The Kena Upanishad is a collection of philosophical poems about Brahma, the unchanging, infinite universal spirit. Brahma is indeed proposed as the source of all-natural forces, which are represented by Gods. The message of Kena is that all action, including mental action, is possible through brahman. We may believe that we perform all actions through our sense organs or indriyas, but this is not the case. The sense organs are controlled by the mind, which is controlled by Brahman. As a result, Kena encourages us to use our minds to meditate on Brahman.
There are four sections in the Kena Upanishad. The first two have fourteen verses each. The following two are written in prose. They are concerned with an incident at the beginning of creation in which the gods of heaven were introduced to the mystery and glory of Brahman, whom they had never met before. They had previously believed that they were the most powerful beings. Brahman appeared in front of them as a Yaksha (a type of celestial being) to teach them a thing or two about humility.
