Thirty minor Upanishads

by K. Narayanasvami Aiyar | 1914 | 95,228 words

Summary: This book contains the English translation of thirty minor Upanishads.—Fourteen belonging to Vedanta, two are categorised as Physiological, three are Mantra, two are Sannyasa and the remaining nine are categorised as Yoga-Upanishads. These Upanishads are properly defined as the Aranya-portion of the Vedas (most ancient Hindu scriptures) and are so-called because they were read in a forest (Aranya) by those who had given up the worldly life. They collectively belong to the philosophical branch known as Vedanta (lit. “the end or final crown of the Vedas”) which is also known as “the end of all knowledge”, since the word Vedas means according to its derivation “knowledge”.
