This book portrays the Hindu view of life in its totality-Its origin, its growth, its decay, its eternity. It surveys the different schools of thought in East and West-beginning with human belief in the Unseen, down to religious rites and the birth of materialism. It analyses over 500 ancient texts (each translated into lucid prose) to justify the Hindu cults of immortality, karma, transmigration of souls and image-worship. It underlines the fundamentals of physical science as found delineated in the early Vedic texts, and projects the Hindu concept of cosmic and bio-consciousness, their relation to Space-Time Continuum and the Supreme. Late Shyam Ghosh had a deep study of Hindu Sastras. He translated several ancient texts including a few relating to yoga. His expose of Patanjala Yogasutra is widely commended. His other published books are The Original Yoga (1989, 1999) and the Rgveda for the Layman (Satasuktaparidarsanam). Printed Pages: 288.
