BOOK EXCERPT:

The Hindu scriptures the Upanishads are, according to German scholar PAUL DEUSSEN (1845-1919), the culminating point of the Indian doctrine of the universe, an achievement that had been reached even before the arrival of the Buddha. In this work-originally published in German in 1906 and translated into English two years later-Deussen explores the place of the Upanishads in the literature of the Veda and explains the theology, cosmology, and psychology of that holy book. A landmark for East-West cross-cultural scholarship, The Philosophy of the Upanishads helped create the European understanding of the mind and heart of India, a philosophical and cultural endeavor that consumed both academics and armchair truth-seekers of the day. Today, it is still essential reading for anyone wishing to obtain a deeper knowledge of Indian spiritual wisdom.

BOOK EXCERPT:

After a brief introduction on the idea of culture, enculturation and acculturation in social anthropology, a theology of culture, symbol and language is treated in order to lead to the central subject-matter of the Christian theology of inculturation, which is articulated in themes such as revelation and culture, redemptive incarnation as an exemplary model of inculturation, Lay people and inculturation, missionary spirituality and inculturation. The final chapters deal with inculturation in the Indian Church, the meeting of the Gospel with Asian religions, cultures and aspirations for full humanity, and Asian Christian theology.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This installment of “Nectar” is dedicated to the auspicious boon and blessing of sacred scripture. In Vedic tradition, scripture is seen as something revealed rather than written; wisdom inherent in Consciousness instead of something created by the mind. It is nitya, anadi and apaurasheya — eternally present and accessible, without beginning or end, and “not ascribable to human authorship.” Other viewpoints consider that these sacred teachings come from Ishvara, God’s presence in the universe, or that the actual knowledge comes from God while the language is supplied by luminaries. Finally, one school believes that scripture is only a product of the finest human intellect. Whatever the case may be, these teachings are very valuable to all who would cross the ocean of birth and death (samsara) and establish themselves in their undying and immortal essence.
