Abstract:

"The strong point of Liberation Philosophy: From the Buddha to Omar Khayyam is its integrative approach, bringing into dialogue Western and Eastern thought and bearing witness to the exceptional insights of its author, a global mind and traveler between the worlds. It is an original work in the truest sense, thought provoking and spirited. I expect the book to be appealing to scholars and students who are interested in philosophy as a practical and meaningful discipline with great potential of enlightening our minds and who are, however, dissatisfied with rather esoterical and sloppy publications on Indian philosophies etc. It will particularily be relevant to people looking for moral and spiritual exemplary thinkers beyond the trodden paths."--
