Itihasa (Ramayana and Mahabharata) and Purana are collectively called the fifth Veda. ‘Essence of the Fifth Veda’ builds on the narration of Ramayana and Mahabharata with over 265 related geographical locations identifiable even today. This fast-paced book blends many lesser-known legends like God Hanuman carrying a mountain with life-saving herbs not once but twice; and Maya Sita’s relation with Sita and God Tirupati Balaji.
Mahabharata beautifully unfolds with the Devas and Asuras reincarnating on planet Earth to a series of forest exiles of the Pandavas. The Mahabharata as a World War is vividly described with tribes like the Turkic-Greeks and Chinese siding with the Kauravas. Dharma is subtle but always wins!
The many exciting miracles of God Krishna should arouse awe and Bhakti in your heart. The book also explains in simple language the path of moksha as beautifully recited in Yoga Vasishtha, Mahabharata and the eternal Bhagavad Geeta.
