Preface

The project on Bharatiya-Samskriti-Sarvasva-Kosha is continuing with several precious publications on different subjects of lasting value concerning Indian culture. The Academy is proud that it is serving the cause of promoting Indological awareness. The rich cultural heritage of the country is being authentically articulated by steady flow of publications over the years.

The Academy is grateful to Vidyalankara Sastra-Chudamani, Sangita Kalaratna Prof. S.K Ramachandra Rao for his most valuable contributions in our publication venture.

The Academy is greatly indebted to His Holiness Paramapujya Sri Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Maha Swamiji, the Jagadguru of Shri Sringeri Sharada Peetham, and the chief patron of the Academy, for showering his munificent blessings on the Academy. The Administrator of the Shri Sringeri Sharada Peetham, Shri V R Gowrishankar who is also the chairman of the Academy evinces continuous interest in the Academy’s activities and the Academy is grateful to him.

We also thank the Authorities of the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Govt. of India, New Delhi and the Authorities of Ministry of Education, Govt. of Karnataka; and also we thank the printers M/s. Omkar Offset Printers for printing this volume neatly and expeditiously.

Introduction

This is the second part of the volume on the Development of Rigvedic thought. It is a traditional conviction as also a historical truth that Vedic thought and Vedantic thought are not only a continuum but represent one thought-system. Indologists and scholars in Indian lore have often committed the mistake of looking upon the Vedantic thought as different from the Vedic thought, as an independent growth. They tend to view the Upanishads as not strictly belonging to the Vedic corpus. It is to correct this error that the present volume in two parts has been compiled. All systems of thought in India have grown out of the Upanishads, and the Upanishads represent the conclusions of the Vedic corpus. The Rigvedic ideology finds its fulfilment in Vedanta.

I am grateful to Daivajna Shri K.N. Somayaji, for giving me this opportunity of documenting the results of my research and communicating my own considered views. I am indebted to Shri Shri Bharati Thirtha Swamiji, the Pontiff of Sri Sharada Peetham, and the chief patron of Kalpatharu Research Academy, and to Shri V.R. Gowrishankar the chairman of the Academy and the administrator of the Sharada Peetham for their interest in my work.

I thank Shri Venkatesh Babu and Shri Nagendra of the Omkar Offset Printers for their courtesy and co-operation.
