Mind and Supermind (2 Volumes)
Mind and Supermind (2 Volumes)
Description
From the Jacket

Astonishingly rich is the heritage of Indian psychology. Embodied in some of the better known, traditional philosophical systems, it convincingly spell out the rationale behind memory, recognition, emotions, instincts, reasoning, creativity, and myriad other mind related phenomena, which sofar remain baffling, unanswered question in modern cognitive science, mechanistic psychology and their kindred discipline. Mind and Supermind, for the first time, systematically unfolds vedantic psychology in its larger effort not only to evolve an integrated perspective on mind, but also to synthesize ancient wisdom with contemporary sciences.

A distinguished scholar of Sanskrit, philosophy and science, professor Panda here re-explores the nature of mind, its Indian concept and how it compares with its Western world-view: religious, philosophical, psychological and scientific. Thus elaborating the concepts of mind as set out in the Sankhya, Yoga, Tantra, Vedanta and other orthodox systems vis-à-vis (a) philosophical perspective: from Plato and Aristotle to Wittgenstein and Strawson, (b) psychological viewpoints of William James, Freud Jug, Watson and others, (c) theories of modern physiologists governing brain, mind and artificial intelligence; the author builds a solid foundation for the supernatural of parapsychological phenomena. And also speculates about the possibilities for mind to link up with the Supermind which in Vedantic concept, is Brahman: fundamental Consciousness that illumines everything-living and non-living.

Growing from years of Dr. Panda's indepth, analytical studies, the book is offered to discerning audiences in two parts: Indian Perspective and Western Perspective with relevant illustrative material.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
