Comparative Literacy Theory: An Overview
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607206; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Two cultures of the world — Greek and Indian — have nourished literature. While the contemporary Western thinking is rooted in Greek thought, especially of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, and percolated down to the modern European languages with the advent of Christian thought, the multilingual Indian literary tradition has its base from the classical Tamil, Pali, Prakrt and Sanskrit. Though cultural specificity marks these two traditions off from each other, the universal human condition that finds expression in all literatures binds them together. This book delves deep into the growth of poetics, theory of literature, literary artefacts, aesthetics of literature as an art form, and dramaturgy and philosophy of literature. Cultures have given forms as their typical expressions — for India great epics, for Greece tragedies, and for England lyrics. Similarly, different ages of a culture find expression in different forms — Elizabethan age of England in lyrics, sixteenth-seventeenth centuries in drama, eighteenth century in prose, and nineteenth century in novel. India’s genius is in epics and its expression unfolds in shravya-preksha compositions, being singable poetry as its preferred form. This book must serve pretty useful for students and teachers of literature. Also, an invaluable collection for researchers in literature.Printed Pages: 232. 100473

Dimensions of Renunciation in Advaita Vedanta
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8120808258; Hardcover; New; New; 
The aim of this dissertation is to present a systematic exposition of renunciation (Samnyasa) as a philosophico-religious category within Indian tradition with special reference to Advaita Vedanta of Samkaracarya. The author tried to justify this category as a spiritual technique systematically worked out and developed by Advaitins particularly Samkara with a view to classifying and systematizing values in terms of the different forms which renunciation and its object may be found to assume. This dissertation also highlights principles of human behaviour in the Indian tradition implicitly clarifying thereby such concepts as dharma (socio-religious duties), the good life, obligation and responsibility etc.Printed Pages: 168. 102139

I Witness: Partial Observations
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939458; Softcover; New; 
I Witness is Kapil Sibal's first sojourn into the literary sphere, a refreshing digression from his pragmatic and prosaic worlds of administration and policy-making. Mostly in rhyme, the poems are contemporary in theme, wickedly amusing, sharp and sparkling like cut glass. On the other hand, revelations of tenderness, longing and a certain tentativeness through romantic yet feisty love poems bare a hitherto hidden facet of a very public man. The poems move effortlessly between the private and public world of this closet poet. Emotions ranging from love to terrorism, Twenty 20 cricket to global warming and Antarctica are disarming yet perspicacious and strung together with sensitivity. And above all, there is the ability of the poet to laugh at himself. Incisive and insightful, the poems make for a delectable cordon bleu spread to be savoured by the discerning connoisseur.

Prakrti: The Integral Vision, 5 Vols
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8124600368; Hardcover; New; New; 
Why do we feel warm in the sunlight? Why does the sun feel warm? Is it a physical phenomenon? Is it the body that feels warm? Is it nature that provides warmth? Is it only the sun that provides warmth? Or are there other elements in interaction with the body which produce the warmth?If it is the body that feels warm, then what is body? Is it matter? Is it an aggregation of five elements?" These ostensibly simple, childlike questions — asked by the distinguished scientist, the late Professor D.S. Kothari, at the very outset of an enlightening talk about three years ago — lead us to one of the mankind’s universal concerns: Prakriti: a Sanskrit equivalent of Nature, in its broadest connotations.Ever since man’s first conscious awareness of the phenomena of nature around him, and yet more of his indispensable dependence in primal elements (bhutas/mahabhutas), Prakriti has evoked varying responses in science, philosophy, religion, arts, and in civilizations as far apart as Egyptian, Chinese, Greek and Indian — permeating expressions through the written or the oral words, generating a language of myth and symbol which communicates across cultures. Already countless myths of the origin of the universe, creation, cosmology and cosmogony have been developed on the concept of the Elements/Bhutas: earth, air, water, fire, and space (ether). Already there exists a vast body of sources and an equally extensive, highly complex history of critical discourse on the nature of primal elements and their indispensability not only to man, but to all life on earth. Supporting the Rigvedic verse: "Truth is one, (though) man knows it by different names", Prakriti: The Integral Vision explores, through "different paths", a single universal theme: the concept of Primal Elements (Bhutas/Mahabhutas): earth, air, water, fire and space, and how this concept has, over the ages, been viewed in different cultures which, undoubtedly, have shaped the evolution of human civilization. The authors, representing a whole variety of academic disciplines, look afresh at folklorist accounts, scriptural literature, religious traditions, and different genres of art to conjure an intergal vision of prakriti — with insightful perspectives on the ‘nature of matter’ and ‘man in nature’. Prakriti: The Integral Vision assumes an added significance today, when man is threatened by pollution: inner and outer, of his own making. Though contemporary idiom and through illustration, it revalidates the vital importance of primal elements: the very fundamentals that make human life possible on the earth — emphasizing that the maintenance, sustenance and purity of these "primary and primal" elements are not matters of intellectual discourse alone, but have to be the objectives of our life, lest death overtakes us!Printed Pages: 101708

