Scriptures from the Orient presents detailed interpretations of four books: Dhammapada of Buddhism; Tao Te Ching of Lao Tzu of Taoism; Kitab-i-Aqdas of Baha'i and Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. This book contrasts the literal interpretation of each book of oriental scripture with a new interpretation that explains the symbolism of the very same words to produce a different meaning applicable to oneself in daily living. Symbolic meanings of words describe the eternal flow of spirit for enlightenment, spiritual growth and inner peace. The simple message: Let the spirit that is coming to you come through you individually in each moment. ugh you individually in each moment.
