The Political Structure of Early Medieval South India (Second Edition)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125046518; Second Edition; Softcover; New; 
A major intervention in Indian historiography when it was first published, this book examines the power structure of the four monarchies of south India under the Pallava, Pa??ya, Cera and Col?a kingdoms from the seventh through thirteenth centuries of the Common Era. In this revised edition, the author has added a new ‘Introduction’ in which he addresses the question of when, chronologically, the process of formation of a ‘state’ becomes visible in south India. He also examines the causative factors that brought about these changes at that particular juncture in history. The new introduction adds immense value to this important book on medieval south Indian history. It will be useful for students and scholars who wish to learn about the nature of state in early medieval India as a whole.Printed Pages: 308. 101944

15604 Keshav Dev Verma
Vedic Physics: Towards Unification of Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8120832701; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present volume on Vedic Physics by Keshav Dev Verma is indeed a unique attempt to interpret the ancient Indian literature by defining various symbols, concepts and the terminology occurring in Vedic hymns and other texts. While accepting Maharsi Dayananda's view that Vedas are the repository of all true sciences, the author does examine this statement with a view to test it on the hard rock of truth.Shri Verma has selected Sankhya-Patanjala system that explains the physical world (Universe) on the basis of Cosmic evolution; the Vaisesika-Nyaya expounds the methodology and elaborates the concepts of physics, chemistry and mechanics. Shri Verma has very systematically tried to interpret the Sankhya aphorisms and concludes that the ultimate ground to which the manifested world can be traced is Prakrti having three attributes-Sattva (existence), energy at rest or Rajas (energy that which is efficient in a phenomenon and is characterised by a tendency to move and overcome any resistance) and Tamas (mass or inertia) which resists the Rajas to do work and also resists Sattva from conscious manifestation.Printed Pages: 324. 102211

15608 Keshavaram N. Iengar & Rama P. Coomaraswamy
Spiritual Authority and Temporal Power in the Indian Theory of Government
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 1993; 0195631439; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Indian theory of government is expounded in this work on the basis of the textual sources, mainly of the Brahma?as and te ?gveda. The mantra from the Aitareya Brahma?a (VIII.27) by which the priest addresses the king, spells out the relation between the spiritual and the temporal power. This "marriage formula" has its analogous applications in the cosmic, political, family and individual spheres of operation, in each by the conjunction of complementary agencies. The welfare of the community in each case depends upon a succession of obediences and loyalties; that of the subjects to the dual control of king and priest, that of the king to the priest, and that of all to the principle of an eternal law (dharma) as king of kings.

15609 Keshavram N. Iengar & Rama P. Coomaraswamy (Eds)
Spiritual Authority and Temporal Power in the Indian Theory of Government
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124607346; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
A literary work built up with parallel citations is apt to grow in the compass of the author himself, from his encyclopaedic scholarship. This revised edition of one of Coomaraswamy's most significant writings is now being issued by incorporating his own additions to the printed first edition of 1942. The Indian theory of government is expounded on the basis of the textual sources, mainly of the Brahmanas and the Rigveda. The mantra in the Aitareya Brahmana VIII.27, by which the priest addresses the king, spells out the relation between the spiritual and the temporal power. This "marriage formula" has its analogous applications in the cosmic, political, family and individual spheres of operation, in each by the conjunction of complementary agencies. The welfare of the community in each case depends upon a succession of obediences and loyalties; that of the subjects to the dual control of king and priest, that of the king to the priest, and that of all to the principle of an External Law (dharma) as king of kings. The king is such by Divine Right, but by no means, an absolute monarch. He may do only what is correct under the Law. Self-control is the sine qua non for the successful government of others; the primary victory is that of the Inner Man. “The application is to the ‘king', the ‘man of action' and ‘artist' in any domain whatever. There is nothing that can be truly and well done or made except by the man in whom the marriage of the Sacerdotium (brahma) and the Regnum (kshatra) has been consummated, nor can any peace be made except by those who have made their peace with themselves.Printed Pages: 147. 100503

