I see Indian 99 trying to say that Buddha got his views on meditation, mindfulness etc from Upanishads. Buddha says he studied Vedas. Also there are many many references to Vedas in Buddhist scriptures. Never a mention of Upanishads. Upanishads was a development that occured as a response to Buddhism.

Vedic Brahmins knew old god based sacrificial system is not enough for expanding minds. They developed Upanishads but still kept the god in it.
