Prasna, Upanishads

The Prashna Upanishad is one of the earlier, “primary” Upanishads. It figures as number 4 in the Muktika canon of 108 Upanishads. In Sanskrit, “Prashna” means question. This text consists of six questions and their answers, hence the name. Except the first and the last questions, all other questions are actually a group of smaller sub-questions.
