Description
Information
In this book, Robert Calasso narrates the birth of one of the world's great cultures: the formation of the mind of India. He doesn't explain or describe this mental world - he regenerates it, until we no longer need to define it for ourselves because we have come to know what it is. So. Who is Ka?

The first impact of Ka is one of tremendous strangeness, bewilderment and disorientation. How can a Western tradition which demands to identify a beginning and an end understand one that sees no beginning and no end, but only an eternal tangle?

As Ka unfolds, we are amazed at our own sense of recognition, for these stories seem to confirm or to articulate for the first time, our own deepest perceptions about our human condition.
