Maritain and Indian Philosophy

I had known from Joaquim D'Souza that Maritain had taken a great interest in Indian philosophy, to the extent of encouraging Oliver Lacombe to specialize in Sanskrit and Indian Philosophy and come out with great books such as L'Absolu selon le Vedanta.

But I learnt something more yesterday: that Maritain had himself translated Georges Dandoy's An Essay in the Doctrine of the Unreality of the World in the Advaita (Calcutta, 1919). See L'ontologie du Vedanta, tr. J. Maritain (Paris, 1932).
