Book Description


Our country is well-known for its spiritual persuits. Our ancestors did extra ordinary work in understanding the ultimate reality as well as finding the true meaning of life. The term 'Vedanta' represents number of scriptures. Many 'Rishis' and 'Munis' have enlightened us on the important aspects of the universe and our position as a human being. Our beliefs in the life cycle through 84 lakh 'Yonis', theory of rebirth, the impact of karma and significance of the truth are based on our scriptures. This rich body of knowledge is like ocean. We are therefore not able to grasp the entire wisdom of 'Vedanta' quickly. It calls for patience & preserveance.

We have a tradition of studying various subjects & offer our interpretation of spiritual concepts. Our system does not press for rigidity or uniformity. We believe that there can be many truths as perceived by different people.. 'Anekantvad' is not exclusive to Jainism but it is a part of our unendina search for the truth. "Vedanta' contains the most valuable contribution from hundreds of wise people. It is a matter of pride for us that even in the present time, many scholars continue to explain to us the concepts of "Vedanta' in their unique style. Each such commentary enriches 'Vedanta' literature. As long as the mankind has curiosity to understand 'Param Tatva' the Ultimate Reality, 'Vedanta' would be relevant and useful.

Dr. Shuchita Divatia-Mehta's book on "Exploring Vedantic Wisdom" is a welcome addition to the body of knowledge on our scriptures. Dr. Shuchita is an academic with an impressive record of teaching Sanskrit in a prestigious college like St. Xavier's college Ahmedabad. Her long experience & indepth study is quite visible in this book. She has carefully selected specific topics; The world as we perceive it, the meaning of death, 'Aneka Eka Jivavada', concept of 'Amita', Mind and coincidences where cause & effect is accidental. From the vast coverage of many issues by 'Vedanta' literature, Dr. Shuchita has selected about a dozen of topics which are relevant to contemporary times.

Her presentation is analytical. She explains the details in simple way so that a layman can also grasp the essence of the concept. She relates the examination of the concept with the work of earlier thinkers. This gives us a comprehensive view and make it easy for us to appreciate the nuances of the spiritual issues. The topics in 'Vedanta' are generally abstract, and hence many find it difficult to comprehend the full connotation of a proposition. Dr. Shuchita therefore, explains the details to make it possible for the readers to understand the concept logically.

The author at the end of each chapter gives the refences of the original works. This provides an useful bibliography for all those who want to persue their Studies of 'Vedanta' further.
