Jaina Relativism and Relativity Physics
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120838157; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Einstein's theory of relativity which appeared in the early twentieth century. Shook many fundamental concepts in physics such as space, time, mass, energy and gravitation. However, it led to many misconceptions. Lay persons often equated it with the concept of non-absolutism, relativity or relativism which is found in many philosophical systems.Unfortunately, the theory spawned many misconceptions. Lay persons asserted, "Everything is relative", "You can go back in time". Those who were familiar with the western as well as eastern philosophy of relativism or relativity or non absolutism claimed, "Our ancestors talked about relativity long back" or "Our forebears had anticipated Einstein long ago." Most of these misperceptions stem form the fact that Einstein uses the word "relativity" for his theory in physics. Undoubtedly there are many theories of philosohical relativity. They assert on-absolutism of knowledge. Most of these theories are idealist which deny objective cognition and content that human knowledge does not reflect the objective world.In Jaina relativism called anekantavada or syadvada one finds a rare combination of non absolutism and objectivity. Anekantavada is one of the main pillars of Jaina philosophy and religion. It believes in rationality, objectivity and like science relies on empirical evidence.Printed Pages: 171. 102028

The Mystique of Om (Second Edition)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8178222817; Second Edition; Softcover; New; 
Om is the most sacred mantra in major Indic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. It symbolizes affirmation, benediction and peace, and is used ritualistically in prayers, invocations and ceremonies, religious as well as secular. It is also a magical symbol beyond compare and is regarded as a vehicle of attaining liberation (moksha). Not only this, at the highest level, it is identified with Brahman, the Ultimate Reality. Using the Vedas, Upanishads, Yoga, Tantra and several religious texts as his sources, the author describes a plethora of interpretations of this mystical monosyllable which has since time immemorial captivated its worshipers, put yogis into trance, made Tantra practitioners ecstatic, and sent its changers into religious frenzy. The author also explains secular interpretations of Om in linguistics, psychology and structural analysis.Printed Pages: 192. 102094

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8120833430; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this book the author analyzes the concepts of sunya (zero), void, nothing and other similar notions found in various fields – mysticism, religion, philosophy, science and mathematics. This exploration reveals a strange but fascinating world of nothingness: a weird world with its mind-boggling contradictions and irrationalism conveying the central message of nihil, where one finds prophets and philosophers trying to harmonize contraries, non sequiturs and irreconciliables.Printed Pages: 311. 102208

Buddhist Logic and Quantum Dilemma
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8120835522; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Buddhism is a religion, but not a dogma. Its agnosticism and rational outlook has attracted many western scientists. There is abundant literature on similarities between Buddhism and Science. Two theories, relativity theory and quantum theory shook the very foundation of physics in the 20th century. Of the two, quantum theory reveals a truly mysterious sub-atomic world with its mind-boggling phenomena. For example, such entities as electrons, protons and photons (light particles)or waves as the occasion demands. This is called matter-wave duality. In Buddhist philosophy scholars have found a doctrine called catuskoti which is astonishingly similar to matter-wave duality. violate the Aristotelion laws of thought. The book analyzes two apparently contradictory parallels; (1) similarity between Buddhist philosophy and scientific thought, and (ii) resemblance between mystical catuskoti and mysterious matter-wave duality. The book also tries to dispel misconceptions harboured by lay persons about quantum theory.Printed Pages: 430. 102345

The World of Rhythm Called Rituals
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178223325; Softcover; New; 
When someone mentions rituals we usually think of religious rituals such as prayer, puja, marriage ceremonies, sermons and so on. However, if we introspect a little, we realize that we spend most of our life in performing rituals of one type or another. Most of our activities from morning till night are ritualistic. This book explains how rituals are closely connected with verse, music and dance. It asserts that like music and dance rituals belong to the world of rhythm. By ritual we mean any stylized behaviour that recurs. Rituals abound in all walks of life: social intercourse, military affairs, law and politics, education and so forth. In most rituals rhythm is manifest and loud. In a few rituals which have a slow tempo, some analysis is necessary to detect rhythmic patterns. The author beautifully portrays the types of rituals and the rhythms they generate from the babbling of a child to a band parade or the chanting of a mantra. He explains the initiation and completion of patterns that form the rhythm. This book shows that like music and dance, rituals belong to the world of rhythm. A discussion on ritual instinct is given at greater length. The book further proceeds to ‘Hermeneutics’ or the science of interpretation and explains rituals in their light. There are many technical words from music, dance and religion. These have been explained in the text. A glossary which can be used for ready reference has been provided. The notes which have been added after each chapter are meant for those who would like to know more about the relevant topic.Printed Pages: 164. 102496

