Srimadbhagavatatattvabinduh
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8187418818; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Srimadbhagavatatattvabinduh is A Fine collection of original and research articles written on different themes dealt with in Srimadbhagavata Mahapurana, one of the very well known and highly respected Indian Classics. However, the modern western so called researchers and writers, with narrow outlook, have made it controversial with regard to its contents and the time of its writing. The present work, through its various research articles, presents a rational, comprehensive and most valid view about these controversies.In fact, Srimadbhagavata is a wonderful and purely spiritual treatise dealing with deep mysteries relating to the ultimate reality or God and his devotees, and giving at most places a symbolic account of the various events. This work, for the first time, tries to unveil the mysteries hidden behind certain important events (lilas) in a most lucid way.The author has tried to establish through his philosophical and comprehensive work presenting the all-embracing view of Vedanta in the most interesting and inspiring way. The author, however, feels that he has been able to collect and present only A Few drops out of the vast ocean of Bhagavata, full or most sweet, invigorating and refreshing waters of life, Hence what is presented may prove to be really helpful to an earnest aspirant.Printed Pages: 496. 104093

Sacred Ground: Jamgon Kongtrul on "Pilgrimage and Sacred Geography"
Snow Lion Publications; Boston, USA; 1559391642; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé (1813-1899) was one of the most influential figures and prolific writers in the Tibetan Buddhist world. He was a founder and the single most important proponent of the nonsectarian movement that flourished in eastern Tibet and remains popular today. Two additional texts discuss his previous lives and recount Kongtrul's final days. "Filled with insight into the human heart. It stands out as a superb example of a genuinely unbiased approach to spirituality, which is of particular relevance to our modern world."--The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche "More than a biography, the story of the extraordinary Kongtrul is an inspiration to all serious students of Buddhist practice and scholarship. Unparalleled in benefiting beings, his life exemplifies the most noble of human endeavors--the accomplishment of receiving and practicing, codifying and transmitting, the entirety of Tibet's spiritual traditions. We are fortunate that one of the most gifted translators of our times, Richard Barron, has brought forth this treasure."--Erik Pema Kunsang, translator of Kongtrul's "Light of Wisdom" series "Reading the autobiography of this supreme master gives us an understanding of the truly wondrous deeds that bodhisattvas perform, filling our minds with awe and our hearts with faith. It inspires us to actualize our own inherent potential that allows the qualities of the bodhisattvas to manifest within ourselves. This book is a priceless treasure to be studied and revered."--Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche "To glimpse the origins of Buddhism in Tibet, we must read accounts of the lives of such masters as Milarepa and Guru Rinpoch8}É{c9}é. To survey Tibetan Buddhism at its fullest flowering many centuries later, we must read this book, the autobiography of the lama who gave Tibetan Buddhism its definitive form. Richard Barron, brilliant translator of some of the most important Buddhist texts to appear in English, again offers us a meticulous translation of a crucial, challenging work. This book is a must-read for any person committed to the Tibetan Buddhist path of reflection and meditation."-- Ngawang Zangpo, author of Sacred Ground and Guru Rinpoché Printed Pages: 574. 020858

