The Mysticism of Ramanuja
The Mysticism of Ramanuja
Description
About the Book

Ramanuja is largely viewed as a philosopher and thinker of supreme merit. However in this present work, The Mysticism of Ramanuja, the author has attempted to present him in a new perspective, i.e., as a mystic and saint. This has been achieved by examining his many writings and detailing his innermost encounters with the Supreme Brahman. This work is a culmination of ten years research and author has based this study on the works of eminent indologists like Karmarkar, Thibaut and Van Buitenen, as well as world renowned scholars in mysticism as Rudolph Otto, Evelyn Underhill and William Johnston. It also includes a comparative study of the teachings of Ramanuja with those Christianity, something which has rarely been attempted earlier.

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)
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.
