Intro to Vedas

I am currently reading - An Introduction to Vedas – by Dr. Raj Kumar Pruthi.

An amazing book. Must read if you are interested in Vedic Science and Mathematics.
Clears a lot of myths and misinformation about the Vedas.

I urge my friends to get good books on Vedas for themselves AND their children.

Here is the book review I found on the internet:
What do you think about a culture which says to its gifted scientists, scholars and architects, 'Nothing for self all for society; which calculated the distance between the sun and the earth and declared that gross atoms are not inert; all this 4000 years ago through transcendental research?
And how much developed and structured will the social ethos of such a culture be? 

As most of the modern psychologists and scientists are discovering, it will definitely be better than the present society we are living in. Should we then not consider the call of, 'Back to Vedas' more seriously?

Vedas hold the solution to the problems plaguing the world today, not only about science but about a good living, about balance, mental health and stress-free life, about total contentment. If only we peruse through the vast world of knowledge contained in the Vedas, we will surely bless our lives with much abundance, satisfaction and peace.

Every shloka in the Vedas is a pearl of wisdom, which we always had and yet have forgotten.
This book is an attempt to bring about a change in the psyche, and highlight the wisdom as promised by the Vedas - the eternal source of wisdom. 

What is needed in today's knowledge-based world is a change towards wisdom-based world.


  1. Nice! I was looking for one to start into & this seems good. Also here are a few suggestions for you, Sadhguru's Mystic Wisdom & Aghora I, II, II Trilogy.
