Yoga Vasistha: Vedanta Wisdom through Miniature Paintings is an introduction to this unique subject--an epic that provides insights into the ancient Vedanta wisdom, the nature of existence, reality and governance. It contains timeless wisdom on questions regarding the self and Brahma, the creator, through a series of ancient paintings depicting stories from Yoga Vasistha. It explains how intellectual mastery bestows upon a man a power that far exceeds any external empowerment.
