How can I read Vedas easily
What is the Best Way to Learn the Upanishads for Beginners, and in What Order? [Duplicate]
Well I can only tell about the method that helped me. There could be other ways too. It's a subjective choice. It might or might not help you.
As I did so, I realized that reading the Upanishads directly was not very helpful straight away. The Upanishads are relatively difficult to understand for a newcomer. But the best part is that the concept of the Upanishads is explained in an organized way to Vedantins later, which is more accessible to newbies. So my roadmap was this -
First, read the central concept of the Upanishads. I've read this book. Advaita Vedanta: a philosophical reconstruction by Eliot Deutsch. This book is exceptionally well organized and provides a brief introduction to the subject. He was Professor Emeritus at the University of Hawaii in Indian Philosophy.

Next, I read the Upanishads with commentaries. Without comment it would be impossible to make anything meaningful out of it. One of the best translations and commentaries on all the major Upanishads is "The Major Upanishads" by Prof. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was Professor of Eastern Religion and Ethics at Oxford University. When it comes to the order of the Upanishads, read the shortest Start with Isha Upanishad Link - The Most Important Upanishads
Next, I would suggest that you read the "Philosophy of the Upanishads" written by Paul Deussen, professor of philosophy. This book is long, but explains the concepts in detail. It's one of the classics. You can get the book from this link - The Philosophy of the Upanishads
