Back of the Book

The proper mode of life, according to the Indian culture, lies in practicing the chaturvidha purushartha. The four purusharthas are Dharma, Artha, Kama and moksha. Moksha or self-realisation has been considered the highest achievement in this life. But the practice of the three purusharthas in the proper periods of life is supposed to lead to satisfaction of life and mental peace, leading ultimately to atmalabha.

The great Indian social philosophers made an exhaustive and scientific study of different aspects of human life and propounded treatises, which left an indelible mark on Indian thought and culture. In fact, they are among the greatest legal and social philosophies of the world.

This volume covers five of these personalities, namely Manu, Yajnavalkya, Kautilya, Vatsyayana and doyen of Tamil literary figures, Tiruvalluvar.
