That is full. This is full. From the full comes the full. Remove the full from the full and what remains? The full.

Thus begins the Isha Upanishad, one of the most powerful ancient books of faith. Mahatma Gandhi had said if all the Upanishads and all the other scriptures happened all of a sudden to be reduced to ashes and if only the first verse in the Isha Upanishad were left in our memory, Hinduism would live for ever. But this Upanishad also goes beyond all faith, all religion to help people look within and without themselves to answer questions that have existed and persisted from the dawn of civilization. That is the spirit in which Pritish Nandy has produced this sparkling new translation from the original Sanskrit and Sunandini Banerjee has illustrated it with her unique graphic art. While the text reveals man’s relationship with nature and God, the artworks explore it, alluding to creations both divine and human. Together they manifest the thread that connects all that exists, together they chronicle mankind’s search for the true meaning of life.
