Description
About the Book

This book entitled Atmagatividya is a close sequal to my book on Vedic Concept of Atman which has been recently published. In these two books taken together, I have fairly covered all aspects of Vedic concept of Atman at the Adhidaivika and Adhyatmika levels. However I am well aware that a few important topics like Pranava concept, the Unified Theory of the Vedic seers etc. which I should have dealt with in the former of these two books, have been left out. I shall cover them in my next book on Bhagavad Gita.

About the Author

Seventy years old Dr. A. S. Ramnathan is a scientist by career. He retired as Deputy Director General of Metereology, Government of India. He worked as a Research fellow of India. National Science Academy for a few years.

Dr. Ramanathan has made a thorough study of Indian scriptures like Vedas. Gita, Philosophical works of all great Acharyas and great Sanskrit epics.

About fifteen years ago he came across the works of Pandit Madhu Sudan Ojha and Pandit Moti Lal Shastri on Vedas. He came to Jaipur and devoted lot of time to study them. He came to the conclusion that both the scholars had done in the past. Dr. Ramanathan goes to the extent of saying the Pandit Madhu Sudan Ojha was the greatest scholars and is still doing. He is completely dedicated to Vedic works.

For, the past few years he has been writing in English on Ojha’s works. He thinks that the works of Ojha must come to the notice of world scientists and scholars because Ojha has highlighted the scientific aspect of Vedas which deals with the creative process of the universe and evolution. Never before this kind of work was done. Dr Ramanathan firmly believes that Ojha’s work can contribute a lot to the scientific understanding of the Vedas and can lead to more organized studies and research today.

This is the fourth publication of the author. Earlier he has published three books “Weather Science in Ancient India” “What is Veda” and “Vedic Concept of Soma” These days he is working on :Atma Gati”

Dr. Ramanathan is also interested in guiding researchers who wants to go deep into Vedic Science. He thinks, it is high time we unearth this knowledge and propagate it all over the world.

Foreword

Atmagatividya forms an important section of Pandit Madhusudan Ojha’s writings on Brahmvigyan. Pandit Motilal Shastri, his principal disciple wrote under one main title “Shraddha Vigyan. Atmagativigyanopanisad is the subtitle of fourth and last volume of this work. It deals with not only Atmagati but also many of its material aspects and forms.

Atman as such has no form or visible shape. Many times in Vedic literature it is said to be indescribable (anirvacaniya). It is said to be nirakara, akhanda, nirvisesa, visvatita etc. Actually we are not concerned with that Atmã in this book. We are concerned here with the Atman which functions in the human body and is therefore a confined Atma.

In its life-long association with the human body, Atmã develops some characteristics. These are known as Bhavanas and Prarabdha Karmas. After death, when the body is cre- mated every physical element of the body vanishes but the prarabdha karmas remain and they form the basis of another life after death.

Scientists all over the world are deeply interested in life after death. They want to trace the origin of life also. Vedic concept of life is very scientific. This book deals with life after death but Prarabdha Karmas can also provide some knowledge of life or how the life likes form. Proper interpretation of Bhagavad Gita and thorough study of Atmagati upnishad, enlighten us about life after death and concept of life. Dr. Rammathan has gone deep into the matter.

This is a very vital and important subject to deal with. Dr Ramanathan is a scientist as well as a schalar of Vedas. Vedic literature contains comprehensive details of Atman and its various forms. Dr Ramanathan has dwelt at length on the subject of Atman and Karma. What happens to the soul after it leaves the body? This information available in Vedic literature has been presented to us in very clear terms by Pandit Madhusüdan Ojha in his writings and also by his principal disciple Motilal Shastri in his writings. Dr Ramanathan has been greatly benefited by these writings in his presentation of the subject in this book. He strongly feels that Pandit Madhusüdan Ojha has gone very deep into the scientific aspects of Vedic knowledge and never before a study of this type was made by any other scholar The magnitude of the works of these two scholars of Jaipur has impressed Dr Ramanathan so much that he has decided to dedicate himself to bring Vedic Science to the notice of the English knowing people in general and the scientific community in particular. I, on my part, an quite sure that Dr. Ramanathan is a highly capable and dedicated scholdr to handle this task. He has earlier written papers on Weather Science which were published in a Science Journal. He is also writing books on Vedic Science and Atmagatividyä is the latest one. I hope that the worthy readers of this book will benefit from it.

  • AtmagatI Vidya

    A simply amazing book.


    Atmagati is a book concerning Vedic eschatology. Eschatology is a specific field in theology which concerns the passage of the soul after death and salvation. “Atma” is loosely translated as “soul” and “gati” is Sanskrit for “movement.” This is therefore a book about the movement of the soul after the death of the physical body.

    This is not the only topic discussed in this small book packed with information and doctrine. It contains meticulous discussion of prana, Vedic conceptions of heaven and hell, and a detailed discussion of liberation. It describes the paths taken by the soul after death through the Vedic asterisms and planets.

    While every chapter is important, the last chapter on liberation is even more so. Most of us are trapped in an endless cycle of rebirth, the soul traveling from body to body after death. This book describes the many possible routes (or, misdirections) it can take. As the soul is constantly finding a home in a new body, so too is the cycle of suffering continued. Liberation, knowing the path towards union with the Supreme Spirit, is the only method by which this cycle of suffering can be broken.

    This book is one in a series of books the author has written based on the writings of an overlooked, little-known Vedic thinker and scholar, Madhussan Ohja. Ohja sought to reconcile sometimes contradictory statements found in the Vedas, Brahmanas and Aranyakas. That doctrinal reconciliation as regarding the Atman is present in this book. There are many technical words, some of which are specific to Ohja’s teachings, but the author has been careful to provide a definition of the meaning of these words when necessary.

    This book will open your eyes to a new perspective of life, death, and salvation.

Testimonials

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
