Ancient Wisdom for Modern Ignorance by Swami B.V. Tripurari

This is a collection of fourteen essays challenging the reasonableness of physicalism and materialistic dogma and shining a light on ancient India’s spiritual wisdom.

Some titles of the essays are: Demystifying Mystic Powers, Old Age Common Sense for New Age Nonsense, Raga and All that Jazz, Life in the Womb, Ayurveda or Allopathy?

These are well-crafted pieces for the ease of reading and their depth of thought.

From the back cover,

“The essays in this book were written with a view to address the quality of our life. . . . interfacing India’s spiritual and culture wisdom and devotional heart with our times. This interface should prove useful for those who are already discouraged with the direction humanity is heading as well as those who still hold fast to ideas that have been better days.

“For those now disenchanted with industrialization and scientific materialism as well as pseudospirituality.”
