Indian Philosophy-1- Introduction, Charvaka Materialism by Swami Samarpanananda
Indian philosophy is known as darshan, meaning to see correctly. The goal of every Indian philosophy is to enquire in the nature of man, world, and the ultimate reality – and from there to acquire unbounded joy. For some, this joy may lie in sense pleasure, while for others it may be in nirvana, and mukti.
This talk discusses the philosophy of the materialists, known as Charvak. This series of talks was delivered at Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda University, Belur Math, in 2017 and is being republished here with permission.
