"The Upanishads," the earliest of which were composed in Sanskrit between 800 and 400 bce by sages and poets, form part of the "Vedas" - the sacred and ancient scriptures that are the basis of the Hindu religion. Each Upanishad, or lesson, takes up a theme ranging from the attainment of spiritual bliss to karma and rebirth, and collectively they are meditations on life, death and immortality.