Metaphors of the Indian Arts and Other Essays
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608202; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
This anthology Metaphors of the Indian Arts and Other Essays is a selection of writings of Dr Kapila Vatsyayan’s nearly four-decade long journey as an art critic and art historian. It reveals the distinct nature of Indian arts from the angle of the world-view in which they emerge. At the same time, it amply shows the theory of art and aesthetics which may enable us to “to see the other traditions of art from our own window”. In a seminal article entitled “Metaphors of the Indian Arts”, the author identifies some fundamentals which permeate the Indian artistic traditions. In the article entitled “Mountain, Myth, Monuments” Dr Vatsyayan discusses the significance of mountains and the sanctuaries, diversity of attitude and approaches to them in Indian context. She focuses on sacred mountains, especially Kailasa, which have dominated the Indian imagination for many millennia in the world of literature, architecture, sculpture, music and dance. The attitude to the human body as also the self-consciousness of the relationship of the senses and the mind in diverse civilizations has been of special interest to the author for decades. In the article “Early Evidence of Female Figures, Music and Dance”, she points at essentials of treating the human body in Indian art, specially the female body, over a long span of history. She draws attention to the large measure of consensus on the identification of “meaning” of the particular or single image or relief, ranging from the examples from Mesopotamia to Assyria to Egypt and the figurines and statues of the Indus Valley, Mohenjo-Daro, Harappa and Mehergarh. Further she returns to explicitly stating the ideational background of Indian aesthetics. Finally, she identifies certain motifs which have travelled across a vast geographical area, specially in South-East Asia. Altogether, these essays will enable the reader to trace not only her journey but also her place in Indian art history as a carrier of a tradition of A.K. Coomaraswamy and Stella Kramrisch.Printed Pages: 352. 100549

The Transformation of Nature in Art
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8120716434; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the Present work of Coomaraswamy attempts to explain the theory behind medieval European and Asian art, especially art in India. He further supplements the Indian theorywith that of the Chinese. The first principle of his theories is that art does not exist for its own sake; it exists as means to some religious conditions or experience. The comparison with medieval European art in this respect is extremely illuminating. He further shows that both differ radically from the post-Renaissance European Art.Coomaraswamy discusses the theory of art in Asia in the first chapter and contends that the Indian artist did not seek an illusion of Nature, rather he tried to create a truthful suggestion of the character of the subject. He examines, in the second chapter, the medieval European aesthetics in terms of the fourteenth century German mystic, Meister Eckhart. Following chapters investigate through Indian texts the psychology of the Indian view of art. And finally, the origin and use of images in India are discussed in the last chapter.Printed Pages: 101628

The Arts of Kerala Kshetram
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121213142; Hardcover; New; New; 
In her continuing quest, re-affirming the vision of India as an organic whole, Dr. Kapila Vatsyayan approaches the arts of Kerala both in their distinctive qualities and holistic dimension, which ideally represent the dynamics of Indian cultural processes. This monograph, based on the inaugural Parikshit Memorial Lecture delivered by Dr. Vatsyayan at the Government Sanskrit College, Tripunithura in August 1988, now reprinted, has been commended by many as remarkably rich in the variety of art forms it covers and the directions for future research it offers in the area. Dr. Vatsyayan has had close association with South India, especially Tamil Nadu and Kerala. She has travelled the length and breadth of Kerala, often on foot, studying its art forms and visiting temples. The present volume is a result of this experience. In this exploration, the author dwells on varied topics like the popular myths and the archetypal images of Bhagavati, Shiva and Bhima and their sociological connotations and various forms of oral, ritual and visual arts ranging from paintings, murals and sculptures to the performing arts belonging to the folk and classical traditions. She revisits these art forms, often termed as “little” and “great” traditions, and shows how performing art forms, like Kathakali and Krishnanattam, serve as a bridge between them.

