Bhradaranyaka Upanishad (With Sukla Yajurvediya Kanva Svaras)
The most important Brahadaranayaka Upanishad is the perennial source of secret and sacred spiritual knowledge. The Madhu Kanda teaches the identity of the individual self and the universal self and the superimposition of the world on Brahman, Adi Sankara, Ramanuja and Madhva have commented on this Upanishad. Sureshvara wrote a vartika (a gloss on Sankara’s commentary). There are two recensions of the Satapatha Brahmana, the Kanva and the Madhyandina. Sankara followed the Kanva recension.
