The Upaniṣads are among the most sacred foundational scriptures in the Hindu religion. Composed from BCE onwards and making up part of the larger Vedic corpus, they offer the reader "knowledge lessons" on life, death, and immortality.

In this way different systems of Vedānta arose, like Advaita, Viśiṣtādvaita, Dvaita, Śaiva etc. Most of the Ācāryas wrote commentataries on the important Upaniṣads in accordance with their systems of philosophy. The next authority for our religion is the Dharma Śāstras. They are of two categories, the Sūtras and the Smṛtis.   The Upanishads Book The Upanishads by Sri Aurobindo contains his final translations of and commentaries on the Isha and Kena, his final translations of the Mundaka and Katha Upanishads, and a commentary on part of the Taittiriya Upanishad.   Upaniṣads represent philosophical postulations either extracted from these three or compiled independently. Of the eleven Principal Upaniṣads, one (Īśa Upaniṣad) is part of a Samhita (Śukla Yajurveda), four (Bṛhadāraṇyaka, Chāndogya, Kaṭha, Kena) are parts of Brāhmaṇas and two (Aitareya, Taittirīya) are parts of Āraṇyakas. There are said to be Śaiva, Vaiṣṇava, and Śākta Upaniṣads favouring one or another doctrine. We must, however, in all cases distinguish between what a School says of itself and what others say of it.
