Now Reading: the Vedic Experience

Just wanted to share something rather extraordinary with you – A document called The Vedic Experience – let me know what you make of this, please!  A random find while I was searching for some other Sanskrit texts. 

+ Information about the author, Professor Raimon Pannikar.

Thanks.

PS I was looking for the शतपथ ब्राह्मण śatapatha brāhmaṇa, ŚB in Devanāgarī script – I have found a couple of transliterations – would like the original Madhyandina recension if possible – Thanks again :)

Practical Spirituality – Seeds.

“Your daily life is your temple and your religion.

When you enter into it take with you your all.”

Kahlil Gibran
Poet, Essayist, Novelist and Symbolist Painter. 1883-1931

In my teens, as many of us did, I read Gibran’s best known work, The Prophet. 

This book helped me a great deal as it showed me that the narrow dogmas I had already rejected as a child were not the only way to approach religion and spirituality.

Gibran was born into a Maronite Christian family but his mysticism is founded in a convergence of Christianity, Islam, Sufism, Hinduism and Theosophical teachings.

I’ve been down those paths since and many others besides. Gibran’s words still shine in simplicity. I commend his writings to you:

“Say not, ‘I have found the truth,’ but rather, ‘I have found a truth.’”
