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.

Testimonials
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.
