Reform and Renewal in South Asian Islam: The Chishti-Sabris in 18th–19th Century North India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199469342; Hardcover; New; New; 
Of the many Sufi orders that have operated in South Asia, the Chishti order is the oldest and the most popular. This book examines the traditions, rituals, experiences, and legacy of the Sa¯bri branch of the Chishti order. Challenging the notion of Sufism as an ossified relic of the past, it presents evidence of growing interaction, accommodation, and intermingling within Sufi orders. It also highlights the active involvement of the Chishti-Sa¯bris in the much discussed reformist upsurge in north India and explains how they addressed questions posed by colonial rule while still adhering to their mystical heritage.The role of networks that connected Sufi scholars in small towns (qasbahs) with those of Delhi is also examined. These connections, it is argued, moulded the religious ethos of such towns and made them incubators of Sufi reform. By locating Sufi traditions and institutions within the discourse of Islamic scholars (‘ulama¯), the book contends that the boundaries often drawn between ‘Sufi’ and ‘scholarly’ Islam were in reality far more blurred and porous than is admitted in the literature on modern reformist movements.

The Intelligence of Tradition in Rajput Court Painting
Yale University Press; London; 0300142293; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 29 Cm 
The genre of Rajput painting flourished between the 16th and 19th centuries in the kingdoms that ruled what is now the Indian state of Rajasthan (place of rajas). Rajput paintings depicted the nobility and court spectacle as well as scenes from Krishna’s life, the Hindu epics, and court poetry. Many Rajput kingdoms developed distinct styles, though they shared common conventions. This important book surveys the overall tradition of Indian Rajput painting, while developing new methods to ask unprecedented questions about meaning.Through a series of in-depth studies, Aitken shows how traditional formal devices served as vital components of narrative meaning, expressions of social unity, and rich sources of intellectual play. Supported by beautiful full-color illustrations of rare and often inaccessible paintings, Aitken’s study spans five centuries, providing a comprehensive and innovative look at the Rajasthan’s court painting traditions and their continued relevance to contemporary art.

A Magic World: New Visions of Indian Painting
The Marg Foundation; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789383243150; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 25 x 32 Cm 
In the 100 years since Ananda Coomaraswamy wrote his seminal Rajput Painting, the field of Indian painting studies has gone from a period of explosive discovery to a deepening of knowledge about individual artists and workshops. More recently, scholars have also begun to probe artists’ and patrons’ creative decisions and have entered into extensive conversation with South Asian cultural studies in general. They reconsider Coomaraswamy’s distinction between “Rajput”and Mughal painting and focus more on the connections between these two worlds, analyzing the complex meanings these paintings might have held for their artists, patrons and viewers. This celebratory volume probes the cultural preoccupations of 16th- to early 20th-century Rajput, Mughal and Deccan India, and provides delightful new insights into the magic world of Indian painting. Molly Emma Aitken is Associate Professor in the Art Department at the City College of New York and the Art History Department at the CUNY Graduate Center. She has published extensively on Mughal and Rajput painting. Printed Pages: 129 with numerous colour illustrations. 111499

Chanted Narratives: The Living 'Katha-Vachana' Tradition
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8124601828; Hardcover; New; New; 
Every region/community of the world has its share of oral creativity, in varying measures though, and, accordingly, has its own legacy of "chanted narratives": epical, historical, mythical, romantic or even ritualistic. Such narratives have long survived in the collective memory of its people, having been handed down from generation to generation. Confronted, however, by the "cornucopian techno-centrism" of today's life, these oral narratives are on their way out everywhere - like many other vibrant cultural phenomena.Highlighting why we need to preserve this intangible heritage of mankind, the volume offers a fascinating study of "chanted narratives" from different regions of India and parts of Southeast Asia. Essentially a multi-author work, it explores the nature of orality and its various attendant aspects like composition, performance, transmission modes, socio-economic context, and the relationship that exists between its performer and the audience. Also addressing methodological issues concerning the existing definitions and terminologies, the authors argue for a paradigm shift in the academic discourse on orality and oral cultures.Carrying twenty-four contributions of leading scholars from France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Nepal, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and UK, the book not only provides theoretical insights into the complex nature of orality, but sets out a rich repertoire of chanted narratives as well.Printed Pages: 297. 101684

