Vedic Society Book Review(What's this?)
Review of From the River of Heaven: Hindu and Vedic Knowledge for the Modern Age

The present book, perhaps the most relevant to the present-day world, gives an overview of the fundamentals of the Soul-knowledge...It examines with insight the lines on which this Source (River) of Truth has flooded every branch of India's life-religion, science, art, medicine, yoga, psychology, social structure. Every page of this well-planned book is informative and stimulating. This is one of the best surveys of the Indian Civilisation deriving its roots from the eternal Dharma perceived and lived by the Aryan race on this sacred land, that is Bharata.-M.P.Pandit, The Astrological Magazine, October, 1991


Customer Reviews of From the River of Heaven: Hindu and Vedic Knowledge for the Modern Age
Review by Rod Suskin: Saturday 29 October, 2005
This book manages to convey both the factual and spiritual essence of most of vedic culture. Remarkably for a short book with short chapters, every time you come back to it there is a new understanding or insight to be gained. Especially useful is Frawley's insight into the use and meaning of the 'caste' system which often causes misunderstanding amongst Westerners. He also manages to explain Vedic culture in a way which is immediately valuable to the modern mind - it never feels like you are reading something that is lost in the past or out of date. A very valuable addition to your library.

Review by Martin Gluckman: Friday 09 July, 2004
This is one of David Frawleys finest and most complete expositions of Veda dharma. It covers many aspects of Vedic culture, weaving it all together and his profound insights and experience into Ayrurveda, Jyotish and Vedanata are all presented in a lovely book that I read and reread. It is clear and beautifully written and shares with us (and the world) the marvellous depth of wisdom in *every* aspect of life that is sourced in the Vedic wisdom. Thank you Dr. Frawley for writting such a fine and magnificent book! Anyone interested in the ancient roots of humanity and understanding the various Vedic sciences such as Ayurveda, Jyotish and Yoga should read his book.
