From the Jacket

The Vibrating Universe synthesizes the super string theory of modern physics and the vibration concept of Advaita Vedanta and Kashmiri Saivism. The philosophical problem of monism versus pluralism, as given in Indian philosophy, Western philosophy and classical as well as modern science, has been analytically presented. In this attempt, dualism and pluralism have been rejected, and non-dualism has been re-established. A vibration theory has been successfully brought out with a fusion of the doctrines of the Vedantic vibration, the Saiva vibration and the super string vibration of modern physic. A confluence of the concept of non-dualistic Vedanta, Kashmiri Saiva monism, cosmology, astrophysics, super string theory, relativity theory and quantum mechanics is clearly visible in the book. As the vibrations of a violin string produce multiplicity of musical notes, so does the super string that vibrates and thereby generates the apparent plurality of the universe. The Reality is one and only one that always remains unmanifested and unperceived, although not unexperienced. The power of the Reality manifests through the plurality of the phenomenal universe-Maya or Prakrti is constituted of three strings (sattva, rajas and tamas) that vibrate to produce the pluralistic, phenomenal universe.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
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.
