The Isha or īśa upanisad, also known as the Ishopanishad or isavasya upanisad, is one of the principal upanishad and is part of Yajur Veda. Though small in size with only 18 verses, Isopanishad verses has deep meaning and they explore variety of topics from philosophy and religion to metaphysics. 

The Upanishad derives its name Isha as its verses describes the supreme being (isha in sanskrit means the supreme or the one who governs). The first word of its first verse start with isavasya and hence it is also known as isavasya upanishad.

Mahatma Gandhi was so fascinated by ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥ which means "This world is Whole. That World is Whole. From Whole comes the Whole. If you take away Whole from Whole, what remains is Whole" that he remarked, "If all the Upanishads and all the other scriptures be reduced to ashes, and if only the first verse in the Ishopanishad were left in the memory of the Hindus, Hinduism would live for ever."

Here, we have presented Isha Upanishad with two of Yogeshwarji's books 1. Upanishad no amar varaso, which contains verse by verse explanation and his comments and 2. Dus Upanishad (translation in Gujarati poem).
