THE TRADITION OF ADVAITA (Essays in Honour of Bhasyabhavajna V.R. Kalyanasundara Sastri)
THE TRADITION OF ADVAITA (Essays in Honour of Bhasyabhavajna V.R. Kalyanasundara Sastri)
Description

About the Book

Like the immortal Brahman which supports the tree of the world, the principle of Advaita which is embedded in the Veda is the source and support of the tree of the philosophical tradition in India. The pulsating tradition of Advaita which is as old as the Veda contains the essentials of the philosophia perennis. This Felicitation Volume brought out in honour of Pandit Kalyanasundara Sastri deals with some doctrines and concepts of the Advaita tradition. The Basic doctrines of Advaita are only three: the non-duality of Brahman, the unreality of the world, and the identity of jiva with Brahman. Advaita makes use of a few concepts and formulates a number of arguments in justification f these three doctrines. The eleven essays contributed to this volume by distinguished scholars analyse the implications of the basic doctrines of Advaita, elucidate some of the difficult concepts which have been pressed into service by the great teachers of Advaita, classical as well as contemporary, and examine the various arguments formulated by the advaitins.

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)
