A lyrically beautiful and spiritually insightful book that seems to have an almost transcendental effect on it's privileged reader. Whether you are deeply interested in theology and philosophy or a casual reader, I believe these writings can speak to everyone in some way, even to a militant atheist who believes there is not a shred of truth to be found within them, they are still worth reading for their immense beauty. It is easy to see why Schopenhauer spoke so highly of them, they are truly up there with the finest texts to ever be produced by human minds. That they were written thousands of years ago only serves to increase the wonder a reader feels on reading them.

Excellent translation; easy to read/digest... Well presented and enjoyable; as all books by Vernon Katz

Hope Vernon and his chums do the same for the rest of the Upanishads

I'd buy this book for the introduction alone. It's a masterpiece - he explains the inexplicable with simple clarity, drawing on poetry and religious words from throughout the ages, showing how all of them are saying the same thing, underneath.
