Cultural Integration Fellowship
The Vedas have traditionally been considered as ritual literature or nature poetry. Sri Aurobindo offers an alternative interpretation of the Vedic corpus as the earliest transformative psychology of the world, taught in mystery schools. This talk will attempt to outline the cosmology and psychology of the Veda along with the beings and mythic cycles that narrativize its sequences leading to a divine life and a divine world.
