AN AMERICAN DISCOVERS THE VEDAS
For example, when I received my first copies the Vedas in Sanskrit it was not something ancient or foreign that I saw but an old friend and companion.  Nor do I approach the Vedas from an academic or even personal perspective. To approach the Vedas I first put my mind into a silent state and let the teaching unfold itself without the interference of my own thoughts.

This is not done through mental effort, though there is the effort of concentration. It is like opening an irrigation channel to a great river and letting the water come in. It occurs through turning the mind within.  The great beauty of the Hindu religion is that the impressions it creates within us remain with us life. It is not a religion limited to one life only, and its benefit carries through all of out lives to the final liberation of the soul. In this regard the impressions of the Vedas can be found in each one of us, if we know how to look deeply for them.
