Princeton Lecture Video, “Infinite Paths to Infinite Reality: Sri Ramakrishna’s Vijñāna-Based Doctrine of the Harmony of All Religions”

As part of my responsibilities as Visiting Professor at Princeton University for 2018-9, I am inviting guest speakers for a lecture series entitled “New Directions in Indian and Comparative Philosophy.” We are recording each of these lectures to share with interested students and scholars around the world. The first of our speakers was Ayon Maharaj, whose talk on Nov. 27 was entitled “Infinite Paths to Infinite Reality: Sri Ramakrishna’s Vijñāna-Based Doctrine of the Harmony of All Religions.” Click on this link to hear his lecture, followed by a formal response by Vineet Chander and an audience Q-and-A.

Stay tuned for videos of upcoming lectures in 2019 by guest speakers such as Arindam Chakrabarti (Stony Brook University) and Isabelle Ratié (Université de la Sorbonne Nouvelle).

  1. Thanks for sharing the link! I decided to show the talk to my Eastern Philosophy students today and many are asking for the link themselves.

  2. You’re welcome! An updated link containing all of the lectures as they become available from Princeton’s “New Directions in Indian and Comparative Philosophy” is here: http://piirs.princeton.edu/certificates/program-south-asian-studies/new-directions-indian-and-comparative-philosophy

    In addition to Ayon Maharaj’s talk, the site contains a video of a talk by Arindam Chakrabarti, “How Can Humans Learn from Normative Narratives about Non-Humans? Friendships, Fables and Foibles in the Mahabharata.”
