Description de l’éditeur
The Upanishads are a collection of texts which contain the central philosophical concepts of Hinduism. They explore the concepts of Brahman (Ultimate Reality) and Atman (Soul, Self), which are the spiritual core of Hinduism.
The Katha Upanishad is among the most widely studied Upanishads.
Famous Irish poet William Butler Yeats dedicated several essays and sonnets to themes in Katha Upanishad.
A verse in the Katha Upanishad inspired the title and the epigraph of W. Somerset Maugham's famous 1944 novel The Razor’s Edge. The verse is, "Like the sharp edge of a razor at night, difficult is the path, so say the wise." (1.3.14)
