Description: This book constitutes a study of Upamana – a means of valid knowledge for the comprehension of Ultimate Reality i.e. Brahman. The book is divided into fourteen chapters which discuss elaborately the concept of Upamana (comparison) as found in the different systems of philosophy – Nyaya – Vaiseska – Mimamsa – Vedanta – Samkhya – Bauddha and Jaina. The author has exploited various relevant original texts – Sutras, Bhasyas, Varttikas, etc., belonging to each and every school of thought. In the course of discussion he has made an attempt to co–ordinate and evaluate the elements supplied by various systematists, to the problems regarding nature, kind and process involved.
