15301 Julius Jolly (author), C.G. Kashikar (tr.) & J. Filliozat (frwd)
Indian Medicine
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121502683; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The present work aims at an orderly, and at the same time historical treatment of the Ayurvedic system of medicine. It is an English rendering of Julius Jolly's Medizin in German originally published in 1901, and supplemented by the translator with bibliography and notes covering the literary activity in the field during the next fifty years. It deals with sources, Physicians and Therapy, Theoretical conceptions, Theory of Development and Gynaecology, Internal and External Diseases, Diseases of the Head, Nervous and Mental Diseases and Toxicology. The book is a model of critical research condensed with the utmost brevity of words without omitting any important detail of fact or text bearing on the history of Indian Medicine. A historical approach as has been made in writing this book is a dire necessity for Ayurvedic research work?both literary and practical. The history of Ayurveda indeed claims a better position in the general history of Medicine. The conceptions of the Physicians of ancient India have played a great role in the general culture of India and have entered in many Philosophical doctrines as the basic elements. The Indian Medicine has played in Asia the same role as the Greek Medicine in the West. It has spread in Indo-China, Indonesia, Tibet, Central Asia and Japan exactly as the Greek Medicine has done in Europe and the Arab countries. It was studied by the Greeks, the Arabs, the Portuguese and the Dutch, and in the nineteenth century it secured a place in the scientific literature of Europe. Thus the study of Indian Medicine has taken its place in the classical Science. Through the progress of historical studies it has become possible to consider with greater precision the correspondence of Indian Medicine with those of Greek, Iran, Islam and China. Pharmacological value of Ayurvedic drugs has also been fixed. On this background the study of Indian Medicine presented in this book will be profitable for a deeper understanding of the history of Medicine in general and of Indian Medicine in particular.

15309 Junjiro Takakusu
The Essentials of Buddhist Philosophy; Edited By Wing-Tsit Chan and Charles A. Moore
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121510368; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 23 Cms 
This book deals with the various schools of Buddhist philosophy and is based on the first hand and deep study and understanding of the learned writer scholar. The author has chosen to describe and discuss the various schools of Buddhist thought in Japan since it is only there that these are alive and fully preserved. This volume, grew our of a series of lectures delivered by Professor Takakusu at the University of Hawaii, covers the entire gamut of Buddhist thought included in the doctrines of both Hinayana and Mahayana schools. In the fifteen chapters, Professor Takakusu has discussed in detail the development of Buddhist thought besides an introduction, Indian background and the fundamental principles of Buddhist philosophy. He has mainly elaborated the subject matter in an ideological rather than the historical sequence and give a brilliant resume of different schools of Buddhism. In the concluding chapter, the metaphysical and dialectical questions of Buddhism have been discussed besides the general problems of philosophy and special doctrines. This outstanding work fulfils the task as an important technical secondary literature on the subject and would be extremely useful both for the scholar and interested lay reader.

15310 Junjiro Takakusu & Charles A. Moore
The Essentials of Buddhist Philosophy
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120804295; Fourth Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
Buddhism had already spread far into other countries before it declined in India in the eleventh century A.D. Hinayana flourished in Ceylone, Burma, Siam and Cambodia; Mystic Buddhism developed in Tibet; Mahayana grew in China. In Japan the whole of Buddhism became the living and active faith of the masses. The present study relates to Japanese Buddhism, as in Japan alone the whole of Buddhism is preserved. The author presents Buddhist Philosophy in an ideological sequence and not in its historical sequence as Prof. Stcherbatsky has done in his Buddhist logic. But the ideological sequence as presented by the author is not the sequence in the development of ideas; it is rather the systematization of the different schools of thought for the purpose of easier approach.Printed Pages: 244. 102357

Teos on kattava suomenkielinen esitys Euroopan vanhimman instituution, paaviuden historiasta. Tutkimus auttaa lukijaa ymmärtämään kuinka katolinen kirkko ja paavius ovat kehittyneet nykyiseen muotoonsa ja minkälaiset haasteet niitä odottavat lähitulevaisuudessa. Kirjan temaattisessa osiossa syvennytään tarkemmin joihinkin kiinnostaviin teemoihin, kuten paaviuden suhteisiin juutalaisiin, konklaavien historiaan, katolisen kirkon hallintoon sekä paavien rooliin taiteiden ja tieteiden edistäjinä kristinuskon alkuajoista nykypäivään.

