HINDU PHILOSOPHY AND RELIGION


The main reason for the publication of this part of the website, is to make you (the reader) aware of the Hindu philosophy and religion and its various systems.

The sacred books of the Hindus present a number of problems which have yet to be solved. They have been tackled by various scholars from time to time, but their essential enigma remains. The nineteenth century, and more specially its latter half, witnessed a great awakening of interest in Sanskrt among European scholars, and it has spread to America in more recent years. But the result has fallen short of expectation; and philosophy and religion have, for the most part, given place to history, philology, anthropology, archaeology and antiquarian research.

The modern scholar would not indeed deny the moral and spiritual significance of the sacred books; but they are for him but relics of a bygone age, with values and problems entirely different from his own.

It is important to refer to the teachings of our ancestors, however when it comes to our real life and its experiences the visitor would be well advised to introspect and gain new insights from the world to make realistic decisions for the betterment of his or her own life. The visitor would realize that all this knowledge and information and more is available in the environment. He or she is required only to find it before making his or her decisions with respect to improving present life circumstances. We would like to bring to your attention that, we have segregated the content to our website into their relevant and various parts and can be access at Mimansa: The secret of the Sacred Books; The Bhagavad Gita; The Mystery of the Mahabharata; The Mystery of the Mahabharata: Towards a better understanding; and The Mystery of the Mahabharata: The story and essence of the Epic. This endeavor of adding new and relevant to the context content would continue in the future.
