Rooted In The Vedic Heritage, The Systems Of Vedanta Emphasize The Importance Of, And The Way To, Spiritual Transcendence. They Are Divided Into Two Groups On The Basis Of Certain Metaphysical, Epistemological, And Soteriological Issues. While Advaita Vedanta Which Is Monistic In The Strict Sense Of The Term Is On One Side, Other Systems Of Vedanta, Which Are Pluralistic, Are On The Other Side. The Present Volume Which Deals With Advaita Vedanta Consists Of Three Sections: The First One Covers Classical Advaita; The Second One Examines The Impact Of Advaita On Contemporary Indian Philosophy; And The Third One Gives An Account Of Advaita In Vernaculars. There Are Two Dimensions In Advaita. While The Empirical Dimension Known As The Vyavaharika Shows Advaita Is A Rigorous, Systematic Philosophy, The Trans-Empirical Aspect Known As The Paramarthika Brings Out Its Mystical Outlook. Advaita Holds That There Is No Incompatibility Between The Empirical And The Trans-Empirical; Because Brahman Which Is Transempirical Is The Fround Of The Empirical; And There Cannot Be Any Contradiction Or Incompatibility Between The Ground And The Grounded. The Book Will Be Of Interest To Scholars Of Advaita Philosophy And General Readers Alike.
