From Emotions in Indian Thought-Systems
PURUSHOTTAMA BILIMORIA AND ALEKSANDRA WENTA
“It would be hard to deny the important role played by emotions in the religious and philosophical landscape of India, from the most remote past to the present. The emotional attitude pervades most — if not all — intellectual and religious discourses of Indian culture. In a variety of knowledge traditions, emotions often provide a basis for the affec-tive unfolding of conscious thought, thereby revealing its depth and intensity; emotions also constitute the most tangible and fundamental attitude in mankind’s quest for the sacred and self-discovery.”
