Hindu Darsanas or Schools of Philosophy
Hindu philosophy is deeply integrated into Hinduism. It is difficult to separate the two. However, it is also true that some schools of Hinduism are atheistic and secular and approach the truths from perceptual, verifiable and objective experience. Traditionally, scholars accept six major schools of Hinduism called the Darsanas. A darsana is a view or a perspective of the reality or the truths about existence, the nature of reality, creation, role of God, validation of truth, the purpose and the importance of human life, etc. The following are a important essays, e-texts and resources on various philosophies or schools of Hinduism and related subjects.
