The quintessence of Hindu thought
This book is the first complete French translation of the Upanishads, supplemented with a glossary of over 150 pages for a profound understanding of the words. This body of mystic, poetic and philosophical texts represents the quintessence of Hindu thought. Passed from master to disciple throughout the centuries, they contain teachings on the path to liberation through mastery of the body and mind, in order for the individual soul to become one with the universal soul. Such was the influence of these sacred texts that they inspired a number of eastern and western thinkers. “Reading the Upanishads involves truly experiencing the silent essence hidden beneath the audible element of the sound [...] Reading the Upanishads involves simultaneously gazing deep within myself.”
