Explanation

  • Ishavasya Upanishad is strongly based on advaita philosophy that is follows non-dualism, God exists everywhere; supreme soul and individual soul are same.

  • Isha Upanishad explains the concepts of Jnana Nishta; Path of self-knowledge and Karma Nishta; path of right action.

  • Vidya and Avidya are two important concepts of Isha Upanishad. Vidya meant “knowledge” and Avidya meant “ignorance”.

  • By Avidya, fulfilled man passes beyond death, meant state of mortality and bound to dualism of joy and sorrow, pleasure and suffering, good and evil.

  • By Vidya, one can attain immortality. That is realization of oneself and with supreme soul or Brahman. This is final goal of man.

  • Dana meant charity and Tapa meant austerity.
