Hindu civilization and its rich vedic culture have produced many books, scriptures and prayers from an ancient oral tradition through to vast texts such as the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Gita with which we are familiar today.

What are these texts?, and is there a main ‘Hindu book’?
How do the Vedas fit together?
What is smriti?
There are how many Gitas?

How do we navigate this vast body of literature and make sense of it today?

In EP06 of The VM Podcast, we are joined by Siddhartha ji Krishna to help answer these questions whilst we go on a journey through the many texts that make up ‘The Hindu Library’, Let’s learn about their structure and content, and how the modern reader should approach them.

Siddhartha ji Krishna was raised in a family tradition of yoga, memorised the Gita at the age of 6 and was educated at the Kailash Ashram Brahma Vidyapeeth in Rishikesh. He is a spiritual master and a teacher of Indian philosophy, including Advaita Vedanta, Patanjali’s Yoga and Sanskrit, and continues to be based in Rishikesh at the Omkarananda Ashram.
