This book is a pioneering study that reconciles the traditional understanding of the Vedic Gods, taken as the constituents of the individual’s consciousness, with new discoveries of neuroscience.
Using a variety of sources, the book argues that the Gods may be seen as the cognitive centres in the brain or the archetypal projections of an objective consciousness on the subjective mind.
This book will be useful to scholars of religion, psychology and the emerging new science of consciousness.
