Time and Eternity

By: Ananda K. Coomaraswamy

Price: $10.95

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.: 2014

Edition: Fourth Impression

Seller ID: 016662

Condition: New


Time and eternity are concepts with which every one is familiar; the former because it reserves as a unit of measurement and enables the preparation of table of days, weeks, months, years and so on, while the latter is usually associated with the idea of everlasting. If one thinks more deeply, it will be seen that time which appears to be measurable is beyond measurement and nothing is everlasting. Save the supreme principle that guides life, there is nothing which is immeasurable and external. Thus time and eternity, being associated with the supreme principle, attracted the attention of grea... View more info

What is Civilisation?

By: Ananda K. Coomaraswamy

Price: $60.00

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.: 2012

Seller ID: 116741

Condition: New


This book asks fundamental questions, which are both piercing and incisive, in Coomaraswamyís inimitable style. The first essay delves deep into the Greek and Sanskrit roots of the word, civilization, its meaning and context. In one unbroken sweep a vast spectrum from Western and Eastern civilizations is covered. Coomaraswamyís quest for Philosophia Perennis, was an unceasing commitment. The essay on the "Pertinence of Philosophy" unpeels the diverse meanings of philosophy with the touch stone of his 'Credo'. The exploration of the nature of myth and symbol was another preoccupation.... View more info

While the Bhagavad Gita is an acknowledged treasure of world spiritual literature, few people know a parallel text, the Isvara Gita. This lesser-known work is also dedicated to a god, but in this case it is Siva, rather than Krsna, who is depicted as the omniscient creator of the world. Andrew J. Nicholson’s Lord Siva’s Song makes this text available in English in an accessible new translation. A work of poetry and philosophy, the Isvara Gita builds on the insights of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra and foreshadows later developments in tantric yoga. It deals with the pluralistic religious enviro...

ISBN: 9789382396451


"It is the notion of singularity, as distinct from the universal-particular dyadic relation, that constitutes the telos of the hermeneutic practice of postmetaphysics. More precisely ... singularity is the key theme in the discourse of ontological hermeneutics as it is articulated in Heidegger and Gadamer. Singularity, it must be asserted, is not tantamount to the notion identity, let alone totality. The concept of singularity, or better singular-universal, to use the expression in order to distinguish the concept from any particularism, is inseparable from the notion of alterity and th...

Gandhi's Philosophy and the Quest for Harmony

Anthony Parel affords a novel perspective on the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi. He explores how Gandhi connected the spiritual with the temporal. As Parel points out 'being more things than one' is a good description of Gandhi and, with these words in mind, he shows how Gandhi, drawing on the Indian time-honoured theory of the purusharthas or 'the aims of life', fitted his ethical, political, aesthetic and religious ideas together. In this way Gandhi challenged the notion which prevailed in Indian society that a rift existed between the secular and the spiritual, the political and the contempla... View more info

Dattatreya: The Immortal Guru, Yogin and Avatara (A Study of the Transformative and Inclusive Character of a Multi-Faceted Hindu Deity)

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 101162

ISBN: 8170306736

This Book presents the multi-faceted Hindu deity Dattatreya from his puranic emergence up to modern times. Dattatreya's Brahmanical portrayal, as well as his even more archaic characterization as a Tantric antinomian figure, combines both Vaisnava and Saiva motifs. Over the course of time, Dattatreya has come to embody the roles of the immortal guru, yogin and avatara in a paradigmatic manner. From the sixteenth century Dattatreya's glorious characterization emerged as the incarnation of the trimurti of Brahma, Visnu, and Siva. Although Maharastra is the heartland of Dattatreya devotion, his p... View more info

Öljy on modernin kokemuksen musta sydän. Fossiiliset polttoaineet mahdollistivat modernin elämän 150 vuoden ajan. Se oli poikkeustila, jota erehdyttiin pitämään normaalina. Kun öljy ehtyy, alkaa ennennäkemätön ja arvaamaton taipale. Vaikka aavistamme tilanteen tieteellisesti ja laskennallisesti, sen filosofista merkitystä ei ole kysytty. Energia ja kokemus luo energian filosofiaa ja parantaa öljyn tajua hetkenä, jolloin fossiilikapitalismin ajattelun viimeiset askeleet ovat samalla jälkifossiilisen tulevaisuuden ensimmäisiä.

Caste conflicts ruled the roost in the nineteenth-century India. It housed many social evils like untouchability, discrimination against women and the underprivileged, and sati. Education was the prerogative of the mighty Brahmins and the upper-class society, resulting in the perennial exploitation of the backward classes, women, farmers and widows. Jyotiba Phule (1827–90) dawned as the saviour of the weaker sections. Defying diktats and intimidations, he got himself and his wife educated. This paved the way for the Phule couples to start and successfully run few schools for the children of ... View more info
