Materialism in Indian Thought
Materialism in Indian Thought
Description
About the Book

This is a unique research work of distinctive quality based on original Sanskrit, Pali and Prakrit sources. The book not only highlights the neglected features of India thought of the early pre-systematic period but also presents a careful, critical and concepts and doctrines of the full-fledged Indian philosophy. The book also exposes some of the established misconceptions about Indian philosophy that, "It is essentially spiritualistic" and the like, made current by some 'great' orientalists with ulterior motives and accepted uncritically by the historians of Indian philosophy. Thus, the book maintains, that like life and culture, the Indian thought is equally rich and variegated decrying the tendency to consider all other schools of thought as so many steps towards Vedanta. The book upholds that even for Materialism we need not seek inspiration elsewhere, as we not only have a system of materialism of our own in the Carvaka (Lokayata) system but it also plays a role of considerable important in the other thought-system.

Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
