Book Summary
"Modern Hinduism has been plagued by arguments that the form it has taken today is not its original form but a result of colonial rule. Academics have voiced notions that the traditions of dharma did not show any signs of unification before the British came to India. Swami Vivekananda's views have been targeted often when citing these arguments. Vivekananda has been blamed for hiding oppositions within traditional Hinduism. He is said to have borrowed western religious ideologies to fabricate the current version of Hinduism. Indra's Net refutes these notions by giving you a basis for the theories that oppose the Hinduism we see today. The author of Indra's Net gives a detailed reply to these arguments, offering a multidimensional view of reality that justifies Hindu dharmic traditions. He provides you with several discerning examples where appropriations from Hinduism have resulted in progress in the areas of neuroscience, cognitive science and various other fields. Indra's Net: Defending Hinduisms Philosophical Unity defends Vivekananda as well, stating that his innovative understanding of Hinduism had an impact on intellectual movements in the west during the post-modern era. The book was published in 2014 and is available in hardcover."
