About The Book India is country well known for its spirituality which has its basis in Dharma. With Indian cultures and philosophies being frequently adopted in the West, its distinctiveness and potential s being diluted. Being Different provides a Dharmic point of view for looking at the Western philosophies, thereby suggesting vast differences in Dharma and the West. Being Different mentions six fundamental points of difference between the Dharmic traditions and the West. This discussion and debate is done by using the venerable tradition of purva-paksha, an ancient Dharmic technique. The crux of this technique lies in being knowledgeable about all perspectives and foregoes the obsession to simply taking a stand and winning it. The six points of difference between Dharma and the West include aspects like Approaches to Difference, History-centrism of the West vs. The Inner Sciences of Dharma, Integral unity vs. Synthetic unity, The nature of chaos and uncertainty, Translatability vs. Sanskrit and a challenge to Western claims of universalism against Dharma's non-linear approach. The author brings out striking contrasts and examines the beliefs that both the sides hold. Being Different was published by HarperCollins on 12 July 2013 and is available in paperback.
