I would be careful about reading Advaita Vedanta interpretations such as Shankara's as a commentary to the Upanishads, they are extremely reliant on Buddhist philosophy (Shankara is called a "cryptobuddhist" by most Hindus, and most scholars agree). If you want to read the Upanishads, work through them with editions and commentaries that aren't sectarian, or at least read an interpretation that is closer to the original meaning of the Upanishads, rather than Shankara's 9th century AD quasi-buddhism.

Guenonfag why do so many scholars and also most Hindus say Advaita is crypto-buddhism? I keep trying to remember your wise words, "it's not crypto-buddhism, they are BTFO, I refuted them," but there are so many. The vast majority of Hindus, Ramanuja, Madhva, any modern bhakti practitioners, even neovedantists who like Shankara all say that he copied everything from Nagarjuna and Mahayana. Even the book you recommended here >>17336119, Sharma, says that Shankara is a crypto-buddhist. It's modern scholarly consensus, even for the scholars you like, that Shankara was crypto-buddhist.

How can I keep your refutations firm in my mind? Is the trick to say "btfo" more? Or post more quotations about how Heisenberg praised vedanta once?
