By A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
The quest for enlightenment spans centuries of human existence. And Quest for Enlightenment presents answers to the perennial questions that have stirred the hearts of philosophers. Is it possible to unravel the puzzle of God, creation, and human existence? Many great minds have failed the task, but there is no puzzle for the greatest mind—God’s. Drawing from God’s words from the Vedic scriptures, Srila Prabhupada, the world’s foremost exponent of Vedic wisdom answers questions about the views of famous Western philosophers and their approach to philosophy and science.
The Quest for Enlightenment is a collection of essays, transcribed conversations, and transcribed lectures by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada on a wide variety of subjects:
Matter, Spirit, and the Controller of Both
The Spiritual Master
Yoga and Meditation for the Age of Quarrel
Spiritual Solutions to Material Problems
Discussions on Western Philosophy and Science
Love of God, the Ultimate Goal
The book’s appendices include an introduction to the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) and the Krishna devotee lifestyle, a brief biography of the author, a Sanskrit pronunciation guide, a glossary, and a directory of ISKCON centers worldwide.
