Ultimate Reality ~ Index of pages

The great distinction between teachers sacred or literary, ... between men of the world, who are reckoned accomplished talkers, and here and there a fervent mystic, prophesying, half insane under the infinitude of his thought, is, that one class speak from within, or from experience, as parties and possessors of the fact; and the other class, from without, as spectators merely, or perhaps as acquainted with the fact on the evidence of third persons. It is of no use to preach to me from without. I can do that too easily myself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Atman which is Brahman relationships
in Indian Vedic Philosophy

Something of a proof of the Existence of an Ultimate Reality:-

The one God or Spirit which is the focus of Mystical Faith.




Christian Spirituality Quotations




The divergency between Christianity (every Monotheism!) and Hinduism

N.B. This can (just about) be perceived as being moreso as
one of Emphasis or Focus rather than one of the deepest Essentials of Faith

We hope, and expect, that it will be possible to see our contribution as being consistent with such Sermons and Parables of Jesus as The Sermon on the Mount and The Parable of the Sower.
We nevertheless have great respect for the Spiritualities that exist at the cores of such major faiths as Buddhism, Islam, Judaim, Sikhism, Taoism and Vedanta-Hinduism and have laid out the above table of links in a manner consistent with our aspiration towards promoting a mutually respectful co-existence of The Great Religions of the World.

A representative collection of the Spiritual and Poetic wisdoms
presented here at Age of the Sage is available to download from this page

We are pleased to make available a series of quite brief, but nevertheless informative, pages about the highly significant and historically instructive European Revolutions of 1848 :-

1 The European Revolution of 1848 begins
A broad outline of the background to the onset of the turmoils and a consideration of some of the early events in Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Budapest and Prague.

2 The French Revolution of 1848
A particular focus on France - as an Austrian foreign minister said "When France sneezes Europe catches a cold".

3 The "Italian" Revolution of 1848
A "liberal" Papacy after 1846 helps allow the embers of an "Italian" national aspiration to rekindle across the Italian Peninsula.

4 The Revolution of 1848 in the German Lands and central Europe
"Germany" had a movement for a single parliament in 1848 and many central European would-be "nations" attempted to promote a distinct existence for their "nationality".

5 The European Revolutions - reactionary aftermath 1848-1849
Some instances of social and political extremism allow previously pro-reform liberal elements to join conservative elements in supporting the return of traditional authority. Such nationalities living within the Habsburg Empire as the Czechs, Croats, Slovaks, Serbs and Roumanians, find it more credible to look to the Emperor, rather than to the democratised assemblies recently established in Vienna and in Budapest as a result of populist agitation, for the future protection of their nationality.
The Austrian Emperor and many Kings and Dukes regain political powers. Louis Napoleon, (who later became the Emperor Napoleon III), elected as President in France offering social stability at home but ultimately follows policies productive of dramatic change in the wider European structure of states and their sovereignty.

6 Some detailed historical background to the European Revolutions of 1848
Some quite detailed background information relating to the historical situation just prior to the onset of the European Revolutions of 1848 is available on this linked page.
