A Study of Time in Indian Philosophy
A Study of Time in Indian Philosophy
Description
About the Book

Based on Sanskrit source material, this book is a unique attempt at presenting a comprehensive review of the widely divergent views about time in Indian thought. Clearly written, it succeeds in setting out the issues of discussion pointedly and cogently. Since the concept of time intertwines with such major concepts as that of causality, being and non-being etc., this book also 'serve as a general introduction to the classic heart of Indian philosophy.' The author 'has demonstrated a rare ability to translate technical doctrines from one tradition of thought into the language of another', and thus has made it possible - for all those who are concerned with the question of time but do not have access in the Indian conceptual world to appreciate the contributions of Indian thought with regard to this complex question.

Noteworthy is the fact that this book is the first attempt which 'successfully exposes the simple falsity' of such clichés as that the Indian view of time is 'cyclic' as opposed to Judaeo-Christian understanding of linear time. A Study of Time in Indian Philosophy therefore, renders a valuable service to all those who are concerned with cross-cultural and interreligious exchange

Fotis, Greece

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.