Kirkko, kuri ja Koulutus: Hengellisen säädyn moraalihistoriaa Myöhäiskeskiajalla
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2004; 9517465823; New; 
Kirkko, kuri ja koulutus käsittelee papiston ja luostariväen moraalihistoriaa myöhäiskeskiajan Euroopassa. Tutkimus keskittyy kahteen erityisteemaan: papiston oppineisuuteen sekä luostarielämän valo- ja varjopuoliin. Aikaisempi tutkimus on antanut molemmista teemoista varsin värittyneitä, ellei jopa vääristyneitä, tulkintoja. Yleisen käsityksen mukaan keskiajan papisto oli oppimatonta ja pystyi hädin tuskin ulkoa lukemaan messun ymmärtämättä sen sisällöstä mitään. Luostariväkeä on puolestaan perinteisesti kuvattu ahneena ja löyhämoraalisena. Printed Pages: 252. 114651

These lean chapters clear the field of mental clutter and grandiose verbosity and leave only room for the reader’s actual adventure into meditation. Dr. O’Brien invites the reader to explore his or her own uncanny instrument – mind – that enables one to live and think. Then he shows us how to go beyond it, into the hidden source that holds the primordial power of our real self. 109924

Water Design: Environment and Histories
The Marg Foundation; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789383243143; Hardcover; New; New; 25 x 32 Cm 
Much can be learnt from India’s rich systems of harvesting and distributing rainwater and groundwater through a variety of architecture, some of which are engineering and aesthetic marvels. The essays here, written by specialists from around the world, adopt an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, bringing together older research and new findings. They look at the structural and aesthetic figurations of waterscapes and reveal how these fit within a larger cultural and spiritual worldview. The monuments discussed span a host of regions and are viewed from various perspectives: How were their artistic and ornamental characteristics related to the prevailing local practices of a particular region? What were the hydro-technical skills that went into these creations? What was their connection to their surrounding rural or urban topography? How did they become ritual sites and markers of social segregation or integration? In present times, when climate change and water conservation are among the most pressing issues, this book is particularly relevant in drawing attention to historical models that could provide valuable insight and inspiration for future solutions.

The Tenth Unknown
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8189738976; Softcover; New; 
‘Borders change, kingdoms, empires and even entire civilizations rise and fall. You will see the entire history of humanity as a tapestry and not be wavered by the prevalent political scenario, no matter how bleak it is. You will never pledge your loyalties to any kingdom or empire. Your loyalties will always lie with humanity and you must always use this knowledge for the greater good and never for personal or political gain. The greed inherent in every human being will tempt you to do otherwise, but the presence of the other eight will help keep you in check. You have been chosen because I believe you to be the finest men and women of my empire. Finally, you shall never reveal your existence to the outside world. You shall call yourselves “The Nine Unknowns”.Printed Pages: 288. 106558

Enclosed Waters: Property Rights, Technology and Ecology in the Management of Water Resources in Palakkad, Kerala
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 812503692X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Enclosed Waters looks into the social and ecological factors that have given rise to the persistent problem of water scarcity in the paddy-growing regions of Chittur taluk in Palakkad district, Kerala, South India. The book views water scarcity as an outcome of the existing unsustainable and inequitable mode of water resources management and distribution. It critiques the single-crop-focused irrigation and agricultural policies of the state since the 1960s to the neglect of local specificities. It studies the impact of supply oriented, large-scale canal projects and inter-basin transfers of water on the management of local water sources, primarily the ponds (kulams) of the area. Jyothi Krishnan observes how the current policy emphasis of the decentralisation agenda of the state on local level water resources has approached the issue of sustainable water management. The book further illustrates how the implementation of land reforms in the state has resulted in an inequitable distribution of rights to water. It also discusses how increasing private control over water abrogates public and common rights, resulting in both unsustainable and inequitable use and distribution. Reviewing the creation of public and private rights over a fluid and common pool resource such as water, Krishnan argues that issues of ecological sustainability should be central to the framing of property rights. She suggests that the recurring problem of water scarcity necessitates a thorough reconsideration of existing irrigation and agricultural policies as well as a rethinking on the formulation of the existing property rights over land and water. Meticulously researched in the library and field, Krishnan’s book aligns property rights, technology and ecology in fascinatingly thoughtful ways. Printed Pages: 332. 031467

