Ancient Indian Vedanta stood for spiritual education. It sought to liberate human values. Western educationists are today talking of SQ along with EQ and IQ, as necessary for a complete human being. In India, the Neo-Vedanta of early twentieth century modernised and revived the ancient ideal of education, long before the west awakened to spiritual values. This book describes and evaluates this Neo Vedanta education. After an introductory chapter on Neo Vedanta philosophy, the author has analysted and highlighted the Neo Vedanta education in the educational philosophy of Swami Dayananda, Annie Besant, Swami Vivekananda, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Sri Aurobindo and Sarvapalli Radhakrishanan. This book is a unique contribution to the present meeting of east and west on value education. It is a must on the desk of every teacher, every educationist and every leader.