Muslim Communities in Medieval Konkan
Sundeep Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8175741260; Hardcover; New; New; 
An attempt is made to study the Muslim Communities in Medieval Konkan dating from the earliest known arrivals of foreign Muslims on the Western coastland in the Konkan littoral, until the end of the nineteenth century. The present study seeks to identify the socio-intellectual and politico-religious roles played by them on the stage of history; and to appreciate their contribution to various other aspects of culture co-related to this, are the assessments made of the commercial activities and progressions of the early Perso-Arab traders by placing them within the periphery of religious geography. The Project involves in its construction a study of the rudiments of Islamic culture and its interaction over the year with the `indigenous acculturation through a series of cultural symbols and synthesisation. It initiates a discussion on the group claiming foreign origin, class relationship and ethnic identities. The souces at our disposal help us the construction of Muslim ethnic communities which persisted in different phases emerging from the Middle Eastern cultural setting sharing basic cultural values of early Islamic society. This book will be of great interest not only for historians but sociologists, as well as economists and others. Printed Pages: 313. 112756

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9515831881; New; 
Uttrycket ide e/i är en praktisk liten sträng som används på många olika sätt i samtal på svenska. Samtalsdeltagare börjar gärna sina turer med ide e/i eftersom det visar för de andra att personen i fråga vill ha turen, utan att egentligen styra in de andra deltagarnas tankebanor på något specifikt. Men strängen ide e/i kan också användas inne i en längre tur eller i slutet av en tur, och då för alldeles specifika funktioner: inne i turen för att parentetiskt specificera eller ge ett omdöme om något som omtalats tidigare i turen, som avslutning på en längre tur för att antyda att talaren har en åsikt om det tidigare sagda.

21321 Mona Siddiqui
The Good Muslim: Reflections on Classical Islamic Law and Theology
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 1107610699; Softcover; New; 
In this thought-provoking book Mona Siddiqui reflects upon key themes in Islamic law and theology. These themes which range through discussions about friendship divorce drunkenness love slavery and ritual slaughter offer fascinating insights into Islamic ethics and the way in which arguments developed in medieval juristic discourse. Pre-modern religious works contained a richness of thought hesitation and speculation on a wide range of topics which were socially relevant but also presented intellectual challenges to the scholars for whom God's revelation could be understood in diverse ways. These subjects remain relevant today for practising Muslims and scholars of Islamic law and religious studies. Mona Siddiqui is an astute and articulate interpreter who relays complex ideas about the Islamic tradition with great clarity. Her book charts her own journey through the classical texts and reflects upon how the principles expounded there have guided her own thinking teaching and research.Printed Pages: 240. 101480

Architecture in Medieval India: Forms, Contexts, Histories
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178242281; Softcover; New; 
From the first half of the nineteenth century, the architectural history of medieval India has been the subject of diverse books, essays and miscellaneous writings. The present book pulls together the most significant of these writings, revealing the impressive array of historical ideas about India's past that has emerged through the study of its monuments. The writings reproduced here are located by the editor within the specific intellectual, political and socio-cultural contexts within which they emerged and were elaborated. By this means, Monica Juneja makes this anthology a major historiographical intervention which traces the colonial emergence and nationalist development of, as well as contemporary advances in, the discipline of architectural history both within India and in relation to art history in the West. Professor Juneja's introduction also examines the intellectual importance of architectural history for all historians, arguing that the study of India's medieval architecture needs to be made integral to every history of conquest, state-building, and the movements of populations and traditions across the subcontinent. She demonstrates that ideas about buildings and their histories have frequently been polemical and instrumental: they have been politically deployed to construct or fabricate a collective past. They have been used to provide symbolic meanings which have helped subjugate or unify heterogeneous communities and nations. In short, the architectural history of India's contentiously misnamed 'Muslim' period is revealed as the site of tensions between Hindus and Muslims, colonialists and nationalists, traditionalists and postmodernists.Printed Pages: 666. 101968

