David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri)

Hindu Books > Authors > Shri David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri)

DAVID FRAWLEY (Vamadeva Shastri) DAVID FRAWLEY (Vamadeva Shastri), is one of the few Westerners ever recognized in India as a Vedacharya or teacher of the ancient Vedic wisdom. His field of study includes Ayurvedic medicine, Vedic astrology, Tantra, Yoga and Vedantic philosophy. His more specific work is with the Vedas themselves, including a reexamination of ancient history in light of new archeological finds in India and a more critical examination of Vedic texts. He has written ten books and many articles on these subjects over the last fifteen years, which have been published both in India and the United States.

In India his translations and interpretations of the Vedas have received acclaim from both spiritual and scholarly circles. Presently, he is director of the American Institute of Vedic Studies, PO Box 8357, Santa Fe, New Mexico, 87504-8357 USA.

His most relevant books to the present volume are ARISE ARJUNA: HINDUISM AND THE MODERN WORLD (Voice of India, 1995), FROM THE RIVER OF HEAVEN: HINDU AND VEDIC KNOWLEDGE FOR THE MODERN AGE (Motilal Banarsidass 1992), THE MYTH OF THE ARYAN INVASION OF INDIA (Voice of India, 1994), GODS, SAGES AND KINGS: VEDIC SECRETS OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATION (Motilal Banarsidass, 1992), WISDOM OF THE ANCIENT SEERS: SELECTED MANTRAS FROM THE RIG VEDA (Motilal Banarsidass 1993), and VEDIC ARYANS AND THE ORIGIN OF CIVILIZATION (with Navaratna S. Rajaram, International Institute of Indian Studies 1994).
