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.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
