    This is an introductory book on the Veda meant for the beginners. The book

    avoids pedantic discussions and presents in a rapid manner the core of the

    Vedic discovery. The Vedic Rishis have described the human journey, its

    difficulties and its battles as also the secret of the victory. The central

    issue is how to perfect our ordinary psychological faculties. The entire

    science of yoga owes its origin to the Vedic psychology. At present mankind

    is passing through a crisis which can be met only at the deepest

    psychological level. In this context, the Veda has contemporary relevance.

    The author has presented the quintessence of the Vedic message in a few

    brief chapters, and the language is deliberately non-technical. There is a

    growing thirst among young people who want to be introduced to the secret

    of the Veda and to understand how various developments of Indian culture

    are rooted in the Veda. The present book may serve to meet this need. The

    book also contains material, both in the main text and in the appendices,

    which may also be of interest to scholars.
