Overview

"This introduction to the Madhva school of Vedanta is accessible to a wide audience with an interest in Hinduism, Indian thought and in the comparative philosophy of religion." Deepak Sarma explores the philosophical foundations of Madhva Vedanta and then presents translations of actual debates between the Madhva and Advaita schools of Vedanta, thus positioning readers at the centre of the 700-year-old controversy between these two schools of Vedanta. Original texts of Madhvacarya are included in Chapter 5 and in Appendix E, in translation and in Sanskrit.
