Three thousand years ago, deep inside the forests of India, a great 'thought- revolution' was brewing. In those forest labs, the brightest scientist-philosophers contemplated the universe and reflected upon the already-ancient texts called the Vedas, gaining some startling insights into questions that we still have no watertight answers to, like: 

  • What is the universe made of? 
  • How do I know I'm looking at a tree when I see one? 
  • Who am I? My body, my mind, my intelligence, my emotions, or NOTA? And where did they put those explosive findings? 

In a sprawling body of goose-bumpy, thought-provoking and fascinating oral literature called the Upanishads! 

Intimidated? Don't be! For this joyful, fun guide to some of India's most enduring and secular wisdoms, reinterpreted for first-time explorers by author Roopa Pai, is guaranteed to keep you listening. Why haven't you checked it out yet?
