Analysis of theism of the Nya̅ya Philosophy - An analytical study
The Nya̅ya Philosophy is known as theistic philosophy in Indian philosophical literature. The Nya̅ya Philosophy usually refers to an entire community. As a result, all texts in the Nya̅ya Philosophy are considered within the scope of discussion. Maharishi Gautama was the founder of this Nya̅ya Philosophy. He wrote the book Nya̅yasu̅tra, which is the original text of the Nya̅ya Philosophy.Therefore, we have resorted Nya̅yasu̅tra as the representative of the Nya̅ya Philosophy in this research paper and have analysed for why the Nya̅ya Philosophy is called as theist? This is the main topic of this research paper. But there are some doubts in this topic. For example, it is not clear from Gautama's opinion that the God (i̅śvara) is the creator of the Vedas.If that is not, then Gautama's opinion will conflict with the words of the Vedas, and so on. This research article analyses all these doubts. Therefore, the main requirement of this research paper is to dispel these doubts and analyse the above topic properly. This research paper follows Analytical Research Methodology.
