Advaita Vedanta Re-Explored Towards Ecological and Dalit Theology

 
John V. Mathew (Author) Interfaith Treasures Uncovered
Synopsis

The book attempts to develop Indian Christian Liberation theologies, i.e., Eco-theology and Dalit theology, based on the insights gained from the study of Relation in Sankara's Advaita Vedanta and carries forward the work done by K. P. Aleaz and Richard De Smet. Sankara through his integral God-World/Human relation provides an epistemological as well as a theological basis for Eco-theology and Dalit theology in the context of ecological liberation and the ongoing struggles of Dalit Identity and liberation. The sanctity of Earth as well as the equality of humankind is presented in this book through Sakara's thoughts. The God-World relation insights in Sankara's thought backs Eco-theology and provides the wider green movements with a comprehensive vision. It also enable us to remove all hierarchy in the social order and antagonism based on caste, culture and religion.

The book affirms that a dialogical relationship and a relational convergence between `Vedantic' theology and Indian Christian theology is made possible in terms of developing Indian Christian Liberation theologies through Sankara's integral God-World/Human relation. This book is a must read for students of Indian philosophy, Christian liberation theology, and for those who are involved in building a Society that will contribute towards removing the antagonistic social order.
