In 1933, Coomaraswamy published A New Approach to the Vedas, and thereafter he regularly brought out longer and shorter studies of the Vedas and Upani ads till the year 1947. These works were published in a variety of American, European and Indian journals. These essays have been arranged here in this volume in relation to some aspects or the other of Vedic text as one integrated perception.

The author has tried to make accurate, evocative translations of Vedic and Upani adic texts through the use of scholastic language and archaic or composite words. These translations are followed by copious notes covering related passages from other texts and translations in order to bring out a fuller meaning of the process of emanation of manifest from the unmanifest It is hoped that this volume will open up a new vista of interpreting the Vedic lore so that we can reintegrate our own fuller being with the fuller manifestations of the cosmic order in which resides the truth of truths.