With its old castles and lakes, its intricate interior decorations and rich desert colours, its plush palaces and royal aura, Jaipur occupies a stronghold on the Indian tourist map. It is Rajasthan's most flamboyant city and boasts of a martial heritage like none other. Ruled over by the valiant and hardy Rajputs, Jaipur has seen and survived brutal history, including changes from the Mughal to the English, and finally, Indian rule. Its tradition of valour is surpassed only by its reputation as an unchallenged manufacturing-cum-marketing centre for all that is exotic and exquisite in Indian art: jewellery, gem stones, miniature paintings and enamelled objets d'art. Founded in the eighteenth century, it is also showcases architecture's grand theme. The scale of its many forts evokes an era that made space for life, passion and war; their walls echoing the danger-frought, chivalrous and whimsical lives of its royals.

The Jaina Sources of the History of Ancient India (100 BC-AD 900)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8121511402; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The contribution of the Jaina sources to the making of the history of our great nation, during the epoch-making millennium of 100 BC to AD 900, is of vital importance. But it has only lacked proper research and application. This book presents a brief survey of the more important sources, particularly literary ones, and a discussion of certain fundamental problems such as the dates of Mahavira and of the beginning of the Earlier Saka, Vikrama, and Saka eras, as well as the dates of important Jaina authors and their works and thus clears much of the fog that masks Indian chronology, both political and cultural.

Sexual States: Governance and the Struggle to Decriminalize Homosexuality in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 812506236X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code is one among the large and complex system of laws, policies, and practices aimed at mitigating the threat of homosexuality. This statute endangers a range of subjects, including religious minorities, who are troublingly considered prone to same-sex behavior.In Sexual States, Jyoti Puri tracks the efforts to decriminalize homosexuality and to show that the regulation of sexuality is fundamentally tied to the enduring existence of the state in order to understand how Section 377 is governed. Through extensive fieldwork among state institutions, she finds that the law and state agencies such as the police are pre-occupied with managing sexuality and its perceived threat to the social order. Equally interested in efforts to modify Section 377, this book draws on encounters with sexuality rights activists to highlight the approaches and strategies that have evolved over the course of their struggle.Sexual States also discusses the shutting down of dance bars, modifications in rape laws, and efforts to curtail migration from Bangladesh to show that regulating sexuality more generally helps uphold regional and national states as inevitable, legitimate, and indispensable. By highlighting the heterogeneous sexual states in the Indian context, Puri provides a framework to understand the links between sexuality and the state. This book will be of significant interest to scholars and students of sexuality and gender studies, sociology, anthropology, political science, and legal studies. Printed Pages: 232. 108403

Tilak and Gandhi perspectives Religion and Politics seeks to examine and explain the curious and Importance nexus between religion and politics in the light of the Political Philosophies of Tilak and Gandhi. The choice of Lokmanya and Mahatma from a constellation of Famous Personalities of the Indian freedom Movement draws on an undisputable fact of their popularity and immense capacity for mobilization than any one else. It was Tilak and then Gandhi who stirred the masses and brought in a new awareness that pushed the Society forward.Tilak spoke the Idiom of the masses, explaining the significance of political action in Hindu Philosophical terms as a Sacred Dharma or claimed by God to fight the Alien ruler. No wonder, Tilak was dubbed as the "father of the Indian unrest". Contrarily, Gandhi 'the Father of the nation' declared his Hinduism included all that he knew to be best in Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and Zoroastrianism. Exhibiting moral courage, he strone for Hindu-Muslim unity, convenienced that ultimately both Religions were true and valid and were complimentary to each other.Printed Pages: 590. 106034

