Sankhya Aphorisms of Kapila - J.R. Ballantyne

Sankhya Philosophy is one of the six major schools of Hindu Philosophy (Shad Darshanas). Sage Kapila is traditionally considered to be the founder of the Sankhya school. It is regarded as one of the oldest philosophical systems in India.

This translation of aphorisms of Kapila by J.R. Ballantyne is so rendered as to make it possible for an average reader to understand the complex thought structure of Sankhya philosophy in a language that is easy and graspable. It will be of great help to those who are desirous of knowing not only the historical background of Indian thought, but also want to know as to how existential questions of life and death have been tackled by our ancestors.
