Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and the Dynamics of Neo-Buddhism
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8121205085; Hardcover; New; New; 
Those from the lowest rung of the Caste structure of Hinduism needed more than mere courage to resist the system. Such people of low origin, specially the Untouchables, had either to resign themselves to their fate (anticipating better deal in their next birth) or could at the most create an awareness and organize superficial social Reforms within the structure. Noble souls like Mahatma Gandhi did yeomen service to the cause of the Untouchables, now known as Dalits. But the only known person in the History of India who launched and organized a mass agitation successfully against such an evil system was Dr. Babasaheb B.R. Ambedkar.This book traces the history of how he fought against such a suffocating system, why he had to renounce Hinduism and what made him choose Buddhism for himself and his fellow Dalits. It focuses how right he was in his choice to effect the changes he had visualized.This book covers in brief Dr. Ambedkar's understanding of Buddhism and analyses his magnum opus-The Buddha and His Dhamma. It also evaluates neo-Buddhism (Navayana) as a social Philosophy and studies the impact neo-Buddhism on the population, socio-economic structure of the Indian polity and the effect overseas.The book presents the relevance of the Theories of three eminent western thinkers of outstanding repute to Dr. Ambedkar and the neo-Buddhist Movement as a whole. It finally makes a dispassionate Critique of Dr. Ambedkar, neo-Buddhism and the neo-Buddhists.In the course of study, the reader will note his dent neo-Buddhism has made into the caste system prevailing in India and the reflowering of human Values amongst the Dalits and their social ethos As such, the book is a socio-religious Study of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and the dynamics of neo-Buddhism in India today.Printed Pages: 231. 105816

The Water Horse and Other Years: A History of 17th and 18th Century Tibet (Second Edition)
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8185102341; Second Edition; Softcover; New; 
The water-horse and Other years is a History of Tibet during the 17th and 18th centuries, roughly covering the period from the First to the Seventh Dalai Lamas. It attempts to capture the sound and fury of the sectarian and regional conflicts and turmoil that dominated the larger part of some of the most violent and power-hungry chapters in Tibetan history, when diverse personalities such as Qusot Gushri Khan, Desi Sonam chophel, Karma Tenkyong Wangpo, Desi Sangay Gyatso, Qosot Lhazing Khan, Kanchenay Sona, Gyalpo, Miwang Pholanay Sonam Topgyal, Gyurmed Namgyal, and many other roamed across the Tibetan landscape in Search f personal, sectarian, or regional victory and domination. And Between the Lines of these violent and frightening chapters run the lives the Dalai Lamas and the Panchen Lamas, constantly providing spiritual solace and strength to the suffering Tibetan masses crushed under ceaseless power struggles between the Tibetan regents, Mongol chiefs, and Manchu emperors. Above all, The water-horse and other Years traces the political rise of Ganden Phodrang as personified in the person and Institution of the Dalai Lamas, who have kept Tibet alive throughout the centuries.Printed Pages: 115. 103643

Songs of the Sixth Dalai Lama
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8185102112; Reprint; Softcover; New; 
The Sixth Dalai Lama Losang Rigdzin Tsangyang Gyatsho (1683-1706), whose name means “The Ocean of Melodious Songs” was a special Dalai Lama.Born in renowned Nyingma Family and brought up at a late age in the Gelugpa tradition, Tsangyang Gyatsho proved to be an uncomfortable blend of the tow traditions. But leaving aside the unfortunate politics that surrounded his desolate life, Tsangyang Gyatsho brought to holy Lhasa and Shol taverns some of the purest and most beautiful lyrics of all times.Extraordinary as a lover of wine and women, melodious as A Singer of love songs and above all, tragic as a national hero of the status of a Dalai Lama, reduced to become a heroic pawn at the hands of Qosot Lhazang Khan, Tsangyang Gyatso became a legend within his short lifetime. Worshipped and loved by the Tibetan people with stainless faith, Tsangyang Gyathsho's song became famous in every corner of Tibet reviving once again the fascination of simple folk poetry.Printed Pages: 118. 103638

Good Governanace
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351280330; Hardcover; New; New; 
The subject of good governance is one that immediately inspires cynicism and hope because of its very nature and relevance. It is a critical prerequisite of participative and citizen centric-development that we all talk about. Detractors may dismiss it as cliché ridden; the fact however is, that governance is all around us and envelops our lives in a most profound manner. There is hardly any domain of daily life that is not touched by governance. It is a matter of concern that despite the efforts made so far good governance continues to suffer on various counts. Almost all aspects of civic life have adversely been influenced by lack of good governance. There are question marks on the moral fabric, politicians, administration and various other sections of the civil society. There is therefore, an urgent need to address these issues in wider societal interests. Good governance has emerged as the key area of theory, policy and practice and is seen as the foundation for a just and equitable social order. The apparently routine subject of Good Governance has received a most timely impetus from the University Grants Commission, by their sanctioning of Special Assistance Programme (SAP) to the Department of Public Administration, University of Lucknow, at a time when age old issues of governance are being revisited and immensely debated upon a regular basis by various stakeholders. The deliberations of the various Seminars / Workshops held under the Special Assistance Programme (SAP) have culminated in this book. About Author:- Prof. Kumkum Kishore Prof. Kumkum Kishore has over 23 years of experience in teaching, research and training. Currently working as Professor and Head, Department of Public Administration, University of Lucknow. She has completed research projects with focus on women and has published papers in reputed journals and books.