21542 Ni Wayan Pasek Ariati
The Journey of the Goddess Durga India, Java and Bali
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8177421522; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 29 Cm 
Written by a Balinese historian this volume traces the long journey of images of the Goddess Durga within India in the 1st millennium CE and then the long evolution of these images in Java and Bali beginning c.700 CE in the Early Mataram kingdom of ancient Java. In addition to being a historical study this volume also documents the author's personal journey. Raised in a rural village of Bali, the author experienced images of Durga as an awe-inspiring and terrifying goddess renowned as the patroness of the black arts. During a two-year period of work and study in India (2001-2003) the author was exposed to images of the goddess Durga that depict her as a beautiful warrior goddess who protects the community of her worshippers. This work grows out of the author's experience of seeking to understand historical factors that led to the stark contrast of images of Durga that we see when comparing contemporary India and Bali. Dr. Ariati first traces the development of images of Durga in the 'great' and 'little' traditions of India, calling attention especially to the evidence of the Markandeya Purana for a movement of myths about the goddess from north to south India. She then traces the development of a unique 'Javanese pantheon' that includes images of Durga as a goddess who presides over the northern direction and protects the kingdom and reigning monarch from danger. Dr. Ariati then draws on the evidence of the Javanese exorcistic text Sudamala and reliefs illustrating this work at Candi Tigawangi, a temple constructed c. 1406 CE by a branch of the Majapahit dynasty. Noting that this is the starting point for depictions of demonic forms of Durga in Java, Dr. Ariati calls attention to the special role played by a male authority figure who exorcizes a demonic form of the goddess Durga and returns her to her benign form as the goddess Uma, or Parvati. Dr. Ariati traces the further development of this exorcistic theme in the Calon Arang tale of Bali and images of the 'divine witch' Rangda. She concludes her study by drawing parallels between the demonization of female images in myth and ritual and a campaign of disinformation that led to the destruction of Indonesia's first women's movement during the tumultuous early years of the New Order government. The author makes frequent use of texts in the Old Javanese and Balinese languages that enrich her historical study by introducing themes common to Balinese understanding of Durga that she groups in terms of the three roles of the goddess in creation (utpatti), preservation (sthiti) and dissolution (pralina)..

21545 Niccolao Manucci; Translated By William Irvine
Storia Do Mogor or Mogul India 1653-1708, 4 Vols.
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1981; 8170691214; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
A well-known traveller's account of Mughal India, Manucci the Venetian's work, which has been typically out of print for a long time ever since its appearance in 1907-9, is now offered in full and unexpurgated form. It is a faithful and vivid picture of Mediaeval India from 1656-1680. Like Tavernier and Brucer, two equally famous travellers' works, Hedges' Diary of Mughal Provincial Administration, Gemeli Careri's visit to Aurangzeb's camp in the Deccan in 1695 and Catrou's Histoire Generale de l' Empire du Mogol (1715), founded on the memoirs printed in these pages, this voluminous four-volume work is of both subjective and objective value which can hardly be overestimated. Written in a charming style, the book is truly a magnum opus of the celebrated author who visited India in 1656 and was associated with the Mughal Court for over half a century. He offers herein, besides other intimate details, an account of Hindu religion, manners, customs, and description of Muhammadan weddings and funerals. The book is a veritable mine of otherwise inaccessible data about a period of Indian history which everyone should know. Comprehensive in its groundwork and masterly and lucid in its details, Manucci's book, as presented in its English garb by Irvine, ranks among the most authoritative sources at the disposal of the historian of the future. A painstaking exploration of life as lived in an important period of Mughal history, the book is crowded with facts carefully and ably translated and edited with historical footnotes which help in understanding them and their relation to the administrative, political and social condition of the time. Few MSS, were more worth translating and few have had a better translator. Printed Pages: 2036. 014775

Autobiography of an Archive: A Scholar’s Passage to India
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8178244586; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The decades between 1970 and the end of the twentieth century saw the disciplines of history and anthropology draw closer together, with historians paying more attention to social and cultural factors and the significance of everyday experience in the study of the past. The people, rather than elite actors, became the focus of their inquiry, and anthropological insights into agriculture, kinship, ritual, and folk customs enabled historians to develop richer and more representative narratives. The intersection of these two disciplines also helped scholars reframe the legacies of empire and the roots of colonial knowledge. In this collection of essays and lectures, history’s turn from high politics and formal intellectual history toward ordinary lives and cultural rhythms is vividly reflected in a scholar's intellectual journey to India. Nicholas B. Dirks recounts his early study of kingship in India, the rise of the caste system, the emergence of English imperial interest in controlling markets and India's political regimes, and the development of a crisis in sovereignty that led to an extraordinary nationalist struggle. He shares his personal encounters with archives that provided the sources and boundaries for research on these subjects, ultimately revealing the limits of colonial knowledge and single disciplinary perspectives. Drawing parallels to the way American universities balance the liberal arts and specialized research today, Dirks, who has occupied senior administrative positions and now leads the University of California at Berkeley, encourages scholars to continue to apply multiple approaches to their research and build a more global and ethical archive.

