About the book:

Among the sacred books of India are the hymns of the Rig-Veda, the worlds first recorded poems; the magical texts of the Athara-Veda; the stirring pantheistic speculations of the Upanishads; and the Bhagavad-G+t, a cosmic drama of divine self-revelation in human history on the field of human battle. Taken together they represent 3,500 years of a continuous religious tradition that is multifarious, inclusive, and, at the same time, wedded to a central spiritual vision.

This edition features the translations and annotations of R. C. Zaehner, a pioneering scholar whose selections in this volume, first published by Everymans Library in 1966, have never been bettered as an introduction for the general reader to the Vedic tradition. Zaehner has chosen the most interesting and important verses, rendered in English that is accessible and vivid, and his introduction provides an excellent guide to the historical context, the philosophical significance, and the literary power of these beautiful and ancient texts.
