The Upanishads have their very much etymological significance. Even the word 'Upanishad' has a variety of meanings. This word is coned in Sanskrit by joining two words: Upa (meaning close or quite near) + Nishada (meaning listening). It appears originally the Veda knowledge was explained and interpreted by the wise seers and their disciples used to sit near them to listen to their discourses. Subsequently, they must have come to the collected and produced in the tome's or book's form. So they got another meaning which means a book. But now their generally accepted wide-ranging meaning–like the Vedas–is knowledge, profound and deep. Since the Upanishads convey the 'last word' or the ultimate teachings of the Vedas they are also called the 'Vedanta'. The quest for truth is the common feature of all the Upanishads which makes their relevance eternal.
