4.0 out of 5 stars this book is excellent material for starters 1 November 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Though a review, this book is excellent material for starters .. who want to know what Vedic literature is all about. It gives insight on Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas , Bhagvad Geeta, and talks more on Shrimad Bhagavatam as crux of Vedic knowledge. ( It is said Ved Vyasa,himself not satisfied with all his compilations of Veda / Upanishads, was adviced by his Spiritual Guru Narada Muni to write what he felt after self realization of Absolute Truth..thats when Bhagavatam/ Bhagavat Purana/ Vedanta came,as his best creation.)
This book tells, in chronology, about the Sages from Ashoka era onwards on what they wrote/ commented and how they influenced the understanding on Vedic knowledge. Stories on Sages Shankarachrya ( 509-477 BC),Ramanuja (1017-1137),Madhavacharya (1239-1319), Vallabhacharya ( 1478-1530 ), Chaitanya MahaPrabhu (1486-1534)keeps one intrigued and gives parallel details of medieval India which many of us dont know.
Its an interesting read before moving on to serious stuff or books like Bhagvad Geeta or Bhagavatam itself. Before I do so, want to read few more of this author's other books. He keeps things simple as much as possible.. good for beginners.
