    One thought on “A Source Book in Indian Philosophy”

    1. A gem of Indian Philosophy.My favorite was the Epic Period Really well written and well commented I think Radhakrishnan was once the President of India Almost unbelievable that a politician can have such philosophical depth Shows how much India values wisdom of a man.

    2. Some of the translations are a little archaic but as a collection it is about as complete as you ll find It s also a good source for infrequently referenced but important schools of thought try finding Carvaka or Vaisheshika at Barnes and Noble A solid collection, but you ll want to find contemporary translations with notes on the Sanskrit for major works like the Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads.

    3. First read this book for a university class 30 years ago and hung in to it all these years Dug it out recently and took it along on a trip to India, re reading it as we toured Hindu temples in Tamil Nadu, Varanasi, and a Buddhist site in Sarnath A solid introduction to basic eastern theology, breadth rather than depth While a couple of texts are presented completely Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali s Yoga Sutras most of the book are excerpts from major texts.

    4. Acclaimed translations of many essential texts including the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanisads along with commentary and historical context Excellent.

    5. A comprehensive textbook on Indian Philosophy by the man whose Birthday is celebrated as Teacher s Day in India

    6. A very useful resource if you are beginning to study classical Indian philosophy It covers most of the main schools and for each section there is a concise, but useful introduction to the source material and the main themes these explore.Deeper study probably requires extensive examination of whole primary texts, but this offers the student a good starting point.

    7. An amazing book must for those who are interested in knowing Indian things since the books contains than philosophy.
