108 Upanishads with Sanskrit Commentary of Upanishad Brahma Yogin

Upanishad Brahmayogin is the cognomen of Ramachandrendra Sarasvati, a great sannyasin and Advaitin who is credited with having written commentaries on all 108 upanishads of the Muktika canon. His works have been translated and published by the Adyar Library. He was born sivarama of Vadhula gotra in Brahmapuram, a village on the river Palar. This would date to the middle of the 18th century, based on tales of his association, as an older contemporary, with Tyagaraja (1767 1847 CE).
His sanyasa name was Ramachandrendra, but he came to be known for his scholarship by names such as Upanishad brahma yogi, Upanishad brahmendra and Upanishad brahman. His commentaries on all 108 upanishads of the Muktika canon were the fulfilment of a wish of his father Sivakamesvara. Besides these, he was also the author of independent works such as the Paramadvaita siddhanta paribhasa and the Upeya nama viveka. A prolific author, he annotated the colophons of each of his works with the number of granthas contained in it, presumably to prevent interpolation. On this basis, his works amount to over 45,000 granthas.

Muktika Upanishad gives the list of 108 Upanishads. It is given as the teaching of the Divine Incarnation Sri Rama to his devotee Hanuman. It mentions the list in two places. In the first section (khanda) of adhyaya 1, verses 30 39, the 108 names are given in a metrical form. In the first adhy aya, second section (khanda), verses 1 5, is given the subsets of these Upanishads associated with the five Ved as namely Rigveda (10), Shukla Yajurveda (19), Krishna Yajurveda (32), Samaveda (16) and Atharvaveda (31). The text of Muktika Upanishad can be found in the book, “Samanya Vedanta Upanishads” published by Adyar Library, Adyar, Chennai.
