"A unifying vision between `Samsara and Nirvana' has been presented in this study
by placing human beings at the centre of the universe. Once this is accepted, the role of
God turns to be nothing. This fact is not acceptable to most of the schools of Indian
philosophy because of their strong faith in `Brahman' (God) as the creator of the
universe. In that, this study raises the fundamental question. Why `Brahman', being the
creator, sustainer and dissolver of the univers, has taken such a long time of more than
three billion years after the solar system to provide the conditions for the evolution of
human life? Since the first cause of universe is the most difficult question, it is
suggested to see the creator on the creation itself.
An inference has been drawn that the action (karma) of human beings cannot be treated
as ignorance, once it is accepted that human beings are the centre of the universe. We
human beings have nothing else except the freedom of action (karma). In fact, karma
iteself is freedom.
This volume, in a way, an offshoot of the author's earlier work, `Science of
Consciousness' draws the inferences based on the different systems of Indian philosophy
and the philosophy of the West."