14711 Jayant Burde; Foreword By Frits Staal
Rituals, Mantras and Science: An Integral Perspective
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8120820533; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 17 Cms x 25 Cms 
In this book the author discusses the place of science in rituals and mantras. Using structual analysis he shows that rituals in general, whether religious, political, social or otherwise have common structural patterns. These patterns are shared by poetry, music, dance and gymnastics, but not by language. Consideration of animal rituals and pathological (compulsive) rituals leads him to propose a general theory which unifies all ritual-like activities. He also introduces the concept of ritual instinct which can make the theory simpler and more elegant. He shows how knowledge can be divided into science, non-science and pseudo-science to understand the true status of such strange phenomena as miracles, supernatural powers, siddhis, samadhi, rebirth and ESP.

Facts and Speculations in Cosmology
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0521134242; First Edition; Paperback; New; 160 x 240 Mm 
A thought-provoking insight into the evolution of cosmology for undergraduate students and general readers, this book shows that the mystery of the origin of the universe is far from being solved. Cosmology has advanced over time through observational evidence as well as a lot of speculation. In this historical approach, the authors argue that the speculative element has become a dominant part of modern cosmology. They show how assumptions have been made and portrayed as confirmed facts. This unique book gives not only a critical assessment of the big bang theory, but presents a host of anomalous observations, and puts forward an alternative, controversial theory on the origin of the universe. A non-mathematical account, it contains analogies from everyday life so that readers can understand the concepts easily and follow the arguments presented. Contents 1. Ancient cosmologies 2. The Greek epicycles 3. Reaching out to the milky way 4. Our position in the galaxy 5. The world of galaxies 6. The expanding universe 7. Modelling the universe 8. What is the geometry of the universe like? 9. A universe without a beginning and without an end 10. The cosmological debate 1950-1965 11. The origin of the chemical elements 12. Cosmic microwave background 13. The very early universe 14. Dark matter and dark energy 15. An alternative cosmology 16. Unfaced challenges in cosmology 17. Epilogue.

Water, Ecosystems and Society: A Confluence of Disciplines
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817829933X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is an articulation of the much needed paradigm shift in the knowledge base for water systems management. It discusses the ecological and socio-economic dimensions of water, inclusion of which in sustainable and integrated water systems management has become essential the world over. It is path-breaking in terms of its conceptualisation since water management in India has traditionally been associated with the domain of engineering which tries to increase the quantity of water, to cater to increasing needs of human settlements and demands from irrigation and industry. This work, however, conceives water management as an interdisciplinary subject which needs to be understood not in terms of engineering alone, but in terms of its economic, sociological and, of course, ecological dimensions. Water, Ecosystems and Society: A Confluence of Disciplines is an excellent guide to interdisciplinary knowledge on water. It draws attention to ecological benefits of floods, economic productivity of water systems and the feasibility of the proposed river-link project of India. It focuses on the need to recognise ecosystem services provided by rivers as well as the necessity of environmental flows in such a system. The book deals with emerging areas of research, by connecting ecology, economics and water management. It will be a compelling read for academicians and students working in the fields of geography and environment science, development economics, environmental sociology, ecology, integrated water management, and so on.

