Swami Gambhirananda’s English translation of the Sanskrit commentaries is a boon to lovers of Upanishads lacking in Sanskrit knowledge.
The translation is faithful to the original The transliteration of Sanskrit texts is highly helpful. This book contains the translation of the four Upanishads viz. The book is highly useful and valuable. A must for anyone interested in Philosophy. Clear Sanskrit, full Commentary, and very good translation.
One person found this helpful. An invaluable tool for any serous student of the Upanishads. Really good read, simple and concise overview of number of Upanishads. Explains the contents in an easy to understand language. This is the Volume 1 of 2 of the first eight Upanisads.
Volume 1 covers the four Upanishads, Isa, Kena, Katha and Taittiriya and is meant for study, rather than easy reading. The fact is, the Upanishads are abstruse. The translator has “tried to be as literal and as true to the spirit and sequence of the sentences, as the English language would permit, without compromising comprehension. Let us look at the Katha Upanishad, Part 2, Canto 1, Verse 15 on page3rd Impression, “O Gautama, as pure water poured on pure water becomes verily the same, so also does become the Self of the man of knowledge who is given to deliberation on the Self.
Compare this verse to a highly readable version by Swami Prabhavananda, The Upanishads Breath of the Eternal on page 33, 3rd printing, “As pure water poured into pure water remains pure, so does the Self remain pure, O Nachiketa, uniting with Brahman.
The Sanskrit student might choose the Gambhirananda version because of the Sanskrit text, faithfulness to the sequence of the sentence, Sankara’s commentary and index in Sanskrit, while the rest of us might reach for the Prabhavananda version because it reads more like English literature, frequently paraphrases and doesn’t have cumbersome detail.
There is no wrong choice only what one is looking for. These books are a highly literal translation of the Upanishads that follow the Sanskrit closely. I will caution buyers that this book should not be your first read on Advaita I made that mistake. The commentary assumes you already know a good amount of Advaita philosophy.
I selected these books as my first read on Advaita Vedanta; it quickly became a frustrating process because I did not have any background understanding of the Absolute. For a time, this translation seemed undecipherable, that is, until I gained a deeper background understanding.
Before reading this, I would highly recommend Shankara’s “Crest Jewel of Discrimination” by Vedanta press in addition to Atmabodha by the Ramakrishna-Vivekananda center. These texts give a detailed explanation of what the Absolute is, and will allow the Upanishads to be a gem of spiritual understanding. Of all the translations I’ve read – and that’s quite a few – this translation best reflects the structure, rhythym, and order of meaning as it exists in the original Sanskrit.
So many translations “help” the original by straightening out statements, which sometimes makes them easier to understand on first encountering them, but in the end, hides the complexity and subtlety woven into the original. Gambhirananda’s language, while not as accessible as some, is the “must have” if you want to study these Upanishads seriously.
