Krishna Chandra Bhattacharya (12 May 1875 – 11 December 1949) was a philosopher at the University of Calcutta who studied one of the central questions of Hindu philosophy, which is how mind, life or consciousness creates an apparently material universe.[1]

Early life[edit]

Krishna Chandra Bhattacharya was born on 12 May 1875 at Serampore in a Brahmin family of Sanskrit scholars. Krishnachandra took his school education in a local school.After passing matriculation examination in 1891 he went to the Presidency College, then affiliated with the University of Calcutta.[1]

Works[edit]

His answer was that the question itself is illegitimate, because it is asked from a position anchored in maya (illusion). On attaining knowledge of Brahman, illusion drops away and there are no more questions. The last knowledge that an individual has as an individual is the knowledge that all this is mere illusion. Beyond that is only the blissful residing in Brahman. Until then, "why" is a matter of faith, not reason.

Bhattacharya's major work was "The subject of freedom".
