About this title

Synopsis:

The Advaita Vedanta is the pinnacle of Indian thought.According to many scholars it is the most logical system of Indian Philosophy,and the Sanskrit texts dealing with Advaiata Vedanta are the crest jewel of Sanskrit literature.What had once been a philosophy known only to the elite in India,was made available to all through out the world when Swami Vivekananda's illuminating lectures in the west on Advaita Vedanta were published.Many non-indian scholars have in recent times been fascinated by the philosophy Advaita Vedanta and have set about studying Sanskrit in earnest,though the Sanskrit language stands as a barrier to many. A Dictionary of Advaita Vedanta is a humble endeavour to help such scholars have easy access to the basic ideas of Advaita Vedanta. The Dictionary is not an encyclopedia but will be handy and should serve as reckoner to those students of Advaita Vedanta who do not know Sanskrit but understand English. This book is the fruit of combined labour of a few competent scholars,headed by the eminent Prof.Niriod Baran Chakraborty

Review:

Advaita Vedanta (IAST Advaita Ved nta; Sanskrit is considered as the most influential sub-school of the Ved nta (literally, end or the goal of the Vedas, Sanskrit) school of Hindu philosophy. Other sub-schools of Ved nta are Dvaita and Vi isht dvaita. Advaita (literally, non-duality) is a monistic system of thought. "Advaita" refers to the identity of the Self (Atman) and the Whole (Brahman).[ The key source texts for all schools of Ved nta are the Prasthanatrayi the canonical texts consisting of the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and the Brahma Sutras. The first person to explicitly consolidate the principles of Advaita Vedanta was Adi Shankara,while the first historical proponent was Gaudapada, the guru of Shankara's guru Govinda Bhagavatpada. --Wikipedia