One Master, One Disciple: A Thrilling Spiritual Adventure
Yogi Impressions Books Pvt. Ltd.; Mumbai, India; 2015; 8188479608; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
A fun-loving child, Jyotii is a bright spark who absorbs deliberations on the Bhagavad Gita, recites mantras in Sanskrit, and performs yoga asanas with ease. Growing into a restless young woman, she tries her hand at just about everything from Crystals to Reiki to Magnified Healing to dancing around sacred fires in Shamanic rites. She`s been there, done that. But, little does she know that a guided meditation technique which she is about to practice at a seminar, will show her a vision of the master who will propel her on a fast-track evolutionary path.Initiated into Kriya Yoga by Gurunath, a disciple blessed by Mahavatar Shiv Gorakshanath Babaji, her spiritual awakening occurs in flashes of revelations about her past lives in various cultures, across several centuries. She sees how she has remained connected to her present husband in all these lives – as a mother, a cousin, a friend. She is nurtured and gains strength from the radiant energy of an old tree; ancient masters and yogis appear to her by a lakeside, and her daily existence is filled with paranormal experiences.Jyotii evolves not only as a spiritual seeker and a teacher of Hamsa Yoga but also as a more balanced human being who is able to meet, and help others meet, every adversity with courage, equanimity and grace.Along this roller-coaster ride that takes you through the cosmos, giving you glimpses of several realms of existence, one link remains intact and steadfast – the link that binds the true guru and the true disciple.Printed Pages: 188. 103499

The Rgvedic Deities and Their Iconic Forms
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1990; 8121500826; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
India's cultural traditions have their origin in diverse sources embedded in the life style of various pre- and proto-historic communities occupying different parts of the sub-continent in the various periods of their existence. Despite high antiquity of several archaeological finds, one has to admit that the earliest recorded references of India's cultural philosophy and ideological concepts are found only in the textual data of Rgveda, which show an already developed stage of thought. The importance of Vedic philosophy and religious concepts especially those defining the form of divinities lies in the fact that they preserve in them the seeds of later Hinduism to a considerable extent. The Rgveda contains references to various types of divinities which have been classified into three broad groups viz., (i) Terrestrial deities like Prithvi, Soma, Agni, (ii) Atmospheric gods like Indra, Vayu, Maruts, Parjanya, and (iii) Heavenly divinities like Varuna, Dyaus, Asvins, Surya, Savitr, Mitra, Pusana and Visnu. Of these last five were regarded as different phases of sun's movements. Varuna, who has been extolled in many hymns, is also associated with the concept of Rta, i.e. the cosmic and moral order. The Rgveda mentions some goddess too like Prthivi, Usas or the dawn, ratri, Ila Bharati or Sarasvati. A few gods like Dyava-Prthivi (i.e. the sky and the earth) are vitally significant for later iconographic development. To propitiate these gods the Rgvedic people made offerings of milk, ghee grains, etc. through sacrificial oblations and chanted hymns in their praise which, undoubtedly, suggest presence of the elements of Bhakti (deep devotional urge) in the Vedic religion. The present work is conditioned by a kind of unconventional approach to the study of Vedic elements of iconic forms and concepts especially those mentioned in Rgveda, She feels that all gods of Hinduism are basically the gods of the Rgveda which changed their forms from time to time to meet the demand of the people. In her view these developments are well attested to by the literature of historical times, e.g. the Smrtis and the Puranas. According to Chawla the early idea of image-making can be traced back in the hymns of the Rgveda particularly in the poetic imagery of early Vedic seers. She agrees that most of the Vedic deities, no doubt, originally represented the forces of nature but in the course of time, during the Rgvedic age itself, she feels that iconic concepts in regard to at least some divinities had already come into vogue. The author had also located and analysed certain Vedic terms preserving in them clues pertaining to bodily features of some deities. The representation of form as reflected in the expressions like rupani pimsatu and rupam sukrtam, is an indication of some kind of artistic activity in Rgvedic times. Perhaps emergence of the concept of Tvastr, the divine craftsman/artist, was a result of constantly growing creative urge of Rgvedic societies. Dr. Chawla views the whole growth of Hindu iconography as a continuous process of development from the period of the Rgveda onwards under the cover of religious philosophies. Yet, she does not deny the role of Indus civilization and external mythological import. Jyotsna Chawla further invites our attention to the Iconographic parellelism between the concept of Dyava-Prthivi, the eternal parents, and the one reflected in the unified form available in the Puranic iconography of Ardhanarisvara. She traces the growth of the iconic forms of Rgvedic deities like Siva, Surya, Soma, Yama, Asvins, etc. in the later periods when the Puranas were compiled. She has beautifully analysed the Vedic symbolism and the attributes held by various gods in the form of vajra, pasa, danda, sruk and sruva in a logical manner.

