AN AMERICAN DISCOVERS THE VEDAS
The Vedic language gradually unfolded its meaning through a study of the images, sounds and roots upon which the language was based. I felt an inner affinity with the teaching so that I did not find the texts to be difficult, though the grammar was often cumbersome. I soon discovered that the interpretations generally accepted for the older Vedas--not only those done by modern Western scholars but the traditional school of Sayana--as Aurobindo had noted, were indeed limited if not erroneous.

The result of this research was that I produced a book on the Upanishads and the Vedas called the Creative Vision of the Early Upanishads. It traced back the Vedantic teaching of the universal Self found in the Upanishads to an origin in an earlier and more powerful Vedic vision. This was opposite the way it is usually explained, which is to view the Upanishads as exalted philosophy developing from a crude Vedic ritualistic base.
