CONCIOUSNESS IN Advaita Vedanta
CONCIOUSNESS IN Advaita Vedanta
Description
About the Book:

The nature of consciousness or human awareness is one of the problems of perennial concern to philosophers and psychologists alike. Here is a systematic, critical and comparative study the nature of human awareness according to the most influential school of classical Indian thought. After introducing the Advaitic Philosophical System and indicating the place of consciousness in this system, the author presents a detailed discussion of the Advaitin's unique, non-dual understanding of man's basic intelligence. He continues with an analysis of the Advaitin's hierarchical vision of walking, dream and dreamless sleep experience, and compares this analysis with the thought of such western thinkers as Husserl, Freud and Jung. He concludes with a discussion of the Advaitic conception of liberation and the radical implications this understanding of human freedom presents to modern man. This book is a systematic, critical and comparative treatment of the Advaitic theory of consciousness, and one which will prove valuable to students of Indian philosophy as well as to a broader audience interested in the perennial question of the nature of human awareness.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
