The objective of this highly rewarding book Indian Philosophy of Knowledge is to highlight the main purpose of gaining knowledge. The highest knowledge in Vedas and Upanishads is the knowledge of Brahman which leads to liberation. The Sankhya system promises complete cessation of all sorrows. The Yoga is entirely devoted to the attainment of kaivalya. Gautama, in his Nyayasutra asserts that their knowledge would lead to the attainment of the liberation. The Vaishesika and Mimamsa begins with the interpretation of dharma as the means for attainment of the worldly as well as transcendental well-being. The Buddhists aim of knowledge is to remove passions and to show the path of nirvana. The removal of karmic matter is the main theme of knowledge in Jaina philosophy. Printed Pages: 216.
