Prof. Herman then turns, in the second part of the book, to the problem of evil in Indian thought. Beginning with an examination of the Indian doctrine of samsara or rebirth, he examines its possible origins in the Vedas, its status in the Upanisads, the Bhagavad Gita, in several classical darsanas including Buddhism, Jainism, Vedanta, Samkhya and Nyaya.. A major study of transmigration and reincarnation, with a bibliography and index/glossary.
