About The Author

Sri T.V. Kapali Sastri was a versatile genius. He excelled in whatever field he worked. Among his several services to the national heritage, the one which comes most prominently to the mind is his solid contribution in building strong bridge between the ancient past and the evolutionary thought to the present. Following the trail of his master, first of Vasishtha Ganapati Muni and then of Sri Aurobindo, he unearthed many a truth that underlies concealed within the cryptic utterances of the Veda. In the great adventure of reinterpreting veda-s to us along the lines of Sri Aurobindo, Sri Kapali Sastri played a significant part. Sri TVK’s writings on the Upanishads, especially on the various Vidya-s, disciplines, that are described briefly and cryptically in the originals, are a treasure of mystic lore.

Sri TVK’s writings are in four languages namely English, Tamil, Telugu and Sanskrit. Sanskrit was more natural to him. All his writings are collected and published in eleven volumes.

Sri TVK regarded himself as a Tantrik, first and last. He was a profound votary and masterful adept in the mantra shastra. It is on record how his Mantra Japa turned the tide in the lives of many in distress.
