Holy Vedas: Wisdom from the Sacred Teachings of Hinduism (Paperback)
The Holy Vedas are the oldest and most respected scriptural Hindu writings. They were passed down orally for generations before being written in Sanskrit in 1500 BCE.
This book contains the English translation of all four Vedas: Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Atharva Veda, and Sam Veda. These collections feature poetry, hymns, prayers, and religious thought.
The hymns impart a deep understanding of Indian mythology and culture and are thus an enchanting introduction to Hinduism. The Rig Veda provides a detailed description of the Indian gods.
Friedrich Max M ller was a founding figure of Vedic studies in Europe. He believed that a study of the records of Vedic civilization was essential to understand the development of European faiths. To accomplish this, he studied and translated the Rig Veda into English in order to preserve the spirit of the original Sanskrit mantras.
