Quotes on Upanishads by Raimundo Panikkar



The Upanishads proffer an invitation to a higher life of contemplation, to the enormous and risky adventure of finding the Lord, who can neither be spoken of nor identified with any objective or subjective reality.... The Upanishads attempt to resolve the dilemma by propounding the way of self-realization, the personal discovery of the hidden treasure. The Lord is within and without, personal and impersonal, moving and unmoving, ‘Being and Non-being.’ He is the Lord precisely because he is not limited by any one pair of opposites.
