Description

The account extends from centuries of which there is no historical record to the recent Sri Ramakrsna revival of the ancient Vedanta. This book brings together in one volume the spiritual magnificence of the sacred books such as the Vedas, the Upanishads, and the Bhagavad Gita, three ancient Indian scriptures which are the foundation of the Hindu spiritual heritage.

In connection with each of the subjects taken up the author supplies sufficient quotation from the texts concerned, as incidental illustration and sometimes also as appended passages, to give body and force to the exposition. His approach is clear and practical, and at the same time profound and richly poetic. This book takes the reader on a journey through the wisdom enshrined in these celebrated classics. The author has ably entered into the these ancient Indian treasure-houses of spirituality and offer their ancient wisdom to the modern spiritual seeker.
