What are the main themes of Isavasya Upanishad?

Isavasya Upanishad is known also as Isa Upanishad. The main problem discussed in it is the question of reconciling human life and activity with the monistic standpoint of the Vedantic times. It neither supports extreme illusionism nor anti-pragmatism, although Isha Upanishad tries to reconcile the uncompromising extremes.

The main themes of Isavasya Upanishad are:

  • Conscious Lord and the Phenomenal Nature
  • Renunciation and Enjoyment
  • Action in Nature and Freedom of the Soul
  • The One stable Brahman and the multiple Manifestations
  • Being and Becoming
  • TheActive Lord and the Indifferent Akshara Brahman
  • Vidya and Avidya
  • Works and Knowledge
