The Absolute Point of View

The Absolute Point of View

(p.174) Chapter 15 The Absolute Point of View

Srinivasa Rao

Oxford University Press

The idea of the primacy of the Absolute’s point of view is a fundamental requirement in Advaita. Using this point of view as the criterion, Advaita declares the empirical world to be not real. But only if “the other” is truly there, such a step would be really warranted. Besides, once such a point of view is admitted, there will be several implications that logically follow from it and all such implications must also be satisfactory and tenable. This chapter is a brief examination of this important issue in Advaita.

Keywords:   Advaita, empirical world, “the other”, implications, points of view
