From The River of Heaven is a broad compendium of wisdom and insight that reaches into all aspects of life and all domains of human culture. It covers such diverse topics as the different systems of Yoga, the scriptures of India, the universal meaning of Hinduism, Philosophies, both Hindu and Buddhist, Yogic Cosmology, the Gods and Goddesses, Sanskrit and Mantra, the Vedic view of society, the science of Karma and Rebirth, the inner meaning of Rituals, Ayurveda (ancient Indian medicine) and Hindu Astrology (Jyotish).

From the River of Heaven may be the most accessible and relevant overview of the spiritual tradition of India and its clearest presentation to the modern mind.

Vedic knowledge is the ancient and universal root, not only of Hinduism but of many of the world's religions and mystical traditions. Hindu and Vedic knowledge present a complete system of the heavenly river of spiritual science, including all the practices of Yoga as part of a rich field of spiritual culture. As such, it represents the flow of Divine grace and cosmic intelligence.

From the River of Heaven is an attempt to portray the power and extent of that flow of light.


The present book, perhaps the most relevant to the present-day world, gives an overview of the fundamentals of 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, and 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

From the River of Heaven focuses on the many different facets of India's Vedic tradition from a refreshing perspective that is at once intellectually appealing and emotionally fulfilling. For Indians living abroad,
this book offers the most concise yet broad-based interpretation of as diverse topics as the universal meaning of Hinduism, the gods and goddesses, yogic cosmology, Sanskrit and Mantra, the Vedic view of society, the science of karma and rebirth, the inner meaning of rituals, Ayurveda and astrology.-Francis Assisi, India West, October 1991

The work under review is very relevant to the present-day world and gives a brief account of the fundamentals of soul knowledge that influenced the lifestyle of ancient Indian Society. This book is a compendium of Ancient Indian Knowledge for the benefit of modern man.-Orient Institute-Usha Brahmachari, Vol.XLIII, September-December, 1993

The following book covers a large area of thought and experience in the oldest and most comprehensive spiritual tradition in the world. As such it is only meant to provide an overview and a glimpse of the many facets of this vast teaching. In many ways, therefore, it must be deficient. All the great teachers and teachings in the tradition could not be mentioned. Should some be left out, it does not mean that they are less important or significant than those included.

Nor do we have the space to provide references to follow up on all the ideas given in the different chapters. Many of the source teachings indicated to have a number of translations available, which can be examined. Hence, the implementation of this book is your responsibility as the reader. You should begin to explore the teachings in your own right, seeking them not only outwardly but within your own heart. Should you make this effort the light and the grace to follow them must come to you.

FROM THE RIVER OF HEAVEN is part of a series of books which address many of these different facets of the Hindu and Vedic spiritual tradition. Such additional books can be examined for more detail on these subjects. We also welcome anyone who wishes to contribute to this approach. May the eternal and universal teaching (Sanatana Dharma) arise again!
