Gods, Sages and Kings: Vedic Secrets of Ancient Civilization

Price : $34.75
ISBN # : 9788120810051
Author : David Frawley
pages: 396
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Motilal Banarsidass
Published : 2014

Gods, Sages and Kings presents a remarkable accumulation of evidence pointing to the existence of a common spiritual culture in the ancient world from which present civilization may be more of a decline than an advance. The book is based upon new interpretation of the ancient Vedic teachings of India, and brings out many new insights from this unique source often neglected and misinterpreted in the West. In addition, it discusses recent archaeological discoveries in India whose implications are now only beginning to emerge.

It reveals the geography of the ancient Vedic world, including the sacred Himalayan lands of the Soma. It shows the lineages of the Vedic kings and the realms that they ruled. It deciphers the ancient Vedic calendar and its sophisticated system of astronomy going back to before 4000 B.C. and uncovers the yogic practices of the ancient Vedic seers that appear to be behind all the religions of the World. It suggests that all the peoples of the ancient world may be related to the Vedic culture including those of Sumeria, Egypt, China, and the Americas. The book challenges the accepted views of the origins of civilizations in a profound way and thus causes the reader to re-examine what it means to be a human being.



Review 1 (3900 characters maximum): The book proposes the idea of an ancient Indian and Himalayan home for world civilization. The vedas find a new interpretation at the hand of the author... Written in a readable language...useful [for] serious thinkers on civilization".

Source: E.R. Sreekrishna Sarma, The Adyar Library, Bulletin, 1993



Review 2 (3900 characters maximum): The argument implicit in Gods, Sages and Kings is that Vedic culture through the great traditions of Hindus, Yoga, and other Eastern philosophies, is the continuation of a way of looking at life that is at least 8,000 years old"

Source: Richard Kenyon, Yoga International, Nov.-Dec.1991



Review 3 (3900 characters maximum): There is no doubt that this is a landmark book for our understanding of India. ...It helps us gain a radical shift in our perception of ancient Indian History. It gives us a totally different picture of Vedic civilization that what we are traditionally taught in history books.
