Philosophical Contributions of Bhaktas and Gurus to Indian Culture

Nirbhai Singh (Author)
Synopsis Philosophical contributions of Bhaktas and Gurus to Indian culture, is the first philosophical interpretation of the medieval religious celebrities from sixth to first decade of 18 century. They revived Indian culture that was almost defeated by the Muslim invaders. Many works on medieval devotional literature are available, but none has given in-depth philosophical analysis of the undercurrent philosophical concepts, which are ensconced in religious language. Their interpretations are explanatory and literary that don't mirror the hidden meanings (ciphers) of the realized selves who expressed their illuminations either orally or in written forms. The author with his maturity of philosophical understanding successfully cleansed the shoddy concepts in modern philosophical idioms with clarity of expression. The work in hand is the fruit of the author's creative and original reflections. He dives deep into original sources of the scriptures and brings up pristine meanings prevalent in those days. Nonetheless, the author carried forward the pristine meanings and wraps them in modern philosophical terminology. This is the merit of the book, which will arrest attention of the readers who are interested in understanding Indian culture in clear philosophical terms. The book will cleanse dross of misunderstandings of the Indian culture, which has been distorted by the alien scholars and the exegetes. This is a philosophical attempt that churns out the religious concepts, which are locked up in sacred scriptures.

It resuscitates the illuminations of the Bhaktas and the Gurus. The ecstasies of the contributors are reinterpreted within the contemporary context. The paradigm of the interpretations is fashioned in the Indian cultural paradigm. It reconciles eternity and temporality, and restores historicity of human action and societal realities, which were lost in the medieval ages.