China: Military Modernisation and Strategy
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502687; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
China’s strides towards the creation of a formidable military posture, backed by strong economic growth, demonstrate a resolve to assert its claim towards becoming an Asian superpower. By opting to showcase its military prowess to the world, the Chinese armed forces have signalled that they have come a long way from what was essentially a rustic and bucolic ‘Red Army’ that waged a ‘People’s War’ six decades ago. The modernisation programme undertaken by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) can be interpreted as the foundation of deterrence to attain the objectives of military strategy. Today, the Chinese armed forces are preparing to fight small-scale, high-intensity, regional combat and military operations in the future. At the same time, China seeks to deter or prevent their outbreak decisively through the possession of an adequate deterrent force and the determination to use that force. Robust military modernisation of the PLA represents a contrasting facet to the tall claims made by China, in so far as its ‘peaceful rise’ campaign is concerned. It is difficult to reconcile these rather opposing, while equally reinforcing, ideas. As a consequence, the entire debate on the impending “China threat” (Zhongguo weixie) theory has progressively gained significance within the Asian continent and beyond.Printed Pages: 366. 104374

Chinese WMD Proliferation in Asia: US Response
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8190743198; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Through the Cold War years, the US nuclear strategy and arms control policies demonstrated diminutive concern over China’s nuclear capabilities primarily since it did not figure as a major factor in the US nuclear calculus which, in any case, remained centred on Soviet nuclear arsenals. However, the end of the Cold War witnessed China increasing its regional influence on the plank of rising Chinese economic and military power and growing diplomatic and political interchange abroad. From Washington’s perspective, Beijing showed a darker side in its dealings in the realm of proliferation and technology transfer. Of greatest concern to Washington was the documented Chinese behaviour contributing to the spread of technology relating to the weapons of mass destruction (WMD) along with their means of delivery to states that were a cause of concern to Washington.This book analyses these issues in the backdrop of the changing trends in the American and Chinese conceptions of security in the post-Cold War age. Although China claims to abide by non-proliferation norms, riding on a campaign to garner a greater international image, its participation has been tarnished on many accounts when it has violated the terms and conditions of non-proliferation arrangements. While Washington was critically vocal regarding China’s contribution to the nuclear and missile capabilities of nations such as North Korea and Iran, it was conspicuously soft on the similar issue vis-à-vis Pakistan and the nuclear black market web woven by disgraced Pakistani nuclear scientist AQ Khan. These developments compel us to ponder over whether a few countries can be trusted with WMD and their means of delivery, while others cannot, and this trust would ultimately depend on, and consequently shift, as American attitudes, interests and policies change—thus, setting the theme of the book.Printed Pages: 264. 104430

Social Inclusion of Ethnic Communities in Contemporary Nepal
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904589; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Social Inclusion of Ethnic Communities in Contemporary Nepal focuses on the dynamics of ethnic identities and movement in South Asian states in a comparative framework. As we witness a series of explosive ethnic revivals across the globe, this study investigates the issues around ethnicity that have come to occupy centre stage in Nepals contemporary political and development discourse. Nepal is at the crossroads of state building. The Constituent Assembly is now looking into the modalities of establishing a multi-cultural, multi-social, multi-linguistic, multi-religious and multi-ethnic federal state. In the aftermath of the April 2006 Jana Andolan II and the commitment of the ruling political alliance to restructuring Nepal along federal republican lines, the assessment of Nepals ethnic question from multiple perspectives like political, sociological, economic and spatial has acquired a new urgency. Ethnic identity is only one part of the problem of ethnicity in Nepal. Federalism therefore has to be conceived of as an exercise in addressing the multiplicity of issues that form the agenda of Nepals development, so that a politically, socially and economically integrated, dynamic and progressive Nepal emerges from the shadows of the past this work includes an intensive analysis of facts, figures and particulars collected from available records and surveys. One of the aims of the study is to assess the defining ethnic identity among the Limbus, centred on a case in an urban area in the Kathmandu Valley. This work is mainly based on qualitative data but quantitative data has also been used to measure various aspects of the community like the level of educational, economy etc. This volume will be an invaluable guide for the scholars of federalism in Nepal while also educating the lay reader in general.Printed Pages: 480. 104291

