Isa Upanishad
Translated by F. Max Müller


Previous Next  


Editor's Introduction


IN TRADITIONAL COMPILATIONS of the Upanishads, this one usually appears first.

It constitutes the fortieth chapter of the Vajasaneyi Samhita of the White Yajurveda. Since it is the only Upanishad taken wholly from a Vedic Samhita, it is sometimes called the "Samhita Upanishad."

Like the Kena Upanishad, the Isa Upanishad takes its name from its first word, Isa, meaning "by the Lord."

The Text

This translation was made by F. Max Müller, a famous nineteenth-century Sanskrit scholar. We have copied it from The Sacred Books of the East, Volume I, published in 1879. The copyright has expired.

The notes are by me.
