Indian Philosophical Systems
Indian Philosophical Systems
Description
Preface

Philosophy in India is not a product of speculation but of experience, direct and personal. A true philosopher is he whose life and behaviour bear testimony to the truths he preaches.

Every system of philosophy in India is a quest for Truth, which is one and the same, always and everywhere. The modes of approach differ, logic varies, but the purpose remains the same-trying to reach that Truth.

The basic unity of the different systems of philosophy was underlined at the seminar on the subject held at the Institute on 3 February 1990. The seminar was attended by over one hundred distinguished scholars from different universities. The papers read at this seminar are reproduced in this book. Distinguished scholars of philosophy read papers at the seminar which was held with financial support from the Pritilata Kanjilal Endowment created at this Institute by her niece, Mrs. Leena Mukherjee. We hope the papers incorporated in this book will provide food for thought to all interested in Indian philosophy.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
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.
