Re: Kabu

Yes ma'am they do have similarities with the ancients literatures of other cultures. The oldest text of the Vedic Period was Rig Veda. It is believed that the compilation of the Rig Veda had stretched over a number of centuries. However, there is a conflict as to the completion date of the Rig Veda. Some historians believe it to be 1500 BC, while the others believe it to be 3000 BC. This time period coincided with the Indus Valley Civilization. It was probably more ancient than the Egyptian, Greek or Roman cultures. Fascinating thus!

Re: C C T Thank you

And I so enjoy trying to break codes; they energze me no end. Thank you immensely for praising 'devotion'. You've touched the right spot.

Re: Re: Re: Aba

That you look forward to excites me and I'll try my very best to make these comprehensible. Sanskrit, though quite complex unless mastered, has so many nuances of one word which makes translating difficult; for example, experience we all know, but tha word 'experiencing' in the present continuous tense, called 'Anubhuti' has no equivalent. And there are hundreds such.

I find some aspects of this amazing epic has similarity to ancient Greek writings and to the bible. I suspect that people repeated the stories that they heard from one civilization to the other. Actually I believe that so much of what we take for granted as truth all began from Sanskrit writings. Could I be correct?

Well honestly I don't know how you do it A. It seems almost like breaking a code. I have to stumble through it as i am not too good with remembering names, but I do appreciate your devotion.

Re: Re: Aba

I look forward to reading and learning. So it's Sanskrit to Hindi to English? Well, concepts should remain similar in the teachings, though some nuances may be obscured. But not to worry, that happens in many writings, certainly English to English! Different people interpret differently. Hope you and your have a wonderful new year also.

Re: Aba

Thank you Presta for giving it a concentrated read and for appreciating. It is a monumental task for the Western as well as the Eastern minds! too. It took me ages to draw out sense from the original Sanskrit verses, but now I am somewhat comfortable with their interetatations. The beauty is that it all appears new every time one reads it. I shall endeavour to meaningfully explain the chapters as we go along. I'm sure that that a mind as receptive as yours, you will enjoy and bask in the profundity and the beauty of the Gita teachings. The problem, however, is to be able to find the exact equivalents of these verses in English. Once again wishing you a HNY to you and yours.

Aba

Wow! Wonderful. Such a fascinating background. Thank you, Aba! This is a monumental task to explain to the Western mind. One would need to study the Gita for a lifetime, and one might never become an aesthetic in the sense of attaining the highest level of what I perceive to be the its teachings. Kudos to you for a difficult job well done.
