Legacy: India - The Empire of the Spirit

Today on Far Future Horizons we are proud to present the second installment of Michael Wood’s documentary series Legacy where he traces rise of both Asian and Western civilization in one global perspective in these thought-provoking videos. 

From the crumbling ruins in the Iraqi desert to those of Greece and Rome, viewers contemplate thriving cities and complex societies that have vanished, a reminder that other nations prospered for thousands of years. Now all that remains is their legacy.

In this week’s episode we explore the legacy of India – The Empire of Spirit.

Ancient India is with us today in the living tradition of the Hindu religion, the basis of Indian culture. The traditions that are honored by millions of Hindus in the present were born in the Indus valley 5,000 years ago.

Legacy: A Search for the Origins of Civilization hosted by Michael Wood and its companion book are both available from Amazon Books. 

Another book we would like to suggest is by Michael Wood is In Search of the First Civilizations

India: The Empire of the Spirit
