KA BY ROBERTO CALASSO PDF

The sacred literature of Hinduism is traditionally divided into two "families. These books are called shruti "hearing" because they contain the perennial wisdom "heard" by the ancient rishis "seers" in states of heightened awareness. The rishis, though typically represented as human figures with godlike abilities, are really neither human nor divine, but incarnations of cosmic forces that appear at the dawn of each world age to establish its framework of order and truth. Chief among their creations for our current age are the four collections of hymns and prayers, sacrificial formulas, and chants known together as the Vedas literally, "knowledge".