KJo, as he is popularly called, has been a much-loved Bollywood film director, producer, actor, and discoverer of new talent.

In his trademark frank style, he talks about the ever-changing face of Indian cinema, challenges and learnings, as well as friendships and rivalries in the industry. Honest, heart-warming and insightful, An Unsuitable Boy is both the story of the life of an exceptional film-maker at the peak of his powers and of an equally extraordinary human being who shows you how to survive and succeed in life.

Every successful country has an operating system, a value system on which the country’s socio economic institutions are built. India has had none and therefore the chaos and resultant failure to succeed in a globally competitive environment for capital and correlated wealth creation.

Divided into - three epochs- past, present and future, the book attempts to see the bigger picture and understand India as a country, as a value system and as an economy from within.Printed Pages: 2012. 104252

Essays on Hinduism (Third Edition)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789384082017; Third Edition; Softcover; New; 
In this collection of essays the author discusses the basics of Hinduism. Outlining the message of the Bhagavad-Gita and the Upanisads, he argues that Hinduism is not a cult, nor a bunch of dogmas, but a religion of the highest order that speaks of an immanent and transcendental god. It also offers a philosophy of life that cuts across ethnic and geographic barriers between men. According to him, the essentials of Hindu religio-philosophic teaching are pervaded by the ideal of universalism and love for humanity. The author drives home the relevance of Hindu universalism to an age in which nations are armed for mutual annihilation. He maintains that successful application of the religio-philosophic teachings of Hindu seers will help humankind to overcome the worst crisis facing it in this nuclear age, and will lead to restructuring the world on the all-embracing principle of freedom and equity. The text is followed by the author's lucid translation and commentary on Mundaka Upanisad. The book is the revised edition of his earlier Hinduism.Printed Pages: 178. 102058

15949 Karen Chase; Introduction By Milo Beach
Jamali-Kamali: A Tale of Passion in Mughal India
MapinLit: An Imprint of Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2011; 818999512X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Just off busy Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road in Delhi, the 16th century Sufi court poet Jamali is buried in a tomb next to Kamali, of whom the printed matter says "identity unknown", but who helpful guides, say was the poet's lover. Little about them is known. According to Delhi's oral tradition, Jamali and Kamali were homosexual lovers. Others believe Kamali was Jamali's wife and some others that "Kamali" was Jamali's nom de plume. Over the reigns of Sikandar Lodi, Babur and Humayun, Jamali's travels take him to distant lands like Syria, Iran, Ceylon, Mecca and Spain separating the lovers for long periods of time. The verse moves from Jamali's longing to Kamali's lament, re-creating the interplay between their passionate hearts. About the Author Karen Chase lives in western Massachusetts. Her poems, stories and essays have appeared in many magazines and her work has been widely anthologized. She is the award-winning author of two collections of poetry, Kazimierz Square and Bear, and the non-fiction book, Land of Stone. Printed Pages: 79 with colour illustrations. 036576

Gender, Sainthood, & Everyday Practice in South Asian Shi’ism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121512484; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In this study of devotional hagiographical texts And contemporary ritual performances of the Shi’a of Hyderabad, India, Karen Ruffle demonstrates how traditions of sainthood and localized cultural values shape gender roles. Ruffle focuses on the annual mourning assemblies held on 7 Muharram to commemorate the battlefield wedding of Fatimah Kubra and her warrior-bridegroom Qasem, who was martyred in 680CE at the battle of Karbala, Iraq, before their marriage was consummated. Ruffle argues that hagiography, an important textual tradition in Islam, plays a dynamic role in constructing the memory, piety, and social sensibilities of a Shi’i community. Through the Hyderabadi rituals that idealize and venerate Qasem, Fatimah Kubra, and the other heroes of Karbala, a distinct from of sainthood is produced. These saints, Ruffle explains, serve as socioethical role models and religious paragons whom Shil’i Muslims aim to imitate in their everyday lives, improving their personal religious practice and social selves. On a broader community level Ruffle observes, such practices help generate and reinforce group identity, shared ethics, and gendered sensibilities. By putting gender and everyday practice at the center of her study, Ruffle challenges Shi’i patriarchal narratives that present only men as saints and brings to light typically overlooked women’s religious practices.

