Rabindranath Tagore's Our Universe
Rabindranath Tagore's Our Universe
Description
From the Jacket:

Amongst other things Tagore felt a deep interest in scientific speculation and discovery. For him the planet Earth was only a small, though marvelously significant speck in Creation, and he believed that if we are to understand ourselves we must comprehend also the Universe of which our world is a mere particle. One of his finest abilities was his capacity for interpreting Nature, and his love of Nature, which in one aspect was localized enthusiastically in the landscapes of Bengal, extended infinitely to the stars harmoniously crowding space. His enthusiasm to learn about them was unlimited and this book reveals how exact and wide was his grasp of contemporary knowledge on the subject. It is a book by a student for fellow-students; but it is also a poet's description of what he gleaned from countless learned scientific works, and has a simplicity combined scientific works, and has a simplicity combined with imagery that makes his account very vivid.

IAs a serious student and teacher of Bhagavad Gītā, Upaniṣad and Jyotiṣa I have found you have some good editions of English with sanskrit texts. Having texts of high quality with both is essential.   This has been a user friendly experience
