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.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
