Hindu Scriptures And American Transcendentalists
Hindu Scriptures And American Transcendentalists
Description
From the Jacket: In this extraordinarily candid book, Umesh Patri presents a fresh reappraisal of the impact of Indian Scriptures on American Transcendentalism which flourished in New England in the nineteenth century. The major premise of the study is that other influences on the Transcedentalists such as Chinese, Persian, Sufi, Arabic, neo-platonism, German Transcendentalism etc. are of less significanceo than that of Indian scriptures comprising Hindu and Buddhist texts.

In the writings of Emerson, Thoreau and minor Transcendentalists like Alcott, Fuller, Changing, Johnson, Brownson, etc. the influence of Indian scriptures is clearly discernible. An attempt has ben made here to show that Indian scriptures have not only influenced the philosophical thinking of these writers but also their lifestyle and social conduct. It also attempts to show that transcendentalism was not an isolated movement, but was a part of a cultural renaissance which swept the entire nation in the wake of avid interest and curiosity in ancient lores of other countries. Transcendentalism, it is suggested here, continues to affect the thinking of Americans, and can be viewed as a continuing movement of thought in American intellectual history. This book draws attention to many aspects of Transcendentalism which have not been adequately discussed so far.

About the Author:

Born at Tarbha in Balangir district of Orisssa on May 29,1946, Umesh Patri studied British and American Literature at the Gurukul Univeristy, Hardwar and obtained his Ph.D. from Utkal University in 1982. He is a regular contributor to periodicals and radio on various aspects of literature and religion. He won the Jibana Ranga literary award as an essayist in Oriya for 1980. At present he is actively involved in comparative literature and theology and supervises the doctoral studies. He is married and has a daughter.

Ina, Germany
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.
