AN AMERICAN DISCOVERS THE VEDAS
I also had a poetic bent of mind and wrote poetry of a mystical and symbolic type since the time I was sixteen. I used images of the dawn and the night, fire, the wind, and the sun, along with gods and goddesses, with the forces of nature appearing as powers of both the human and cosmic mind in their interplay. Later I found that these same images predominated in the Vedas themselves.

Of the great modern yogis, Sri Aurobindo was the greatest poet, and so naturally his work had an appeal to me. The beginning of the chapters in his book The Life Divine contained various Vedic quotes, particularly from the Rig Veda, which I found to be particularly inspiring. I noted in a list of his books that he had several books on the Vedas themselves. This aroused my interest in the Vedas and I ordered these books and studied them with great interest, meditating carefully upon them, including Secret of the Veda and Hymns to the Mystic Fire.