Resurrecting Candrakirti: Disputes in the Tibetan Creation of Prasangika
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 2010; 0861715209; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The seventh-century Indian master Candrakirti lived a life of relative obscurity, only to have his thoughts and writings rejuvenated during the Tibetan transmission of Buddhism. Since then, Candrakirti has been celebrated as offering the most thorough and accurate vision of Nagarjuna's view of emptiness which, in turn, most fully represents the final truth of the Buddha's teaching. Candrakirti's emptiness denies the existence of any "nature," or substantial, enduring essence in ourselves or in the phenomenal world while avoiding the extreme view of nihilism. In this view, our false belief in nature is at the root of our ignorance and is the basis for all mental and emotional pain and disturbance. For many Tibetan scholars, only Candrakirti's Middle Way entirely overcomes our false belief in inherent identity and, consequently, alone overcomes ignorance, delivering freedom from the cycle of uncontrolled death and rebirth known as samsara. Candrakirti's writings have formed the basis for Madhyamaka study in all major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. In Resurrecting Candrakirti, Kevin Vose presents the reader with a thorough presentation of Candrakirti's rise to prominence and the further elaborations the Tibetans have made on his presentation of emptiness. By splitting Madhyamaka into two sub-schools, namely the Svatantrika and Prasangika, the Tibetans became pioneers in understanding reality, and created a new way to define differences in interpretation. Resurrecting Candrakirti provides the historical and philosophical context necessary to understand both Madhyamaka and its importance to Tibetan Buddhist thought. Printed Pages: 304. 033976

Alchemists of Loss: How Modern Finance and Government Intervention Crashed The Financial System
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126527730; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Over the last thirty years, capital markets have been restructured through the tenets of modern finance. This has been enormously profitable for the financial services sector. However, these innovations, coupled with unsound risk and regulatory practices have proved disastrous for the global economy. In a clear and accessible style, ex-investment banker and financial journalist Martin Hutchinson, and highly respected academic, Kevin Dowd show how modern finance combined with easy money threatened to bring down the world financial system. At the heart of the book is modern finance as a U.S. invention, the theories and practices associated with them, and the changes they made in business models and risk management on Wall Street and other major financial centers. The Alchemists of Loss will help you to understand how our financial system crashed and show you what it will take to make sure this won't happen again as we move forward.Printed Pages: 432. 104524

A History of Anglicanism
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2006; 0521008662; First Edition; Paperback; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Anglicanism can be seen as irredeemably English. In this book Kevin Ward questions that assumption. He explores the character of the African, Asian, Oceanic, Caribbean and Latin American churches which are now a majority in the world-wide communion, and shows how they are decisively shaping what it means to be Anglican. While emphasising the importance of colonialism and neo-colonialism for explaining the globalisation of Anglicanism, Ward does not focus predominantly on the Churches of Britain and N. America; nor does he privilege the idea of Anglicanism as an 'expansion of English Christianity'. At a time when Anglicanism faces the danger of dissolution Ward explores the historically deep roots of non-Western forms of Anglicanism, and the importance of the diversity and flexibility which has so far enabled Anglicanism to develop cohesive yet multiform identities around the world. • Provides a comprehensive history of the non-white development of Anglicanism in both indigenous and Diaspora settings • Each chapter highlights the distinctive nature of the Anglican church in a specific region • Analyses the present crisis over homosexuality within a world-wide context Contents 1.

Pioneering the Human Development Revolution: An Intellectual Biography of Mahbub Ul Haq
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195695135; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Mahbub ul Haq, the father of human development, shaped development philosophy and practice in the four decades from the 1960s to 1990s. He shifted the focus of development discourse to people and their well-being, monitoring its progress through the Human Development Index. Haq initiated a global movement involving policymakers, scholars, and activists who adopted his innovative ideas for people-centric development where education, health, and political and economic empowerment together became the yardstick for measuring a country’s performance. This intellectual biography is a tribute to Haq’s pioneering work. Comprising essays by Haq’s intellectual partners and colleagues, the volume traces the evolution of his ideas, especially the links he established between economic growth, people’s well-being, and poverty alleviation. Each essay situates and discusses his contribution to the larger development debate and assesses the impact of his ideas on the contemporary global development agenda. 024313

While considerable literature has appeared on the political history and institutions of the Delhi Sultanate, a study of royalty as such has largely remained a desideratum. The present work fills this gap in our historical studies. It surveys the historical landscape of medieval India from the foot of the royal throne. Besides a glimpse into the public and private life of the sultans, it throws lot of light on their ethnic background, their legal and actual position, their patronage of art and culture, their religious leanings, contact with outside world and relations with the Hindus. In short it covers the entire spectrum of the life of the Delhi sultans from the haram to the battlefield. The study is based on an extensive search and discovery of new source material.

