Dictionary of Buddhist Iconography, Vol. 4 (Dhyana-paramita-Gzuns.las.byun.bahi lha.mo Nor.rgyun.ma)
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8177420429; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
The Dictionary of Buddhist Iconography is an endeavour of half a century to identify, classify, describe and delineate the bewildering variation in Buddhist icons. It spans the last twenty centuries, and it is a comparative study of unprecedented geographic variations, besides the ever-evolving visualisations of great masters who introduced extraordinary plurality of divine forms in the dharanis and sadhanas. "The multiple forms of a theonym arise in varying contexts. For example, Hevajra of the Hevajra-tantra holds crania in his hands, while the Hevajra of the Samputa-tantra has weapons. Both are subdivided into four each on the planes of kaya, vak, citta and hrdaya, with two, four, eight and sixteen arms. The Dictionary classifies several such types of a deity and places each in its theogonic structure, specifies the earliest date of its occurrence (e.g. Amoghapasa appears in Chinese in AD 587), the earliest image, the direction in which it is placed in the specific quarter of the mandala, its classification, colour, crown or hairdo, ferocious or serene appearance, number of eyes and heads, hair standing up and /or flaming, number of arms and attributes held in them, consort, lord of the family (kulesa), and so on. The esoteric name, symbolic form (samaya), bija (hierogram), mantra, mudra and mandala are given in this Dictionary for the first time and on an extensive scale. The Sanskrit, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Tibetan, Mongolian, Manchu and other names are given under the main entry, as well as cross-referenced in their own alphabetic order. "The Dictionary details the characteristic attributes, chronology and symbolism of over twelve thousand main and minor deities. It reflects the extraordinary cultural, literary, aesthetic and spiritual achievements of several nations of Asia over two millennia. "It will help to identify the masterpieces along with the profusion of masters and divine beings around them. The last few decades have seen an exuberant flourishing of the study and popularisation of the patrimony of Buddhist art for its aesthetic magnificence. This Dictionary will add a dimension of precision and depth of perception to the visual tradition of paintings and sculptures. Printed Pages: 351 with illustrations. 013194

Life of Lord Buddha from Chinese Sutras and Illustrated in Woodcuts (Satapitaka Series: 627)
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8177420909; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
His Life of Lord Buddha is a reproduction of the Shih-chia ju-lai ying-hua shih-chi, a collection of important episodes in the life of Lord Buddha, cited from different Sutras translated into Chinese from the 3rd to the 13th century. The citations are illustrated on opposite pages, so that the pious could visualise the Dharma of the Tathagata. They are `Visual Dharma'. The Chinese has been translated into English. It was compiled by monk Pao-ch `eng during the Ming period. It was revised by Prince Yung-shan the grand the nephew of Emperor K`ang-hsi. He had new woodcuts done in 1787-93. The landscape, buildings, persons, city layouts, gardens, etc. are styled as was done in the 18th century. The simple lines, athirst for the beauty of the beyond, were to deepen the spiritual tone. A Chinese proverb says: 'a picture is a voiceless poem, a poem is a vocal picture'. The hieratic art of this volume is an evocation of the Chinese proverb in its powerful lines and in its tranquil sunyata of minimal art. It has been translated into English for the first time.

This second volume of the Dictionary of Buddhist Iconography shows the vast expanse, the temporal evolution of millennia and the emanation of the ever-evolving realm of the divine, the apparitions of the one into the many. The spontaneity of images unfolds into the store-consciousness (alaya-vijnana) of many countries of Asia.

