Product description

About the Author

The book calls into question our entire view of human history, and therefore our primary understanding of who we are as human beings inhabiting the planet earth. Although the book on the one level is a fascinating and colorful revelation of a highly developed ancient culture, it is much more significantly a truly spiritual vision of where we come from and who we are.

This book solves a long standing dilemma, encountered by those who have cherished a spiritual vision of life. Our human identity has been captured in a belief in domination by force as a necessary condition of survival. Under such circumstances, spiritual life, be it yoga and meditation, or prayer and devotion has tended to be largely a means of escaping domination - hence life denying and therefore unfruit-ful. What should be obvious to us after millennia of spiritual striving with limited success is that we have had no foundation on which to build. Yet it is not that we have really lacked a spiritual foundation - but that we have not recognized the one which existed.

David Frawley has turned on the light in a big way. For the first time we see a rich and radiant vision of the origins of human civilization in a spiritual culture, based upon yogic knowledge that we are the children of great seers, rishis, and we have somewhat lost our way.

Gods, Sages and Kings presents a remarkable accumulation of evidence pointing to the existence of a common spiritual culture in the ancient world from which present civilization may be more of a decline than an advance. The book is based upon new interpretation of the ancient Vedic teachings of India, and brings out many new insights from this unique source often neglected and misinterpreted in the West. In addition, it discusses recent archaeological discoveries in India whose implications are now only beginning to emerge.

It reveals the geography of the ancient Vedic world, including the sacred Himalayan lands of the Soma. It shows the lineages of the Vedic kings and the realms that they ruled. It deciphers the ancient Vedic calendar and its sophisticated system of astronomy going back to before 4000 B.C. and uncovers the yogic practices of the ancient Vedic seers that appear to be behind all the religions of the World. It suggests that all the peoples of the ancient world may be related to the Vedic culture including those of Sumeria, Egypt, China, and the Americas. The book challenges the accepted views of the origins of civilizations in a profound way and thus causes the reader to re-examine what it means to be a human being.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vedic Religion and its civilization
By BALANANDA KUMAR R on 19 June 2020
Received the book in a good condition. Vedic history studies are incomplete without David Frawley. The Post Indus era of the Vedic Saraswati is explained well. The author has posited the Vedics as a global civilization stretching from North India right into Central Asia and Middle East. The book is explicit on the non Aryans and Dravidians too. But what the book doesnt cover is the penetration of Vedic religion into South India and its mingling with the Agamic Saivism giving rise to today's Hinduism. Also the origins of Upanishads is not discussed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good
By Sana Mir on 28 April 2021
The book came in a good condition. It's informative. I haven't read it but my Husband wanted it..wanted to read it since long. He was very happy. I can only comment on the condition of the book. It's good. The printing on some pages is lighter but legible. There is one place where ink was blotted. But very small. Not able to find it now while clicking. One (double) page was detached. Overall it is good so my husband wanted to keep it and not exchange. He said all this is fine and negligible. So overall.. Happy.👍😊
