About the Book: 

The essays in this book treat the Mahabharata from an unusual angle, fastening on the moral dilemmas it presents. How universal are the dilemmas faced by the characters in the story, and are the dilemmas in fact resolved? In dealing with these questions, the discussions range over the meaning of the purusarthas, the institutions of marriage and the family, the concept of action in the Gita and the special predicaments faced by Draupadi, Arjuna and others. These studies invite the scholar to reflect afresh on the text and encourage the general reader to find in epic literature much that is relevant to life today.    

About the author :  

Bimal Krishna Matilal was an Indian philosopher whose influential writings present the Indian Philosophical tradition as being concerned with the same issues as have been the theme in Western philosophy. From 1977 to 1991 he was the Spalding Professor of Eastern Religion and Ethics at Oxford University. In the works, he presented the Indian systems of logic, particularly Nyay-Vaisesika, Mimamasa and Buddhist Philosophy, as being relevant in modern philosophical discourse.

TESTIMONIALS

Yes, I did receive the book just yesterday, finally. I was so pleased to finally receive it. I've already begun reading it! I thank you one last time for your incredible service with this issue, which was begun when I gave you the wrong address. Thus I realize my responsibility for the mess, and am very grateful to you for helping me to make everything right. I will certainly order from Vedic Books in the future, should I be looking for another book that you carry. Happy Holiday season to you, and all the best to you...
