Description

Back of the Book

The problem of value erosion is not only a national but also an international issue today. In the past, religions prescribed moral and ethical values and people; followed them generally, even if some people flouted them. Being based on authority of a holy book or person they could not be questioned but had to be simply obeyed. With the advancement of modern science and critical enquiry, religions lost that power and moral values lost their hold on millions of people, especially under the force of the philosophy of materialism upheld by many scientists.

But the science of biology today advocates the need for values in the human phase of evolution of which, as Julian Huxley says, the human being has now become the Trustee. No physical science, however, has knowledge of the source of the science of values. The present book deals with these problems very lucidly and rationally and presents India's answer to these problems through its philosophy of Vedanta which proclaims that the science of values is the link between the physical sciences and the science of spirituality.

 

Preface

The problem of value erosion is not only a national but also an international issue today. In the past, religions pre- scribed moral and ethical values and people followed them generally, even if some people flouted them. Being based on authority of a holy book or person they could not be ques- tioned but had to be simply obeyed. With the advancement of modern science and critical enquiry, religions lost that power and moral values lost their hold on millions of people, especially under the force of the philosophy of materialism upheld by many scientists.

But the science of biology today advocates the need for values in the human phase of evolution of which, as Julian Huxley says, the human being has now become the Trustee. No physical science, however, has knowledge of the source of the science of values. The present book deals with these problems very lucidly and rationally and presents India's answer to these problems through its philosophy of Vedanta which proclaims that the science of values is the link between the physical sciences and the science of spirituality. The book is based on the cassette record of four lectures delivered by Revered Swami Ranganathanandaji, Vice-President, Rama- krishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, on Practical Vedanta and the Science of values on four consecutive Sundays starting the 9th August 1992 at Ramakrishna Math Vivekananda Auditorium, Hyderabad, India. The author expects that other thinkers will come forward and contribute further to this important subject on which depends the very survival of human culture.

The publisher hopes that the book on an important subject of supreme relevance to humanity will be welcomed by readers everywhere.

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.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

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.
Andreas, Germany.
