Indian Theories of Creation: A Synthesis
Indian Theories of Creation: A Synthesis
Description
From the Jacket:

In the work Indian Theories of Creation, the author has tried to present an account of all the theories of creation found in the different systems of Indian philosophy. Further, he has endeavored to show that behind all these theories there is a synthetic theory of creation. All the theories of creation prevalent in India are based on this synthetic theory, the difference among them lying only in the omission or inclusion of some or the other stage or stages thereof.

Dr. Sinha is a devoted researcher in different fields of Indian philosophy. Besides, he is the first exponent of Bishnupriya Manipuri linguistics.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
