The aim of this dissertation is to present a systematic exposition of

renunciation (Samnyasa) as a philosophico-religious category within Indian

tradition with special reference to Advaita Vedanta of Samkaracarya. The

author tried to justify this category as a spiritual technique

systematically worked out and developed by Advaitins particularly Samkara

with a view to classifying and systematizing values in terms of the

different forms which renunciation and its object may be found to assume.

This dissertation also highlights principles of human behaviour in the

Indian tradition implicitly clarifying thereby such concepts as dharma

(socio-religious duties), the good life, obligation and responsibility etc.
