Publisher's Summary

Three thousand years ago, deep inside the forests of India, a great 'thought- revolution' was brewing. In those forest labs, the brightest scientist-philosophers contemplated the universe and reflected upon the already-ancient texts called the Vedas, gaining some startling insights into questions that we still have no watertight answers to, like: 

  • What is the universe made of? 
  • How do I know I'm looking at a tree when I see one? 
  • Who am I? My body, my mind, my intelligence, my emotions, or NOTA? And where did they put those explosive findings? 

In a sprawling body of goose-bumpy, thought-provoking and fascinating oral literature called the Upanishads! 

Intimidated? Don't be! For this joyful, fun guide to some of India's most enduring and secular wisdoms, reinterpreted for first-time explorers by author Roopa Pai, is guaranteed to keep you listening. Why haven't you checked it out yet? 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

How easy to grasp the knowledge

The topic so vast and complex and the way it's being presented was extraordinary. The part of having co relations with the other part of the world was so close and clear.
