The aim of Hindu Philosophy is the exinction of sorrow and suffering by the

method of knowledge that alone can free man from the bondage of ignorance.

It points to a clear way of thinking which enables one to understand

Reality by direct experience. In this perspective, Hindu Philosophy is an

art of life and not a theory.

In this book the author presents a precise and illuminating study of six

systems of Indian Philosophy classified into three divisions (1)

Nyaya-Vaisesika, (2) Samkhya-Yoga, (3) Mimamsa-Vedanta. The first division

lays down the methodology of science and elaborates the concepts of Physics

and Chemistry to show how manifestations of phenomena come into being. The

second division sets forth and account of cosmic evolution on purely

logical principles. The third division critically analyses the basic

principles, developing them in greater detail and furnishing arguments to

substantiate, as well as making incidental contribution on points of

special interest.

Beside presenting an account of philosophical systems of India, the author

adds a study of Kashmir Saivism--a system of Ideal Monism founded by

Vasugupta and based on Siva Sutras. In this context the author throws

sufficient light on the traditional Tantric literature that has sufered

wide criticism both from Western and Eastern scholars.

The book is documented with Preface, Introduction and Glossarial Index.
