The following Upanishads are on the CD:
This CD has a lot of material. You may want to listen to it in sections. Isherwood's reading of the Katha Upanishad is of special note. This Upanishad tells the story of a young man who goes to the god of Death where he learns the secret of life. We used to listen to Chris read this scripture in the early morning hours at the Vedanta Society temple on Vivekananda's birthday. Needless to say, this translation is our favorite.