India-Bangladesh Relations: Current Perspectives
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502649; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The importance of a thorough analysis of the current state of India-Bangladesh relations can hardly be exaggerated. Sceptics may observe that India can afford to remain indifferent to relationships with Bangladesh, whereas Bangladesh cannot do so vis-à-vis India. But realities do not admit of such skeptic oversimplification. With India’s northeast region remaining chronically unstable, and with count ries across this region, e.g. China and Myanmar, trying to improve their relations with Bangladesh (which itself provides a commercial gateway to India’s northeast region), India has to upgrade substantially its relations with Bangladesh in order to safeguard some of its vital interests. The necessity to strengthen the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) provides an additional impetus to the urgency of such upgradation. The disparity in the size and resources of India and Bangladesh are but a misleading indicator of the present importance of India-Bangladesh relations.Printed Pages: 104. 104379

Parliamentary Democracy in North East Indian
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351281610; Hardcover; New; New; 
As mentioned in the beginning of the “Acknowledgement”, I found a general absence of political sense in the tribes of North-east India when I was conducting extensive and intensive field study to understand the socio-cultural characteristics of the Buddhist tribes of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim. (I had earlier studied a similar aspect amongst the Tibetans in India—both refugees and traditional settlers, who had come as traders many centuries back and become Indian citizens). These tribal communities are vehemently conscious of their language, culture and way of life and their “politics” is fighting for those basic rights from both the State governments and the Government of India. We are fully aware of the long-term struggle of the Bodos and the Karbis of Assam. They, unlike the Ahoms or the Bengalis or any other language group of India, are least bothered about problems of India as such, not even if and when Pakistan or China attacks India! They only want their very special identity established. I took up Meghalaya and Sikkim out of the seven sisters of the North-east because their political systems and the awareness amongst the electors and the elected both appeared diametrically opposite! There was no Opposition in Sikkim Assembly (till the recent 2014 election) and no single majority party (again till the recent election) in Meghalaya! The government was of coalition and the Opposition too, was of coalition! In Sikkim the voters appeared so very fully contended with Pawan Chamling as the Chief Minister that they could not think of any other party other than SDF. The deep anti-Congressism (which had sprung up due to Congress Party's role in annexing Sikkim to the Indian Union when the common people were quite contended with the utterly benevolent monarch) had also made Sikkim Democratic Front utterly popular. In Meghalaya no party or no leader appeared to be above board thus leaving the voters totally confused. So, they mostly voted for the leader they personally liked ! There was no political consideration. The vote-seekers too, had no specific or attractive agenda that could possibly mobilize the voters successfully. They were unhappy with whichever coalition that came to power without realizing that too many cooks spoil the broth! They lacked the political sense to realize that a steady government can possibly indulge into some developmental activity. The parties and the leaders too, had no specific manifesto. Thus parliamentary type of democracy was missing in all the States I studied. It is for my readers to find out where they went wrong and where I went wrong!.Printed Pages: 282. 106126

A success story of national pride and achievement, Silver Lining is told most engagingly by a civil servant whose experiences in Gujarat deserve to be widely known. Jayanti Ravi is not only an observer but an active participant in this theatre of higher education where motives and methods meet several lives to enrich them amid numerous challenges and privations. True learning, argues Ravi, begins when we learn to read the world rather than the word, instances of which she cites and celebrates in these pages. Above all, non-formal education has had very few committed votaries, a regrettable shortcoming Ravi’s pages will certainly redress/ overcome.Printed Pages: 95. 101906

European Union in Changing International Order
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8174791221; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
European Union (EU) is presumably a major player in the world. The developments within the EU and its external postures have theoretical implications and apparent consequences to the rest of the world. The integration process touching the core areas of nation states has prompted a relook into our hitherto-held notions on political categories. This process has invoked a mixed response on the future of Europe, including questions about its identity and the loyalty of its people as well as the further expansion of EU to include Turkey. The neo-liberal economic policies of EU which were not articulated in clear terms earlier have now become quite assertive and have a significant bearing on its interaction with other sovereign countries. EU's `strategic partnerships' and relations with major countries of the world as well as its increasing role in conflict areas signifies the emergence of EU as a global political actor. These multi-faceted developments invariably make EU a curious entity. The thirteen essays by Indian and European scholars presented in this volume critically debate and examine the implications of EU as a global actor. These essays analyse the future of EU and the Euro in the backdrop of the current economic crisis and debate on the admission of Turkey. The external priorities of EU and its linkages and perspectives towards China, South Asia, and in particular, India are evaluated in the light of recent developments.Printed Pages: 335. 104139

