Indian Parampara is a response to secular Western thought on tradition and modernity. The contributions of this volume represent a wide spectrum of disciplines. It raises many questions: What is the source of parampara? How is it transmitted? How does the individual sustain the flow of the parampara or tradition? etc. To answer such central questions the authors of this volume reflect on anthropological, philosophical, spiritual, musical, poetical, and experiential dimensions. This book is an important contribution to traditional thought and culture.
