Atmatattvaviveka by Udayanacarya
Atmatattvaviveka by Udayanacarya
Description
About the Book:

This is a voluminous philosophical treatise in Sanskrit which seeks to defend the Nyaya Vaisesika conception of self by critically examining and refuting the Buddhist doctrine of Universal momentariness, unreality of the objective world and so on that are directly or indirectly opposed to the reality of self. As a work of unrelenting and sustained polemics, Atmatattvaviveka ha no parallel in the philosophical literature of India or the West. Udayanacarya the author of the work was a giant of a scholar who syncretised the Nyaya and Vaisesika schools and put them on a firm logical foundation by writing both destructive and constructive works on the philosophy of the schools. The controversy between Nyaya Vaisesika and Buddhism dates back to the 2nd century AD when Vatsysysna wrote his Bhasya commentary on the Nyayasutras and criticized therein the views of Nagarjuna, Vasubandhu etc. the great Madhyamika Buddhists. The process of criticism and counter-criticism of each other views in the Nyaya Vaisesika and the Buddhist schools continued unabated after the advent of Vatsyayana's Bhasya for about a thousand years. Only when

They appeared on the scene did the age-old controversy between the two hostile philosophical camps came to an abrupt end. No Buddhist scholar ever dared to challenge the criticism of the Buddhist views contained in the Atmatattvaviveka. Many eminent scholars have commented upon this work. In preparing this translation-sum-explanation of the work all-important commentaries of the work available today have been utilized. Philosophical issues of current interest are also incidentally discussed in the work.

About the Author:

He come of an illustrious family of Nyaya and Vedanta scholars domiciled in Varanasi. He was trained in Nvyanyaya by the traditional method for over 12 years by his brother the Late Rajeshwar Shastri the famous Naiyayika and his famous pupil the late Hariram Shastri. He studied Western philosophy and Buddhism in M. A. in the Banaras Hindu University under the guidance of the late Professor T. R. V. Murthy. For his Ph. D thesis He chose Nyaya Epistemology as his subject. When the Nagpur University took over post-graduate teaching in 1959 he was appointed as the first head of the Post-graduate philosophy department of the university. During his teaching career in the university spanning over 25 years he actively participated as symphsiast and chairman in many all Indian seminars and conferences and also contributed several philosophical papers to English, Hindi and Marathi journals of repute. In 1976 he visited the University of Hawaii, USA as Associate Professor of Philosophy and worked there in the faculty colloquium, which were greatly appreciated. On his retirement in 1984, he joined IIAS Shimla to work on Atmatattvaviveka.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
