"In India when the socio-economic structure of feudalism began to
disintegrate, oppositions also began to arise in several parts of the
country in the form of enaissance, reformation and revivalism. Most of
these movements originated and developed within the frame of some
socio-economic, socio-religious and devotional schools in India. All these
sucked vitality from the respective regional cultures. A detailed study of
these movements shows that their origin comes from Sanskrit literature and
from the regional culture influenced by Sanskrit. The reinterpretation of
many stories from the epic and purana tradition, Bhagavdgita,
Dvaita-Advaita Visishtadvaita Philosophies and devotional movements sprung
up through their influence, and the philosopies like Yoga and Carvaka
played the major part in developing and fostering the human centered
awakening and the ideas of liberty, equality the human centered awakening
and the ideas of liberty, equality and fraternity. The papers collected
here is an attempt to re-assess and highlight these factors."
