From the Jacket:

The Upanishads include some of the most beloved and illuminating stories from the vast literature of India's vedic tradition. Adapted from the original text, these tales tell the story of enlightenment in simple, poetic language that will appeal to all. The power of beauty of vedic life unfolds in a variety of settings: a teacher and his student in a secluded forest ashram, a great seer meditating in a Himalayan retreat, and a proud king bowing to the wisdom of the poor.
