Through an in-depth analysis of the history and scriptures of these two traditions, Islam and the Vedas helps the reader understand the underlying connection between all authentic spiritual teachings. This book highlights points of convergence between Islam and the monotheistic devotional tradition of Vedic spirituality. Can followers of the Vedic wisdom find teachings akin to their own in Islam? And can followers of the Koran find like-minded teachings in the Vedic literature? Rasamandala Das shows that they can. This book points to the essential unity of all true traditions, and stresses our fundamental birthright as human beings.
Examples of similarities you'll find in Islam and the Vedas:
From the Bhagavad-gita
"That supreme abode of Mine is not illuminated by the sun or moon, nor by fire or electricity. Those who reach it never return to this material world." (Bg. 15.6)
"I am the light of the sun and the moon." (Bg. 7.8)
"He is the source of light in all luminous objects." (Bg. 13.18)
From the Koran
"Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth." (Koran 24:35)
"It is He who gives the sun its radiance, the moon its luster." (Koran 10:5)
