About the Book

The Pancaratra school has an important place exerting its great influence on the culture, philosophy and religion of India. It has a very ancient origin shrouded in mystery. The scholars have not given the same attention to the Agama literature as they have done as regards the Vedic literature. Whatever notice has been taken of the Pancaratra literature by some eminent scholars both in the east and in the west, is not adequate.

It is generally supposed that the Pancaratra teaching is more inclined towards Ramanujacarya's Vigistadvaita than to Sankaratarya's Advaita. It is the main contention of the present author in this study that it is a superficial understanding of the Pancaratra that has led to this misconception. He is of the firm opinion that in spite of some of the doctrines which are suggestive of the Vigistadvaita Philosophy, there is an overwhelming evidence in the texts which convincingly indicates the basic advaitic position of the Pancaratra school.

Tina, USA
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.
