Swamiji A. Parthasarathy decodes the ancient Indian philosophy of Vedanta

As a young boy, A. Parthasarathy loved listening to stories told to him by his father. Whether stories from Western literature or Indian scriptures, Parthasarathy would listen with rapt attention, and then fire a series of questions at his father.

“I was an enquirer from the very beginning. I remember my father mentioning to others that the age of seven, I used to ask him uncomfortable questions, like whether the chicken came first or the egg came first. I had this enquiring mind, and I wanted to know the meaning and purpose of life,” says Chennai-born Parthasarathy in an e-mail interview.
