it was amazing

Scholarly treatise on Vedic poetics and Vedic cognition as articulated in Rg Veda, thus prior to later Indian ruminations on vision and language. 'Poets' in Vedic Sanskrit are vipras (cognate of the Engish 'vibrations,' as in the Beach Boys song). Although difficult unless one is a Sanskritist, many mystically inclined poets, yoginis and other illuminati can mine much gold -- and other excitations -- herein.
