        The Vedic texts of India provide some of the highest levels of spiritual knowledge known to man. But it is not just one book, it is a complete library that offers explanations of many aspects of spiritual development, and of the Absolute Truth, or God. These also describe the processes by which a person can directly perceive and attain the Supreme and enter the spiritual realm.

        This book shows how these many texts fit together, their divisions, the supplements, what information they contain, and their philosophical conclusions. The contents of this book include:

        Understanding the Spiritual Truths in Vedic Literature;

        If You are New to the Study of Vedic Culture;

        The Four Primary Vedas;

        The Brahmanas and Aranyakas;

        The Upanishads;

        The Upa-Vedas and Vedangas;

        The Sutras and Supplements;

        The Smritis;

        The Vedanta and Vedanta-Sutras;

        The Itihasas;
