The word "Upanishad" consists of three words""Upa" means "near", "ni" means "down" and "shad" means "be seated". "Upanishad" means, "be seated at the feet of the Guru to receive the teaching".

The Upanishads constitute what we call the Vedanta (Veda-anta), the end of the Vedas.

Upanishad exceeds 1000 in number. But only few are available today. Muktikopanishad gives a list of 108 upanishads.
