Book Description

The Upanisads incorporate the cream of our ancient knowledge and philosophy regarding the Brahman, the Atman & the world. The importance of these spiritual texts has been well-recog nised by scholars the world over. Great savants of Indology have made general study of the principal Upanisads, but, the concentrated and detailed study of individual Upanisads from all aspects is a desideratum.

The present book envisages the study of the Taittiriya Upanisad, which is one of the ancient and the most impor tant Upanisads belonging to the Krsna Yajurveda recension. It aims at the com prehensive and deep evaluation of the text, from all the different aspects like the philosophical, metaphysical, ethical, so cial, linguistic, literary and cultural stand-points. It not only contains for the first time the details regarding sixty commentaries on the text but also the comparative survey of opinions and interpretations of Acaryas on the pas sages of the Taittiriya Upanisad. The book can well fulfil the requirement of indepth and comparative research work on this particular Upanisad.