Castes of Mind: Colonialism and the Making of Modern India
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8178240726; Softcover; New; 
The author argues that caste is neither an unchanged survival of ancient India nor a single system that reflects some core culture. Rather than being an expression of Indian tradition, he argues that caste, as we know it now, is a relatively modern phenomenon, the product of the encounter between India and British colonial rule. This is not to suggest that the British invented caste, but to show that it was on account of British domination that caste became a single term capable of naming as well as subsuming India’s diverse forms of social identity and organisation. Dirks also examines the rise of caste politics in contemporary India, in particular caste-based movements and their implications for Indian nationhood.Printed Pages: 388. 101971

The Politics Book: A Lexicon of Political Facts from Abu Gharib to Zippergate
Research Press Private Limited; New Delhi, India; 8173141363; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
apologise One of the hardest things for any politician to do, but one that will be required of them if they breach parliamentary etiquette or are to survive the exposure of personal misjudgement or wrongdoing. Joseph Chamberlain’s motto was ‘Never apologise, never explain, never retract’; Spiro Agnew’s, ‘Apologise now. It will save time later’. In the twelve years since the publication of the now legendary Brewer’s Politics, the political lexicon has grown exponentially, as politics itself appears to have entered a terrifying, global age. Taking up where Brewer’s left off, The Politics Book provides a snapshot of where the language of politics finds itself today. A unique blend of hard facts, political insight and searing wit, The Politics Book navigates the soundbites, the put-down and half-truths politicians use to express themselves, and explores the meaning of terms, phrases and concepts that have become part of our daily vocabulary.

The Indo-Aryan Origins and Other Vedic Issues
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8177421158; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book contains studies by a well-known Greek Indologist who repeatedly considers the thorny problem of Indoaryan origins and finds its solution in indigenism. The studies examine various aspects of the Indo-European common heritage and of the Vedic Tradition. One study analyses the position of the early Hittite Culture in relation to the other IE branches and especially Vedic. Another traces the common names of deities in the different IE cultures. Two studies compare Vedic and Mesopotamian and Vedic and Egyptian interconnections respectively. Others examine purely Vedic issues like the religio-philosophical thought in the Vedas and the real meaning of the words pur 'defensive structure ' and samudra 'confluence of waters, ocean'. In all these studies the Vedic inheritance emerges as the oldest of all IE traditions, older than even the Near eastern cultures; the bulk of the Rgveda hymns appear to have been composed in the 4th millennium; and the Indoaryans are shown to have been residing in North-West India (and Pakistan) since about 5000 BCE. The writer arrives at these conclusions by examining and comparing evidences from the linguistic, literary, anthropological and archaeological fields (and from Genetics).

Vedic and Indoeuropean Studies
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8177421379; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Almost all the studies in this volume deal with subjects of Vedic and I(ndo-)E(uropean) provenance, i.e. relations of Vedic with Greek, Latin etc. and the fabricated Proto-Indo-European itself. Moreover, all the essays kick off from the RV (Rgveda). They move centripetally from the RV to the diverse areas of Anthropology, History, Linguistics, Philosophy, Poetry and Religion, examining one or other aspect from a new perspective and leading to new unexpected conclusions. When the evidences from Sanskrit and the RV are cosidered, the current theories about, for instance, the origin and development of language and religion are seen to be faulty and in need of thorough revision.;In addition, the cumulative evidences from all these different areas (and others) show that the Indoaryans are indigenous to India from at least the 7th millennium BCE, that Vedic is much older than any other IE language and closest to the Proto-Indo-European mother tongue and that all past and current IE studies should be scratched and a fresh start be made, if it is still thought to be necessary.;;Dr. Nicholas Kazanas is Greek-born. He was educated chiefly in Britain. He read English Literature in University College; Economics and Philosophy at the School of Economic Science; Sanskrit in the School of Oriental and African Studies - all in London. He did his post-graduate studies at SOAS and in Pune and Varanasi. He taught for some years in London. For more than ;20 years now he is the Director of Omilos Meleton, a Cultural Institute in Athens. He has various publications in Greek; several peer-reviewed academic Journals, Western and Indian, have printed his articles on Indology.

