Hamsa speaks on the spiritual core of Vedic philosophy, which is the same inner directive of all Vedic science, called "Atma Vidya", or knowledge of the soul. Vedic astrology (jyotish) is the science of time and thus karma; ayurveda the science of healing and the Yoga philosophy's "call to action" all teach us the true goal of every living being: "self realization". Immersed in these ancient teachings of India since boyhood, Hamsa shares his knowledge and experience in making the connection, which points us toward the highest destiny attainable.
