Isha Upanishad

The discourse meted out by the sage, Datyang Aadarvanar, to his son seeking spiritual liberation is contained within the Isha Upanishad. Some of the pearls of wisdom dispensed by him include:-

The one, who adores the worldly life, let him continue with all the duties he has to perform and anticipate living for a hundred years. That is his only way to liberation. There is no other path for him except this one in which he should accomplish his duties without any sort of attachment.

Those who commit suicide go to the other worlds (after their death), which are covered by utter blinding darkness and are the living places of demons.

The Atma (or the Soul) is without any activity, any movement, is only a united whole, and is faster than the manas (or the mind). The Devas who reside in the indriyaas (or the parts of the body) were not able to reach it since it is already beyond them. The Atma remains still and yet crosses those, which are moving and running. In that the Vayu (the Wind God) remains and handles all other activities of the body.


Q1. What does Isha Upanishad says?


The only reality or truth according to Isha Upanishad is acquired when the soul realizes its world of name and form, and thereby also renounces what can be said to be worldly desires like son, wealth and worlds. Thus, realize your true nature of self through determination and renunciation.


Q2. How many mantras are there in Isha Upanishad?


The Isavasya Upanishad which has 18 mantras is, strictly speaking, not an Upanishad. It comes under the Samhita portion of the Sukla Yajurveda, called Vajasaneya Samhita, as the concluding 40th chapter.
