About the Book

This book is an English translation of original Odia work, titled Vaidika Cetanna Eka Darsanika Vicara by Professor Dr. Ganeswar Misra (b.1917-d.1985). The Odia work was prepared in 1984, when Professor Misra was a Senior Fellow of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research. It resulted from Professor Misra's reading of the Vedas in original. This English translation brings to us one of the rare treatments of the Vedas, where it is presented purely as a discourse on knowledge (as the word Veda' ought to imply). The translator hopes to open this discourse to a global audience of students and scholars of the Vedas, beginning with the first question that the Vedic sages tried to tackle, that is the question about the distinctive nature and methods of knowledge. This book draws upon the universal ideas of the Vedic sages, applicable in any part of the universe, and for the whole of the human society. As their truths are independent of any individual's perception, but are in accordance with the nature of perception itself, Vedic mantras are called person-neutral. The Vedas do not recognize any individual's primacy. No one, neither God, nor Creator, nor a great person deputed by Him, has pronounced the Vedas.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
