The investigators and students of the ancient civilisation, traditions and culture of India have been regularly acknowledged the gigantic dimensions, excellence and enduring character of the Indian heritage. Everything in India has been on colossal scale; it’s mountains, rivers, its wealth both spiritual and material and its literature, Vedas, Vedanta, Upanishads, Puranas, Epics, Literature, Pantheon, Rituals, and Sects etc. All these breathe the social, religious, spiritual and cultural development of ages. It is the innate truths and intrinsic merit of the Indian heritage and its traditions that has preserved its pristine glory from the ravages of time and foreign invasions.

The strength of Indian traditions lies in its infinite adaptability to the infinite diversity of human character and human tendencies. It has its highly spiritual and abstract side suited to the philosopher; its practical and concrete side congenial to the man of world; its aesthetics and ceremonial side attuned to the man of poetic feeling and imagination; its quiescent contemplating aspect that has its appeal for the man of peace and the lover of seclusion. Monier-Williams had written in his famous work Brahmanism and Hinduism that — “The Hindus were Spinozists more than 2000 years before the advent of Spinoza, Darwinians many centuries before Darwin, and evolutionists many centuries before the doctrine of evolution was accepted by scientists of the present age.”

Indian wisdom has been tested and sharpened on the whetstone of multiple approaches to the panorama of like, and, in the sequel, produced heritage of ever-lasting value. This legacy has been a source of perpetual stimulation to the scholars the world over. The researchers into the Indian heritage and its wisdom have produced a prodigious volume of material on this profound and diversely complex civilisation. No one can deny that such a large mass of material on the land and the colourful traditions of its people cannot but be a combined appraisal of all its strengths.

This Encyclopaedia of Indian Heritage, offers a panoramic view of the heritage of India which abound in a variety of priceless gems in the shape of monumental literary works; profound theories of philosophical contemplation; apparently diverse Schools of Thought which rise from the same source; a great lineage of philosophical thinkers, saints, seers and religious leaders who have in the past and in the present guide man to the cosmic reality; an incomparable literary tradition; an infinite pantheon; the places of worship and pilgrimage; grandiose amount of scientific literature; arouse as much admiration and interest today as it has for ages. This monumental work is the most finite and comprehensive presentation on the great and enduring spiritual, cultural, historical and religious wisdom which together comprise the components of Indian heritage.
