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.

About the Author

Nrusingh Charan Panda is the 1929-born scientist Emeritus-Having retired form the Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneswar, as Professor and Dean of the Veterinary Faculty. Notwithstanding his specialization in Nutritional Biochemistry with M.Sc. and PhD degrees of the University of Missouri, Columbia, USA, Dr. Panda is essentially a versatile personality, combining in him the endowments of a scientist, a Sanskritist, a philosopher, and a litterateur. And his achievement have been recognized, at different times, with a number of prestigious awards honours, like the Membership of America's Gamma Sigma Delta Society, Orissa Sahitya Academy Award and Sarlala Award.

Internationally reputed for his scientific interpretations of Vedic literature. Professor Panda has also authored the widely acclaimed books: Maya in Physics and The Vibrating Universe. His is at once integral, synthetic, holistic approach.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
