18201 Lloyd I. Rudolph & Susanne Hoeber Rudolph (Authors)
Romanticism’s Child: An Intellectual History of James Tod’s Influence on Indian History and Historiography
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2017; 0199465894; Hardcover; New; New; 
The fascination of Colonel James Tod, one of the earliest colonial ethnographers, with the cultural practices, communities and histories of the people of Rajasthan led to a meticulous compilation of information about the region and its people, whom he deeply admired. His two-volume masterwork, Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan, published in London in 1829 and 1832, inspired generations of popular renderings of the past, including nationalist and vernacular imaginations in the whole of South Asia. Tod’s narrative style reflects the influence of Romanticism, medieval feudalism, and civilizational progress starkly at variance with the official colonial view of the pre-British past of India. What was the source of this ‘romanticism’ of Colonel Tod? Susanne and Lloyd Rudolph contextualize the formation of Tod’s ideas and their reception through documents written by or to Tod, which help in situating and contextualizing his life work. Interestingly, the second part of the book collects the exchange between Tod and James Mill in the British parliament over the administration of British territories in India with Rajputana as a case study. This book thus significantly contributes to the exploration of knowledge-formation in colonial India and its contemporary influence. Printed Pages: 256. 111562

18202 Lloyd I. Rudolph and John Kurt Jacobsen (eds)
Experiencing the State
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195672437; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This volume on the state departs from a conventional analysis that universalizes and standardizes what the state is, does, and means. The authors, in this volume, mean to engage state and stateness as it is encountered in everyday life. They locate the state in time, space, and circumstance so that it is contingent and evocative rather than definitive and authoritative. The study discusses what we may think or say about the state, what images are evoked, the formative discourse dealing with the state and its various manifestations through social and cultural forms. This non-essentialist perspective has eight essays which deal directly with India and South Asia with contributors ranging from James Scott, Arundhati Roy, Sudipta Kaviraj, Lloyd Rudolph, Phil Oldenberg, and Paul Brass.

18203 Lloyd I. Rudolph and Susanne Hoeber Rudolph
Explaining Indian Democracy: A Fifty-year Perspective, 1956-2006: Volume I: The Realm of Ideas: Inquiry and Theory
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195693647; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The essays in the three-volume series, Explaining Indian Democracy: A Fifty-Year Perspective, 1956–2006, span over five decades of the Rudolphs’ scholarship on Indian politics. The first published essay analyses the results of one of the first random sample surveys done in India. The last argues for methodological pluralism and ‘situated knowledge’ in American political science as against the universal methodological and knowledge claims of rational choice. The essays in The Realm of Ideas: Inquiry and Theory, like those in its companion volumes, The Realm of Institutions: State Formation and Institutional Change and The Realm of the Public Sphere: Identity and Policy, contextualize and assess the democratic experience in India. The chapters in The Realm of Ideas, the first of the three volumes, explore how modes of inquiry, kinds of knowledge, construction of categories, and historical context shape political analysis and explanation. They also critique key concepts such as political culture, modernization, civil society, and orientalism and apply them to questions of social change. 022639

18206 Lloyd M. Field
Business and the Buddha: Doing Well by Doing Good
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 0861715446; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
All businesses want to do well, but can they also do good? Lloyd Field says yes, and moreover, no business can afford to focus simply on ?doing well.??? Increasingly, public assessment of a business???s worth must take into account its consideration of shared human values. That doesn???t mean a business can???t or should not compete; it means that investing in efforts to build a better society can, on many levels, be an asset. In this book, Field lays out the guidelines for putting social responsibility, both corporate and individual, into practice without sacrificing profits. Drawing from traditional Buddhist teachings, Field shows how, with attention to ethics, skillful means, and corporate responsibility, entrepreneurs and decision-makers can achieve new levels of happiness and security both inside the company and out, while acting as a powerful force for positive global change.

New World of Indigenous Resistance: Noam Chomsky and Voices from North, South, and Central America
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 812504325X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
After centuries of colonization, the ongoing struggle to preserve communal knowledge, rituals, language, traditions, and teaching and learning practices has taken on even more significance in the increasingly standardized world of globalization. For many indigenous societies, protecting community-based customs has involved the rejection of state-provided education, raising a series of interconnected issues regarding autonomy, modernity and cultural sustainability. In New World of Indigenous Resistance, these questions are approached from multiple perspectives by means of an innovative exchange between linguist and human rights advocate Noam Chomsky, and more than twenty scholars, activists and educators from across the Americas. In response to Chomsky’s ideas, voices from Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, the United States, and Uruguay draw from their first-hand experience and scholarship, speaking to, with, and at times against Chomsky’s views.

South Asia Nation Building and Federalism
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382652274; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Multiple paths to nation building in South Asia" is the most popular and controversial subject. Identity-based politics, whether one rejects or accepts, is equally a pressing problem for the countries of the region. The traditional route to national integration and political order is being questioned by the emergence of newer trends in national politics of each country of the region. Questions of minorities, ethnic, regional and suppressed groups (dalits and other highly marginalized communities) need to be tackled by taking appropriate policies so that such groups do not develop the feeling of deprivation. If inclusive democracy and empowerment of marginalized communities can become one of the positive aspects of nation building project, federalism has become yet another design for some countries. Nepal's aspiration for federalism is not the product of well-thought out design, but it has become imperative for nation building in course of time. India and Pakistan are likely to increase some more federal units to address the demands of peoples residing in respective areas making nation building as an ongoing process.Printed Pages: 170. 103192

Dictionary of Buddhist Iconography, Vol. 10 (RA-Sakyamitra)
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8177420550; 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 one 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: 302 with numerous illustrations. 013195

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.

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: 319 with numerous illustrations. 013192

Thousands of index cards, microfilms, photographs, painted scrolls, statues, woodcuts, line drawings, sketches in manuscripts and xylographs, of Buddhist deities have been used in this Dictionary.

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
