Mrugendra Vinod is the Founder President of Anandavan Bhakta Samudaya, an institute of advanced studies in Veda and Science based in Varanasi. It is a charity society formed by some DRDO Scientists and Vedics. This Institute has done primary research in the field of Ancient History and Geography of I ndia by correlating Brahman Literature prescribing performable rituals and modern discoveries of physical remnants of a now dried up river system and human settlements.
The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) is a centre encompassing the study and experience of all the arts each form with its own integrity, yet within a dimension of mutual interdependence, interrelated with nature, social structure and cosmology. Through diverse programmes of research, publication, training, creative activities and performance, the IGNCA seeks to place the arts within the context of the natural and human environment. Recognizing the need to encompass and preserve the distributed fragments of Indian arts and culture, and to study the different aspects of Indology from Indian viewpoint, long term project titled Bharat Vidya Prayojana (BVP) may be initiated in the IGNCA. The lack of institutional study and research on Indology in India has resulted in a serious discord in the understanding and appreciation of ideas contained in the said texts and traditions, especially by the younger generation. While it is welcomed that questions be raised about fundamental concepts and outlook of Indian traditions; the healthy dialogue is lacking and the discourse often becomes uni- directional, negative and anti-institutional to the time-honoured knowledge and traditions of India. Hence under the BVP, the IGNCA aims to re-contextualize the study of Indology from an Indian perspective, and is attempting to provide the right platform for creating a healthy discourse through research field studies and other related academic activities, which will strengthen the dialogue and pave the way for a better comprehension of Indology or Bharat Vidva.
I have great pleasure in presenting an original and fresh addition to the field of Ancient History of Vedic People. This monograph is the outcome of intense devotion of an exceptional devotee of Vedic Culture. The text is a veritable collection of Vedic Passages having a significant connection to the subject at hand. Flights of Intuition could only have brought these together into a coherent narrative.
Author has an unusually unorthodox approach not fettered by any dogma or established schools of thought. His passion for facts without fiction is manifested in every section. He has not claimed to have got the full picture of the past. He has not indented this book to be a text-book for students where the material is offered as a self-evident truth or proven fact. Rather, he presents the original Vedic Passage with fluid translation and then reflects upon it as evidence or what he calls "Oral Epigraph".
The monograph has an interdisciplinary scope covering Vedic Texts, Ritualistic Knowledge, Archaeology, Iconography. Astronomy and so on.
