Readings in Vedic Literature provides a firsthand experience of India's timeless wisdom. Along with concise essays, the book includes the entire Bhagavad-gita and illuminating excerpts from the Puranas and Upanisads. In this way the reader can discover the tradition for himself.
“Readers, be of good cheer. To those of you who have surveyed in confusion the trackless path of Indian philosophy, this volume offers hope and respite. You are holding in your hands a reasonable and highly readable account of the particulars of Vedic thought. … Read and find enlightenment.”
