Are all 108 Upanishads considered shruti? Or is it just the Mukhya Upanishads that are considered shruti?

  • Not sure what characterstics become a factor to be called , that it belongs to medival era, etc. The answer in the link says that, just because a portion of Muktikopanishad is quoted in Panchdashi , the authenticity of it should not be suspected. Consequently the list of upanishads occuring in Muktikopanishad, are deemed to be shruti, bcos swami Vidyaranya has ack. the same.Hence only thru a commentary or a quote by a seer, it possible to discover / interpret .

  • I don't consider minor Upaniṣads to be śruti. I am no authority to say that. But mukhya upaniṣads have a special status among the 108 upaniṣads of muktikā canon.
