 Hindu View of Judaism  Ananda Hindu View of Judaism     
Temporarily Out of Stock
First and foremost of all, it is a fact that there was a great dearth for books of this type. As such this publication tries to fill up the long felt want specially, from the Indian point of view. It is a good addition also to the religious series of the Ramakrishna Mission publications (which incidently includes books on Buddha and Buddhism, Christ and Christianity, even Mohammed and Islam) but uptil now not a single writing on Judaism. This publication no doubt nicely harmonises with the...

 Prolegomena to a History of Buddhist Philosophy  Benimadhab Barua Prolegomena to a History of Buddhist Philosophy   $5.49  $4.12  Buy Now 
This study canvasses the idea of writing a general history of Buddhist philosophy. The Buddha was not only the founder of a great world religion but was a gifted critical and speculative philosopher. The value of Buddhism as a religion and the historical development of Buddhism as a popular religion should not preclude the serious study of Buddhism as philosophy and Buddhism's unique approach to metaphysics, logic, causality and the classic philosophical problems. 
 The Virgin Birth and the Earliest Christian Tradition  K. D. Sethna The Virgin Birth and the Earliest Christian Tradition   $5.49  $4.12  Buy Now 
In this study on the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, the author stresses that the focus must be not on the "manner in which orthodox Christians understand Mary's child to have emerged from her womb" but on "the nature of the conception by which that child is said to have been born virginally". He states, "the more correct term, therefore, would be the Virginal Conception of Jesus." The study is not from a rationalist angle but "to find if the basic Christian tradition itself affords ground for...

The first part of this book takes a refreshing new look at various issues surrounding the origins of Christianity, ranging from the historicity of Christ and events in his life to the Turin Shroud.

 Amartya Sen's Hindu Bash  V.S. Sardesai Amartya Sen's Hindu Bash   $10.99  $8.24  Buy Now 
The volume is an erudite work on Nobel Laureate Prof. Amartya Sen's perception of Hinduism and the Hindus as evident in his books The Argumentative Indian and Identity and Violence. It examines Sen's stinging views on Hindutva and Hindu culture. The author argues that the works engage in Hindu-baiting and scrutinizes certain discrepancies that have crept in as a result of accepting theories, such as Sri Rama was a myth and Ramayana is a parable, uncritically. The book also comments on Prof.... 
 Rasa: Performing the Divine in India  Susan L. Schwartz Rasa: Performing the Divine in India   $12.49  $9.37  Buy Now

 Hindu Mysticism  S.N. Dasgupta Hindu Mysticism   $12.99  $9.74   
Temporarily Out of Stock
This book is a systematic introduction to Hindu mysticism as it evolved in India through the ages.

 A New Approach to the Vedas  Ananda K. Coomaraswamy A New Approach to the Vedas   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
From the pen of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy this small but wonderful volume is an essay in translation and exegesis in relation to the Vedas in which passages from the Rgveda and the Brhadaranyaka and Maitri Upanishads, dealing with cosmogony, ontology and teleology, have been interpreted in a new perception of the quite extraordinary depth of those ideas and their amazing psychological accuracy.

This book is primarily meant for the use of Honours and Post – graduate students of Philosophy and Religion of the Indian Universities.