On History and Historians of Medieval India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1983; 8121501520; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The present work is based on an extensive and critical study of the historical literature of medieval India and provides fresh perspectives for its interpretation and analysis. The introductory chapter identifies different types of literature, political and non-political, available for reconstructing the history of medieval India. The author's views about historiographical concepts and conspectus of the medieval historians are original and thought-provoking. Holding the view that a study of the thought-process of a historian should precede the utilization of data supplied by him, the author has x-rayed the prejudices, predilections, motives, and objectives of Minhaj, Barani, Abul Fazl and others with remarkable insight and erudition. The author's psycho-historical method of analysis and interpretation makes the work extremely fascinating and informative. The author has drawn attention to the historical value of the table talks of the Sufi saints of medieval India, has highlighted the importance of historical literature produced during the reign of Akbar, has established the apocryphal nature of the so-called autobiography of Muhammad b. Tughluq, and has shown that the Futuhat-i-Firuz Shahi was an inscription and should not be taken as a complete exposition of the policies of Firoz Shah Tughluq. The work is a valuable addition to literature on medieval Indian Historiography. Printed Pages: 276. 017554

15649 Khandro Rinpoche
This Precious Life: Tibetan Buddhist Teachings on the Path to Enlightenment
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2003; 1570623074; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
Using the traditional Tibetan Buddhist framework of the Four Reminders—the preciousness of human birth, the truth of impermanence, the reality of suffering, and the inescapability of karma—Khandro Rinpoche explains why and how we could all better use this short life to pursue a spiritual path and make the world a better place. She says, "Think of all the time you've wasted hesitating or feeling distracted, or expending useless energy feeling jealous or angry, or being selfish. At the time of death, you'll look back and it will all seem like a dream." The book includes contemplative exercises that encourage us to appreciate the tremendous potential of the human body and mind. They focus on how we can learn to see this life as a gift—and how, by achieving peace in our own lives, we can bring a seed of happiness to other people. Although raised in Asia, Khandro Rinpoche is well-versed in Western culture, which allows her to translate Tibetan Buddhist wisdom to Westerners with remarkable authenticity and immediacy. She is also one the most highly trained living Tibetan masters and has been teaching in the United States and Europe for over fifteen years, during which time she has attracted thousands of students. She brings a unique feminine perspective to the wisdom tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Printed Pages: 205. 007405

15650 Khateeb S. Mustafa
A Descriptive Grammar of Dakkhini
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 812150886X; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The present work attempts to analyse and describe Dakkhini, a variety of Urdu spoken in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh in the framework of descriptive linguistic theory. It presents the phonology, morphology and syntax of the dialect. It also discusses briefly the origin and development of Dakkhini, its speakers in Chittoor district and the whole of Andhra Pradesh and the existing relationship between Dakkhini and Telugu on the one hand and Dakkhini and standard Urdu on the other. It also has a section known as texts which contains a few samples of the data. Dakkhini has assumed crucial importance in socio-linguistics. Since its major implantation in the beginning of the fourteenth century, it has undergone subtle changes in its structure partly due to linguistic acculturation, convergence and aerial contact with different languages in different areas and partly due to innovations it has been making on its own over the years. It is therefore marked by great diversity and heterogeneity. The Dakkhini situation may thus serve not only as a testing ground to validate many a concept of aerial linguistics, but also as a mirror to read the dynamics of convergence of the languages and dialects belonging to two different milieu. The current book has been intended as a fairly detailed grammatical description of a dialect of Dakkhini which is unique in many ways. Although it does not directly deal with a socio-linguistic theme, it endeavours to provide sufficient evidence for a bi-directional convergence, that is, from Dravidian language to Dakkhini and vice versa. It is hoped that the work may arouse some curiosity in linguists working in the area of language contact, language variation, language topology, etc. Printed Pages: 294 with 3 maps. 011984

The premiere volume of Thupten Jinpa's thirty-two-volume Library of Tibetan Classics, inaugurated to coincide with the Dalai Lama's conferral of the initiation rite of Kalachakra in Toronto in April 2004. The Kalachakra (literally, "Wheel of Time") tantra, a core practice of Tibetan Buddhism, is a method for transforming the universe by working with the body and mind. This first volume of the Library of Tibetan Classics series was hand-picked by the Dalai Lama—who recognized it as the finest explication of this practice—and overseen by Thupten Jinpa, whose work has been indispensable to Tibetan Buddhism, both in the West and on the whole. Gavin Kilty's fluid translation makes this volume a pleasure to read. Like its classical Indian predecessor, Stainless Light or Vimalaprabha by Pundarika, Norsang Gyatso's commentary is divided into five sections: (1) the outer world, including the unique Kalachakra cosmology, (2) the inner world of the individual and the subtle nervous system, (3) the Kalachakra initiation rite, (4) the sadhana and generation-stage practices, and (5) the completion-stage practices, including pranayama. Ten appendixes plus a glossary, notes, and bibliography make this an indispensable reference volume on the Kalachakra tantra. Printed Pages: 736. 037137

