A Study of Deities of Rig Veda (With the help of Science)
A Study of Deities of Rig Veda (With the help of Science)
Description

From the Jacket :

This is probably for the first time that a serious study of Deities of Rig Veda has been made with the help of modern research methodology and science to find out what the Rishis had said, a few thousand years back, about the Deities. Efforts were also made to identify these gods. It is a finding of great importance that what Rishis had said about these gods is being corroborated by the western science today.

Dr. Gupta has grouped these 33 gods of Rig Veda in three categories: (i) Natural Phenomena Gods - Sky, Earth, Fire, Air and Water. All the material things are produced by their permutations and combinations. These five permutations and combinations. These five natural phenomena gods have their sub-gods also. For example, Agni has Surya Agni (Nuclear energy), Apan Napat Agni (Agni in the sky like lightning), Davanal (Agni on Earth), Badvanal (Agni in the oceans or water) and Jathragni (Agni in the body); (ii) Gods connected with soul energy such as Vishnu (can be compared with a modern generating station), Brahma who induces the tiny, invisible, weightless particles of soul energy in all the living beings to give them life, Shiva, who at an interval of time, takes out this particle of soul energy from all the living beings and they all become dead, and Yama, who and whose assistants take these tiny particles of soul to a place called Yama Loka; (iii) Craftsmen gods such as Vishvakarma, Tvastha and Ribhugan who assemble and mix the five basic elements in different proportions to create structures or forms so that soul-particles can be introduced in them; and (iv) Miscellaneous gods such as Rishis and other men, animals (cow, frog, etc.) raised to godhood, and other important things like meaning of prayer, does Rig Veda give history etc.

About the Author :

Dr. S. S. Gupta (b. January 1, 1929) is M.A., (Delhi), Ph.D. (Aligarh) and D. Litt (Agra). He started his career as a Lecturer in Economics at the prestigious D.S. Post Graduate College, Aligarh. He became a Head of the Deptt. and thereafter Principal of the D.S. Degree College. He took premature retirement in 1987, after 37 years of distinguished service. He has been popular teacher and a reputed scholar. After retirement he was appointed as the Vice-Chancellor of the Agra University. Dr. Gupta is a serious student. He has inter-disciplinary interests. So, he writes on several subjects with authority. He has a prolific pen. He has always broken new grounds and given new dimensions. He has written more than 100 articles and has 16 published research books to his credit. The most famous ones are: Report of Socio-Economic Survey of College Students (1957), Utilisation of Electricity in the Villages of the Distt. Of Aligarh (1969 - Financed by R.P.C., Planning Commission, New Delhi), 'Valmiki Ramayan Men Rajya Evam Arth Vyavastha (in Hindi) (1976 - Govt. of U.P. gave an award), Economic Philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi (Published second time in 1994 - Govt. of India distributed the earlier edition in the Gandhi Centenary Year) and Time Honoured Hindu Practices (1996). Even the Nobel Prize Winner, Professor Gunnar Myrdel, has quoted him and the Hindustan Times wrote three articles on his survey report of College Students.

Dr. Gupta was associated with a number of Social Service Clubs like Lions Club and Rotary Club. He was also a Member of the Zonal Advisory Committee, L.I.C. (Kanpur Zone).

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
