The Vedic Way of Knowing God – A New Book

By: for ISKCON News on Dec. 3, 2010
Revealing the profound philosophical insights of the world's most ancient spiritual philosophy, this new book by Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya not only boldly answers the question "How do I know God?" from the distinctly Vedic (Hindu) perspective, but also explores the further issues of what it even means to be able to know God. With greater detail than any other book ever written to date, it reveals the precise mystical mechanisms employed for knowing the Divine; the psychological conditions necessary for such a spiritual endeavor; the transformative cognitive experiences that occur within the spiritual practitioner upon achieving God-realization; the integral relationship between transcendent Word, spiritually revealed literature, and the important role of living teachers; and the vast implications of the Vedic world-view on contemporary global philosophy and religion.
