Subject: The timeless wisdom of India ...

"Our purpose is to make the eternal knowledge of Bhagavad- Gita freely available to everyone all over the Earth."

Sastra - http://www.iskcon.org/sastra/

"The timeless wisdom of India is expressed in the Vedas, ancient Sanskrit texts that touch upon all fields of human knowledge. Originally preserved through oral tradition, in this cycle of ages the Vedas were first put into writing 5000 years ago by the great sage Srila Vyasadeva, the "literary incarnation of God." In addition to the compilation of the Vedas the sage also wrote down the Mahabharata, the Upanisads, the Puranas and the Vedanta-sutras.

As evident from these Vedic scriptures, the knowledge they contain was originally given by the Supreme Personality of Godhead at the beginning of creation. Thereafter it was handed down through the ages in an unbroken chain of spiritual masters, expanded to fit the ever-changing times, places and circumstances, but never altered in essence or conclusion.

The philosophy of Krishna consciousness, being the ultimate conclusion of all Vedic knowledge, is therefore as old as time itself. Yet, it is never stale or boring. Human life is the same no matter what time setting it manifests in, hence its problems remain the same as well: birth, death, old age and disease. The root cause of these problems is our false identification with this material world and forgetfulness of our original position in relationship with the Supreme.

This web site features full on-line versions of Vaishnava literatures as the Bhagavad Gita As It Is, the Brahma Samhita, Songs of the Vaishnava Acaryas and the Sri Siksastaka." http://www.iskcon.org/sastra/

May the knowledge contained in these web links bless you as much or more as they have me, yes & amen !

Peace be with you! --Sincerly, Brian
