Title: L'Upaniṣad del cuore di Rudra: alcune considerazioni
Authors: Pellegrini, Gianni
Issue Date: 2010
Publisher: Padova, Studio Editoriale Gordini
Abstract: This article is meant to give an introductory glance at the traditional point of view regarding the actual position of the so-called minor or later Upaniṣads. The starting point is to delineate what is, for an Indian writer, an Upaniṣad and what is its use and who are the readers addressed by. To accomplish this rask are offered some traditional explanations of the term, mostly related to the Advaita Vedānta standpoint, trying to underline how the later commentarial tradition look at the so-called Śaiva Upaniṣad. These kinds of text, even if sensibly coloured with the shadows of sectarian schools, bearing an analogous message, recognize their roots in the early Upaniṣad. The second part of the article consists in an annoted translation of a short saivite text, the Rudrahṛdaya Upaniṣad [The Upaniṣad of the heart of Rudra].
