The Upaniṣads are among the most sacred foundational scriptures in the Hindu religion. Composed from 800 BCE onward and making up part of the larger Vedic corpus, they offer the reader "knowledge lessons" on life, death, and immortality. While they are essential to understanding Hinduism and Asian religions more generally, their complexities make them almost impenetrable to anyone but serious scholars of Sanskrit and ancient Indian culture. This book is divided into five parts: Composition, authorship, and transmission of the Upaniṣads; The historical, cultural, and religious background of the Upaniṣads; Religion and philosophy in the Upaniṣads; The classical Upaniṣads; The later Upaniṣads. The chapters cover critical issues such as the origins of the Upaniṣads, authorship, and redaction as well as exploring the broad religious and philosophical themes within the texts. The guide analyses each of the Upaniṣads separately, unpacking their contextual relevance and explaining difficult terms and concepts. The Upaniṣads: A Complete Guide is a unique and valuable reference source for undergraduate religious studies, history, and philosophy students and researchers who want to learn more about these foundational sacred texts and the religious lessons in the Hindu tradition.

Im hinduistischen Indien ist neben Oralität auch Sonalität seit frühester Zeit von hoher kultureller Wertigkeit. Sie prägt den Umgang mit Texten, inspiriert eigene Riten, Modelle kosmischer Ordnung, abstrakte Formelsprachen und dient der Stimulierung und Versinnlichung religiöser Gefühle. Auf der Basis von Klangwahrnehmung und -deutung entwickeln die Autoren eine unorthodoxe Kulturgeschichte Indiens und thematisieren einen wichtigen, meist vernachlässigten Aspekt gelebter Religiosität. Ein stimulierender Beitrag zu kulturellen Wahrnehmungssystemen, der auch in die Debatte zu Oralität und Literalität neue Aspekte einbringt.
