German Translation of a Book on Indian Ancient Wisdom

A book on ancient Indian wisdom is now being translated into German language

A book on Indian wisdom, which has been formally prefaced by NASA Chief scientists and authored by the researcher Shri Salil Gewali of Meghalaya, is now is going to be translated into the German language by a scholar from Germany – Ms. Caroline Hagen. Another scholar from Berlin, Germany —  Mr. Max Herz has offered to assist in editing the book. When Ms. Caroline got Gewali’s book some months back, she was overwhelmed with joy as she got in the book most of the information about the opinions of Arthur Schopenhauer and German Nobel laureate Harman Hesse on ancient knowledge of India. Harman Hesse is highly celebrated for his novel – “Siddhartha” which is set in Indian doctrine of salvation and the philosophy of karma of Buddhism. Very Interestingly, Harman Hesse dedicated a part of his Siddhartha novel to a renowned French laureate Romain Rolland who again was deeply inspired by the wisdom of Vedanta of ancient India. A yoga enthusiast, Ms Caroline instantly resonate with what Gewali’s book set out — particularly the influence of Upanishads in Germany and other European countries in 19th Century.

The book by Salil Gewali showcases how the ancient wisdom of India inspired great minds and the same book will be translated in the German language.

Caroline Hagen comments – “I am very proud to be able to translate Salil Gewali’s book into German. Despite the modern western culture’s affection to old Indian practices, particularly the wisdom related to yoga and meditation, very few know about the influence Indian philosophy that has had upon ‘our’ most popular thinkers like Schopenhauer, Johann Goethe, and Hesse. These great literary figures have stated at places that their work couldn’t have existed without the influence of the Upanishads and the work of Kalidasa like Shakuntala.” No wonder, Albert Einstein always looked upon Arthur Schopenhauer for inspiration.   

The search-based book by Salil Gewali showcases in the words of the world-renowned thinkers, writers and scientists that how the ancient wisdom of Indian inspired them and became immensely instrumental in their researches and discoveries.
