Description
Preface

These proceedings are the record of a Workshop which took place on 16,17 & 18 June 1987 at Melkote. For us in the Academy the gathering was a watershed in our progress. In its decade—long career the Academy had organized many a Vidvatgosthi ( Vidvatgosthi -gathering of scholars). They were confined to Vedantic topics. In this Workshop however the subject matter extended to both science and Vedanta. The Academy was entering a new arena as it were.

The seed of the idea of a multi-disciplinary workshop on Consciousness was sown in our minds by Dr. R.M. Varma, Emeritus Director of the National institute of Mental Health and Neuro-Sciences, with the active support of Dr. E.C.G. Sudarshan, eminent physicist. We are greatly beholden to them. That the germ of the idea could sprout at Melkote was due to the expert ground-work of Prot. M. A. Lakshmithathachar, the Registrar and mainstay of the Academy. The learned scholars who are members of the Managing Committee of the Academy backed his efforts enthusiastically.

When the first intimations of the Workshop were circulated, our objectives were stated in these terms: " ..... to analyze the viewpoint of both the Scientists and the Vedantins, to examine if a common approach to the concept of Consciousness could be found and in any case to define the Vedantic concept of Consciousness in Terminology acceptable to the scientific world."

When the workshop actually took place, it covered wider ground. This was very gratifying. The papers and discussions were so interesting and thought filled that it was thought fit to prepare the proceedings as a full publication rather than a brief report.

Compilation of these proceedings was a daunting task. That it has taken so long is because the translation work and the job of transcribing the taped talks and discussions into readable script proved very time consuming. Much team work has gone into this follow up effort under the leadership of Prof. Lakshmitanthachar who also did most of the Sanskrit of English translations dispite numerous demands on his time. Much thanks are due to him more than all the entire task of editing raw transcriptions and the papers organizing the overall structure and doing even some of the Sanskrit to English translations apart from proof correction was an enormous burden willingly borne by the President of the Academy Sri M.A.S. Rajan. He also tackled the uphill task of putting the different strands of thought together into in overview. This publication owes a great deal to his zeal and hard work.

We are in debt also to all the eminent scholars who participated in the workshop the esteemed people who attended it as well to all those who worked of its smooth progress.

The academy hopes that the proceedings will prove to be a useful addition to the literature on the subject consciousness.

Testimonials

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!
Pablo, Germany
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)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
