When Emerson went to see Carlyle, Carlyle gave him a copy of the Geetha. When he read the Geetha, Emerson said " It was as if an Empire spoke to us".
Indian Philosophy so inspired Emerson that he started a movement called the Concord Movement, which was transcendental by nature.
Transcend, says the Rig Veda, transcend this relative plane, " Nivarthdvam".
"the brilliant genius of Emerson rose in the winter nights, and hung over Boston, drawing the eyes of ingenuous young people to look up to that great new start, a beauty and a mystery, which charmed for the moment, while it gave also perennial inspiration, as it led them forward along new paths, and towards new hopes", said Parker.
