The Song of the Atharvans
The Song of the Atharvans
Description

Back of the Book

The Atharvans by Brigadier G D Bakshi is a new and scientific approach to the Vedas, an incusion into the minds of the Indian sages. Did they really use psychotropic plants to achieve the great mental heights and insights the they claim or was it self-induced through their practice of meditation? The author with great authority tries to explain the reasoning behind the lessons taught by the ancient sages of India.

He has traced the path of the search for the mystical potion Soma from the heights of the Hindu Kush Mountains through the wastes of ancient Persia to the hills of Kashmir and event further north into the Mongolian uplands. Accepting the fact that all documentation on the subject is inconclusive he still adheres to the belief that such a substance did exist. He qualifies this by discussing the question of whether it was an external aid or a self produced effect of the human physiology, the result of deep and concentrated meditation.

This book is therefore not only a historical discourse on the origins of the Aryans but also a deep psychological probe into the state of man's mind. Referring to many of the world's most famous scientists he has opened up before us a completely new perception of these often highly misunderstood texts.

The author further questions the direction in which humankind's evolution has taken it and whether in truth we still follow the path as directed by the ancients. He also gives his opinion as to the perfected form that he expects mankind to achieve in the future. It is a provocative volume demanding the attention of all thinking people; and it may even provide some of the answers to saving what is left of our highly conditioned and damaged psyches.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
