Maya Radhakrishnan's Thought Six Meanings Other Than Illusion
Maya Radhakrishnan's Thought Six Meanings Other Than Illusion
Description
From the Jacket

Is the world an illusion? Is ethical action in and for the world a necessary ingredient of spiritual perfection? Or do the Upanisads require an absolute idealism, which allows one to ignore the urgency of improving conditions in the materially real world? Is there ultimate value in becoming one with the world as well as with Brahman? These are some of the issues raised.

The book examines a central concept in the main philosophical tradition of India. All of President Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan's published works constitute the primary sources. ?every occurrence of the word maya is analyzed. The thesis advanced is that as a Hindu modernist he rejects the illusional meaning of maya and accepts six other meanings.

This exposition of Radhakrishnan's maya hermeneutics includes a broader explanation of his over-all thought. The book extracts and evaluates key concepts from the wide range of his philosophical writings. It also describes and assesses the central attitudes of conviction, symbols, and beliefs which constitute his religious faith.

Since Radhakrishnan (1888-1975) was such a persuasive proponent of Hindu faith and tradition, this book is also an exposition of some pivotal Hindu ideas. Consciousness, the whole, harmony, and tolerance are just a few. Unity is also discussed, particularly the alleged unity of religions. The book explores the relationship between Advaita Vedanta tradition and modernity.

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...