Leading The Virtual Workforce: How Great Leaders Transform Organizations in the 21St Century
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126528966; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This book is about the rise of the ambassadorial leader and the need for related leadership skills in the digital and virtual age. It includes a treatment of leadership that has not been done before; using the virtual distance model as a launch point for a new way of looking at leadership. The book covers not only the behaviors that leaders need to understand that can lead to increased virtual distance but also the organizational structural changes and resource shifts that have led to the need to re-think leadership for the virtual age. Then, using the foundation of virtual distance and related contextual issues to describe ambassadorial leadership, it discusses the elements of an ambassadorial leader, includes case studies of leaders that exhibit ambassadorial leader qualities, and provides a full self-assessment with tools and techniques to how to become a better leader in the virtual world.Printed Pages: 192. 104715

Faces of Goa
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121205840; Hardcover; New; New; 
Faces of Goa explores the culture and History of Goa from early records till date, with an aim to provide an exclusive historical and socio-economic Study of Goa. This Book is designed in such a way that before the reader reads about Goa, he/she explores and expands the very definition of culture to view culture as a continuous process of evolution. Through this new perspective the reader then travels through Goa's past and present to experience Goa through the Eyes of a sociologist. The authores thus utilises both historical records and modern-day Observations to provide a more complete Picture of India's 25th State in this study.The second section of this work then explores the process of rural-urban migration as it relates to Goa and demonstrates that migration substantially affects a community's Cultural Patterns and evolution. Mumbai, Mangalore, and Bangalore are the three Cities chosen to explore this theme. The third section of this work details how other Communities along the West Coast of India were also influenced by the presence of the Portuguese and the resulting cultural evolution of these areas.Printed Pages: 507. 105868

Women of Honour: Gender and Agency among Dalit Women in the Central Himalayas
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125042679; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
In Women of Honour , Karin Polit gives an ethnographic account of how relationships are shaped among the Dalit people of Chamoli, Utttarakhand. Through thick descriptions of everyday life—conversations, friendship, dress, work—the author shows that gender identity is a process. Questioning the assumption that Indian women are mute and powerless, she argues that the people of Chamoli—women and men—see themselves as part of an agentive unity. These networks of agency, which include divine agents, are described as the basis of an honourable life. The book will be of interest to anthropologists, feminists—especially Dalit feminists, sociologists and cultural critics. Printed pages: 380. 036906

The Cambridge Companion to German Idealism
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2000; 0521656958; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The Cambridge Companion to German Idealism offers a comprehensive, penetrating, and informative guide to what is regarded as the classical period of German philosophy. Kant, Fichte, Hegel, and Schelling are all discussed in detail, together with a number of their contemporaries, such as Hölderlin and Schleiermacher, whose influence was considerable but whose work is less well known in the English-speaking world. The essays in the volume trace and explore the unifying themes of German Idealism, and discuss their relationship to Romanticism, the Enlightenment, and the culture of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe. The result is an illuminating overview of a rich and complex philosophical movement, and will appeal to a wide range of readers in philosophy, German studies, theology, literature, and the history of ideas. Contents Introduction: interpreting German Idealism Karl Ameriks; 1. The Enlightenment and Idealism Frederick Beiser; 2. Absolute Idealism and the rejection of Kantian dualism Paul Guyer; 3.

When the Clouds Part: The Uttaratantra and Its Meditative Tradition as a Bridge between Sutra and Tantra
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2015; 155939417X; Hardcover; New; New; 
“Buddha nature” (tathagatagarbha) is the innate potential in all living beings to become a fully awakened buddha. This book discusses a wide range of topics connected with the notion of buddha nature as presented in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and includes an overview of the sutra sources of the tathagatagarbha teachings and the different ways of explaining the meaning of this term. It includes new translations of the Maitreya treatise Mahayanottaratantra (Ratnagotravibhaga), the primary Indian text on the subject, its Indian commentaries, and two (hitherto untranslated) commentaries from the Tibetan Kagyü tradition. Most important, the translator’s introduction investigates in detail the meditative tradition of using the Mahayanottaratantra as a basis for Mahamudra instructions and the Shentong approach. This is supplemented by translations of a number of short Tibetan meditation manuals from the Kadampa, Kagyü, and Jonang schools that use the Mahayanottaratantra as a work to contemplate and realize one’s own buddha nature.

