By Arvind Sharma

This presentation of Hinduism rather stresses the intermingling of philosophy and faith in the religion. It hopes to increase the horizons of the traditional philosophy of faith by way of including fabric drawn from Hindu suggestion to its scope of curiosity. by means of therefore juxtaposing the philosophy of faith with Hindu philosophy, the ebook makes an attempt to maneuver in the direction of a cross-cultural philosophy of faith. This sequence of books explores modern non secular understandings of humanity and the universe. It covers the ongoing dialogues among faith and philosophy, scepticism and religion and among the several religions and ideologies.

A similar caveat is in order while discussing the Freudian elements in the Indian materialist critique of religion. For Freud, religion was the collective neurosis of mankind and the key element in this neurosis was the suppression of libidinal instincts. The Indian materialist critique of religion is, however, quite candid on this point. Thus it is clearly said that 'one should enjoy the company of lustful young ladies,7 and that 'licentious persons recite the Vedas only to conceal their weakness, they refer to the Yam(a) Yami Sukta to justify their illegal sexual relations and say that they are only following their holy scriptures.
