Summary
This volume argues for the importance of vernacular Vedanta and draws attention to the late scholastic period of Indian philosophy. Focusing on The Ocean of Inquiry of Niscaldas (ca. 1791-1863) - a work once referred to as the most influential book in India - the present book highlights the author's vision of intellectual inquiry as a spiritual practice and argues for the relevance of scholastic traditions to the emergence of modern Hinduism
