Three thousand years ago, deep inside the forests of India, a great 'thought revolution' was brewing.
In those forest labs, the brightest thinker-philosophers contemplated the universe, reflected on ancient texts called the Vedas and came up with startling insights into question we still don't have final 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 none of the above?
And where did they put those explosive findings?
In a sprawling body of goosebumpy and fascinating oral literature called the Upanishads! Intimidated? Don't be! For this joyful, fun guide to some of India's longest-lasting secular wisdoms, reinterpreted for first-time explorers by Roopa Pai, is guaranteed to keep you turning the pages.
