The Cosmic Matrix introduces its readers to the corpus of texts known as the four Vedas and their auxiliary branches. It also explains veda tattwa, the phenomenon which pervades nature. The difference between the books of the Vedas and the phenomenon explained by these texts is crucial to an understanding of the formulations recorded by the seer-scientists in the texts. This work is not a commentary on these ancient texts, which have been gathered together in the four Vedas of Rik Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda and Atharva Veda. Rather, it is an effort to understand and explain - for the first time in English, the dominant language of modern times - the forgotten insights of this ancient wealth of knowledge.
