This anthology collects the most crucial texts of the Indian Sacred Scriptures ñ in all more than 500ñnewly translated into contemporary English. Dr. Panikkarís principle has been to select and place together texts so as to offer a selection of texts that cover the full range of ëThe Vedic Experienceí and at the same time to show how they manifest the universal rhythms of nature, history, and Man. Excerpts are taken from the oldest hymns, such as the Rig Veda; from the Brahmanas, the Aranyakas, or ëForest Treatises,í and finally the Upanishads, which represent the mystical and philosophical culmination of the Vedas. This is a book for meditation, for reading, public and private, as well as for thorough study at this wellspring of human wisdom. It should, moreover, facilitate that meeting of East and West so long desired and delayed, and now so imperative. Printed Pages: 974.
