Further reading on Hindu philosophy?

I have read most of the Vedas (Rg Veda, the Gita, Upanisads, Brahma-Sutra) and some introductions.

I have a strong connection with Advaita Vedanta, but also Hare Krishna (even though they are opposing)

Are there any books I can read to learn more? I dont know what type, but maybe in-depth introductions, commentaries on the Vedas, accounts of life inside the groups, or even just basic devotional books.

Hope anyone can help me

    I guess you could read the Jataka tales and look up sariputra. But these are buddhist claims about Hare Krishna, so you might not be interested.

    I believe in Krishna i own a Bhagavad gita, which is part of the Mahabharata. Go to a library or something and ask them what books they have on the subject.

    Vedham can neither be read nor written.

    one can do only Adhyayanam of Vedha.Even one Zhaaka of one Vedham takes about 7.5.years.of learnibg with a Guru.

    One may please Listen the following and then say whether one has "REALLY READ" Vedham.

    Google:- "Ghanam Recital by Pandit Chandrasekhara Dravid and Pandit Ramana"--2009 video and NOT 2010 video where the quality of "Audio" s NOT good.--5.35 minutes--please listen fully.

    what they are reciting is "Just" only ONE "Rica"--(Verse) from Krishna Yajur Vedham--there are 10,600 Rcas in Rig Vedham alone