Intellectual Property Rights in the WTO and Developing Countries
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0195661702; Softcover; New; 
Although it is common knowledge that the compliance of developing countries with the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) has become a serious stumbling block in the WTO agenda, the underlying reasons why this is so have not been dispassionately analyzed until the appearance of this book. Here, for the first time, is a thorough and secure foundation on which international trade lawyers and business people can build a global intellectual property regime that is both productive and fair. The implementation of the TRIPS regime with its enormous effect on national and global strategies for healthcare, agriculture, and the environment, among other crucial sectors of the world economy is clearly among the most critical projects currently under way in the field of international relations. As a former TRIPS negotiator for India, Jayashree Watal brings great authority to her account of the benefits and pitfalls of TRIPS compliance for developing countries. She provides a detailed understanding of how TRIPS was negotiated at the Uruguay Round, how various countries have implemented it so far, and how the WTO monitors compliance. She reveals how the WTO dispute settlement process has worked to date in matters involving TRIPS, and how it is likely to deal with new issues that arise. Most importantly, she explains how developing countries can interpret TRIPS to their best advantage, and how to ensure that the `constructive ambiguity` that characterizes the agreement remains flexible. 108864

Epic Sciences in Indian Plastic Art
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170172284; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"The immortal epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, are the cherished and prized heritage of Indian culture. The idealized versions of Rama and Krishna narrated in the two epics and the Bhagwat Purana, the episodes and characters described in them have sunk deep into the psyche of every Indian. Like Buddhism, which provided inspiring themes to the Indian artist, the epics too inspired the Indian sculptor to execute his artistic creations in stone, stucco and terracotta in rock caves and temples all over the subcontinent. The artistic depiction of the epic themes in different ages and regions testifies to the universal and ever-lasting popularity of the epics with the Indian artists. In spite of the gap of centuries between the Gupta period and the medieval period, the core values and the personality of the ideal or semi-miraculous personages depicted in the Indian sculpture remain changeless. 108009

The Jewel Ornament of Liberation: The Wish-fulfilling Gem of the Noble Teachings
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120836987; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This is not just a text for beginners, but one of the primary Kagyu texts and of immense relevance and benefit to all practitioners regardless of what stage they are at. In addition to providing a step-by-step outline of the path to Buddhahood, the teachings on the innate Buddha nature can provide students with the confidence to enter the path, while those already on the path can find in its twenty-one chapters much to inspire and keep them moving along the unmistaken path of liberation. Often texts such as this with their vast scope are in parts necessarily quite pithy. Therefore, to gain clear understanding it is traditional to receive thorough commentaries on these aspects. However, due to their great length detailed explanations are quite extensive and thus can be difficult to receive. Yet, here we have the great blessings of a complete commentary by the great contemporary Kagyu master Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche in which he gives a detailed explanation of this text. "Here are presented talks by the unequaled spiritual friend, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche. These talks are especially wonderful in presenting the teachings so that they are easily understood and their meaning realized. It is said that if one practices the profound Dharma given here, now and in the future, one will become truly joyful." - The Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje.Printed Pages: 453. 102376

Language Change: Progress or Decay?
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2001; 0521795354; Third Edition; Paperback; New; 198 x 129 Mm 
This is a lucid and up-to-date overview of language change. It discusses where our evidence about language change comes from, how and why changes happen, and how languages begin and end. It considers both changes which occurred long ago, and those currently in progress. It does this within the framework of one central question - is language change a symptom of progress or decay? It concludes that language is neither progressing nor decaying, but that an understanding of the factors surrounding change is essential for anyone concerned about language alteration. For this substantially revised third edition, Jean Aitchison has included two new chapters on change of meaning and grammaticalization. Sections on new methods of reconstruction and ongoing chain shifts in Britain and America have also been added as well as over 150 new references. The work remains non-technical in style and accessible to readers with no previous knowledge of linguistics. • Lucid and up-to-date overview of language change • Third edition of this bestselling textbook is substantially revised and includes two new chapters • Non-technical in style and accessible to the reader with no previous knowledge of linguistics Contents Part I.

