In this audio, famed spiritual leader Rajmani Tigunait gives an overview of the Vedas - their history and essence. Tigunait's lecturing style is energetic, and his voice is lively and steady. He begins this audio by contextualizing the Vedas in history, explaining that they are integral to the spiritual and cultural identity of India. His lecture broadens to include a more general explanation of Vedic wisdom, making the point that the Vedas are mother of all spiritual traditions, and therefore relevant to all who wish to deepen their spiritual lives. Tigunait's lecture will not only give listeners a better sense of these ancient and complicated philosophies, but will encourage listeners to incorporate Vedic practices in their daily lives to gain greater peace, harmony, and happiness.

Wonderful!

My only complaint is that we should've gotten a gist of the other 3 vedas as well, just like we did for the Rig Veda. Other than that, perfection!

Very crisp brief introduction of Vedas

Good. Inspiring. Not very elaborate. Appreciate perspective of writer. May not be very convincing but addressed fundamentals of leadership with vedic point of view.

A beautiful message conveyed so powerfully

The spirit of Vedas so misunderstood by us was explained beautifully by Pandit Rajmani. I recommend this to be a must listen for all young people seeking guidance in their life be it material or spiritual. I am so happy I came across this

Simple and persuasive message

The Spirit of the Vedas message is so simple that humanity misses it. Once you listen to it everyone will agree with it, yet 99% of humans miss it and fail to act on it. This lecture reminds you of this basic message. It is forcefully presented. There is repetition but it seems deliberately designed to reemphasize certain parts of the message. It is recommended for those who would like to “wake up”. :-)

Introduction to the Vedas for a Catholic

I bought this book as a (croatian) catholic priest candidate and theology student, seeking for a possible introduction to the vedic literature. The "lesson" is not a theological/scientifical introduction; it's more of a spiritual/practical intro. Nevertheless, I found it clear and very interesting for my first incounter with this world, exceptially as it seemed not to be "sectic", but really trying to tell something about the vedism… I gave the four stars to the content only because I could not accept from my christian/theological point of view some considerations of christianity, but that is fully understandable, since the autor is not a christian (theologian).

Best hour speech ever!

So many nuggets of wisdom and knowledge and such a short speech. Such a great overview that truly captures the spirit of The Vedas very concisely. Jam-packed of life-changing thoughts which if everyone followed, the world would truly be a better place!

Gives simplicity to the vedas

Clearly communicated message about the vedas that opens those interested to learn and practice more. The vedas are for everyone, yet hardly anyone knows about them. They are for all humanity, not just for hindu's and guru's. Good scene setting and powerful simple messages.
