Any transcendental literature, whose aim is to understand the ultimate reality i.e. the Vedantic Brahman and Atman , is Veda. Anyone who is looking for the supreme soul or Lord is actually following Vedic philosophy. Vedic transcendental consciousness is the way of life seeking the soul and self, the real essence of life. I think that in Eliot’s ‘Murder in the Cathedral’ Thomas Becket’s spiritual odyssey is to seek his real soul and Self passing through different temptations in life....

There is no explicit or direct connection to Christian symbolism in Golding’s Lord of the Flies.  The extracted biblical parallels function as a kind of subtle motif in the novel. They add thematic resonance to the main idea of the story. The island itself reflects the Garden of Eden in its status as an originally pristine place that is corrupted by the introduction of evil. Similarly, one may see the Lord of the Flies as a representation of the devil, as it works to promote evil among...
