5 Subodh Kapoor (Ed.)
Encyclopaedia of Upanishads and Its Philosophy, 4 Vols
Chaukhambha Publications; New Delhi, India; 2002; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the long History of man's endeavor to grasp the fundamental truths of being, the Metaphysical treatises known as the Upanisads hold an honoured place. They represent the earnest efforts of the profound thinkers of early India to solve the problems of the origin, the nature, and the destiny of man and of the universe, or-more technically-the meaning and value of 'knowing' and 'being'. They are replete with sublime conceptions and with intuitions of universal truth. Here are found intimations of the inadequacy of mere nature-worship and of the falsity of ritualistic ceremonialism. Here are expressed the momentous discoveries that the various gods of polytheistic belief are but numerous special manifestations of the One Power of the universe, and that the supreme object of worship is this variously revealed, partially elusive, all-comprehending Reality. Here in the Upanisads are set forth, in concrete example as well as in dogmatic instruction.In the long history of man's endeavor to grasp the fundamental truths of being, the metaphysical treatises known as the Upanisads hold an honoured place.

Here are expressed the momentous discoveries that the various gods of polytheistic belief are but numerous special manifestations of the One Power of the universe, and that the supreme object of worship is this variously revealed, partially elusive, all-comprehending Reality. Here in the Upanisads are set forth, in concrete example as well as in dogmatic instruction, two opposing theories of life: an ignorant, narrow, selfish way of life which seeks temporary, unsatisfying, unreal ends; and a way of life which seeks to relate itself to the Supreme Reality of the universe, so as to escape from the needless misery of ordinary existence into undying bliss. The Upanisads attract as many devoted readers as they have for the past twenty-five centuries. The Upanisads appeal to the student of the history of philosophy who desires to know some of the earliest answers reached in India for the ever insistent problems of man and the universe and for the ideals of the higher existence; the special student of India who strives to understand the essence as well as the externals of its culture and traditions; the religious teacher and worker in East and West who seeks to apprehend the aspirations and spiritual ideals of The Hindu soul; the educated Hindu who feels a special affection for, and interest in, the sacred writings of his land; and the deep thinker who searches in arcane texts for clues to the solution of life's mysteries-all of these students will turn constantly to the Upanisads as an authoritative compendium of Indian meta-physical teachings. This pioneering reference work wishes to present a rendering of the fundamental philosophy and truths the Upanisads talk of. With contributions from some of the foremost scholars in the field of Indology and philosophical contemplation, the set should be a welcome addition to any collection on Indian studies.Printed Pages: 1600. 100647

6 Subodh Kapoor (Ed.)
Encyclopaedia of Vedic Philosophy: The Age, Religion, Pantheon, Philosophy, Traditions and Teachers of the Vedas, 9 Vols
Chaukhambha Publications; New Delhi, India; 2002; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The orthodox Hindu regards the Vedas as his highest written authority. Any subsequent scripture, if he is to regard it as valid, must be in agreement with them, it may expand them, it may develop them, and still be recognized, but it must not contradict them. They are to him, as nearly as any human document can be, the expression of divine truth. At the same time it would be a mistake to suppose that his allegiance to their authority is, in the final analysis, blind and automatic. If he considers them the word of God, it is because he believes their truth to be verifiable, immediately, at any moment, in his own personal experience. If he found, on due examination, that it was not so definable, he would reject it. If he found that any part of it was not so definable, he would reject that. In short, he conceives that his faith in the Vedas is as well founded, and on grounds exactly as critical as is the natural scientist’s belief in any physical law. In other words, the study of the Vedas, is first-hand experience of God. The Vedas teach the knowledge of God, and lay down work as a means to that knowledge---the word work here signifying both sacrificial rites and unselfish performance of secular duty. When through work our hearts are purified, we are ripe for divine knowledge. Work and knowledge these two are the subjects of the Vedas, and name the parts into which Rg, Sāma, Yajur and Atharva are each divided. Against the background of these conceptions the orthodox view of the origin of the Vedas may be quickly sketched. At the very beginning of each cycle, holy seers are born into the world, men who in previous universes have ascended far towards the supreme goal and are therefore especially capable of perceiving divine truth. These blessed saints---ûŸis, the Hindus call them---meditate on God, and while so meditating discern the everlasting laws of the spirit, and it is the concrete record of these laws, so discerned, that constitutes, in each cycle, the most authoritative or sacred writings. The record of the meditations of the ûŸis born at the beginning of our own cycle is, then, what we know as the Vedas. This Encyclopaedia of Vedic Philosophy fulfills the need for a vast introductory work of reference to this diverse philosophical subject. The nine-volume set, with contributions from some of the foremost Indological scholars from around the world, incorporates the finest writings on the Vedas and the philosophy they propound. This work is perhaps the largest comprehensive reference source on the subject.Printed Pages: 3150. 100648

7 Subodh Kapoor (Ed.)
Philosophy of Saivism: History, Philosophy and Literature of Saivism
Chaukhambha Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Saivism, may be defined as the setting aside of the triune equality of Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva, and the merging of the former two Gods in the God -- Siva. But it is also more than this. It is supreme being, infinite, eternal, an exempt from subjection to the law of ultimate absorption into the universal spirit. Rudra appears quite early in the Veda with a well-recognized and well-marked personality of his own. He is an important deity, whose anger is to be dreaded and whose favour is to be propitiated. Probably the first office or function connected with him was that of directing and controlling the rage of the howling storms. As God of gale and tempest, he is father of the destructive storm-winds, who are also called Rudras, and generally identified with the Maruts. He is also nearly relate to time (kala), the all-consumer, and indeed afterwards identified with him. Siva became to his worshippers the great God (Maha-Deva) and lord of the universe (Jagat-pitri, Visva-natha) who, although he has numerous forms, is generally worshipped under one mystical shape -- a plain upright stone, the sign or symbol (Linga) of generative and creative power -- scattered in millions of shrines over every part of India. Unquestionably all Hindus, even the strictest Vaishnavas, are ready to pay homage to Siva in his characters of dissolver and regenerator. The book is designed to be an informative treatise devoted to Siva."Printed Pages: 608. 100656
