    The aim of this dissertation is to present a systematic exposition of

    renunciation (Samnyasa) as a philosophico-religious category within Indian

    tradition with special reference to Advaita Vedanta of Samkaracarya. The

    author tried to justify this category as a spiritual technique

    systematically worked out and developed by Advaitins particularly Samkara

    with a view to classifying and systematizing values in terms of the

    different forms which renunciation and its object may be found to assume.

    This dissertation also highlights principles of human behaviour in the

    Indian tradition implicitly clarifying thereby such concepts as dharma

    (socio-religious duties), the good life, obligation and responsibility etc.
