Taken as a totality-as they are in our tradition-the four Purusharthas are holistic. They offer us a vision and a goal that can heal the deadly division of life into material vs. spiritual-a wound that many philosophical and theological traditions have inflicted on us. They offer ethical and mystical goals implied in dharma and moksha, but they do so without despising in any way the worldly goals of production and pleasure. This book will surely encourage readers to take a look at their purpose in life and to seek wholeness in a dialogue between the modern world and the best of our past.
