A Comparative Study of the Principal Religions of the World and a Manifestation of Their Common Origin from the Vedas. Puts forth the idea that all great religions of the world have come from a common source, with that being The Vedas. They are the scriptures of the Hindu religion, thought by Hindus to have been written by wise men at the beginning of human history. Those who follow Vedic teachings pursue a union with God called samadhi, equal to nirvana for the Buddhists. The author traces religious themes back to The Vedas like good and evil, the afterlife, resurrection, and the names used for God in Judaism, Christianity and Buddhism. Should be studied closely by anyone interested in the origin of religions.