Dictionary of Buddhist Iconography, Vol. 9 (Ober-e ober-e dayayci eke-Quricaqui ugei kobegun)
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8177420542; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
The Dictionary of Buddhist Iconography is an endeavour of half a century to identify, classify, describe and delineate the bewildering variation in Buddhist icons. It spans the last twenty centuries, and it is a comparative study of unprecedented geographic variations, besides the ever-evolving visualisations of great masters who introduced extraordinary plurality of divine forms in the dharanis and sadhanas. "The multiple forms of a theonym arise in varying contexts. For example, Hevajra of the Hevajra-tantra holds crania in his hands, while the Hevajra of the Samputa-tantra has weapons. Both are subdivided into four each on the planes of kaya, vak, citta and hrdaya, with two, four, eight and sixteen arms. The Dictionary classifies several such types of a deity and places each in its theogonic structure, specifies the earliest date of its occurrence (e.g. Amoghapasa appears in Chinese in AD 587), the earliest image, the direction in which it is placed in the specific quarter of the mandala, its classification, colour, crown or hairdo, ferocious or serene appearance, number of eyes and heads, hair standing up and /or flaming, number of arms and attributes held in them, consort, lord of the family (kulesa), and so on. The esoteric name, symbolic form (samaya), bija (hierogram), mantra, mudra and mandala are given in this Dictionary for the first time and on an extensive scale. The Sanskrit, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Tibetan, Mongolian, Manchu and other names are given under the main entry, as well as cross-referenced in their own alphabetic order. "The Dictionary details the characteristic attributes, chronology and symbolism of over twelve thousand main and minor deities. It reflects the extraordinary cultural, literary, aesthetic and spiritual achievements of several nations of Asia over two millennia. "It will help to identify the masterpieces along with the profusion of masters and divine beings around them.

Nispanna-Yogavali: Sanskrit and Tibetan Texts with English Translation (Satapitaka Series: 647)
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8177421425; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The Nispannayogavali (NSP) has been a major source for the identification and symbolism of the mandalas for the last sixty years. It was written by Abhayakaragupta who headed the great Vikramasila monastery. Born as the son of the King of Singala, he was ordained in the Sarvastivada tradition, and studied the Tantras at Nalanda and Vikramasila. Vajrayogini appeared to him and said: write an extensive ritual of mandalas. He authored a trilogy of texts on the mandalas. Among them the NSP elaborates the emanation (utpanna-krama) of the deities of 26 mandalas, details their attributes, mantras and bijas for meditation. It specifies the sanctified space in which a mandala is visualised, beginning with the complete sanctified area (vajra-panjara) to the vajra-rampart, protective circle, Mount Sumeru, the trigon and the pavilion in which the mandala emanates. The complete Sanskrit text has been corrected with the help of a Nepalese manuscript of 1200 AC, compared with the Tibetan text and translated into English for the first time. The Sanskrit text, its meticulous Tibetan rendering and English translation fill a long-felt need ever since B. Bhattacharyya's casual edition of the Sanskrit version appeared in 1949. It is a must for the history of Buddhist art, the living tradition of meditation on mandalas, and philosophy of Esoteric Buddhism. The Sanskrit text in Devanagari is followed by the Tibetan version in Tibetan script to facilitate a comparative study. The English translation grants access to the wider circle of art historians.

Xuanzang and the Silk Route
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd. In Association with Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121511860; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
China as we know is a great civilization and Xuanzang's (who is popularly known as Hsüan-tsang) visit to India was a great event. The noted Chinese traveler and Buddhist pilgrim, Xuanzang, reached India in AD 630, having undertaken an arduous journey across Central Asia. A Chinese emperor called him "the jewel of the empire." Nearly fourteen years of his life (from AD 630 to AD 644) were spent visiting Buddhist temples and monasteries, cities, and places of interest in the Indian subcontinent. He was a keen observer of men and affairs. Apart from being a devout monk, he has left behind a fascinating and authentic account of India's history, geography, economy, and society of the times when King Harsha (AD 606-47) ruled over northern India. This volume contains articles on the life and achievement of Xuanzang. Dharmamaster Xuanzang came to India particularly in search of Buddhist texts which were not available in China. He studied his favourite text Yogacarabhumisastra under the famous teacher Shilabhadra of Nalanda. He was a great recorded of historical sites of the Silk Route. His description of the Silk Route countries in Afghanistan and Gandhara are valuable for the political and cultural history of these lands. The study of Bamiyan monasteries and colossal Buddhas have inspired Art historians to make a thorough study of the Cultural history of Afghanistan. The articles in this present volume show, through a wide range of studies, not only Xuanzang's love and knowledge of Buddhism, but only an account of various countries and their cultural heritage.

