Brihadaranyaka Upanishad


Brihadaranyaka Upanishad is one of the oldest Upanishads, it is estimated that it was compiled about 2700 years ago from much older, now lost, material. Brihadaranyaka Upanishad means“Upanishad of the great forests” and it centers around the fundamentals of the Atman, Soul or Self. It is in the Brihadaranyaka we first see the written conceptualization of Karma and non-duality. The work consists of six chapters dealing with such comprehensive themes as the Vedic theories of the creation of the Universe to metaphysical, spiritual and psychological matters.
