Upanishads: Lead Me

From the unreal, lead me to the real.

From darkness, lead me to light.

From death, lead me to immortality.

Upanishads are part of the Vedas, the oldest sacred texts in Hinduism. The Upanishads are considered divinely inspired poetic liturgies, discussing meditation, the nature of reality, and philosophy. The texts vary in origin, dating from as far back as the seventh-century B.C.E. to the medieval or early modern period.
