Philosophy is an overall vision or attitude towards life and the purpose of life. It is a resolute attempt to understand and appreciate the universe as a whole, and enquire into the nature of truth and reality. This book offers an insight into Hindu Philosophy, with special focus on its principles of life and beyond. Tracing the origin of life on earth, it presents the Indian religious view of the universe and tie. Further advancing proofs for the existence of God, it deals with the six prominent schools of Indian Philosophy - Sankhya, Yoga, Vaiseshik, Anaya, Mimansa and Vedanta. Making a comparative study of the Western and Indian views of pluralism vis- -vis monism, it also presents an elaborate discussion on ethics, transmigration of soul and rebirth, the hierarchy of self-realization, and salvation or Moksha.