Aitoja ja Alueita: Kirjoituksia estetiikasta
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2001; 9517462476; New; 
Jyri Vuorinen selvittelee neljässä kirjoituksessa sanan esteettinen merkityksiä. Sanaahan käytetään monella tavalla. Joskus sillä tarkoitetaan taidetta, joskus kauneutta, joskus taas aistimista, havaitsemista ja muuta kokemista. Mutta jos esteettinen kytketään aistimiseen – niin kuin monet tekevät vedoten perustana olevaan kreikankieliseen sanaan aisthesis – niin kuinka voitaisiin puhua matematiikan esteettisyydestä, kauneudesta? Aidat synnyttävät alueita. Kun sanan käytön rajat vedetään uudella tavalla, saadaan syntymään uudenlainen alue, jossa äsken toisilleen kaukaiset asiat ovatkin muuttuneet läheisiksi. Matematiikkakin voi olla esteettistä, jos pyyhitään pois se raja, jonka jotkut ovat vetäneet abstraktisten asioiden ja esteettisyyden välille. Printed Pages: 257. 114058

Hänen kunnioitustaan käytettiin hyväksi sekä kristinuskon juurruttamisessa että poliittis-taloudellisesti ruotsalaisten siirtolaisten maahanmuutossa ja heidän poliittisen valtansa puolustamisessa. Pyhän Olavin kunnioitus levitti englantilaisia, saksalaisia ja skandinaavisia kulttuurivaikutuksia Suomeen. Hänen kultillaan oli siten merkittävä uskonnollinen, poliittis-taloudellinen ja kulttuurinen ulottuvuus. Tutkimus täsmentää ja täydentää aikaisemman tutkimuksen kuvaa pyhimyskulteista.

Quantum Field Theory of Non-equilibrium States
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521874998; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 175 x 255 Mm 
Quantum field theory is the application of quantum mechanics to systems with infinitely many degrees of freedom. This textbook presents quantum field theoretical applications to systems out of equilibrium. It introduces the real-time approach to non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and the quantum field theory of non-equilibrium states in general. It offers two ways of learning how to study non-equilibrium states of many-body systems: the mathematical canonical way and an easy intuitive way using Feynman diagrams. The latter provides an easy introduction to the powerful functional methods of field theory, and the use of Feynman diagrams to study classical stochastic dynamics is considered in detail. The developed real-time technique is applied to study numerous phenomena in many-body systems. Complete with numerous exercises to aid self-study, this textbook is suitable for graduate students in statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics. • Offers two ways of learning how to study non-equilibrium states of many-body systems • Presents the universal real-time formulation of non-equilibrium states and the corresponding Feynman diagram presentation • Shows a multitude of applications Contents Preface; 1.

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

Thought and Reality: A Critical Study of Hegel's Philosophy
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8180699552; Hardcover; New; New; 
This work on Hegel is an attempt to re-appreciate Hegel Philosophy. Philosophy of Hegel, the great German idealistic philosopher throughout the ages has been appreciated, depreciated and also denounced. The logical positivists and even majority of philosophers belonging to analytical tradition do not seem to recognize Hegel contribution. Moreover, the author has very clearly explained Hegel thesis that Reality and Thought are integrally connected. The author has tried to decipher the meaning and context of what has been said by Hegel. He has argued out in detail how Hegel was anticipated by Wittgenstein both in early and later. In the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus as well as in Philosophical Investigations, Wittgenstein develops the thesis that Language, Meanings, Thought and Reality form a complex. Dr. Ramsiej has argued cogently how the ideas of Hegel is similar to those of Wittgenstein. Printed Pages: 155. 112143

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