The Four Themed Precious Garland
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8185102406; Softcover; New; 
To realise the beginningless purity and perfection of all reality as an indivisible unity of Voidness and appearance is to realise Dzog-ch'en, the Great Completeness. The lineage of this Mahayana system of Meditation traces from Shakyamuni Buddha and was taken from India to Tibet by such masters as Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava and Vimalamitra. It has been transmitted mainly through the Nying-ma Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and its oral teachings preserved unbroken until the present day. This text by Long-ch'en Ram-jam-pa (1303-1363), one of the greatest codifiers of the Dzog-ch'en teachings as witnessed by his trilogy Kindly Bent to Ease Us, is an exposition on the "Four Themes of Gam-popa," The Author of The Jewel Ornament of Liberation. It includes a survey of the nine vehicles to Enlightenment as travelled progressively through the sutra, Tantra and Dzog-ch'en modes of approach, as well as a description of the goal. This it does primarily by expounding the techniques utilised at each of these stages for removing confusion about the abiding nature of reality. Printed Pages: 55. 103586

The present volume comprising Lord Irwin's speeches and the addresses delivered before the two Central Legislative bodies, year by year, were composed with great care, so as to comprise ot only a record of events, principles. The Editor of the volume though anonymous has endeavoured throughout to make his selection as full and representative as possible.

It is well known that the subject of Education has been in a peculiar manner one in Lord Irwin has always taken deepest interest. The editor of the volume thought it best to turn to the Viceroy's educational speeches which had chiefly to do with the future dealing with the present conditions of Things in India. The epilogue at the end of the volume is the address given before Toronto University after Lord Irwin had completed his full five years of office as Viceroy of India. It contains a valuable summary of his Nature Thoughts on the problem of India as a whole.Printed Pages: 380. 105636

17479 Louis E. Fenech
The Sikh Zafar-Namah of Guru Gobind Singh: A Discursive Blade in the Heart of the Mughal Empire
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199931453; Paperback; New; 
Louis E. Fenech offers a compelling new examination of one of the only Persian compositions attributed to the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708): the Zafar-namah or 'Epistle of Victory.' Written as a masnavi, a Persian poem, this letter was originally sent to the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb (d. 1707) rebuking his most unbecoming conduct. Incredibly, Guru Gobind Singh's letter is included today within the Sikh canon, one of only a very small handful of Persian-language texts granted the status of Sikh scripture. As such, its contents are sung on special Sikh occasions. Perhaps equally surprising is the fact that the letter appears in the tenth Guru's book or the Dasam Granth in the standard Gurmukhi script (in which Punjabi is written) but retains its original Persian language, a vernacular few Sikhs know. Drawing out the letter's direct and subtle references to the Iranian national epic, the Shah-namah, and to Shaikh Sa'di's thirteenth-century Bustan, Fenech demonstrates how this letter served as a form of Indo-Islamic verbal warfare, ensuring the tenth Guru's moral and symbolic victory over the legendary and powerful Mughal empire. Through analysis of the Zafar-namah, Fenech resurrects an essential and intriguing component of the Sikh tradition: its Islamicate aspect. Salient Features First comprehensive examination in English of Guru Gobind Singh's letter About the Author Louis E. Fenech is Professor of South and Sikh History at the University of Northern Iowa.

17483 Louis I. Kahn
Between Silence and Light
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 159030604X; Softcover; New; 
In the development of contemporary architecture, no one has had a greater influence than Louis I. Kahn, whose many buildings include the Salk Institute, the Yale Study Center, and the Exeter Library. He is remembered, however, not only as a master builder, but also as one of the most important and creative thinkers of the twentieth century.For Kahn, the study of architecture was the study of human beings, their highest aspirations and most profound truths. He searched for forms and materials to express the subtlety and grandeur of life. In his buildings we see the realization of his vision: luminous surfaces that evoke a fundamental awe, silent courtyards that speak of the expansiveness and the sanctity of the spirit, monumental columns and graceful arches that embody dignity and strength.Updated with a new preface, this classic work is a major statement on human creativity, showing us Louis Kahn as architect, visionary, and poet.

