Back when we were gathering Vedic verses for Dancing with Siva, we could hardly believe our eyes when we came upon this thoughtful anthology from the Vedic Samhitas, Brahmanas, Aranyakas and Upanishads and other scriptures. This Vedic epiphany tells the story of the universal rhythms of nature, history and humanity. The translation and abundant commentary are the work of renaissance thinker Raimon Panikkar, the fruit of twelve years of daily sadhana in Varanasi between 1964 and 1976 while he lived above a Siva temple on the Ganges. He considers it his most significant literary contribution.
