The Doctrine of Maya in Advaita Vedanta

R Satapathy (Author)

The book is my Ph.D. dissertation written under the supervision and guidance of Dr. P. B.Vidyarthi, Prof. of Philosophy, Ranchi University. I too, had worked my D. Lit. with him on the topic concept of person! It is always a joy to be with him and understand philosophy. It is a rare chance for a scholar. Both the works are Vedanta. As everybody knows no philosophy of the world has opened such wide vista to a philosophic seeker as Vedanta. With regard to important questions like ‘world’ and man’s ultimate destiny Shankara’s analysis, in particular, has brought revolution. My aim is to understand Shankara in the bosom of modern thought to see what clue Vedanta Philosophy of India can provide to explain and understand the riddle of life and existence. Advaitic conclusion of the world as Maya and reality as Brahman are a few positive approaches to the question. I dedicate the work to my parents; my father, a voracious reader, always a book in hand, who is no more and my mother, a brave woman. I remember too, at this occasion my teachers, especially my beacon guide into the philosophic arena Prof. Shyama Kumar Chattopadhyay P.R.S., Prof. of Philosophy, Ravenshaw College, Cuttack. May I not speak about my wife who sacrificed all her comforts that I move freely in the philosophy wonder land. The path of God is strewn with Truth (Mundak. Up.)