Censorship and Sexuality in Bombay Cinema
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243458; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
India produces an impressive number of films each year in a variety of languages. Here, Monika Mehta breaks new ground by analyzing Hindi films and exploring the censorship of gender and heterosexuality in Bombay cinema. She studies how film censorship on various levels makes the female body and female sexuality pivotal in constructing national identity, not just through the films themselves but also through the heated debates that occur in newspapers and other periodicals. The standard claim is that the state dictates censorship and various prohibitions, but Mehta explores how relationships among the state, the film industry, and the public illuminate censorship’s role in identity formation, while also examining how desire, profits, and corruption are generated through the act of censoring. Committed to extending a feminist critique of mass culture in the global south, Mehta situates the story of censorship in a broad social context and traces the intriguing ways in which the heated debates on sexuality in Bombay cinema actually produce the very forms of sexuality they claim to regulate. She imagines afresh the theoretical field of censorship by combining textual analysis, archival research, and qualitative fieldwork. Her analysis reveals how central concepts of film studies, such as stardom, spectacle, genre, and sound, are employed and (re)configured within the ambit of state censorship, thereby expanding the scope of their application and impact.

Guide to the Ajanta Paintings: Vol. 2: Devotional and Ornamental Paintings
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510848; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 31 Cms x 23 Cms 
The paintings in the Buddhist caves of Ajanta (first century BC and fifth century AD) convey unique insights into the life and beliefs of ancient Indians. Alongside, the paintings of Buddhist legends, which aimed to convey Buddhist ethics, the caves also contain scores of non-narrative paintings. Many of them depict the Buddha, the Bodhisatvas, or other Buddhist themes, but the greater portion is made up of images that are only loosely connected to the Buddhist faith: they show lucky charms and auspicious scenes from the worlds of the genies and gods, who showered humans with material wealth rather than assisting them on the path of Nirvana. The book presents line drawings of many of these devotional and ornamental paintings, together with brief summaries of their interpretations. On the basis of literary references, many of the scenes and symbols are identified here for the first time. Printed Pages: 43 with 264 line drawings. 033044

Interrogating Development: State, Displacement and Popular Resistance in North East India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761935754; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book, the first in a series on the North-East, focuses on development-induced displacement of population in the region in the post-colonial period. Despite state-sponsored development initiatives, the North East still remains highly underdeveloped and politically disturbed. Various development projects initiated by the state led to massive displacement of population within the region, which has virtually gone unnoticed. The author has made use of extensive empirical data to document this massive displacement. Recently, the Government of India had decided to construct 145 mega dams to tap the hydroelectric potential of the region in order to convert the North- East into India's power house. Fearing negative effects like massive displacement of population, environmental degradation and the erosion of the rich biodiversity of the region, people at the grassroots level have built up resistance movements against such mega projects. This is a significant shift in the politics of the region, which had been ethnocentric so far. Emergence of popular resistance outside the conventional party system, based on new political cleavages is strengthening the democratic consciousness of the people living in these areas, which marks a significant shift in the politics of the region.

How Zen Became Zen: The Dispute Over Enlightenment and the Formation of Chan Buddhism in Song-Dynasty China
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8121512123; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
How Zen Became Zen takes a novel approach to understanding one of the most crucial developments in Zen Buddhism: the dispute over the nature of enlightenment that erupted within the Chinese Chan (Zen) school in the twelfth century. The famous Linji (Rinzai) Chan master Dahui Zonggao (1089–1163) railed against “heretical silent illumination Chan” and strongly advocated kanhua (koan) meditation as an antidote. In this fascinating study, Morten Schlütter shows that Dahui’s target was the Caodong (Soto) Chan tradition that had been revived and reinvented in the early twelfth century, and that silent meditation was an approach to practice and enlightenment that originated within this “new” Chan tradition. Schlütter has written a refreshingly accessible account of the intricacies of the dispute, which is still reverberating through modern Zen in both Asia and the West. Dahui and his opponents’ arguments for their respective positions come across in this book in as earnest and relevant a manner as they must have seemed almost nine hundred years ago. Although much of the book is devoted to illuminating the doctrinal and soteriological issues behind the enlightenment dispute, Schlütter makes the case that the dispute must be understood in the context of government policies toward Buddhism, economic factors, and social changes. He analyzes the remarkable ascent of Chan during the first centuries of the Song dynasty, when it became the dominant form of elite monastic Buddhism, and demonstrates that secular educated elites came to control the critical transmission from master to disciple (“procreation” as Schlütter terms it) in the Chan School.

This volume, of revised versions of papers presented at a meeting in Tel Aviv University, aims to draw the attention of Western scholars and the public to the medieval and early modern past of Daghestan, when that region was not only Muslim but fully intergrated into the cultural world of Islam.