What would you see if you looked directly at your mind? The Tibetan Buddhist teachings on mahamudra are known for their ability to lead to profound realization. Peaceful and infinitely adaptable, these teachings are as useful for today''s busy world as they have been for centuries. Written by the tutor to the seventeenth Karmapa, Essentials of Mahamudra is a commentary on Tashi Namgyal''s famous Moonlight of Mahamudra-a text that the sixteenth Karmapa had identified as the most valuable for Westerners. Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche recognized that Western meditators don''t just need to know how to maintain our meditation practice-we need to know why we should do it. Unmatched in its directness, Essentials of Mahamudra addresses both these needs, rendering one of the most advanced forms of meditation more easily adaptable to our everyday lives.

15664 Khenpo Yeshe Phuntsok
Vajrasattva Meditation: An Illustrated Guide
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 1614292051; First Edition; Paperback; New; 6 x 9 Inches 
The force of our past actions makes it hard to attain our goals, including success in meditation. And so Buddhism has developed methods for purifying our past, clearing the obstacles to success and fulfillment. One of the most popular methods for karmic housekeeping, one common to all schools of Tibetan Buddhism, is the preparatory practice of visualizing the buddha Vajrasattva and reciting his hundred-syllable mantra. It is considered an essential foundation for the success of spiritual endeavor. The practice of Vajrasattva is often the first experience practitioners have of trying to perform tantric ritual. Combining prayers, visualizations, mantra recitations, and multiple styles of meditation, it can be hard for those who did not grow up in the tradition to know how to proceed. This friendly volume by a young Tibetan lama with many followers in China lays out the practice step by step accompanied by sixty color illustrations. Printed Pages: 200. 038718

Meditation of a Tibetan Tantric Abbot
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 1998; 818510204X; Softcover; New; 
This Book presents, with intimate detail of the oral tradition, the main practices of the Mahayana Buddhist path. It details the attitudes cultivated in Meditation - ranging from turning away from cyclic existence, to developing love and compassion for all beings, to the profound view of emptiness.Kensur Lekden was the Abbot of the Tantric College of Lower Lhasa prior to the Chinese invasion. Renowned among the Tibetans as a great lecturer on varied topics, in this work he highlights the incisive and direct approach of mind transformation that runs contrary to the ordinary worldly perspective. A scholar who knew the meaning of applying the great teachings as precepts for practical application, Kensur Lekden, embodied the total involvement of the mind as per 'Mahayana'. Of particular interest is his explanation of the compatibility of emptiness and dependent-arising, showing that realization of emptiness opens the way for understanding the true nature of things, both ultimate and conventional. His blend of compassion and WISDOM is most striking.Printed Pages: 107. 103615

The book delves into many philosophical and spiritual realms such as life-after-death, good versus evil, and freewill.Bhavnagri was inspired to write this book after her two sons, Vispi and Ratoo, were killed in a fatal car crash on February 22, 1980. A month after her sons’ passing, the author claims that she received messages from her boys asking her to communicate with them through automatic writing. The author further states that her sons were trying to guide her through her mission on Earth, which was to spread spirituality and to stay on God’s path. Through telepathy and automatic writing, Bhavnagri put together the contents of The Laws Of The Spirit World.According to the The Laws Of The Spirit World, there are seven realms of existence in the spiritual domain. The first three realms are similar to Hell, and the point is to progress towards Heaven. The text examines questions such as does a god-fearing person ever try to fool god? and what is a good deed? The author also stipulates that on Earth, evil doers have no recollection of their sins. However, after death, these individuals have to constantly confront the memories of their sins. After reading The Laws Of The Spiritual World, readers will be forced to rethink their position on concepts such as god, free will, and the meaning of life.Printed Pages: 360. 105414

