Ancient India: Myth Of The Aryan Invasion
Scholars turned mythic wars between the powers of light and darkness into racial wars in India, though the same symbolism occurs throughout ancient civilizations from Egypt to America without such a corresponding human battle.

Such superficial views of ancient teachings, looking at them according to an outer vision of politics and economics has prevented modern scholars from  discovering the wealth of spiritual knowledge hidden in such texts. Not only the Vedas but also the  Egyptian Book of the Dead and Mayan teachings among others  have been misread in the same manner. As a sidelight to my  spiritual study of the Vedas, I began putting together an historical view that reflected the spiritual depth that the Vedas had revealed for me. This started as a simple matter of compiling references to the ocean in the Rig Veda to show that it could not be the product of  nomads from Central Asia who never knew of the sea.

I was gradually compelled to write a book on Vedic history to counter the existent distortions. I did a first draft in 1980 and gradually developed it further over time. I expanded and finished the work in 1990 and it was published the following year in the United States under the title of Gods, Sages and Kings: Vedic Secrets of Ancient Civilization. The book was one of the first titles to raise such issues as the Sarasvati River, Vedic astronomical references and the need for a more consistent rendition of Vedic literature. Little did I know that a great archeological revolution was beginning in India that would verify these views within the next decade.