Luminous Heart: The Third Karmapa on Consciousness, Wisdom, and Buddha Nature
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1559393181; Hardcover; New; New; 
This superb collection of writings on buddha nature by the Third Karmapa Rangjung Dorje (1284–1339) focuses on the transition from ordinary deluded consciousness to enlightened wisdom, the characteristics of buddhahood, and a buddha's enlightened activity. Most of these materials have never been translated comprehensively. The Third Karmapa's unique and well-balanced view synthesizes Yogacara Madhyamaka and the classical teachings on buddha nature. Rangjung Dorje not only shows that these teachings do not contradict each other but also that they supplement each other and share the same essential points in terms of the ultimate nature of mind and all phenomena. His fusion is remarkable because it clearly builds on Indian predecessors and precedes the later often highly charged debates in Tibet about the views of Rangtong ("self-empty") and Shentong ("other-empty"). Although Rangjung Dorje is widely regarded as one of the major proponents of the Tibetan Shentong tradition (some even consider him its founder), this book shows how his views differ from the Shentong tradition as understood by Dolpopa Taranatha and the First Jamgon Kongtrul. The Third Karmapa's view is more accurately described as one in which the two categories of rangtong and shentong are not regarded as mutually exclusive but are combined in a creative synthesis. For those practicing the sutrayana and the vajrayana in the Kagyu tradition, what these texts describe can be transformed into living experience. Printed Pages: 512. 112978

The Center of the Sunlit Sky: Madhyamaka in the Kagyü Tradition
Snow Lion Publications; Ithaca, New York, USA; 2008; 1559392185; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Madhyamaka is a potent and universally accessible means of calming our suffering and awakening to our innate wisdom. The Center of the Sunlit Sky artfully rescues this brilliant teaching from its unwarranted reputation for intellectual opacity and reinstates it as a supremely practical tool kit for everyday living. The aim of this book is to take Madhyamaka out of the purely intellectual corner into which it--unjustly--gets boxed. It is an attempt to show how Madhayamaka actually addresses and works with all of our experiences in life. The book follows the original Indian sources as well as the standard commentaries on Madhyamaka in the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. At the same time, these materials are adapted for a contemporary audience, combining the familiar sharpness of Madhyamaka reasonings (launching a massive assault on our cherished belief systems) with exploring the practical relevance of the Madhyamaka way of mind training.

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies (Volume 8: Buddhist Philosophy from 100 to 350 A.D)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 812081553X; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The following volume constitutes the second in a series devoted to Buddhist philosophy. It takes up more or less where its predecessor, Volume VII of this Encyclopedia, leaves off, around the beginning of the second century A.D. This is a period still not well understood, with a great deal of scholarly disagreement remaining about many aspects of the history and thought of the period. The editor of the volume has tried to utilize the most up-to-date scholarship known to us. The volume treats the subject altogether chronologically, beginning with the Buddha and ending when Buddhist thought leaves India around 14th century A.D. The purpose behind this approach is to avoid imposing more divisions into Buddhism than are historically apparent. The scope of these volumes is limited to summaries of the texts that are of philosophical interest throughout, theoretical rather than practical in their intended function, and polemical or at least expository in a context where defence of one view among alternatives is appropriate. These criteria have been interpreted here broadly and loosely.

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies (Volume 16: Philosophy of Purva-Mimamsa)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120836448; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
'Mimamsa', as used classically, has among its meanings that of an "exploration" or "investigation" of something. In the context of early Vedic thought, it can mean specifically a theory governing the origins, basic values, and assumptions about man, in particular about the type of actions a human should or should not perform, as suggested and sometimes spelled out in the Vedas. The Vedas, the oldest extant literature of what is now considered Hinduism, generated a vast literature of their own. Some of this passed down to us in the form of brief pronouncements called sutras, which were presumably meant for memorization and were not always independently intelligible. These sutras in turn generated explanatory commentaries, and commentaries upon commentaries. The basic sutras of what came to be the Purva Mimamsa system were known as the Mimamsa-sutras or Purvamimamsasutras ('Purva' since another set of literature expounding a different understanding of ultimate things came to be recognized also as Mimamsa, specifically "Uttara" or later Mimamsa.) Initially the Purva Mimamsa had no special recognition of the subject matter of philosophy as understood in these volumes of our Encyclopedia, and would not warrant treatment as Indian philosophy in other systems developed ideas concerning the assumptions of rebirth, transmigration, and the possibility of attainment of final liberation, Purva Mimamsa also developed a philosophical system in response, beginning with further commentaries on their sutras and proceeding on to independent works, comprising a collection of texts which constitutes the philosophy being studied in the present Volume.Printed Pages: 682. 102133

