Have you seen the Vedas ? While almost everyone in Europe, where a Christian majority in the population exists, has seen the Bible and almost everyone in the Middle East, where a Muslim majority exists, has seen the Koran. It is shameful that very few people in India, especially Hindus, have seen, let alone studied the holy Vedas. This book takes one to that core of Indian Philosophy, viz., theVedas, the essential basis of why Indian culture has lasted for thousands of years amidst numerous invasions and injustices.
Primarily, this treatise reveals that values were inherently associated with Indian philosophy for thousands of years, through a detailed critical analysis of the Four Purusarthas that are explicit in the Vedas Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksa. Some Western Indologists and Leftist interpreters believed that the Vedas, being primitive, do not contain the moral and spiritual values. The author of this treatise on Vedic Axiology (Vedic Philosophy of Values) has demonstrated that the seeds of the Indian Philosophy of values can be found even in the Mantra portions of the Vedas Clearly, Indian Philosophy is not mere intellectual sport; it has a direct connection with our everyday lives and can guide us as individuals, and a society, in the proper direction.
