About The Book:
Īśopaniṣad is one of the short Upanishads with only 18 mantras but which captures the entire gamut of Hindu philosophy and worldview. This commentary, which is divided into two parts, aims to not only provide a word-by-word explanation on each of the verses, but also provide an exposition of the vision of the Upanishad going beyond its text.
Nithin Sridhar has produced one of the most indepth and detailed studies of this key Upanishad.

The success of this commentary primarily rests on its ability to follow Adi Shankara’s exposition closely.

– Sri Chittaranjan Naik, Author & Director of Gautama Academy of Indian Intellectual Traditions
The work of Sri Nithin Sridhar is a good refresher to a general reader who wants to know the relative importance of various paths and traditions mentioned in the Upanishads.
