This book provides a complete view of the world's most ancient scripture, the
Rgveda. Here each Vedic word, which at first sight appears cryptic and mysterious
has been explained in lucid terms after analyzing it down to its root and sound,
so that the real intention of the rsi who compiled the Hymn is made clear. Those
readers who are interested in the real ethos of our First Book of Knowledge,
on which is based our Hindu dharma and culture, will find this sample survey
of One Hundred hymns most engrossing and helpful in understanding the whole
ethos of the Vedas.
