View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

A novel and provocative point of view which holds that Vedanta from time immemorial has come in the way of the growth of rationalism in India. The author sees the Vedanta as the "opium-of-the-people" a metaphysical-mystical potion concocted by princes, landlords and priests to hold the masses down. He sees Buddhism as the friend of rationalism and finds sense in Nature and other popular deities of the masses. 8.6 by 5.5 inches.
