Description

Though Bengal is proud of having produced the great Vedantin Madhusudana Saraswati in the sixteenth century, Swami Vivekananda lamented in 1888, The Vedas may well be said to have fallen quite out of vogue in Bengal. And it was Swamiji’s desire to revive the study of the Vedas and Vedanta in this part of the country. The present volume, Vedanta in Bengal, by Dr R K Dasgupta, is based on twelve thought-provoking lectures given by the author at the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture.

These lectures give a brief survey of the influence of Vedanta on Bengal’s religious and philosophical thoughts from the Pala-Sena period to the modern era, and they point to the undeniable fact that Vaishnavism, Shaktism, the Brahmo Movement, the Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Movement, and other religious movements in Bengal all had their foundation in Vedanta.
