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.
