Jvanmukti in neo-hinduism: The case of ramaa mahari

Asian Philosophy 15 (3):207 – 220 (2005)

Jvanmukti or 'living liberation' has been identified as a distinguishing feature of Indian thought; or, upon drawing a narrower circle, of Hindu thought; and upon drawing an even narrower cocentric circle of Vedānta - of Advaita Vedānta. In some recent studies the cogency of its formulation within Advaita Vedānta has been questioned - but without reference to the testimony of its major modern exemplar, Rama a Mahar i (1879-1950). This paper examines the significance of the life and statements of Rama a Mahar i for the current debate in the context of neo-Hinduism.
