Tradition and Modernity by D.P Mukerji

D.P Mukerji asserts that traditions do change.These principles of change are recognized in Indian traditons as Shruti,Smriti and Anubhava.It is the anubhava or personal experience which is revolutionary principle.The experience of prem or love and sahaj or spontaniety of these saints and their followers was noticeable also in Sufis. The country has preserved many values.However blind following of tradition is not acceptable.The knowledge of tradition shows the way to break them with the least social cost.A dialectical process of conflict and synthesis must be given a push by the conserved energies of the class structure of Indian society.
