The Upanisads may be ragarded as the end of the Vedas also in the sense that they mark the culmination of the Vedic speculation. In the Upanisads themselves we are told that even after the study of the Vedas with other branches of learning a man's education is not complete till he receives instructions in the Upanisads. Besides, the Upanisads were regarded as the inner or secret meanings of the Vedas, hence their teachings were sometimes called Vedopanisad or the mystery of the Vedas.
The sages of the Upanisads claimed that they had discovered the gist or purport of all Vedic teachings in the knowledge of the absolute, of whom the gods worshipped by the authors of the mantras, as well as all objects in creation, were, they taught, names, forms or relative manifestations. The final end of all Vedic discipline were, they thought, union with Brahman, the Absolute Being.
