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.

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!
Anir, UK
Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi
Florence Ambika, USA
I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
Beverly, USA