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies: Acintyabhedhabheda Vaisnava Philosophy, Volume 19
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Private Limited/Research India Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120839978; Hardcover; New; New; 
Confronted with a series of volumes called the Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies, one is likely to ask, What constitutes 'philosophy' in the relevant sense? Introductions to understood as investigation of the nature of and path (s) to liberation from rebirth (moksa; nirvana), a definition which seems to fit most Indian schools of thought as taught and practiced in the classical period (500 B.C.-1000 A.D.), whether Jain, Buddhist or Hindu. These schools persists for the most part into the twenty-first century, though concern for liberation is in some cases overshadowed by the rise of a commitment to religious purposes, understood broadly as bhakti or devotion to God. The system that is the subject of the present volume is one such devotional system. As this volume demonstrates, the concern of this system is two-fold: liberation is accepted, but downplayed in the face of the requirements of true devotion. The system is but one representative of devotional systems; other such systems, equally deserving of a volume devoted to them (such as Suddhadvaita), are regretably not planned for inclusion in this Encyclopedia. In Part I of the book the Introduction written by Prof. Ramakanta Chakravarti focuses on "Gaudiya Vaisnavism in Bengal." In Part II the summaries of works include Caitanya, Raghunath Goswami Dasa, Sanatana Gosvami, Rupa Gosvami, Raghunatha Bhatta, Gopala Bhatta, Jiva Gosvami, Narottama Dasa, Narayana Bhatta, Visnudasa Gosvami, Vamsidhara, Visvanatha Cakarvarti, Radha Damodara, Rupa Kaviraj, Baladeva Vidyabhushana, Savai Jayasimha, Bhavanicarana Tarkabhusana, Krsnadeva Sarvabhauma or Vedantavagisa, Viracandra Gosvamin, Radharamana Dasa Gosvami, Bhaktivinoda Thakkura, Vrndavana Tarkalamkara, Gaurakisora Gosvami, Aksaya Kumara Sastri, and Anupanarayana Tarkasiromani.

Acontribution of Janinism to Indian philosophy which seems most stimulating, inspiring, debated and controversial, one which provoked the most opposition from other systems of India, is beyond doubt the doctrine of multiplexity of reality (anekantavada). Indisputably it is also the most interesting Jaina contribution to Indian philosophy. The doctrine involved both a very particular realist ontology as well as a corresponding epistemology that was structured in such a way as to most aptly handle certain ontological presuppositions.The Jaina ontology entailed by the doctrine of multiplexity of reality (anekantavada) viewed the world structure as consisting of four interrelated aspects: substance (dravya), quality (guna), mode (paryaya) and ineffable, transient occurrence (vivarta, vartana, often overlooked in both Jaina expositions of the theory and in analyses carried out by modern researchers). Howerver, the point to emphasise is that things, especially when conceived as substances, were believed to preserve their identity and in this aspect they were immutable and permanent. At the same time, however, when conceived as modes, they appeared to change and transform continuously. This seemed to have led to contradictions in ontology. Besides, in order to explain the process of change, Jaina ontology also distinguished three modes of existence, that actually co-existed: origination (utpada, udaya), continued existence (sthiti, dhrauvya) and cessation, or disintegration (bhanga, vyaya, japavarga). These four closely corresponded to the Buddhist Sarvastivadaís and Abhidharmaís four (or three) conditioned factors, known as ëmarkersí (samskrtalaksana)óorigination (utpada), continuity (sthiti), deterioration (jara, vyaya) and extinction (bhanga, nirodha).Printed Pages: 432. 102134

Covering Jaina philosophy from where Volume Ten left off toward the end of the tenth century, this Volume covers 355 works of 99 Jain philosophers who lived between 1000 and 1300 A.D. The names of a number of famous Jaina authors are covered in the list along with summaries of many of their works. Piotr Balcerowicz' article on the Jaina theory of viewpoints or perspective (naya), which introduces this Volume, shows how that theory, set forth in the famous account of seven fold predication (saptapadarthi), avoids skepticism, contradiction, or violation of the law of excluded middle, while presenting a plausible, if complex, way of gauging reality.
