Wisdom The Absolute is Adorable
Wisdom The Absolute is Adorable
Description
From the Back of the Book

The strikingly innovation elucidation charts out the structural map of wisdom-the finalized knowledge concerning life, both in its generic and specific aspects. Nataraja Guru, the eminent contemporary thinker, handles the theme as well as the methodology in a very original way. Thematically it encom-passes the entire range of human wisdom, including epistemology, axiology, mathematics, sociology, politics and mysticism. The author presents a scheme of coherent pattern in which all distinctions between contemplative and active, functional and theoretical, contingent and necessary, Eastern and Western dissolve into the Unity of the Absolute Truth. The subject matter and object matter of wisdom when put in proper perspective around the normative notion of the Absolute culminate in the idea of common human happiness. In the age of excessive specialization and compartmentalization, Nataraja Guru's handling of the subject matter is a unique response to the legitimate cry for unification and integration. The methodology adopted throughout this interpretations unitively taking care of the vertical progress of human wisdom along with the horizontal process of adjustment with the incidental necessities that are demanded by the process.

Nataraja Guru's insightful combination of the spiritual with the modern science stands out as a tall land-Mark in the field of contemporary wisdom and scholarship. It is a powerful beacon to the solace-seeking mankind that is being tortured by the outrageously materialistic society.

About the Author

Nataraj Guru, an eminent scholar of Advaita Vedanta and a true follower of the philosopher-poet-yogi Narayana Guru, has made an epochal contribution for the advancement of knowledge and wisdom. As translator and commentator of the major works of Narayana Guru, he has also written on a wide range of subjects reflecting a scheme of correlation between science and mysticism. His D. Litt thesis, Le Factur Personnel dans le Processus Educatif, prepared under the guidance of the renowned philosopher Henri Bergson, is highly acclaimed. Narayana Gurukula a school patterned on Guru-sisya parampaa founded by him in 1923 at Varkala, Kerala, has branches all over South India and extends beyond to Singapore, Europe, USA and the South Pacific.

Thank you very much! My grandpa received the book today and the smile you put on his face was priceless. He has been trying to order this book from other companies for months now.
