The Brhadaranyaka Upanisad with Sankara's Commentary

Francis X. Clooney, SJ


This seminar is for students interested in the study of primary Indian/Hindu texts, read in translation and in the context of a comparative dynamic of reading religiously across the boundaries of traditions. The Brhadaranyaka Upanisad, Sankara's commentary on it (plus excerpts from Suresvara's Vartikas), will be read (in English) along with short examples from Christian theological/commentarial literature.
