Atharvanopanishad is published in Kannada & Sanskrit PDF format
The seventh is the Atharvanopanishad > The way in which Archaya Madhwa lays bare the very heart of this Upanishad which discusses both the spiritual and Wordly knowledge is unparallelled.
There are no two separate branches of books dealing with spiritual knowledge and secular knowledge as such. In a way, every kind of knowledge is spiritual, as well as secular, depending on our mindset. If we use the Vedas to understand the spirit of the Universe, it becomes a spiritual pursuit. If on the other hand we use it to our selfish ends, it becomes secular or worldly.
This Upanishad belongs to Atharvaveda. The Supreme God with the designation of Aksara is the deity for this Upanishad. Chaturmukhabrahma, Atharva, Angira, Bharadvaja, Angirasa, and Saunaka are the sages. The metres employed viz. Anustup etc. could be ascertained by counting the syllables.
The central teaching of this Upanishad is to give an exposition of the nature of God designated as Aksara, For this purpose, the nature of two levels of knowledge viz, higher and lower i.e. Paravidya and Aparavidya is explained. The purpose of Karmanusthana, the process of creation, the status of the liberated soul are also discussed in this Upanishad.
