Indian Wisdom or Examples of the Religious, Philosophical and Ethical Doctrines of the Hindus

Monier Williams (Author)
Synopsis When the Britishers came to India, apart from economic and administrative interests, there was felt an increasing interest in Indian culture and literature which led to a demand for such a work as is presented here, Indian Wisdom. It is possible to obtain from any one book a good general idea of the character and contents of Sanskrit literature and philosophy? It is to address this need that Monier Williams undertook the daunting task of collecting, in one volume, the essentials of Indian philosophy. Indianj Wisdom covers extensive ground from expositions on the Vedas, the Upanishads, Buddhism and Jainism to the other major systems of Indian philosophy: The Nyaya, Sankhya and the Mimamsa systems. The Smriti and Shruti sutras, the Law book of Manu, the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata, with a special focus on the Gita, the Puranas, Tantras, Niti Shastras, fables of the Panchatantra and the Hitopdesha are all covered extensively and intensively. The grand sweep of the book therefore makes it possible for any student, lay or serious, of Indian philosophy and religion, to find almost its entire range in this one volume.
