An Essay on Hindu Philosophy from a Mathematician's Perspective

Authors: Joseph I. Thomas

It is a spectacular thing to observe that only a few of the Great Religions of the World have a philosophical basis that is grounded in raw logical thinking. Hinduism in its most Ancient theological form belongs to this special class, where all ponderings on the human condition are akin to a mathematician musing on the properties of numbers or a physicist churning meaning out of symbols and equations. This essay attempts to demonstrate how, much of what is considered the profoundest of Ancient Hindu doctrines can be tamed to fit into a systematic axiomatic framework, by means of which higher truths can be arrived at. Beginning with an elucidation of basic doctrines and statements of symbolic axioms, theorems are then formulated.
