Welcome Note

The aim of the book and others in this series is to introduce the eternal wisdom contained in the four Veda Samhitas and explain its relevance for the modern age. We focus on the concerns of the Youth regarding the study of Veda. A typical young person has little interest in the Veda Since He/ She associates Vedas with the routine religious rituals. Telling him/ Her That the Veda is our ancient book and the backbone of our culture makes little impression.

The Modern youth clearly like enjoyment but they are also keen on developing their own their own innate potentials unique to each individual They are dimly aware that enjoyment and work have to go hand in hand some of them are aware that society or family can offer little help if they do not care to develop their own talents. They are all by and large highly utilitarian Many of them can see the hollowness behind the popular slogans such as abolish poverty worship the dams as temple all of our problems such as inability to read or write are caused by society ets. So they ask what can the Veda do for us for instance some of them ask why so many student fail in examinations. They accept some student do the study enough. But they the student have never been taught how to develop fundamental skills like will power memory inspiration clarity of thought recognition of the Joy in the Work and the need for awareness while doing all actions at all times.

This book and the associated publication are designed to introduce the student to the Vedic Methods of developing will power memory inspiration clarity of thinking ets. And method of doing work and studying which brings in joy instead of being regarded as merely boring.

In the first edition of Essentials of Atharva Veda only English translation of quoted mantras were given. And the text of mantras was covered in a complimentary book titled Wisdom of Atharva Veda Now both the books are combined in this revised edition

AV Contains a large number of hymns dealing with health. Healing herbs and longevity . Since a separate Saksi book on these topic is in preparation the coverage is brief.

The first two editions of Essentials of Atharva Veda and the Kannada Version sold out in a relatively short timespan. Now the Marathi and Malayalam edition are also available. The readers and Veda lovers have expressed that the Veda Knowledge given in this format is helping them to understand the profound Knowledge of rishis and to read harmonious life.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
