Wikipedia says the following 13 Upanishads are the Mukhya Upanishads:

  • Isha Upanishad
  • Kena Upanishad
  • Kaṭha Upanishad
  • Praṣna Upanishad
  • Muṇḍaka Upanishad
  • Māṇḍūkya Upanishad
  • Taittirīya Upanishad
  • Aitareya Upanishad
  • Chāndogya Upanishad
  • Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upanishad
  • Shvetashvatara Upanishad
  • Kaushitaki Upanishad
  • Maitri Upanishad

My question is, how many verses are there in all the Mukhya Upanishads in total?

  • 3
    All of them are available to read at Sanskritdocuments. So, one can visit each and then count no. of verse and then add/sum all. – Paṇḍyā Feb 14 at 14:23

    This is basically a counting problem or something else is there in it? – Rickross Feb 14 at 14:53

    Is there any special reason for asking number of verses in all Mukhya Upanishads? – The Destroyer Feb 14 at 16:54
