It is not just the magnum opus, but a truly monumental effort of a scientist-philosopher who has spent a whole lifetime to formulate a unitive science, wherein all disciplines of human questing could find a common ground a science where modern science and ancient spiritual wisdom could meet and merge like two opposite poles of a magnet. As a direct disciple of one of the great risis of the modern age, Nataraja Guru discovers this common ground in Brahma-vidya, which he calls the Integrated science of the Absolute and which has, at its base, his guru's Darsana Mala.
A string of hundred Sanskrit verses, composed by the mystic-poet, Narayana Guru (1854-1928), the Darsana Mala is the very epitome of all vision s to truth-inspired by his remarkable acquisitions of Upanisadic thought and yet far more by his own tapas. Reproducing these highly significative verses in Roman script, along with English translations, work meanings, and extensive commentaries, Nataraja Guru not only spells out his mentoru's Visions of the Absolute in contemporary idiom, but also shows how these visions are fully validated by modern science.
Eclectic Synthesis of Varied scientific disciplines into a systematic whole is not all that Nataraja Guru accomplishes here. Rather his book is an attempt to re-introduce Brahma-Vidya as the one Master Science that embraces every branch of science every human interest.