Sultanate Architecture of Bengal: An Analysis of Architectural and Decorative Elements
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8174791094; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Various indigenous and extraneous elements of Sultanate Architecture of Bengal have been discussed in this book. How these elements are manifest in different monuments of Bengal has also been shown. The idea of mosques and tombs is itself extraneous. Muslim immigrants brought with them many characteristics and traits of architecture from their country of origin. On the other hand many local elements also crept into the joint endeavour of the conquered and conqueror, who created an architecture of a cosmopolitan character. While visiting monuments of this period one can visualise elements from Iran, Central Asia, Egypt and even from Europe vis-a-vis tahtched roofs of rural huts and elements of previous Buddhist and Hindu architectural elements originating from Bengal. Some elements may be classified as indigenous or extraneous without any doubt. But some of these elements give scope for controversy. Elements like glazed tiles and actuate system of buildings etc. are no doubt extraneous elements. On the other hand curved cornices and hut-shaped roofs of buildings etc. are of indigenous origin. Some elements are controversial, such as, small covered type mosques, profuse use of terracotta's, trefoil arched mihrab in the Adina mosque etc. All the monuments describe in this book have been visited by the author starting from 1979 A.D. Main aim and objective of this book is to trace the origin of diifferent elements of Sultanate architecture of Bengal. This book contains six chapters i.e. Sultanate Architecture of Bengal, Different Sultanate Buildings of Bangladesh, Miscellaneous Buildings, Different Elements of Sultanate Architecture of Bengal, Decoration in Sultanate Buildings and Major Findings. These chapters are supported with illustrations, notes, references, bibliography, glossary, colour photographs and will be interest to the scholars, students as well as to the general readers.Printed Pages: 303. 104246

Three Mughal Poets: Mir. Sauda. Mir Hasan
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195633911; Third Impression; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The three great poets presented in this volume - Mir, Mir Hasan and Sauda - lived in Delhi, or in its general vicinity, in the eighteenth century during a time of widespread violence and disaster. The Mughal Empire was crumbling and disintegrating internally as the great feudal nobles fought among themselves for control of the emperor. In this atmosphere of misery, demoralization, and despair occurred the first major flowering of Urdu literature. Sauda, the first to be discussed, wrote poems in all the main classical forms, but he was an unequalled satirist in an age that cried for satire, and it is that portion of his work that is considered here. Mir Hasan also was born in Delhi and probably lived there until after the occupation, massacre, and looting of 1739, which occurred when he was about fourteen. Like his two contmporaries, he wrote in all the classical forms and excelled in one, to which he devoted most of his effort. In his case it was the mansavi, a long narrative poem in rhymed couplets often telling a love story. Mir, perhaps the greatest of the three, is, in the opinion of the authors, one of the great love poems of world literature. His favourite form was the ghazal, a subtle and difficult one which the authors discuss in detail, giving numerous examples. In presenting these Mughal poets, the authors have let the literature speak for itself wherever possible, adding a minimum of comment. (This is a paperback edition of the earlier hardback published in 1991.) Printed Pages: 304. 016039

In this translation of some of Guru Nanak’s finest devotional poems, the fifteenth century founder of the Sikh religion points the way to self-realisation by love, devotion, and service to man and God. The hymns have as direct and strong a message today as they did when they were first composed. The elements of faith and passion are sensitively brought out in Arpita Singh’s paintings which, in colour and inspired drawing, heighten the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of Guru Nanak’s divine verse.

Ranjit Singh: Maharaja of the Punjab
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143065432; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
The classic biography of one of India’s greatest rulers Ranjit Singh was in every way as remarkable a man as his contemporaries, Napoleon and Mohammed Ali. From the status of petty chieftain he rose to become the most powerful Indian ruler of his time. His empire extended from Tibet to the deserts of Sindh and from the Khyber Pass to the Sutlej. His army was one of the most powerful of the time in Asia and was the first Indian force in a thousand years to stem the tides of invasion from the north-west frontiers of Hindustan. This is the first detailed biography of the first and only Sikh ruler of the Punjab by a Sikh writer who has devoted many years of his life to research on Sikh history. In this classic work Khushwant Singh presents Ranjit Singh as he really was. Based on Persian, Punjabi and English sources and drawing upon the diaries and accounts of European travellers like Moorcroft, Sir Alexander Burne, Masson, Fane and Emily Eden, this is a memorable account of the pageantry and brilliance of the Sikh Kingdom at the height of its power, and a lively portrait of one of the most colourful characters in Indian history. 'Khushwant Singh has retained the flavour and taste of those heady times when the Sikh cavalry galloped to victory on every battlefield they happened to traverse. With this classic work, he has brought alive yet another colourful chapter in Indian history.' —The Indian Express ‘A memorable account of the pageantry and brilliance of the Sikh kingdom at the height of its power'—Financial Express.
