In the whole world...there is no study...so beneficial
and so elevating as that of the Upanishads. They are products of the highest
wisdom. They are destined sooner or later to become the faith of the people."
"We have to remember that the highest religion of the Upanishads, which insists on meditation and morality and worship of God in spirit and in truth, is not encumbered by such traditional dogmas and miracles as still hang upon the skirts of other religions. Its central principle that there is one supreme reality that manifests itself in the universe is not asserted as a dogma. It is the ultimate truth at which it is possible for human understanding to arrive. The progress of science and philosophy does not conflict with it but only confirms it." S.Radhakrishnan
The Upanishads are at once profound religious scriptures, - for they are a record of the deepest spiritual experiences, - documents of revelatory and intuitive philosophy of an inexhaustible light, power and largeness and, whether written in verse or cadenced prose, spiritual poems of an absolute, an unfailing inspiration inevitable in phrase, wonderful in rhythm and expression. Sri Aurobindo

If you are in-terested in becoming a spiritual person and develop higher knowledge, wisdom and sensitivity towards the world and yourself, then the Upanishads are the best choice for you. Jayaram V
