Upanishads do not come from usual imagination

Upanishads come not from usual imagination,
but from serious inner work
involving deep thought, contemplation, discussion, meditation.

More awakened than woke,
more liberated than liberal,
their authors deserve to be read.
If not for religious reasons,
then for intellectual integrity.
