      The Story: The readers are set to a journey into the world of Vedas and Upanishads, a tranquil road to “self-awareness and the amazing secrets of the universe ”, right from the very beginning of the book.. The book starts with a quiz on the Vedas and triggers the readers’ quest of knowing about the holy scriptures/5. The Rig Veda is a must read book for anyone who is researching the origins of religion, or the origins of man. For people who read things in their simplest form, I do not recommend this, or any religious text, as it will be pointless, and you will derive nothing from it/5.
