This is the twelfth volume in the series of the collected works of Ananda K Coomaraswamy on some aspects of Vedic text as one integrated perception.
Published by Indira Gandhi National centre for the Arts Trust these collection of essays by Coomaraswamy are an exposition of Vedas by means of a translation and commentary in which the resources of other forms of the universal traditions are taken for granted. He has used the resources of Vedic and Christian scriptures side by side.
Coomaraswamy has tried to make accurate, evocative translations of Vedic and Upanisadic texts through the use of scholastic language and composite words.These translations are followed by copious notes covering related passages from other texts and translations in order to bring out a fuller meaning of the process of creation.
This volume will sure open up a new vista of interpreting the Vedic lore so that we can reintegrate our own fuller being with the fuller manifestation of the cosmic order in which resides the Truth of Truths.
