Although classical texts often have outmoded unscientific cosmologies, India’s Bhagavata Purana, upon closer examination, reveals a sophisticated cosmological system containing multiple levels of meaning that encode at least four different astronomical, geographical, and spiritual world models.

About the Author:

Richard L. Thompson was born in Binghamton, New York, in 1947. In 1974 he received his Ph. D. in mathematics from Cornell University, where he specialized in probability theory and statistical mechanics. Dr. Thompson has done scientific research in quantum physics, mathematical biology, and remote sensing. He has extensively investigated ancient Indian astronomy, cosmology, and spirituality, and he has developed multimedia expositions on these topics. He is the author of six books on topics ranging from consciousness to archeology and ancient astronomy.

Review:

Gripping, scholarly and groundbreaking, Mysteries of the Sacred Universe deserves to be widely read and discussed. -- Robert Bauval, coauthor of The Orion Mystery and The Mystery of the Sphinx

Overturns a long history of scholarly undervaluation of the supposedly "only mythological" contents of ancient India's Puranic literature. -- Professor Gene Thursby of University of Florida

Thompson presents a compelling case showing Puranic cosmology was intended to have multiple meanings spanning terrestrial, astronomical, and spiritual planes. -- Professor Subash Kak, Louisiana State University