This volume, the third in the series on Daghestan, contains thirteen papers enhancing awareness of Daghestan´s rich heritage as a major center of Islamic scholarship and of the immense quantity of manuscripts. The book opens with a more general review on Daghestan philology, a memorial essay to Prof. Gammer, who sadly passed away in 2013.

21381 Mother Teresa
Everything Starts from Prayer
Full Circle; New Delhi, India; 8176210153; Softcover; New; 
“Using this book on prayer, please remember that Mother Teresa always prayed with her actions, her life. Mind, speech, and body in perfect oneness, that is the solid ground of authentic meditation. The moment you star praying that way, peace, love, and transformation begin to take place, within yourself and around you. You do not have to wait for the result in the future. Mother Teresa says, ”The fruit of prayer is faith, love, service, and peace. All of these take place in the present moment. Enjoy praying with her.” — Thich Nhat Hanh, Author of Living Buddha, Living Christ“Mother Teresa was one of the great spiritual servants of our era, whose simple wisdom expressed untold depths of devotion. In this treasury of her thoughts on prayer, she offers the world another blessing.” — President Jimmy Carter, Author of Living Faith“Mother Teresa's life was a living prayer. Her words remind us of her connection with God and how all of us can reach Him as she did.” — Marianne Williamson, Author of Illuminated Prayers“A jewel of a book — Everything Starts from Prayer is a must for believers of all faiths and for seekers everywhere.” — Maurice Friedman, Author of The Wisdom of the Heart: Religion and Human wholeness“This book’s contents and its title say it all. Whatever you are looking for starts with prayer. Hopefully you will read and learn that true prayer is not about personal desires, needs, or religions. Mother Teresa is a role model for each of us. Pray we may become what she was, and heal the world by using prayer to lead us on the path to spirituality and God.” — Bernie Siegel, M.D., Author of Love, Medicine and Miracles.“Somewhere, Mother Teresa must be smiling.” Larry Dossey, From the Foreword to Everything Starts from Prayer. 109930

Sunyata: The Essence of Mahayana Spirituality
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121508452; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
An attempt has been made to explain as to what were the essential causes that led to the rise of the Mahayana, and, upon its emergence, how it tried to fulfill the religious aspirations and hopes of its adherents by removing such barriers as would prevent the ordinary people from enjoying the salvific peace of the Dharma which the Buddha, upon the attainment of enlightenment, had proclaimed to the masses of India. The Mahayanists carried out successfully the salvific mission of the Buddha by giving equal opportunity to both the religious and laity insofar as the ultimate soteriological goal of liberation from bondage was concerned. One of the ways of accomplishing this religious task was to deify the Buddha, and in doing so the Mahayanists thereby transformed Buddhism into a religion of devotion. This devotional spirituality will ultimately find its fullest expression in the compassion of a Bodhisattva. No more would a true Mahayanist seek his own salvation; rather he would work, out of deep compassion, for the salvation of others. It is this altruistic spirituality which permeates the ethos of Mahayanism. At the philosophical level it discovered the limitations of reason, and so offered a sound critique of all those systems of thought, whether Buddhist or Hindu, which adhered to pluralistic realism. Taking into consideration the doctrine of dependent origination, it found out that all phenomenal originates have arisen not by themselves, but by depending upon various causes and conditions. In relation to knowledge it would mean that knowledge itself is dependant upon the knower and the known. From this discovery the conclusion was arrived at: anything that arises dependently is destitute of any intrinsic nature. In philosophical terms it means that phenomenal entities are empty of any nature. It is this concept of "emptiness" which would be viewed as being identical with reality. The knowledge of reality as emptiness is not arrived at through wisdom. Thus it is compassion and wisdom which constitute the essence of Mahayana spirituality. Printed Pages:414. 039760

