Ancient Sanskrit Wisdom

Speaker: Shiva Hullavarad  Lay Leader: Lisa Sporleder  Music: Vera Alexander

The Vedic scriptures form the spiritual, cultural, and social basis of the civilization that thrived in the part of the Middle East and Indian sub-continent spanning today’s Afganistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Vietnam. These Vedic scriptures developed around 1,500–200 B.C. and are divided into four main Vedas. The Upanishads are the summary of all the four Vedas and provide the essence of the voluminous texts primarily focusing on knowledge and wisdom. These texts are the guiding lights of internal purity, societal order, nature conservation, and sustainability. Some theologists have pointed out that these texts are the manuals and operating procedures for a perfect society.
