Theory of Karman in Indian Thought

Posted on | July 17, 2017 | No Comments

Theory of Karman in Indian ThoughtThe problem of suffering and diversity of human nature is a great riddle which has been discussed widely in the eastern spiritual traditions for thousands of years. This book, the Theory of Karman in Indian Thought, outlines how the different schools have worked with the problem of Karma from the Upanishads, the Tantric sects to the ancient Jain scholars. The Jainas for instance call for the extinction of karma as essential to the attainment of salvation. The Buddhists interpreted karma strictly in terms of ethical cause and effect. Chapter I deals with Vedas and Dharmasastras to find out the mystery of karman. Chapter II describes Karman in Agama and Tantra. Chapter III gives the concept of karman in the Epics. Chapter IV mentions karman in the Puranas. Chapter V gives the description of karma as found in various systems of Indian philosophy. Chapters VI and VII tell us respectively about karman in Buddhism and Jainism.