The Buddhist View of Knowledge and Reality
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121511968; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Buddha, while synthesizing the competing religious ideologies of brŒhmaÄism and ÜramaÄism, envisioned such a religious goal which, both at the theoretical and practical levels, would follow the Middle Way, and in terms of which would be abandoned both philosohical and religious extremism. Thus the Middle Way of the Buddha would avoid such philosophical and ethical extremism as is enshrined by such concepts as, for example, eternalism and nihilism, hedonism and asceticism. The purpose of this doctrine of the Middle Way was not to succumb to any extreme viewpoint, whether philosophical or ethical. Even though Buddha may have claimed that he had established no school of thought, it cannot, however, be denied that he expressed certain philosophical views which, with the passage of time, attained such complexity as would give rise to both critical philosophy and to idealism. Upon passing away of the Buddha, the Buddhist thinkers, initially, interpreted the soteriological message in realistic terms, which, however, became quite complex with the emergence of SarvŒstivŒda and SautrŒntika schools of thought.The philosophical realism of early Buddhism was abandoned, upon the emergence of MahŒyŒna, in favour of critical philosophy of NŒgŒrjuna and idealistic philosophy of AsaÆga-Vasubandhu. These and such-like questions had to be faced by the Buddhist thinkers-and the present study of these issues has been dealt with both at ontological and epistemological levels. Thus the present study addresses itself to these questions in a manner as would lead to proper appreciation of Buddhist philosophical thought. Printed Pages: 334. 022736

The Transcendental Non-Dualism of Trika Saivism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121512697; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The basic principle of Kashmir Saivism is that consciousness alone is real, and that which is not consciousness has no reality of its own, but is contingent on account of its being the expression of consciousness. It accepts a priori that consciousness alone is real, whereas what we cognize or perceive is nothing but what comes out of and from consciousness. The source of this thinking lies in the fact that it is in and through consciousness that we are empowered to engage in the process of reflective thinking, and due to it we become aware of what we are. This personal awareness gives rise to such reasoning which compels us to think that, a part from the body, there is existing within us a thinking principle, namely, the self. It is the inner self which is identified with the absolute—and the Absolute is nothing but consciousness. Whatever we know or experience is because of consciousness. In the absence of consciousness, everything would be insentient, and there would prevail utter darkness of non-knowledge. It is in the context of the thinking that Kashmir Saivism has developed the philosophy of transcendental non-dualism that is theistically oriented, which maintains that the Absolute is none else than the core of myself. It is this self as the Absolute that expresses itself in and through the universe, which is to say that the phenomena are but the appearances of consciousness. Since everything is contained in consciousness, so nothing is different from consciousness. In this manner is established such a form of non-dualism that is both logical and experiential.

From Dualism to Non-Dualism: A Study of the Evolution of Saivite Thought
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8121512085; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The religious history of India has expressed itself in terms of what has come to be known as the Great Tradition and the Little Tradition. It is the synthesis of these two traditions that has given rise, through the process of evolution, to the present-day Hinduism. It is with this absorptive spirit of Hinduism with which this book deals by pointing out as to how Saivism, though belonging to the Little Tradition, has evolved as part and parcel of Brahmanism. While being absorbed by Brahmanism, Saivism at the same time has maintained its personal identity in terms of its scriptures and spiritual practices. Although a part of Brahmanism, yet Saivism itself has so evolved in terms of metaphysical thought as to parallel the larger pattern of metaphysical thought of Hinduism in general. Thus the Saivite thought, while following the metaphysical footprints of Brahamanism, ultimately has climaxed in the non-dualistic recognitive philosophy of the Trika. Printed Pages: 254. 030620

The Philosophical and Practical Aspects of Kasmira Saivism: A Study of Trika Thought and Practice
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121512328; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The philosophical thought of Trika Saivism of Kashmir adumbrates a new dawn in the religious as well as philosophical history of India. It is so rich in its metaphysical thought as to be universal on account of it being open-minded and synthetic. It recognizes the validity of philosophical thought of every school to the extent that the truth is apprehended and recognized. It is because of this synthetic approach that Trika Saivism has successfully wedded realism with idealism. It is idealistic to the extent that it maintains that the world is nothing but the emanation of consciousness. It is realistic to the measure that it concludes that the emanation of the objective world is real. It rejects the Vedantic view of the Absolute as being mere light of consciousness. Instead, it speaks of the Absolute as being both the light of consciousness as well as cognitive self-awareness. It is on the basis of this philosophical thought that the Trika thinkers have equated the Absolute with absolute Freedom. Thus, the Absolute of the Trika is not an inactive or impersonal principle, but it is as active as the God of theism. It is an absolutism that has theistic orientation characterized by Freedom. Above all, it gave birth to a new school of philosophy, namely, the Pratyabhijna School. Printed Pages: 288. 037245
