ALOK KUMAR

Journal Title:SCHOLARLY RECSEARCH JOURNAL FOR INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES
Abstract


Appearance and reality are one of the most fundamental concepts in philosophy. ?a ? ka ra has made significant contributions in developing the notions of appearance and reality.Appearance and reality are two but interrelated concepts in philosophy. These are not only the ontological issues but also their nature and status shape of epistemolo gical quest. The basic questions are: What is genuinely real? What is mere appearance and not reality? Is there any connection between appearance and reality? Is there any realm which is Ultimate Reality? Is the phenomenal world merely appearance? If the o bjects are merely appearances, how do we bring them into reality? What are the means through which we move from appearances to the reality? ?a ? kara has answered these questions in his concept of Nirgu ? a Brahman, vivartav?da, anirvacan?ya khy?tiv?da and J?v an - mukti. He, while resolving the dualism of appearance and reality, establishes his Advaita Ved?nta philosophical system in which there is no place for distinction, duality, dichotomy and plurality at all.
