    Vada in Theory and Practice by: Radhavallabh Tripathi 1,170.00

    Vada, meaning debates, dialogues, discussions, was the quintessential of Indian spirit, enabling and promoting the growth of different philosophical and knowledge systems of India. It percolated deep into our mindset and enriched the moral, ethical, religious and sociocultural edifice of anything that was essentially Indian in nature. As continuation of Anvikshiki from the bc era, vada helped thrive Indian traditional knowledge systems. It subsists on diversity and its tradition envisages pluralism.
    Most of our Sanskrit works, covering a wide gamut of knowledge systems, are structured in the techniques of debate. This reality applies not only to the philosophical writings, but to Indian medical systems (Ayurveda), Arthashastra of Kautilya and Kamasutra of Vatsyayana as well. Even great epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata are no exceptions.
    Vada culture involved verbal duals, attacks and even violence of speech, and all major religious systems — old or modern — were parties to it. This book also elucidates how vata was vital and critical for the growth of our socio-political fabrics. It shows how some of the major conflicts in philosophical systems were centred around karma, jnana, choice between violence and non-violence, pravritti and nivritti. It also presents the manifestations of vada on a vast canvas during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Modern spiritual and religious gurus like Ramana Maharshi, J. Krishnamurti and Vinoba Bhave were men of dialogues. Our scholars have applied the varied techniques of vada against the philosophical and scientific systems of the West to prove them correct.
    This collector’s issue should enthrall a wide audience of philosophers, scholars and believers in Indian knowledge systems.

    Vaisesika-Sutra of Kanada by: Debasish Chakrabarty 225.00

    Kanada’s Vaisesika Sutra, the textual basis for the Nyaya-Vaisesika system and the later Navya-Nyaya system, may be termed the earliest exposition on physics in Indian philosophy. It presents one of the earliest discussions on the idea of atomicity and on the true nature of knowledge as comprising the categories of dravya (substance), guna (attribute), karma (action), samanya (generality), visesa (particularity) samavaya (inherence) and abhava (non-existence). This book presents the original Sanskrit text of the Vaisesika Sutra along with its Roman transliteration and a translation in the English language. The lucid translation is a scholarly attempt to retain the feel of the original sutras while conveying the intended meaning accurately and is easy to comprehend owing to many special features. Additional words are added in the translated text for the benefit of syntax but they are placed in parenthesis. The translated text has sub-titles that aid in simplifying the arguments by grouping the sutras. Besides, footnotes are provided to explain technical terms and concepts in the original Sanskrit. The book, published under the Shastra Group of Centre of Linguistic and English at Jawaharlal Nehru University which had earlier brought out the Yogasatra of Patanjali, will prove useful to all researchers and students of ancient Indian philosophy.

    Vedanta: The Science of Consciousness by: Omana S 1,080.00

    Sree Narayana Guru (1856–1928), an enlightened seer, represents Vedanta as a Science of Consciousness or pure Epistemology. This book deals with Guru’s epistemology and shows how it can eliminate many of the problems in philosophy and life.
    The Guru conceives Consciousness or Arivu as the one all underlying Reality that assumes the form of everything in the world, both mind and matter.
    Epistemologists are usually either idealists or realists, but the Guru is neither. To him there is no need to place one above the other since they are two manifest forms of one Consciousness.
    Many eminent persons have tried to solve the problem of consciousness, but could not succeed because they were not ready to consider man as a pure being and the essence of the world as Consciousness.
    To the Guru, in every event of knowing there is the coming together of subject, object and also the function of knowing. These three are Consciousness in essence. What we really need is awareness of it. All kinds of divisiveness, conflicts and crises can be solved through an awakening of the inner consciousness of man which is non-different from the one all underlying Reality titled Brahman, Atman or Consciousness.

    दार्शनिक समीक्षा का सत्याग्रह (Darshanika Samiksha Ka Satyagraha) by: Ambika Datta Sharma 675.00

    दार्शनिक समीक्षा का सत्याग्रह नामधेय यह कृति मेरे द्वारा दिए गए व्याख्यानों का एक परिमार्जित संग्रह है। यह सभी व्याख्यान भारत के प्रतिष्ठित शिक्षा संस्थानों में 2017-18 के दौरान भारतीय दार्शनिक अनुसन्धान परिषद् के अतिथि आचार्य (विजटिंग प्रोफेसर) के रूप में दिए गए थे। ऐसे संग्रह-ग्रन्थ में विचार केन्द्रित अन्विति नहीं होती, और यदि होती भी है तो उसे विचारक-केन्द्रित अन्विति के रूप में ही परखा जा सकता है। विचारों में विचारक-केन्द्रित अन्विति अनुप्रास युक्त पदों से निर्मित एक वाक्य की तरह होती है जिसके अलग-अलग पद आनुप्रासिक सौन्दर्य के साथ अर्थ का अभिधान करते हैं। इसी प्रकार का आनुप्रासिक सौन्दर्य एक व्यक्ति के बहुविध वैचारिक उपक्रमों की सार्थकता होती है। दार्शनिक समीक्षा के रूप में समाकलित इन सभी व्याख्यानों की अन्विति उनके सत्याग्रही होने में है। विचार का सत्य विचारों के मूलगामी अर्थ को उद्घाटित करना है। समीक्षा जब इस उद्देश्य के साथ प्रवर्तित होती है तभी “सत्याग्रह” उसका विशेषण बनता है।
