About the Book :

The U.N. Declarations and Conventions on human rights are rooted in Indian mysticism. Indian mystical revelations and U.N. Declarations separated by thousands of years are one and the same. What sort of relationship can be their between Indian mysticism and United Nations Declarations and Conventions on the human rights? This book is all about them. It brings out the parallels on human rights and police as they are seen in Indian mysticism and U.N. Declarations. The inner self is called Atman which is Brahman immanent in man. This is in essence the basis of human rights every where. Dharma in Indian mysticism signifies man obligation which includes respect of human rights and the dignity of man. The United Nations repeatedly voices against a dharma which is nothing but violation of human rights. This is what is seen in Indian mysticism and in U.N. Declarations, Conventions and Proclamations which are intended to lead people to reality, light and immortality. The book concludes by observing a hitherto unresearched truth that the modern human rights concept is merely an offshoot, though a flourishing one, of the Indian mystical parent tree. The book will certainly interest the police, criminologists, human rights activists, victimologists, women and students of Indian and western philosophy.
