Preface

The present work is a collection of a few papers some of which have already been published in some journals. The majority of the papers entered into this work are concerned with tantra and Sri Caitanya’s Vaisnavism. A few papers on the philosophies of Badarayana’s, Samkhya-Yoga and Vijnanavada have also been incorporated into ] ]” body of the work. The aim of all these papers is to wipe out some misconceptions about the Tantric practiced and also about some aspects of the philosophies of Sri Caitanya’s Vaisnavism, Badarayana’s Brahma-sutra, Samkhya-yoga and vijnanavada. Popularly, most of the Tantric practices are thoughts to be nasty and horrific ; we have endeavored to show that these are actually not so, rather they are all divine. Sri Caitanya’s philosophy is looked upon as quite contradictory to that of Sankara; we have to tried to establish that it is not so, the difference between these two systems lying only in the fact that Sankara puts emphasis on some aspect of the Absolute and Sri Caitanya on another, likewise we have made an attempt to demonstrate that Badarayana’s philosophy, which has been interpreted by so many commentators in so many ways, is one of bhedabheda or difference-cum-non-difference and that the philosophy of Patanjala-Yoga is quite in harmony with the other Yoga-treatises and also with the Upanisads. We hope that our thoughts contained in these papers will give a new dimension to the interpretations of the philosophical concepts concerned.

I am very much thankful to Sri S.K Bhattacharya of Punthi-Pustak who has taken a keen interest in this work and published it within a short span of time.

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
