I really had to change my perception,or actually false perception about many subjects related to Vedas and Vedic philosophy while reading his lectures. One memorable quote which he has repeatedly used in his lectures is "एकं सदविपरा बहुधा वदनति" which is actually the essence of philosophy. There is only a single truth, which is expressed and told by the intellectuals in different forms.Now, will the critics of Vedas tell me how the Vedic philosophy is not liberal?

great words. He has beautifully shown the need to shift the emphasis from contemplation to emphasis. Although not absolutely flawless and perfect, the book surely enlightens.
