An initiated disciple of AC Bhaktivedanta, Swami Prabhupad, Pierre Corbeil served him as a translator of the largest portion of his work. This book is a simplified and modernised version of the Ishopanishad, based on the elaborately commented translation of Bhaktivedanta Swami. The oldest of the 108 Upanishads, this text clearly presents the personal aspect of the Absolute, and was chosen to serve as an introduction to the philosophical and spiritual tradition of the Vedas.
A very thought – provoking book, it unearths the buried treasures of the Ishopanishad, rendering its wisdom in words that make otherwise esoteric teachings accessible to general readership.
