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.

Summary

Thousands of years ago, self-realized masters compiled their direct experiences and inner wisdom in the form of the Vedas. This presentation gives you the key to make the universal, non-sectarian teachings of these ancient scriptures an integral part of your life.

Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, explains how the essence of the Vedas directs you to awaken your own inner fire and become a light to yourself and the worlds, and how to live a life of harmony and happiness.

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.

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!
