Vedas 5 - The Unquestionable Upanishads - Poem by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
Fountainhead of all spiritual learning,
Featuring the essential knowledge,
Feast for the souls that seek
Finesse in thought, word and deed,
Fabulous verses of profound thoughts.
They are called the Upanishads!
The Rishi-Munis of the ancient India
Thirsty for elevating their minds with
Theological and philosophical ideas
Treated the scriptures with awe and reverence.
Upanishads are unquestionable outpourings,
Undeniably, known too, as Vedanta.
Understanding them requires much patience,
Unwavering devotion to assimilate their teachings,
Unfolding their beauty with deep study and meditation.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
In my Vedas-4 poem, i have explained the meaning of Vedanta. In my next poem i.e. Vedas -6, i shall explain the literal meaning of Upanishads. It is interesting to note that the same scripture is referred to by two names with different meanings. But in the course of our journey of learning the Vedas, it will become clear that both the meanings are linked closely with each other.
