Swami Vivekananda on Indian Philosophy and Literature
Swami Vivekananda on Indian Philosophy and Literature
Description
About the Book:

This volume contains its author's lectures at the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture in his capacity as the Institute's Vivekananda Professor of Indology and Indological Research. The author deals with Swami Vivekananda's approach to four of our six systems of philosophy and his observations are based on Swamiji's references to them available in the eight volumes of his Complete Works. As a supplement to this material the author deals with Swami Vivekananda's approach to the Upanishads and the Bhagavadgita. Swami Vivekananda's ideas of comparative religion, his response to Western Indology, Western philosophy and his view of history are here discussed perhaps for the first time in some detail. The tenth chapter deals with Swami Vivekananda and his Master Sri Ramakrishna to show that Swamiji interpreted Vedanta in terms of the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna who was to him Vedanta's greatest human exemplar. The twelfth chapter deals with a theme on which a great deal has been written. The author has tried to define Swami Vivekananda's idea of universal religion with reference to his observations on it as available in his Complete Works.

About the Author:

Born in Kolkata in 1915, the author was educated in Kolkata and Oxford. He was Tagore Professor of Bengali, and Head of the Department of Modern Indian Languages and Dean, Faculty of Arts, Delhi University and retired as Director of the National Library in 1980. He has been Swami Vivekananda Professor of Indological Studies at the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Kolkata, since April 1994.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
