An Enquiry into Psychology Soul and Absolute
An Enquiry into Psychology Soul and Absolute
Description

From the Jacket

This book, An Enquiry into Psychology, Soul and absolute by Swami Prajnanananda, is a brief but critical survey of the problem of Psychology, Soul and Absolute.

The soul or self is the prime-mover of the mind, its modifications and its functions, but the Absolute is above all of them. This book has thrown sufficient light upon those principles, mind, soul and Absolute, and has made their status and stands clear.

The book has further discussed about different schools of psychology and their findings, and has solved their problems with the help of arguments and rational views, as maintained and forwarded by Swami Abhedananda in his illuminating book, True Psychology.

This book has solved many mysteries of psychology and philosophy, and has come to the conclusion that the true knowledge of the Absolute is the only means to go beyond the mind and to cut asunder the knot of nescience that binds men head to foot in the trap of worldliness.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
