Rites of Love
|Author:||Vladimir Megre (ed Leonid Sharashkin) ; (tr from Russian John Woodsworth )|
|Series:||Ringing Cedars Series|
Rites of Love compares today's attitudes toward sex, childbirth, family and education with those of our forebears. Through the fascinating life-story of one family, Megre portrays the radiant world of the ancient Russian Vedic civilisation, documents the drama of its destruction and reveals its rebirth - millenia later - in our present time. In powerful poetic prose, Megre describes a way of life that was grounded in love and non-violence, and then shows the practicability of this same approach today. Rites of Love reminds us of much we have forgotten - it really is like reading one's own life story and, in the process, awakening from a long sleep. First published 2006; this edition 2008.
