SWG Episode 24 - 5 Minute Philosophy: Intro to Eastern Philosophy Part 2 Indian
Join me for part 2 of Indian Philosophy where we mostly discuss Vedanta, with a little bit on Political philosophy at the end.
From the page: "The Arthashastra, attributed to the Mauryan minister Chanakya in the 4th Century B.C., is one of the earliest Indian texts devoted to political philosophy, and it discusses ideas of statecraft and economic policy. During the Indian struggle for independence in the early 20th Century, Mahatma Gandhi popularized the philosophies of ahimsa (non-violence) and satyagraha (non-violent resistance), which were influenced by the teachings of the Hindu Bhagavad Gita, as well as Jesus, Tolstoy, Thoreau and Ruskin." http://philosophybasics.com
