About the Book

This book is an attempt to outline the essence of the six classic systems of Hindu Philosophy, namely; Nyaya, Vai¼eÏika, SÊmkhya, Yoga, MÌmʱsÊ, and VedÊnta. Other schools of Hindu thought are variations of these six except the school of KʼmÌr #aivism which gives the most detailed analysis of the Ultimate Principle. Each schools based on the same metaphysical doctrine, while discussing some particular aspect of the whole. For example: Nyaya discusses the means by which knowledge may be had of the Ultimate Reality; Vai¼eÏika, the things to be known about that Ultimate Reality; SÊmkhya, the evolution of metaphysical doctrine; Yoga, the metaphysical doctrine in relation to the individual; MÌmʱsÊ, the rules and method of interpreting the doctrine; VedÊnta, the relationship between God, Matter, and the World; and KʼmÌr #aivism, the nature of the Ultimate Spirit and the Cause of the Initial Impulse. These philosophy is intended merely to show the interrelationship of these schools and how each assumes the doctrines of the other while it solves its special problem. This book is a synthesis rather than an original contribution. In its preparation, author has relied extensively upon the writings of recognized authorities on Hindu Philosophy.
