The Upanishads

Association with Vedas

All Upanishads are associated with one of the four Vedas—Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda (there are two primary versions or Samhitas of the Yajurveda: Shukla Yajurveda, Krishna Yajurveda), and Atharvaveda. The Muktikā Upanishad's list of 108 Upanishads groups the first 10 as mukhya, 21 as Sāmānya Vedānta, 23 as Sannyāsa, 14 as Vaishnava, 14 as Shaiva, 9 as Shakta and 17 as Yoga.[64] The 108 Upanishads as recorded in the Muktikā are shown in the table below.[65][66] The mukhya Upanishads are highlighted.
