Description: This glossary seeks to explain the significance of various terms and concepts which characterize different religious systems of India and also to point out that an in-depth study of religious terminology is likely to prove the common origin of all the systems which are specifically different in their functional aspects but have some general likenesses. The logical, epistemological and metaphysical terms and concepts, as also those pertaining to the ritual and other aspects of religious life, originated from one primary source and these were adopted in all the religio-philosophical systems of India with various modifications. Considering the vastness of the material, only the more important terms have been included. A detailed index has been privided for cross-referencing as well as for terms not included in the glossary as separate entries. Introductory portion deals with the sources along with a brief history of lexical and terminological studies and the various problems involved therein. A detailed bibliography has also been provided.