While the archaeological, historical and Architectural aspects of Indian Monuments can be said to have been studied to a greater extent, not much is known about their preservation work, otherwise known as the Structural conservation. The 'Conservation Manual' prepared by Sir John Marshal eight decades ago, was mainly intended to serve as a Hand Book to Conservators and do not deal with the subject of the Structural Conservation as a whole. The present book makes a Beginning to fill the gap.Structural conservation work involves a proper Diagnosis of the problem and taking remedial measures. For diagnosis, the conservator is expected to know the Anatomy of the monuments and also about their deterioration. In the first part of this book, the Construction methods of Buddhist Stupas, Hindu temples, and Islamic monuments are discussed based on site evidence from an Engineering point of view. Concealed parts like foundations, particularly of Hindu Temples get special attention. The trabeate technique, the dry stone masonry and the arcuate technique of Islamic structures are also examined in this book.Beginning with Climatic causes, the various causes contributing to the deterioration of Indian monuments are identified in a separate chapter. After tracing the evolution of conservation principles and discussing about the structural analysis, the various techniques used as a part of structural conservation work like grouting, etc. are furnished in the first part of this book.Seven case studies dealing with the structural conservation problems of an excavated site, a megalithic burial site, a Buddhist Stupa, a Rock-cut Monument, a temple, a tomb and a fort, all selected from Andhra Pradesh constitute the 2nd part of this book. The concluding chapter contains recommendations for better preservation of monuments. 110594

Temple and Society in South India
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8174791884; Hardcover; New; New; 
The temple is the focus for all aspects of everyday life in the Hindu community-religious, cultural, educational and social. It played many roles in society as place of worship, centre of learning, store house of state property, meeting place, court of justice, promoter of fine arts, etc. The temple also served as an agency for easier and more efficient extraction of surplus from the peasants in the agrarian economy and this contributed to the extension of agriculture. In the course of such extension the temples speed up the process of disintegration of tribal society and its reorganization as a caste society. In the newly formed caste society, the temple served as an integrating player linking the high and low in service. The temples maintained the morality of the society and religious faith of the people. The temples of medieval south India had been a great strengthening factor in keeping the people united and played a vital role as the centre of all social activities. The temples had given employment to a lot of people, as they needed people for the construction, maintenance and day to day function. They also employed the architects for the construction of temples, the artisans for the art and craft activities, sculptors and many servants for the engaging in various activities of the temple. The temples were also a place of religious conversation and musical discussions. All these have facilitated the propagation of religion, music, dance and other fine arts in the society.This edited volume contains 20 articles covers different aspects of South Indian Temple and Society, which include the following facets like: Power and Legitimacy of Medieval South Indian Temples; Role of Religion in the Chola State and Society; Science behind Temple Worship; Cultural Aspects of Hindu Temples; Administrators and other Functionaries of the Hindu Temples; Temple Women; Socio-political Dimension of Early Kerala Temples; Religious Endowments; Role of Temple in Agrarian Expansions; Socio-cultural Facets of Vijayanagar Temples; Social Customs and Festivals in the Temple Art of Vijayanagar-Nayak Period; Early Buddhist Temples in East Coast of South India; Folk Traditions of South India and other social and historical related aspects. The strength of this edited volume spotlight on the wide ranges of aspects on the subject as well as projections of the learned scholars on the theme of this book. It is hoped that the readers would be immensely benefitted from the learned exposition of temple institutions as a centre of all social, economic and cultural activities.Introduction Power and Legitimacy of Medieval South Indian Temples in the Society * Chidambaram Temple: Tracing the Role of Religion in the Chola State and Society * Science Behind Temple Worship * Cultural Aspects of Hindu Temples in Medieval Tamil Country * The Medieval Tamil Society and Temple Management * Administrators, Artisans and Servants: Temple’s Functionaries in Medieval South India * Temple and Earning Women in Medieval South India * Territories of the Divine: Temple Sanketams and Their Socio-political Dimensions in Early Kerala Society * Temple and Religious Endowments during the Pandyas * Horizontal Expansion of Temple Institutions and its Role to the Agrarian Changes: Study on Early Medieval South India * The Socio-cultural Facet of Temples with Reference to Vijayanagara Period * Social Customs and Festivals in the Temple Art of the Vijayanagara-Nayak Period in Tamilnadu * The Renowned Inscriptions of Sri Ninra Narayana Perumal Temple at Thiruttangal: A Historical Cram * Early Buddhist Temples in the East Coast of South India * Religious Status of Paraiyas in Medieval Hindu Tamilagam * Discourses on Policies of ‘Withdrawal’, ‘Non-Intervention’ and ‘Protection’ : A Colonial State’s Perspective on Hindu Religious Institutions in Madras Presidency * Migration: An Aspect of the Burden of Taxation under the Cholas * Villupattu Tradition: A Performing Art of Propitiation of Deities in Kanyakumari District * The Origins of Social Insurance for the Labouring Classes * Palm-Leaf Manuscripts of Tamil Nadu: A Panoramic View.