The Seeds of Speech: Language Origin and Evolution
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2000; 0521785715; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Human language is a weird communication system: it has more in common with birdsong than with the calls of other primates. In this wide-ranging and accessible overview, Jean Aitchison explores the origins of human language and how it has evolved. She likens the search to a vast pre-historic jigsaw puzzle, in which numerous fragments of evidence must be assembled. Such evidence is pieced together from a mixture of linguistic and non-linguistic sources like evolution theory, archaeology, psychology, and anthropology. She explains why language is so strange, outlines recent theories about its origin, and discusses possible paths of evolution. Finally, Jean Aitchison considers what holds all languages together and prevents them from becoming unlearnably different from one another. The Seeds of Speech is a fascinating book that will appeal to everyone who is interested in the origins and evolution of human language, including linguists, anthropologists, psychologists, archaeologists, and the general reader. Contents Preface; Part I. Puzzles: 1. A natural curiosity: how did language begin?; 2. A peculiar habit: what is language for?; 3. The bother at Babel: why do languages differ so much?; 4. Distinct duties: is language an independent skill?; Part II. Origin: 5. The family tree: the evolutionary background; 6. A devious mind: the basic requirements; 7. Broken air: inherited ingredients; 8. Small beginnings: first steps; Part III. Evolution: 9. The secong word: the emergence of rules; 10. The tower of speech: expansion; 11. Time travelling: extra attachments; 12. Rebuilding on the high seas: keeping going; Part IV. Diffusion: 13. The widening circle: moving outwards; 14. The hidden core: the hunt for universals; 15. The real magician: ruling the rules; 16. Unweaving the rainbow: separating the strands; 17.

Tocqueville in India (French Writings on India and South Asia)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383166022; Hardcover; New; New; 
India has always been a land of contrasts and marvels. Today it contrives to be a functioning democracy in the midst of a society that remains inherently hierarchical. In order to grasp this paradox in all its dimensions, Jean Alphonse Bernard resolved to revisit the realities of India now in the company of Alexis de Tocqueville ( 1805-59). Tocqueville in India explores the enduring dialogue between the State and Society. Following neither Fukuyama nor Huntingdon, this book should attract the attention of those concerned by Indian issues as well as every reader interested in political philosophy or world affairs.Printed Pages: 260. 101994

Ancient Fortifications of the Tamil Country as Recorded in Eighteenth-Century French Plans (Collection Indologie: 120)
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8184701934; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
"" Today, very few Indians know that, in the eighteenth century, the southern part of the peninsula was richly studded with fortifications, great and small, as most of them were dismantled by the British at the beginning of the nineteenth century. These strongholds, some of which had considerable administrative or political importance, were once crowded with large bodies of troops and resounded to the blaring noise of the guns; now they are completely abandoned and silent. In addition to this, temples, edifices dedicated to the service of gods, were also used as forts, though no vestiges of military structures are found around their enclosures today. Fortunately, eighteenth-century French engineers have drawn the plans of several of these defence works. These magnificent watercolour plans preserved in the French Archives are presented here: they illustrate in an extraordinarily precise and explicit manner the technological level of the South Indian fortifications and enable us to comprehend the role they played in the life of the Tamil Country.

Social Policy
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 812506284X; First Edition; Softcover; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The reach of social policy in India has expanded significantly in recent years. Facilities such as schools and anganwadis (child care centres) have become an accepted norm for every village; health centres are more accessible and better equipped; nutrition programmes, public works and social security pensions are reaching larger numbers of people than before. Some of these benefits now take the form of enforceable legal entitlements.Yet the performance of these social programmes is far from ideal. Most Indian states still have a long way to go in putting in place effective social policies that directly address the interests, demands and rights of the unprivileged.Social Policy is a collection of essays, previously published in the Economic and Political Weekly, on these and related issues. The 24 chapters have been clustered around six major themes: ‘health’, ‘education’, ‘food security’, ‘employment guarantee’, ‘pensions and cash transfers’ and ‘inequality and social exclusion’. For the first time, wide-ranging analyses of these critical issues by distinguished scholars are brought together in a single volume. The wealth of data presented in these studies will be invaluable to researchers in this field.With an introduction by Jean Drèze, Social Policy will be an indispensible read for students and scholars of sociology, economics, political science and development studies.

