The Encyclopaedia of Vedanta is first of its kind, and it took full ten years to complete it, apart from one year of publication.
The Encyclopaedia has been divided into three parts. The first part deals with Vedantic terms, and words, like Brahman and Avidya. While presenting the study of these terms, the apt quotations and reference have been incorporated. Wherever necessary, a critical and doctrinal explanation has also been added to.
In second part, a description about the contribution of significant western scholars in the field of Vedanta has been given.
The third part deals with the Sankaracaryas and their Mathas and some Indian scholars and philosophers of Vedanta.
