Hinduism is the foundation for all Eastern Religion, in a similar way that Judaism is the foundation for Western Religion. Hindu scriptures are some of the oldest writings on the planet. The teachings of Hinduism are extremely valuable to the spiritual aspirant, as they contain many instructions on meditation and spirituality.

The Upanishads

The selections offered here illuminate a path that is as "narrow as the edge of a razor" but pregnant with freedom and bliss.

Bhagavad Gita (Penguin Classics)
