Preface

The present work is a collection of a few papers some of which have already been published in some journals. The majority of the papers entered into this work are concerned with tantra and Sri Caitanya’s Vaisnavism. A few papers on the philosophies of Badarayana’s, Samkhya-Yoga and Vijnanavada have also been incorporated into ] ]” body of the work. The aim of all these papers is to wipe out some misconceptions about the Tantric practiced and also about some aspects of the philosophies of Sri Caitanya’s Vaisnavism, Badarayana’s Brahma-sutra, Samkhya-yoga and vijnanavada. Popularly, most of the Tantric practices are thoughts to be nasty and horrific ; we have endeavored to show that these are actually not so, rather they are all divine. Sri Caitanya’s philosophy is looked upon as quite contradictory to that of Sankara; we have to tried to establish that it is not so, the difference between these two systems lying only in the fact that Sankara puts emphasis on some aspect of the Absolute and Sri Caitanya on another, likewise we have made an attempt to demonstrate that Badarayana’s philosophy, which has been interpreted by so many commentators in so many ways, is one of bhedabheda or difference-cum-non-difference and that the philosophy of Patanjala-Yoga is quite in harmony with the other Yoga-treatises and also with the Upanisads. We hope that our thoughts contained in these papers will give a new dimension to the interpretations of the philosophical concepts concerned.

I am very much thankful to Sri S.K Bhattacharya of Punthi-Pustak who has taken a keen interest in this work and published it within a short span of time.

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.

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.
