Book Description
About the Book:

This is an introductory essay on the Veda meant for the beginners. The book avoids pedantic discussions and presents in a rapid manner the core of the Vedic discovery. The Vedic Rishis have described the human journey, its difficulties and its battles as also the secret of the victory. The central issue is how to perfect our ordinary psychological faculties. The entire science of yoga owes its origin to the Vedic psychology. At present mankind is passing through a crisis which can be met only at the deepest psychological level. In this context, the Veda has contemporary relevance.

The author has presented the quintessence of the Vedic message in a few brief chapters, and the language is deliberately nontechincal. There is a growing thirst among young people who want to be introduced to the secret of the Veda and to understand how various developments of Indian culture are rooted in the Veda. The present book may serve to meet this need. The book also contains material, both in the main text and in the appendices, which may also be of interest to scholars.
