Upanishads often quote verses from the Rig Veda to support their declarations of spiritual knowledge. In the Upanishads the spiritual meanings of the Vedic texts are brought out and emphasized in their own right. More specifically the Upanishads are a development from the Sama Veda and continue to emphasize the ecstasy and the realization of the revealed knowledge of the Vedas. Some Upanishadic teachings can be found in the Atharva Veda as well. Most Upanishadic ideas are found in the Rig Veda, though it follows a different type of expression. 

The classical Upanishads are the Brihadaranyaka, Chandogya, Isha, Aitareya, Taittiriya, Katha, Prashna, Kena, Mundaka, Mandukya, Shwetasavatara. These were given commentaries by great philosopher Shankara many centuries later. Other early Upanishads are the Kaushitaki, Mahanaryana, Maitri, Bashkala, Arsheya, Chagala, Shaunaka, Nilarudra. Probably all of these Upanishads and some others as well pre-Buddhist in nature. Upanishads continued to be written into fairly recent times and now several hundred exist. The Bhagavad Gita of Sri Krishna is considered by many to be an Upanishad as it is a summary of their teachings.
