About Hindu Scriptures:
This book provides an insight into the inspiration and development of one of the oldest of living religions; Hinduism. It is a wonderful journey starting from the Vedic simplicity illuminated by intuitive experience ['Truth is one: (though) the wise call it by various names' (Rigveda I 164.46)] to the deepened and widened meditations of the Upanishads shifting the keener spiritual longing to the 'Self' from the outside world; finally to the expounding of the harmony between diverse approaches to the Reality through the paths of knowledge, love, righteousness and detached living of the Bhagavadgita. The book includes an introduction by Rabindranath Tagore.
