनिषद्, शङ्कर भाष्य or praśnopaniṣat (प्रश्नोपनिषत्).

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