    Are Cognitive States Self-revealing?Kisor K. Chakrabarti - 2022 - Journal of Indian Philosophy and Religion 27:116-166.
    This paper is historical and is devoted to an old controversy in the Indian philosophical tradition with the Vedantins (and others) holding that cognitive states are self-revealing and the Nyaya taking the opposite position. I have summarized the major Vedantin arguments for their viewpoint and offered a critique from the Nyaya perspective. This throws light on a major philosophical controversy in the Indian tradition, a controversy that has not been studied in-depth in the Western tradition. Notably the problem of induction, (...)

    Sixfold Pramāṇic Method in Śaṅkara’s and Rāmānuja’s Vedānta.Steven Tsoukalas - 2022 - Journal of Indian Philosophy and Religion 27:88-115.
    Śaṅkara and Rāmānuja were not solely textists; nor were they merely existential metaphysicians; nor were they a combination of both. Rather, their epistemologies involve a sixfold use of vitally important sacred and secular pramāṇa-s as instruments in orchestrated fashion where symphonies of their respective ontologies are given to their listeners. With the two Vedāntins, no pramāṇa is in every case the lead instrument. Rather, they employ any of the six as lead instrument at various times, depending on the pedagogic and/or (...)

    A Dialogue of Life and Death: Transformative Dialogue in the Katha Upanishad and Plato’s Phaedo.Shai Tubali - 2022 - Journal of Indian Philosophy and Religion 27:54-87.
    The Phaedo’s intense preoccupation with the notions of self-liberation and self-transcendence in the face of death is strikingly reminiscent of Hindu and Buddhist philosophies. It is therefore not surprising that comparative philosophers have shown great interest in comparing this particular Platonic work to various South Asian texts: The Phaedo has been compared to the philosophy underlying yoga and Patanjali, The Tibetan Book of the Dead, and Mahāparinibbāṇa Sutta, the canonical account of the Buddha’s final days. Of particular relevance is the (...)

    Mapping the Intertextuality between the 41 Verses and the Sūtra of Mahā-prajñāpāramitā Pronounced by Mañjuśrī Bodhisattva.Juyan Zhang - 2022 - Journal of Indian Philosophy and Religion 27:3-53.
    Edward Conze suggested that the first two chapters of the Ratnaguṇa (hereafter “the 41 verses”) were the earliest Mahāyāna text. Yet the origin of the verses and their relationship with other prajñāpāramitā texts have been murky. Through five levels of analysis, this research argues that the 41 verses were most likely the verse section of the Sūtra of Mahā-prajñāpāramitā Pronounced by Mañjuśrī Bodhisattva (SMPMB) and later became independent and expanded. The five levels of analysis are as follows. First, the Mahāyāna (...)
