The Encyclopaedia of Vedanta is first of its kind, and it took full ten years to complete it,apart from one year of publication. It is divided into three parts. The first part deals with Vedantic terms, and words, like Brahman and Avidya. While presenting the study of these terms, apt quotations and references have been incorporated. Wherever necessary, a critical and doctrinal explanation has also been added. In the second part, a description about the contribution of significant western scholars in the field of Vedanta has been given. The third part deals with the Sankaracharyas and their Mathas and some Indian scholars and philosophers of Vedanta. In the foreword, Shankar Dayal Sharma, ex-President of India says "Vedanta represents a subject of vast ramifications involving a profound accumulation of thought synthesising philosophical and spiritual insights gained over centuries. The preparation of an encyclopaedia of Vedanta is an extremely challenging task. Few would be equal to it. This volume compiled by Prof. Ram Murti Sharma and his eminent colleagues is an endeavour representing international academic co-operation and years of pains taking labour. The encyclopaedia is a welcome addition to the corpus of literature that may help the world today in understanding the subtle, deep, as well as simple and direct perceptions innate to our ancient heritage of thought bearing a continuing reference to our well being today as in the future.
