We are pleased to present a Hindi commentary on Ishopanishad by Pt Rajveer Shastri based on commentary on Vedas by Swami Dayanand Saraswati. Ishopanishad – which is 40th chapter of Yajurveda – is undoubtedly the best text on philosophy and spirituality that one can ever read. It forms the foundation of Geeta and in fact all powerful philosophies of world.

Read it and change your life! As with any text of philosophy, one is expected to study as if learning to drive a car and not mechanically. You need to understand the concepts, develop a feel for it and practice in life! And in process benefit from all the bliss that Ishwar has bestowed upon us!

Adi Shankaracharya was no doubt a genius, but he cannot be an exception to criticism. He contributed the most in propagating anti-Vedic philosophy of Adwait or Non-dualism or Monism. The Vedas, Upanishadas and Darshan Shastras – all mention that the individual soul (atma = Jivatma = jiva) is fundamentally different… Read more »
Is this article about ishavasyopanishad or ishopanishad? first time i am hearing ishopanishad Adi Sankara says Jivatma(soul) = paramatma (soul of Shiva, Vishnu, Durga) = Para Brahmam. Almost all says para Brahman . i want to correct here. it is Brahmam (Bramham) not Brahman, because Brahman is the supreme ritwik… Read more »
the beauty of hindu dharma lies n the fact that a hindu,be him any one,in any state of awareness/comsciousness still can approach God, the supreme in any manner,i.e.,in any form.snce all the forms are encompassed by God as saguna, each ddeity is a disintegrated part,or,in other words, a manifestation that… Read more »
we cannot make such a claim.because,we can make a relation between soul and brahman as between as ocean and a drop of water,both in essense are the same in quality.the soul comes out,or projects out from God as water droplet is taken out from a body of water.after all r=births… Read more »
I am sorry to be the oddball here. I do not see anyone, who thinks that Aadi Shankaryacharyji made mistake in intepreting Vedas, is a higher class intellect. In every shlok, there is a critique over what Shankarachary said and the mistake he made in his definitions. Truth is that… Read more »
i am astonished. swami dayanand saraswati ji is doing the translation which is rpoving conventional hinduism a degraded culture and against vedas. i would have agreed to it if i hadn’t other translation. first thing is mantras is misplaced. mantra 9 and mantra 12 are exchanged. second thing is translation… Read more »

@Yash : and to consider an object that is जड to be consciousness (चेतना) is that state of mind or existence अविद्या or विद्या ?
this is just a pointer, hope you can deduce further and conclude if the translation is wrong.


@Yash : could you please explain avdiya and vidya encompass?


Some where, I read (on this site in comments) the Vedas & Upanishads are different. And followers of Veda detested upanishads & gave name Vedanta – Ved + Anta, or end of veda…
Previously I have idea that Vedanta is part of Vedas.. Please if anyone knows clear my doubt, thanks..

Thanks but unfortunatly I can’t read hindi. Hope there is an english version.


Hi Vijay/Raja,,

dont worry… here is the english version. http://sriisopanisad.com/1/en

Raja Krsnan

English version is available, but one must also use a sanskrit transliteration of the same, preferably in your mother tongue to get the correct pronunciation. I think the translation are available in most languages now.



Indian Agnostic

I have been taught a different interpretation of the same ..but this one sounds perfect at the worldly level


outstanding work! 🙂 wow
