The scripture concerns the story of a young man who goes to the house of death to find out what happens after death.The reply describes the nature of reality and the meaning of life. This scripture is one of the most popular Upanishads.
Each book contains the Devanagri text with translation into English. (The Lokeswarananda and Sarvananda editions also include a transliteration of the Devanagri text into Roman characters.) Explanatory footnotes added when necessary.
We especially recommend the Sw. Prabhavananda translation of this scripture as found in Upanishads: Breath of the Eternal.
I enjoyed the books. They arrived fairly quickly. I recommend reading these texts under guidance of a teacher. There a plenty of videos of lectures available on youtube that go through the books verse by verse.
