Book Description

About the Book
This book is the outline of Indian Philosophy. This is composed of the nature of mind, consciousness and matter, ātmā, psychic life, sense organs, linga-deha, pralaya and kalpa, prāṇa, karma, etc.

This also speaks about param Brahma, Vedanta sūtras, sänkhya, puruşa, prakṛti, gunas, draşta and drasya, isvara in yoga, māya, sakti, advaita, the mīmāmsā, arthavada, apurva, etc. In addition to it, Supreme Reality, the theory of Coinhesence, ahaṁkāra, tanmatra, the fluxes, sṛsti, vidya tattvas, atma tattvas, Śiva tattva and hinarchics of Devis, etc. are also the important topics of the book.

In short, the book will certainly prove to be very useful for the readers.

I have, in the following pages, attempted to separate the varied threads of the tangled skin of modern Hindu philosophical thought and religious beliefs. Each school of ancient thought was based on a special point of view of its own and was promulgated for the purpose of emphasizing the particular standpoint which appealed to the persons that founded and elaborated that school. But "as the water that rains from the sky goes all to the ocean" and once mixed with the ocean, the contributory streams become indistinguishable from one another, so modern Hinduism has received the tribute of the Upanisads, the Sankhya-yoga, the Vaiseşika-nyaya and the triple Agamas, and its wonderful tolerance has intricately mixed up all these elements. I have endeavored to separate all those elements and exhibit separately the teachings of these ancient systems.

In doing so, I have attempted to discuss the ideas of the earliest available exposition of each school. In India, thinkers, however independent they may be, whatever new vistas of thought they may open up, are compelled by inexorable orthodoxy to father their opinions on the ancients. The boldest thinker this country has produced, Sankara, felt it necessary to seek the sanction of orthodoxy by deriving his new ideas from the old Brahma Sutras and the older Upanisads. Being a philosopher, he had to pretend to be a scholiast.
