Description
About The Book

In the beginning of this book, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura writes, “Who am I? What is this world? What relation have I with this world?” To learn the truth, a soul in this material world will always ask himself these questions. He then says, “Because of their different natures, those who ask these questions attain a great variety of answers. Only a soul situated in his original spiritual form attains the true answers.”

The aim of philosophy is certainly to ascertain the truth regarding ourselves, this world, and our purpose in life. In this book is pointed out that throughout history there have been innumerable attempts to answer these questions and each is somewhat different because each philosopher has a different nature acquired by material conditioning. Thus, although the truth is one, we are presented with innumerable philosophies and thus may become confused.

Introduction

Tattva-viveka was written in 1893. In this unique book, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura takes a look at innumerable philosophies, both Eastern and Western, and points out their mistakes. In the course of this short work, the author describes the Greek philosophers Leucippus, Democritus, Plato and Aristotle; Diderot and Lamettrie of France; Lucretius of Italy Von Holbach of Germany; Yangchoo of Carvaka of India; and Englishmen Mill, Lewis Paine, Carlyle, Bentham, and Combe.

After saying this much, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura goes on to describe a great variety of philosophies, which he groups of similarities. What we then find is a very thorough and insightful analysis of prominent philosophies, some of them theistic and many of them atheistic. I found one analysis of a very popular philosophy propounded by certain religions to be very sharp, to-the-point, and indeed devastating. The persons who profess to adhere to this philosophy are not named, but anyone can easily understand who they are.

Only a pure devotee of the Lord coming in disciplic succession, such as Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, could survey the entire history of philosophy in less than one hundred pages and made such clear and convincing conclusions. For this reason, I find this to be a unique and remarkable work in the vast library of Vaisnava literature. It was pure pleasure to go through the wonderful translation by Kusakratha Prabhu and I am confident that every reader of this small book will garner a great deal of insight into the subjects of philosophy and religion.

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!

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.
