Overview for Political Order: The Vedic Perspective
This book is an attempt to initiate the process of probing deeply into the complex structure of the Vedic ideas with a view to presenting a correct perspective on political order from the Vedic point of view.India with a very ancient background of Vedic as well as non-Vedic traditions has pleaded for a political order whose central sustaining idea has been the concept of dharma in its ultimate all-engrossing metaphor of integration. The Vedic concept of man, society and nature as divine has been responsible for the development of the idea of social order subsuming the political order as the central integrating force for unity, stability and development in an integrated manner.How far this ancient ideology would be applicable to modern system of political order is a matter of research.
