An Integrated Science of the Absolute (In 2 Volumes)

 
Nataraja Guru (Author)
Synopsis It is not just the magnum opus, but a truly monumental effort of a scientist-philosopher who has spent a whole lifetime to formulate a unitive science, wherein all disciplines of human questing could find a common ground – a science where modern science and ancient spiritual wisdom could meet and merge like two opposite poles of a magnet. As a direct disciple of one of the great rsis of the modern age, Nataraja Guru discovers this common ground in Brahma-vidya, which he calls the “Integrated Science of the Absolute”, and which has, at its base, his guru’s Darsana Mala. A string of hundred Sanskrit verses, composed by the mystic-poet, Narayana Guru (1854-1928), the Darsana Mala is the very “epitome of all visions of truth” – inspired by his remarkable acquisitions of Upanisadic thought and, yet far more, by his own tapas (mystical discipline). Reproducing these highly significative verses in Roman script, along with English translations, word meanings, and extensive commentaries, Nataraja Guru not only spells out his mentor’s “Visions of the Absolute” in contemporary idiom, but also shows how these “visions” are fully validated by modern science. Eclectic synthesis of varied scientific disciplines into a systematic whole is not all that Nataraja Guru accomplishes here. Rather his book (now in second edition) is an attempt to re-introduce Brahma-vidya as the one Master Science that embraces every branch of science, every human interest.

About the author

Nataraja Guru

Nataraja Guru was born in Bangalore in 1895. After graduation from the University of Madras he became a close disciple of the Guru Narayana (1854-1928). As the disciple-successor of Narayana Guru he is a representative of the same pure, direct vertical line of succession of philosophical revaluators extending back through time to the most ancient phase of the history of human thought. Nataraja Guru studied under Henri Bergson at the Sorbonne at Paris, where he took his Doctorate in Educational Psychology. In 1923 he founded the Narayana Gurukula Foundations, a Guru-disciple foundation for the preservation of the type of life and global attitude suggested in this book, and in line with the Advaita Vedanta Ashramas of India. In 1951, Nataraja Guru was himself publilcly acknowledged as a Guru uniquely qualified to present the teaching and attitude expressed by his Master. He has translated into English and commented on all the major works of Narayana Guru, and has written on a wide variety of subjects, employing throughout a protolinguistic or structural approach which could be said to be his unique contribution to the perennial wisdom-heritage of mankind.
