Abstract

Eastern Religions vary in their approach to Natural Theology, generally dependent on the relationship that they see between the human mind, and the deeper levels of religious or metaphysical truth. This chapter looks at the form that relationship can take then goes on to examine the example of Hindu Cosmological Arguments. Here they are categorised into four forms of cosmological argument, each of which displays illuminating similarities, and even more illuminating differences from the standard Western approaches.
