Description

This book is intended to answer two questions, viz., (1) What is the fundamental teaching of the Vedas ? (2) What light does that teaching throw on the origin and development of Religion?

The book is a sincere attempt to bring to light the account of the teaching of Vedas. The work, written in simple languages understandable to common readers, reveals the vedic doctrine as clearly as possible.

Besides, the book also examines the bearing of Vedic teaching on the profoundly interesting subject of the Origin and Development of Religion in general.