Changing Tribal Life in British Orissa
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8174790268; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book traces the British Government's policy towards the aboriginal people of Orissa, particularly the Kandhs, and the reaction it caused in the people. The study of the British tribal policy is worthwhile because the main problem faced by the administration then persists even today - the problem of how to improve tribal life without causing, as an inevitable outcome, progressive detribalisation; how to modernise tribal life with destroying in the process the distinctive features of tribal traditon and culture.Printed Pages: 163. 104237

Interrogating the Canon: Literature and Pedagogy of Dalits
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351281641; Hardcover; New; New; 
Interrogating the Canon: Literature and Pedagogy of Dalits is a collection of research articles written on different occasions primarily exploring the alternative histories of language and literature informed by the postcolonial thrust of interrogating the canon. Though varied in themes, the running thread of the articles has been critiquing the exclusivist nature of the literary establishment, and arguing a case for literary inclusion of the dalit writing. The thrust of the dalit writing being mainstreaming the marginal, the author of this book approaches the subject with a three pronged focus: underplaying the mainstream writing; exploring the politics of subordination and struggles for equality; and academicising the dalit writings. The articles in this collection will be of immense use to scholars, teachers and others working in the area.Printed Pages: 248. 106124

Cultivating Consciousness: An East-West Journey
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607176; First Edition; Hardcover; Nerw; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
Consciousness is the distinctive and defining future of human condition. Its study is at once fascinating and frustrating, because consciousness is too familiar to ignore and too complex and elusive to understand and explain. Many consider understanding consciousness the greatest challenge facing twenty-first-century science. Cultivating Consciousness is an absorbing East — West dialogue on the conceptual, methodical and theoretical issues. In this unique collection of scholarly articles by eminent researchers in and exponents of consciousness studies we find transdisciplinary discussions on the nature of consciousness, the methods of studying it, the relevance of consciousness to our values and its role in enhancing human potentials and wellness. Ramakrishna Rao discusses consciousness from the perspective of classical Indian thought in separate chapters devoted to Yoga, Advaita and Buddhism, and contrasts the Indian views with those in the West. Over all, the book gives the nature of things to come, the controversies and complexities involved and the imminent clash of paradigms. This volume is more than a study in contrast; it is an intellectual bridge that facilitates the travel and exchange between the spiritual and scientific traditions of East and West and between first-person and third-person perspectives.Printed Pages: 390. 100448

Handbook of Indian Psychology
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8175966025; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian psychology is a distinct psychological tradition rooted in the native Indian ethos. It manifests in the multitude of practices prevailing in the Indian subcontinent for centuries. Unlike the mainstream psychology Indian psychology is not overwhelmingly materialist-reductionist in character. It goes beyond the conventional thirdperson forms of observation to include the study of first-person phenomena such as subjective experience in its various manifestations and associated cognitive phenomena. It does not exclude the investigation of extraordinary states of consciousness and exceptional human abilities. The quintessence of Indian nature is its synthetic stance that results in a magical bridging of dichotomies such as natural and supernatural secular and sacred and transactional and transcendental. The result is a psychology that is practical positive holistic and inclusive. The Handbook of Indian Psychology is an attempt to explore the concepts methods and models of psychology systematically from the above perspective. The Handbook is the result of the collective efforts of more than thirty leading international scholars with interdisciplinary backgrounds. In thirty-one chapters the authors depict the nuances of classical Indian thought discuss their relevance to contemporary concerns and draw out the implications and applications for teaching research and practice of psychology.Printed Pages: 668. 101501

Panchayati Raj Experience in India
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351281917; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) have come to stay in India. Time has come to take stock of the experiences gained so far in the working of the PRIs in various states. Have we really achieved the goals set up by the 73rd constitutional Amendment while implementing the programme of 'democratic decentralisation'?, if not, what are the impediments in achieving the goals?. How best can we remove them based on our experience so far?. What corrective steps can we take to put the programme on the right track?. Here some of the leading experts on Panchayati Raj in various states examines the achievements and failures of working the PRIs during the past fifteen years. Concrete suggestions are put forth for making the PRIs vibrant institutions for bringing about democratic decentralization in the true-sense of the term. The scholarly papers on the 'state of art' of the PRIs in different states in India are presented systematically in this book. The articles broadly bring out the fascinating story of the working of PRIs in different states of India. Printed Pages: 344. 111015
