The essence of the Upanishads beautifully exemplified in Tamil

The Upanishads are the religious and philosophical texts of Hinduism (otherwise called Sanatan Dharma signifying "Everlasting Order" or "Timeless Path") which create and make sense of the major fundamentals of the religion. Upanishad has additionally been perceived to imply "secret educating" or "uncovering basic truth". The insights tended to be the ideas communicated in the religious texts known as the Vedas which conventional Hindus think of as the secret information on the creation and the activity of the universe. 

The word Veda signifies "information" and the four Vedas are remembered to communicate the key information on human life. These works are viewed as Shruti in Hinduism signifying "what is heard" as they are remembered to have radiated from the vibrations of the universe and heard by the sages who propagated them orally before they were recorded. The Upanishads are thought of as the "end of the Vedic writings" (Vedanta) in that they develop, make sense of, and foster the Vedic ideas through an exchange of narratives and, in this manner, urge one to engage with expressed ideas on an individual, profound level. The Rig Veda is the most ancient one and the Sama Veda and Yajur Veda draw from it while the Atharva Veda takes an alternate course. Every one of the four, nonetheless, keeps up with a similar vision, and the Upanishads for every one of these consider the topics and ideas communicated. The 13 Upanishads are:

1. Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

    2. Chandogya Upanishad

      3. Taittiriya Upanishad

        4. Aitareya Upanishad

          5. Kausitaki Upanishad

            6. Kena Upanishad

              7. Katha Upanishad

                8. Isha Upanishad

                  9. Svetasvatara Upanishad

                    10. Mundaka Upanishad

                      11. Prashna Upanishad

                        12. Kaivalya Upanishad

                          13. Mandukya Upanishad

                          The ideals of the Upanishads

                          The Upanishads manage the recognition of customs and the individual's significance in the huge universe and, in doing that, foster the principal ideas of the Supreme Over Soul (God) known as Brahman and the Atman, the higher self of the individual. These works characterized, and keep on characterizing, the fundamental principles of Hinduism yet the earliest of them would likewise impact the improvement of Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, and, after their interpretation of European dialects in the nineteenth century CE, the philosophical idea all over the planet. The objective of life is self-realization - to turn out to be totally mindful of and in contact with one's higher self - so one could reside as intently as conceivable as per the Eternal Order of the Universe and, after death, get back to complete the association with Brahman.

                          Every individual was put on earth for a particular reason which was their obligation (dharma) which they are expected to perform with the correct action (karma) to accomplish self-realization. Evil was brought about by the obliviousness of the great and the subsequent inability to play out one's dharma through legitimate karma. Karma, if not released accurately, brought about affliction - whether in this life or the next - thus enduring suffering and pain was eventually the person's own issue. The idea of karma was never planned as an all-inclusive deterministic rule which destined a person to a set course; it generally implied that one's activities had outcomes that prompted specific unsurprising outcomes. The person's administration of their own karma drove one to progress or disappointment, fulfillment or distress, no heavenly declaration.


                          Q1. Why are Upanishads an essential part of the Vedas?

                          The Upanishads assumed a significant part in the improvement of profound thoughts in old India, denoting a change from Vedic formality to groundbreaking thoughts and organizations.

                          Q2. What is the most important principle of Upanishad?

                          The Upanishads emphasize the idea of Karma, and how it is brought about by one’s own actions and decisions. It also talks about Dharma or the actions one should undertake to fulfill their heavenly role.

                          Q3. How many Upanishad books are there?


                          The Upanishads are the sacred Sanskrit texts of Hindus that are part of the Vedas. The names of 108 Upanishads are given in the Muktika Upanishad. The Rig Veda contains 10, Samaveda 16, Shukla Yajurveda 19, Krishna Yajurveda 32, and Atharvaveda 31 Upanishads.

                          Q4. What is the main purpose of Upanishads?

                          The Upanishads played an important role in the evolution of ancient Indian thought. Many schools of Hindu philosophy, sectarian movements and even the later day religions like Buddhism and Jainism derived richly from the knowledge contained in them. Hinduism owes its philosophical depth to the knowledge of the Upanishads only. Otherwise, it would have remained a religion of superficial rituals and rites and become vulnerable to superstition and obscurantism. Indeed, they were largely responsible for its popularity and philosophical and intellectual appeal.
