The Upanishads (Classic of Indian Spirituality)
The Upanishads (Classic of Indian Spirituality)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderfully Clear Translation, 27 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I'm relatively new to the world of Eastern spiritual texts, Easwaran's translation (as well as the other two in this series "Classic's Of Indian Spirituality") is lucid and clear, with helpful introductions throughout that explain the significance of each Upanishad, and it's context within the culture and history of ancient India.

The work itself is effortlessly transcendent, and Easwaran leaves untranslated the concepts that are indescribable in a western tongue, allowing a more personal reading, and for the ideas to become clearer as one progress's through the text.
