Sri Yantra and The Geophilosophy of India(Hardbound)
The concept of geophilosophy, or to be more precise geo-metaphysics, is an enduring bond between the philosophical thought and its terrestrial support. Essentially the geographical positioning of a country influences its thinking and thus impacts its philosophy. Sri-yantra, a mythical instrument, strikes a balance between the gross subtle and causal dimensions of the microcosmic and macrocosmic phenomena. It syncs with the esoteric ontology of the cosmos, the individual body, the state, the nation in its geographic aspect, all creative and conducive societal values, and the grand unification of existing dogmas, doctrines, creeds and commitments. The author talks about his speculation of a triangular semblance of the Indian subcontinent and his intuitive experiences of ancient axioms of Eastern metaphysics. He elucidates that Sri-yantra, once esoteric, has become exoteric and can still retain its crown position in India. This book is a valuable accumulation of various facts, figures and values from myriad canons of mystic revelations. It also provides a type of interpolative vindication or justification of the two apparently conflicting ideologies of the oriental and occidental origins. Sri-yantra has made a strong footprint in the geophilosophy of India and beyond, and has a major stake in India's landscape, code of Indian civilization, and is set to make a difference in various walks of Indian life. This unusual volume sheds light on many a topic, which will interest readers of a wider spectrum.
