The Vedantic Self And The Jungian Psyche
The Vedantic Self And The Jungian Psyche
Description
Back of the Book

Psychological theories are based on the experiences of the one construction the theory. If the Vedantic Self becomes a differentiated component of one’s experience then it will naturally weave its way into one’s psychological model of the mind.

New knowledge affects the old. Such has always been the case. As we go on learning and differentiating our experience our theories change to accommodate our growth. In this case if the existence of the Vedantic Self is differentiated from the psyche then new knowledge is produced in that act of differentiation which then must be accounted for in the formulation of the psychological theories that inform our work.

According to Vedanta it is the lack of differentiation of the self from the psyche and world that is responsible for our pain and suffering and so the solution to our problems lies ultimately in Self Knowledge. Psychological health in Vedanta depends on this differentiation. To the degree that a person identifies the self with that which it is not through either projection or superimposition to that degree the person suffers.

Preface

In my first book the Jungian Myth and Advaita Vedanta the emphasis was more philosophical in nature integrating the Jungian containing myth with the vision of Advaita Vedanta. My feeling was that an understanding of Jung would add something of Significance to the Vedantic means for attaining a relative state of emotional well being while Vedanta would give to Jung’s model of the psyche nondual wholeness a dimension of the psyche and world not properly understood by Jung. This book the Vedantic Self and Jungian Psyche continues on with the same theme the focus concentrating now on the healing capacity of each discipline and their integration into a greater whole.

To understand Jungian psychology as Jung often stated one has to experiences it that is one has to go through the process of analysis themselves. Similarly to understand the vision of Vedanta one has to be taught by a teacher who has himself or herself undergone its teaching methodology. Both disciplines require a seeing of what is being said. Neither can be grasped if only experienced academically in the third person. And so it is difficult to ask a book to do what really requires a living relationship. But still the written word can be handled in such a way that a careful reader can gain insights that touch his or her personal experience in meaningful and transformative ways. I have written the book with this intention and hope that you the reader will find it helpful.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.
Colette, Canada
I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
This is a beautiful website - and very customer friendly - easy to find your way around.
Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