India - Development and Participation
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195678575; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
India's economy over the last decade looks in many ways like a success story after a major economic crisis in 19 91, followed by bold reform measures, the economy has experienced a rapid economic growth rate, more foreign investment, and a boom in the information technology sector. Yet many in the country still suffer from crushing poverty, and social and political unrest remains a problem. These essays by leading academics, policymakers, and industrialists examine India's recent economic sucesses and their social and cultural context. India's rate of economic growth after the 1991 reforms were instituted reached a remarkable 7 percent for three consecutive years, from 1994 to 1997. Several contributors to the volume ask what this means for the nation as a whole. In his essay 'Democracy and Secularism in India', Amartya Sen argues that economic progress is not the only way to measure a nation's performance. Other contributors examine the actual effect India's economic growth has had on reducing poverty and recommend policies to empower the poor. 033683

An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions
Allen Lane: An Imprint of Penguin Books; London, UK; 2013; 1846147611; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
After two centuries of imperialism and colonial subjugation India attained its Independence in 1947. And in its attempt to earn the freedom of its people, the founding fathers adopted a firm and fair system of democracy to usher in a new chapter in the history of India. The economists place their argument in the period that lay hereafter and the basic flaws in the Indian system. They stress on the attention needed for the marginalized if there is a view to sustain growth and lead the development trajectory into a more dominant position. An Uncertain Glory: India And Its Contradictions explicates the progress of the nation as it overcame the economic lag to earning a growth rate that soon made it the second fastest growing economy in the world. For Dreze and Sen the focus however lies elsewhere and it is in determining the essential needs of the people and bridging the gap of opportunities that they believe there is a chance for India to cash in its true realization of freedom. They discuss the deep inequalities that are entrenched in the Indian system and how the resulting failure to develop human capabilities is stunting its growth. In another vein the economists believe the importance of sustainable growth that is also environmentally conscious and in that respect they lay out the failures of the economy to develop their backbone of infrastructure adequately. The incompetent tackling of public resources that has accrued to India’s phenomenal growth in developing social services and infrastructure is a major concern for the economists. They believe that the quality of life in India is the major concern and therefore the needs and social deprivations of the majority of the people who are among the lower rungs are of priority basis and need to be addressed. The authors lay out a premise for a stronger democratic ethic that concentrates on these neglected corners of Indian policy in this enlightening treatise. Printed Pages: 448. 037560

The Monk and the Philosopher
Penguin/TBI; New Delhi, India; 0805211039; Softcover; New; 
Jean Francois-Revel, a pillar of French intellectual life in our time, became world famous for his challenges to both Communism and Christianity. Twenty-seven years ago, his son, Matthieu Ricard, gave up a promising career as a scientist to study Tibetan Buddhism — not as a detached observer but by immersing himself in its practice under the guidance of its greatest living masters.Meeting in an inn overlooking Katmandu, these two profoundly thoughtful men explored the questions that have occupied humankind throughout its history. Does life have meaning? What is consciousness? Is man free? What is the value of scientific and material progress? Why is there suffering, war, and hatred? Their conversation is not merely abstract: they ask each other questions about ethics, rights, and responsibilities, about knowledge and belief, and they discuss frankly the differences in the way each has tried to make sense of his life.Utterly absorbing, inspiring, and accessible, this remarkable dialogue engages East with West, ideas with life, and science with the humanities, providing wisdom on how to enrich the way we live our lives.

The Indo-Europeans
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1994; 2950894003; Softcover; New; 
We cannot speak of the Indo-Europeans in the same way as one speaks of the Greeks or the Romans, since we possess nothing written by them; for this reason, no site, monument or object can be attributed to them without previous discussion. To begin with, the existence of the ndo-Europeans is not a datum but a second-degree hypothesis. The first hypothesis is that of an Indo-European language. This is the only hypothesis to take into account the multitude of complex and precise correspondences which have been observed in the grammar and vocabulary of most European and a number of Asian languages. The plan of the present study was dictated by no less than its subject. It proceeds from the most immediate data, those of the language and the formulary, to conjectures oncerning location in space and time. The reminder rests on linguistic palaeontology and ìnew comparative mythologyî. It is hoped that these different approaches, ometimes viewed as mutually contradictory, will be seen to meet up with and complement each other.Printed Pages: 165. 102523