Colored Cosmopolitanism: The Shared Struggle for Freedom in the United States and India
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243539; Hardcover; New; New; 
Colored Cosmopolitanism is the first detailed examination of both ends of this transnational encounter. Nico Slate tells the stories of neglected historical figures, like the “Eurasian” scholar Cedric Dover, and offers a stunning glimpse of people we thought we knew. Prominent figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Swami Vivekananda, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Martin Luther King, Jr., emerge as never before seen. Slate reveals the full gamut of this exchange—from selective appropriations, to blatant misunderstandings, to a profound empathy—as African Americans and South Asians sought a united front against racism, imperialism, and other forms of oppression.Printed Pages: 344. 101959

Nature, Environment and Society: Conservation, Governance and Transformation in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045325; Hardcover; New; New; 
The future of humanity lies uncertain as nature falls prey to the loot and plunder initiated in the name of development, growth and progress today. As the vast riches of the earth continue to be endangered, a global consciousness regarding the importance of natural resources, biodiversity, etc. is on the rise. Given such a scenario, what is required is further understanding of man’s interaction with the environment.This contributory volume examines the interrelationship between nature and society in South Asia. It focuses on four points: perception of natural resources during colonial rule, conservation of nature, role of governments in administering environment, and transformation of nature as a result of development or industrial projects. The book divided into three broad themes, analyses the major decisions taken in India with regard to environment after Independence and their consequences; the relationship between communities which consider natural environment as an essential part of their identity, and as a key factor for social, political and economical issues; and the urban explosion and/or the construction of infrastructure such as dams or roads that have impacted the relationship between different social groups and their territory. It also examines the set-up (policy and stakes), process and consequences (often the displacement of populations) of such projects in three different states of India.Printed Pages: 260. 101842

The pressure on women to remain forever young can make menopause a time you approach with dread. The thought of battling with hot flushes, uncontrollable weight gain, brittle bones, mood swings and memory loss can plunge you into depression. Is menopause really the end of life as you know it? Nicole Jaff understands the pressures and the confusion experienced by women in menopause or approaching menopause and acts as their guide through the maze of conflicting theories, the advertisements of companies offering cure-alls and the array of medical options offered by doctors. Nicole explains the theories, the claims and the myths surrounding menopause. She uses numerous case studies of women who have come to her for counselling to illustrate womens concerns to support her central themeeach woman is different and so the treatment of menopausal symptoms needs to be individually designed. A one-size-fits-all approach is of no benefit to women.Printed Pages: 384. 104744

Negotiating Adolescence in Rural Bangladesh: A Journey through School, Love and Marriage
Zubaan/Atlantic Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381017173; Hardcover; New; New; 
Negotiating Adolescence in Rural Bangladesh interrogates the experience of being young and becoming adult in rural Bangladesh, in a context of profound processes of socio economic change. Throughout South Asia, new educational opportunities and an increase in the age at which girls and boys get married are opening new spaces for young people to live the passage to adulthood. This book documents and describes the everyday reality of this changing gendered transition for young people in a rural area of South West Bangladesh. It focuses on three main areas that are central to young people?s experience: those of college and student life, friendships and relationships with those of the same sex and across sexes, and marriage and the issues involved in the choice of a marriage partner.

The Art of Sanskrit Poetry: An Introduction to Language and Poetics
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510791; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
This book is both an introduction to Sanskrit and an investigation into the relationship between nine basic affective states (bhava) and the form they take in the absence of self-interest (tatasthya) according to the theory of Indian aesthetics as developed in the Dhvanyaloka and the Abhinavabharati. To illustrate the process of aesthetic appreciation the different categories of suggestion (dhvani) in a continuous twelfth century poetic text (kavya), and the various forms of aesthetic experience (rasa) which the suggestions initiate, are analysed consecutively. The aspects of culture, mythology, astronomy, botany, etc., which were particularly characteristic of mediaeval India, are discussed in the notes on the basis of references to Vedic, Upanisadic, Epic, and Puranic texts, as well as to other anthologies of poetry, but also to recent scientific literature in order to explicate them in a more multidisciplinary context. The grammatical section is based on the text. The vocabulary facilitates alternative translations and hence different suggestions and aesthetic experiences. The General Index includes explanations of all grammatical forms and translations of Sanskrit technical terms plus cross references of English-Sanskrit and Latin-English-Sanskrit regarding flora and fauna.
