Radhakrishnan · Indian Post Stamp Articles about Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Ċ, Read Indian Philosophy Volume 1 Second Edition: With an Introduction By S. Radhakrishnan was the second President of India, a position that he held from.

Radhakrishnan, the second president of India, beautifully depicts the transition of Indian Thought from Rig Veda to Ramanuja. The reason why Indian Philosophy is regarded as one of the best around the world is due to its progressive nature of transforming itself according to the needs of the present time.

Also, it is one of the few philosophies, which recognize the three states of human: Indian Philosophy can be broadly divided i "Indian Philosophy" by S. Indian Philosophy can be broadly divided into the following periods: They consist of hymns to be sung at sacrifices. There are four vedas, namely, Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva. Each Veda is divided into three parts: Mantras, Brahmanas and Upanisads.

See a Problem?

Mantras are the hymns to be recited. There collection is known as "Samhita". Brahmanas are the precepts and religious duties while Upanisads and the Aranyakas are the concluding portions of Brahamanas which discuss the philosophical problems. While the Brahmanas provide the religious duties of a householder, the Aranyakas serve as objects of meditation for those who resort to forests in their old age. The Upanisads focus on ideals like Karma. The Law of Karma is the law of the conservation of moral energy.

In simple words.

Materialist are those people who believe in the non-existence of soul and after life. They believe that, "Its an error of Judgement that leads to the assumption of another world. There is no world other than this, neither heaven or hell. Religion is a foolish aberration, a mental disease. A god is not necessary to account for the world" The materialists donot believe in the philosophy of Karma.

This philosophy was laid down by "Caravaka" Jainism is another philosophy which is long existent in Indian Society. Jainas are the followers of Jina, the victor, a title applied to Vardhamana, the last prophet of the Jainas.

Vardhamana is also known as Mahavira. The philosophy however was founded by Risaba. The prophets in Jainism are known as Tirthankaras. The Jainas divide the knowledge into five kinds: Jainas donot believe in the existence of a Supreme Being but only in the cleanliness of soul.

The main aim of Jainism is the liberation of Soul. The book then also discusses about the establishment of Buddhism, its teachings and how and why it has become successful in the modern day.

The book also discusses about the various deities of the Vedic and Epic Period and how cults like Vaisnavism and Shaivism started. During the Vedic Period, Hiranyagarbha and Prajapati were regarded as the creator of the world. Indira, the lord of sky, rain and thunder was regarded as the king of gods and the father of the whole world. He was compared to Zeus. Krisna and his life has been discussed elaborately in the book.

The Indian Philosophy has always been related to science. Where Aryans not only developed a sun god for the day but also an invisible sun god of the night, Savitr. This proves the fact that Aryans believed that sun didn't disappear during the night.

The ten avatars or incarnations of Vishnu have also been in order where first comes the fish, "Matsya" just like aquatic animals came first. Then, a man like that of Prehistoric times with an ax Parsuram , then a settled warrior and herdsman Krishna.

Later came Buddha, a preacher of Peace. At the end, we will have Kalki, who will work on destroying the evil when it will be out of control and reconstruct an era of peace. All the activity that happens in our world is due to two forces, Purusa man or Prakriti Nature. Purusa has acquired intelligence, while Prakriti has acquired matter. It was indeed an educating book with a lot of insight on Indian Philosophy.

Volume 1 of Indian Philosophy by Radhakrishnan, an Advaita himself, mostly deals with the early philosophical texts that originated here. A very interesting read with all the necessary references and sources. Radhakrishnan was a grand master in philosophy and he did a huge cont This is a standard version of Indian Philosophical thoughts that I'd safely recommend for all students of philosophy.

Radhakrishnan was a grand master in philosophy and he did a huge contribution to the Indian School of thought vis-a-vis the Western 'organized' schools.

This is also a must read for all students of comparative religions. I am on my religious voyage currently and this book made me sail through early Indian texts seamlessly. Although it goes without saying, it has explanations which does not mean you do not read the original texts or their simpler translations May 23, R rated it it was amazing. I bought this book to validate one of my friend's claim who during our discussions mentioned that Hinduism as a religion has been strongly influenced by Greek religion and cited it as the reason for similar God's in both histories.

I found a reasonable explanation in this book as to why this claim is made and why is it likely not true - so the book served its purpose. It's a great book to learn about the spiritual development in India. The author discusses the key teachings of Vedas, Upanishads, I bought this book to validate one of my friend's claim who during our discussions mentioned that Hinduism as a religion has been strongly influenced by Greek religion and cited it as the reason for similar God's in both histories.

My great surprise, however, was that my distinguished teacher, Professor A.

Hogg, the present Principal of the Madras Christian College, a thinker of great penetration in theological matters, awarded me a testimonial, which I still treasure, in which he expressed himself thus: "The thesis which he prepared in the second year of his study for this degree shows a remarkable understanding of the main aspects of the philosophical problem, a capacity for handling easily a complex argument besides more than the average mastery of good English.

An interesting point highlighted by Radhakrishnan is that Gods in India are closer to the devotee - they are friends, they are lovers, they are the near and dear. In contrast, in the judeo-christian gods seem to be distant and vengeful. Keith, Indian Logic, p. Contents preface to second edition 5 preface 7 chap.
