Sage Advice: Yoga Vasishtha

"Devine Being, like a sea, surges upward in a wave of creation, then subsides again into its own nature. Waves of universes rise incessantly, in infinite numbers, one after another."
-- Yoga Vasishtha 2:19

Hindu History: Vyasa

Vyasa, who compiled the four Vedas into their current format, is also credited with writing the Mahabharata, a book four times the length of the Christian Bible, and the 18 Puranas, many of which are over four hundred pages long. Cooler heads believe that although there probably was an original Vyasa involved in collecting the Vedas, his name was later applied to other men and women who authored or edited voluminous sacred texts.

Quick Info

The word Upanishad means "sitting near." It conjures up the image of a disciple sitting near the guru, listening intently.
