Adhyatma Upanishad also acts as a medium to explain the importance of a teacher (Guru). It says that a person can control his thoughts, life and emotions once he gets in touch with the right Guru. It also says that a person can be free from all the worldly matters and attain salvation only if he is being imparted good knowledge by his Guru.

If a person stays in touch with a Guru, he is relieved of all sins and tries to do some good in and with his life. He also starts staying in good company. He feels as if he is close to Lord Brahma. Adhyatma Upanishad talks about the soul and Lord Brahma being as one. This conjunction has been called Aatmanubhuti.

Upanishads are the conversations between a Guru and a Seeker. Adhyatma Upanishad is part of that. I just tried to put the essence of Adhyatma Upanishad and hope it will help you to quench your thirst of spiritual quest.

Here it goes

This body is made of five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether. An eternal which is soul lives inside the cavity of the heart. It lives inside the earth, but the earth doesnt know it; it lives in all the elements but no elements are aware of it.

The mind is also the body of the soul, but the mind isnt aware of it; likewise the intellect and the ego are the body of the soul, but they are not aware of it.

Moreover the birth and death are also the body of it, but they are not aware of it.

[Here, I would like to correlate one thing: as the soul leaves the physical body and it is named as death (but it remains with mental body). Later on when soul goes higher and higher in upper dimensions, it has to leave the mental body also. Whatever is ...more
