A wonderful book, 14 April 2009
Its always difficult to get really good Hindu texts especially the Vedas. This book manages to strike the right balance. There are translated verses from the Vedas grouped under themes such as devotion, wisdom, creation and noble deeds. The verses are interspersed with images of nature and India.
The book contains hymns on the sciences covering astromomy, medicine, physics and chemistry. At the back of the book are all the hymns in the original sanskrit.
In all the book is 546 pages long and is the best Hindu text I have read as yet. There is always something here to provide inspiration and uplift.
I can thoroughly recommend this title.