Jean-Baptiste Tavernier's Travels in India contains the details of his journeys that he undertook traversing the greater part of this country. Rightly considered as one of the most renowned travellers of the seventeenth century, his Travels, like those of other European travellers, are an important source-book for the history of India of the seventeenth century. An avid traveller, Tavernier undertook seven voyages to the East of which six brought him to India including Ceylon and South-East Asia between the years 1641 and 1667 and is thus an important source material for the history of Mughal India and Deccan Sultanates. A jeweller by profession, he also undertook journeys to various mines and other sources of precious stones. The present volume of Tavernier's Travels in India has been translated by Valentine Ball and the present edition has been edited by William Crooke. A detailed life-sketch of Tavernier apart, this edition also contains a detailed Bibliography, Notes on Tavernier's History and Geography, six Appendices in which are respectively discussed the Koh-i-nur, list of diamond mines in India, the diamond mines of Bengal, the diamond mines of Boraeo, the ruby mines of Burma and the Sapphire of Washings of Ceylon and two early works by foreign travellers, and a detailed Index and Glossary. An important source-book, Travels in India is an indispensable work for all those interested in various facets of life during the times of the Mughals.

Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 2004; 9004138358; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; 16.5 x 25 Cm 
New Bon promises to become an important focus of interest among academic Tibetologists in the coming years. This unique, first-ever English-language volume on Tibet’s New Bon religion (14th century onwards) contains the full catalogue of the collected rediscovered teachings revealed by bDe chen gling pa, an important Bon po master of the second part of the 19th century in Eastern Tibet. Belonging to a later period of development within the various lineages of New Bon, bDe chen gling stands as an essential link between this tradition and that of the Ris med movement of the late 19th century. The annotated catalogue of the thirteen volume collection mostly covers tantric and rDzogs chen (Great Perfection) texts barely known outside native libraries. Printed Pages: 328. 012663

The Six Lamps: Secret Dzogchen Instructions of the Bön Tradition
Wisdom/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2017; 1614293643; Softcover; New; 
The Instructions on the Six Lamps is a profound and important work from the Bön Dzogchen tradition and is one of the root texts of the Zhangzhung Nyengyü (Oral Transmission of Zhangzhung) series of orally transmitted teachings. Considered to be the central work of the inner cycle of these teachings, it expertly details the principles of the natural state and its visionary marvels. The root text describes highly secret precepts of Dzogchen (Great Perfection) practice—the teachings of Trekchö and Thögel—as revealed by Tapihritsa to Gyerpung Nangzher Löpo. The teachings in this text represent oral instructions transmitted by a single master to a single disciple in the mode known as “single transmission.” It is through such a practice that one can see the clear light of one’s own mind before achieving complete buddhahood. In this respect, the text contains a complete teaching of Dzogchen, from beginning to end. Printed Pages: 240. 112656

Inequality, Cooperation, and Environmental Sustainability
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195691601; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Would improving the economic, social, and political condition of the world’s disadvantaged people slow or accelerate environmental degradation? Leading social scientists in this volume provide answers to this difficult question, using new research on the impact of inequality on environmental sustainability. The contributors’ findings suggest that inequality may exacerbate environmental problems by making it more difficult for individuals, groups, and nations to cooperate in the design and enforcement of measures to protect natural assets ranging from local commons to the global climate. But a more equal division of a given amount of income could speed the process of environmental degradation. The contributors also find that the effect of inequality on cooperation and environmental sustainability depends critically on the economic and political institutions governing how people interact and the technical nature of the environmental asset in question. They focus on the local commons because many of the world’s poorest depend on them for their livelihoods, and recent research has made great strides in showing how private incentives, group governance, and government policies might combine to protect these resources. 019941

Chitra: Cities and Monuments of Eighteenth-Century India from French Archives
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0195657314; First Edition; Paperback; New; 28 Cms x 23 Cms 
Among the several European peoples who had early contacts with India, the French occupied a special position. Recent research by French and Indian scholars has revealed many new aspects of the interaction that took place between France and India during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Libraries and archives in France contain rich and as yet unpublished documentation on the subject. In this book Jean-Marie Lafont brings together for the first time a collection of drawings and maps of cities and monuments in eighteenth-century India. The fifty colour illustrations of plans and views of palaces, cities and monuments by French and Indian architects and engineers published here are drawn from the Centre des Archives d'Outre-Mer, Archives Nationales and the Gentil Album of Palais Indiens at the Bibliothque Nationale, Paris.
