Preface

The following lectures were delivered by me under the Extension Scheme of the University of Poona during my sabbatical leave from the College of Wooster, Wooster, Ohio. I appreciate very much the opportunity given me by the University of Poona to present some of my thoughts on Comparative Philosophy in a fairly connected form. The University preferred making my lectures general, and not technical. But comparative philosophy, being a subject about philosophies which are always more or less technical, cannot be very elemental. It is a philosophy about philosophies. Some readers may, therefore, find the lectures not general enough, but terse with a number of specialist's terms, while others may find them not _ technical enough, but referring to theories, their implications, and methods only in a general way. But this situation cannot be avoided, unless one writes a full-fledg-ed book. Many of the points made out in the first and last lectures can be and, it is hoped, will be developed in the future by working out all the technicalities involved.

My interest in Comparative Philosophy dates back to a few years before 1937 when my first book Thought and Reality: Hegelianisin and Advaita, was published, and I have been writing and speaking all along on the subject. Some of the ideas and paragraphs of the following lectures are, therefore, not absolutely new. But many of them are appearing in print perhaps for the first time. I hope these lectures will create in the young generation, particularly in the eastern lands, interest in the subject, which will take on a fully systematic form in the future.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
