    schema:description "In 1995, Chaturvedi Badrinath was invited to write a series of short articles, of about 1,000 words each, on diverse topics related to Indian philosophy and thought, by the 'Times of India'. They were published over a period of time beginning 1995 to wide acclaim. The aim was to engage the ordinary reader, who was perhaps unacquainted with formal Philosophy, but was in search of meaning in the midst of the pressures of modern life. In a world increasingly filled with fear, violence, and terrorism, ordinary people seek ways in which to order their lives. Badrinath had an entirely original approach to the six darsanas or worldviews. His thoughts were crystallized over a life spent in deep reflection and engagement with these seminal philosophies. He was able to render the most sophisticated ideas in language that was simple and accessible. Through his writing, the most ancient philosophy was shown to have immediate relevance to modern times. The current volume brings together 35 articles written by Chaturvedi Badrinath, edited by his daughter, Tulsi Badrinath."@en ;
