About the Book:
This new and exciting interpretation of the Vedas, with special reference to Asya Vamasya Sukta, Rig Veda, I.164, opens up a wholly novel approach to the understanding of the Vedic verses. The goal is to decode the richas and to find the true meaning, nature and significance of the texts. The Vedic richas form a code which when properly interpreted reveals a knowledge that may baffle the modern mind. It is hoped that more and more scholars will embark on this journey in the near future that will give a boost to Vedic studies by coming out of the web of Western translations and find the true meaning of the Vedas.
