Indian Parampara is a response to secular Western thought on tradition and modernity. Presented here are contributors from a distinguished group of Indian scholars representing a wide spectrum of disciplines. It raises many questions: What is the source of parampara? How is it transmitted? Does it hold in potential the characteristics of all orders of knowledge? Who was the parent of its primal seed? How does the individual sustain the flow of parampara or tradition? Is the individual artist capable of sustaining creativity and initiating change? Does he have to take the path of confrontation with parampara? How does the person transcend the small I to enlarge himself into the We? What is that experience of the Self where duality between the subject and the object is lost? To answer such central questions the authors of this volume reflect on anthropological, philosophical, spiritual, musical, poetical, and experiential dimensions. This book is an important contribution to traditional thought and culture.