Originally published in French, The Civilization in Ancient India by Louis Renou deals with various aspects of polity, life and thought in ancient India. Based mainly on the great body of Indian lore supplemented by the data from epigraphical, literary as well as other sources, this work encapsulates vast information about India's ancient past covering the period up to the middle of the seventh century. In the four preliminary chapters in the first part of the book is given a succinct survey of history, literature, religion and philosophical speculations. The second part deals respectively with caste, family, elements of civil law, penal law, the state, politics and war, economics and public and private life. The facts culled from the substantial data marshalled by the author on these different aspects have indeed made this work invaluable alike for the serious student and researcher. A brief chronology of the period and bibliography on different subjects discussed in the book have added to its value. Printed Pages: 205. 001375

India and its Native Princes: Travels in Central India and in the Presidencies of Bombay and Bengal
Asian Educational Services; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8120618874; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is the effort of the author, a noted French author of his time, who traveled between 1864 and 1865, and then studied in India for 6 years. The geographical of this book is vast, and covers all of western, central, and northern India upto Delhi. There are short notices of Panjab, the Himalaya mountains, Bihar, and Bengal too. The title of the book lays bare its strain : the author wanted to visit and see for himself the courts and the countries that the native chiefs ruled over, and what was their mode of living, and condition of the civilisation. With this view he undertook his travels and visited as many courts as he could. All throughout the book the reader will find insightful notices of the pomp and pageantry, the civility, the politics and intrigues, the popular history, acute descriptions of monuments and buildings – both inhabited and the ones in ruins, description of festivals, native customs and beliefs, the social order, etc. Accompanying the text is a treasure of over 300 engravings that illustrate the running narrative, and 6 maps. This book is a reprint of the 1876 edition.Printed Pages: 596. 102872

17494 Louis Rousselet
India and Its Native Princes
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8192091201; Hardcover; New; New; 
From the early 19th century when the East India Company began to consolidate its rule, the princes were often seen as one of the most useful allies of the empire. Later, after the enactment of the Act of 1935, conservative opinion in Great Britain saw them as an instrument for thwarting the federation proposals and thereby maintaining British power at the centre.India and its Native Princes is an exquisitely detailed study replete with stories and vivid descriptions of persons, events, and places. It carries photographs of palaces, forts, religious places, and animals, and of the tribal people. A picture of the three Gonds is stunning. Sadly, some of the monuments imaged and represented in this book no longer exist. As a travelogue, it is instructive, meticulously researched and written fluently. Originally published by Bickers & Son, in 1882 the book covers Central India, a neglected region in British India, and the Bombay and Bengal Presidencies. Princely India is exhaustively covered–Gwalior, Bhopal and Hyderabad.Printed Pages: 638 with 231 b/w illustrations & 3 maps. 106575

Temple Potters of Puri
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2013; 818999509X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The first to describe in detail a community of potters working for the Jagannatha Temple in Puri, eastern India, Temple Potters of Puri explores the role of the temple servant and how it affects the potters’ understanding of their work and of themselves. As a pilgrimage centre of national importance, supported by the patronage of successive regional dynasties and by fervent popular belief, the Jagannatha Temple requires earthenware in great quantities for the creation and distribution of the sacred food that is an integral feature of daily ritual and pilgrimage.Several hundred potters participate as temple servants in maintaining the temple’s ritual cycle by performing their divinely assigned task. This study observes the potters’ technical prowess, sustained by devotion, but also examines the tensions within their relationships to more powerful temple servants and authorities. The role of the potter as temple servant is at once glorious, as demonstrated by texts and personal interpretations of the potters’ divinely-appointed service, and pathetic, as shown in the brutality of caste-based hierarchy and cash-based exchange penetrating the modern temple’s daily operations. The accompanying DVD shows the potters at work and records their skills and products as well as the annual festival that celebrates their role as temple servants. Printed Pages: 498 with 268 colour photographs & 3 maps. 112005
