The vedic experience unfolds the process of Man's "becoming conscious", of discovering himself along the three words (human, cosmic and divine) and their mutual relationships. It represents an initiation path which, following the rhythm of life in the cosmos, takes out to the realization of the birth of real Life in ourselves. The hymns we find here are prayers. To be able to invocate, that is, to call upon something greater than ourselves and so break our own boundaries is the beginning of wisdom, the source of hope and the condition of joy.
