The Nature of Living Tradition

 
Baidyanath Saraswati (Editor)
Synopsis Indian Parampara is a response to secular Western thought on tradition and modernity. Presented here are contributions from a distinguished group of Indian scholars representing a wide spectrum of disciplines. It raises many question: What is the source of parampara? How is it transmitted? Does it hold in potential the characteristics of all orders of Knowledge? Who was the parent of its primal seed? How does the individual sustain the flow of parampara or tradition? Is the individual artist capable of sustaining creativity and initiating change? Does he have to take the path of confrontation with parampara? How does the person transcend the small ‘I’ to enlarge himself into the ‘We’? What is that experience of the ‘Self’ where duality between the subject and the object is lost? To answer such central questions the authors of this volume reflect on anthropological, philosophical, spiritual, musical, poetical, and experiential dimensions. This book is an important contribution to traditional thought and culture.

About the author

Baidyanath Saraswati

Baidyanath Saraswati, Unesco Professor, Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, New Delhi, was associated with the Anthropological Survey of India, Culcutta, for a decade, and another decade with the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla. During this period he did extensive fieldwork in rural India and conducted a detailed study of the sacred city of Varanasi. As a Professor of Visva-Bharati University, Ranchi University and North-Eastern Hill University, he taught anthropology in a highly unconventional style. For the last twelve years, he is drawing out relevant themes from traditional thoughts and modern sciences to build up an indigenous anthropology from within. His research opens up new possibilities for non-Western anthropologists to imagine a future for themselves. He has authored The Sacred Science of Man, The Sacred Science of Nature, as well as other books and articles.
