India has opposed a constant challenge to western Christian thought as it has developed under Hebrew guidance, with its insistence on individual immortality and on a personal God whose essential nature is based on an absolute distinction between good and evil. Indian postulates are very different from those which the Christian West has been taught to regard as the only logical and the only possible ones. This book sketches in broad outline the essential ideas behind the Indian outlook upon the universe and upon human life.
