One of the shortest collections of texts, consisting of seventeen or eighteen verses, the Isha Upanishad is significant because of its explanation of man's relationship with nature and God. This edition of the Isha Upanishad has been translated in clear and vivid language by a renowned poet, painter, and filmmaker.
That is full. This is full. From the full comes the full. Remove the full from the full and what remains? The full. This first line of the Isha Upanishad, one of the most powerful ancient books of faith, is so profound that Mahatma Gandhi famously said, "If all the Upanishads and all the other scriptures happened all of a sudden to be reduced to ashes, and if only the first verse in the Isha Upanishad were left in the memory of the Hindus, Hinduism would live forever." One of the shortest collections of texts, consisting of seventeen or eighteen verses, the Isha Upanishad is significant because of its explanation of man's relationship with nature and God. However, it also goes beyond all faiths and religions to help people look within and without themselves to answer questions that have existed and persisted from the dawn of civilization. This beautifully crafted edition of the Isha Upanishad has been translated in clear and vivid language by Pritish Nandy, renowned poet, painter, and filmmaker. And for the first time the powerful scripture is accompanied by brilliant illustrations by accomplished artist and designer Sunandini Banerjee. Together the crisp passages and glowing illustrations manifest the thread that connects all that exists and chronicle mankind's search for the true meaning of life.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"Since Isha pervades every fibre of my being and all of you, I derive from it the doctrine of equality of all creatures on earth.... This mantra tells me that I cannot hold as mine anything... and if my life and that of all who believe in this mantra has to be a life of perfect dedication, it follows that it will have to be a life of continual service of our fellow creatures." (Mahatma Gandhi)"
