An Enquiry into Psychology Soul and Absolute
An Enquiry into Psychology Soul and Absolute
Description

From the Jacket

This book, An Enquiry into Psychology, Soul and absolute by Swami Prajnanananda, is a brief but critical survey of the problem of Psychology, Soul and Absolute.

The soul or self is the prime-mover of the mind, its modifications and its functions, but the Absolute is above all of them. This book has thrown sufficient light upon those principles, mind, soul and Absolute, and has made their status and stands clear.

The book has further discussed about different schools of psychology and their findings, and has solved their problems with the help of arguments and rational views, as maintained and forwarded by Swami Abhedananda in his illuminating book, True Psychology.

This book has solved many mysteries of psychology and philosophy, and has come to the conclusion that the true knowledge of the Absolute is the only means to go beyond the mind and to cut asunder the knot of nescience that binds men head to foot in the trap of worldliness.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
