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 have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
