Reality and Mysticism
Reality and Mysticism
Description
About the Book

Since ancient times, philosophers and scholars have attempted to study and analyse the profound thoughts of the Upanisads in order to unravel their true meaning. The lectures presented here are a fresh analysis of the Upanisadic thinking with respect to reality, knowledge and consciousness.

Prof. Puligandla here attempts to reveal the central Upanisadic insights and the significance of the observations to modern scientific thought. He come up with some important ideas on the nature of the ultimate reality, compatibility of science, religion and philosophy, and the Upanisadic teaching vis-à-vis modern science. He also successfully dispels crucial misunderstanding of Sankara's philosophy and that of Nagarjuna.

The speciality of the book is the author's novel interpretation of mysticism as an effective instrument of Brahma jnana or knowledge of Reality. In a bold and intellectually stimulating presentation, Prof. Puligandla shows that the mysticism of the Indian tradition, far from being illogical irrational, is meant to awaken and inspire the seeker's mind for the quest of the ultimate reality. Such knowledge even transcends all forms of catogorial knowledge.

This work is an extremely absorbing scholarly masterpiece characterized by a unique understanding of Upanisadic thought. Its lively analytical discussion of the Upanisads would present a new perspective to serious scholars of philosophy.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
