About This Book

Professor Rama Rao Pappu, who has been teaching philosophy in US universities since the sixties founded the "International Congress of Vedanta" in 1986 at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, USA. Vedanta Congresses initiated and organized systematically and selflessly by Dr. Pappu during the past nineteen years have played a very productive and positive role. Most of the essays included here are the papers presented by the contributors at the "Fifteenth International Congress of Vedanta" apart from the invited essays contributed by Professor Pappu's friends and admirers in India and abroad.

Essays in this volume have been arranged in six sections covering the areas of Vedanta Metaphysics, Advaita Epistemology and Ethics, Schools of Vedanta and other systems, Global Parallels and finally Vedanta and the Contemporary World. Both intellectually stimulating and academically entertaining, this volume contains analytic discussions on Shankara, Ramanuja, Madhva, Vallabha and Tyagaraja. Enlightening articles on Radhakrishnan, Sri Satya Saibaba and Sunderlal Bahuguna are also included. As a whole, covering the concepts of Adhyasa, Sakshi, and Jivan-mukti, perspectives on Shruti, Yukti, and Tarka, discussions on Yoga, Tantra and Music and the East-West Parallels have culminated in Sartrean Existentialism and Chinese Dao.
