Book News
Examines the development and transformation of the concept of jivanmukti (liberation while living) from the Upanishads to the modern era. Thoroughly treats the scholastic Advaita tradition on liberation while living, makes a novel argument for a distinct "Yogic Advaita" tradition found in the Yogavasistha and Jivanmuktiviveka, and explores the modern "neo-Vedanta" view of jivanmukti, which has been influenced by Western concepts. Analyzes the views of modern Hindu figures such as Ramana Maharshi, and considers these thinkers in the context of current academic discussions about the encounter of India and the West.
