29001 Shunryu Suzuki
Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1590308492; Softcover; New; 
"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few."So begins this most beloved of all American Zen books. Seldom has such a small handful of words provided a teaching as rich as has this famous opening line. In a single stroke, the simple sentence cuts through the pervasive tendency students have of getting so close to Zen as to completely miss what it's all about. An instant teaching on the first page. And that's just the beginning.In the forty years since its original publication, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind has become one of the great modern spiritual classics, much beloved, much reread, and much recommended as the best first book to read on Zen. Suzuki Roshi presents the basics—from the details of posture and breathing in zazen to the perception of nonduality—in a way that is not only remarkably clear, but that also resonates with the joy of insight from the first to the last page.

29002 Shurti Kapila & Faisal Devji (Eds)
Political Thought in Action: The Bhagavad Gita and Modern India
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 1107033950; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume brings together a group of intellectual and social historians to discuss the way in which modern interpretations of the Gita have focused on war and violence rather than peace and stability as a site for thinking about politics. The essays gathered here look at the Gita as a philosophical and ethical text both within South Asia and also on its ‘outward journey’ into western political debate. Though part of an ancient epic tradition the Gita did not achieve its current eminence until very recently. Its resurgence and reinterpretation in short is coterminous with the formation of modern life and politics. But if modern commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita cannot be described simply as participating in some ancient and continuing tradition neither should they be seen merely as the epiphenomena of an abstraction like capitalism that supposedly constitutes the true reality of Indian society. This set of essays seeks to intervene in current debates within political thought and intellectual history and to offer new perspectives on both. They do so with the presumption that the place of India and its political thought is instructive for and foundational in the making of the national and post-national global order. The book would be of interest to academic researchers as well as general readers interested in South Asian History Indian philosophy and religion.Printed Pages: 220. 101433

Hindu Concept of Life and Death
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8121510562; Reprint; Paperback; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book portrays the Hindu view of life in its totality-Its origin, its growth, its decay, its eternity. It surveys the different schools of thought in East and West-beginning with human belief in the Unseen, down to religious rites and the birth of materialism. It analyses over 500 ancient texts (each translated into lucid prose) to justify the Hindu cults of immortality, karma, transmigration of souls and image-worship. It underlines the fundamentals of physical science as found delineated in the early Vedic texts, and projects the Hindu concept of cosmic and bio-consciousness, their relation to Space-Time Continuum and the Supreme. Late Shyam Ghosh had a deep study of Hindu Sastras. He translated several ancient texts including a few relating to yoga. His expose of Patanjala Yogasutra is widely commended. His other published books are The Original Yoga (1989, 1999) and the Rgveda for the Layman (Satasuktaparidarsanam). Printed Pages: 288. 000116

Preventive Environmental Management: An Indian Perspective
Foundation Books in association with Centre for Environment Education; New Delhi, India; 8175963131; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The link between business, production, commerce and environmental imperatives is becoming more and more obvious. Industry, the world over, is under pressure, like never before, from an unprecedented set of environmental laws. But, the fact is that only a few crusaders have managed to influence policy makers and opinion makers to devise the ""command and control regime"". It became increasingly clear during the latter part of the twentieth century that current development models would not help create an appropriate milieu for progress that would maintain a desirable environment and ensure sustainable development. To bridge this gap, a proactive movement emerged in governing systems, including industry and community. This has entailed a paradigm shift in approach, popularly known as PEM, i.e. Preventive Environmental Management. Implicit in this paradigm is the twining of economic and environmental benefits. This book highlights the need for incorporating PEM approaches, characterized by community action at all levels of implementation. At the company level, PEM means adopting a holistic approach that includes diagnosing processes and systems for pollution hot-spots, interventions to reduce wastes at source, improving product quality and yield, enhancing waste treatment and value addition and integrating economic and environmental concerns of the stakeholders. What the book attempts is an interpretation of the present status of India’s environment with special reference to municipal and industrial operations. It also discusses the significance of appropriate tools and techniques that enable transition across the continuum of production, consumption, and environmental protection, as well as the preparedness of communities to monitor improved environmental quality. An expansive framework for resolving some prevailing dilemmas has also been proposed in this book. Contents Summary Preface The ""Environment"" in the Context of 21st Century Indian Laws on Environmental Protection The Framework and Implementation of Indian Environment Policy System Analysis: Knowing the Limits Preventive Environmental Management Tools: - Environmental Audit - Environmental Impact Assessment -Life Cycle Assessment - Inventorization and Environmental Management System Preventive Environmental Management Initiatives - Identification of Potential Interventions - Greener Chemistry and Cleaner Technologies - Greener Choices in Process Industry - Redesigning of Unit Operations and Unit Unit Processes - Recycle and Reuse of Wastewater - Sustainable and Intelligent Consumption - Extended Producer Responsibility - Eco-industrial Networks Overarching Issues - Integrated Policy for Production and Consumption: A Proposal - Innovative Approaches Toward Capacity Building - Nexus Between Trade and Environment References Bibliography Web-Resources About the Authors Abbreviations Index List of Tables.

Layayoga: The Definitive Guide to the Chakras and Kundalini
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8120835166; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Tantra-a spiritual tradition centered on the use of the body to find enlightenment-has become extremely popular in the West, but at the heart of Tantra is the little-known practice of Layayoga. Layayoga focuses on the Tantric process of transforming the ordinary human body into a divine body in which every cell is awakened with consciousness. The fundamental aspect of Layayoga is the concentration and breath exercises, and the movement of this energy through the chakras. In Layayoga the adept learns not only to raise kundalini power from the base of the spine up through each chakra to the crown of the head, but also to then skillfully guide this power back to its home at the base of the spine. In the process the body becomes suffused with consciousness in a way not found in other types of Yoga. The result of the author's lifetime of yogic experimentation and Sanskrit scholarship, Layayoga corrects many misconceptions about the chakras and nadis. Complete with meditations and mantras to accompany each chakra, it will allow serious students of Yoga to realize a previously unimagined level of enlightenment in which they are one with the supreme consciousness.Printed Pages: 342. 102248

The Divine Songs of Sage Poet Ramprasad
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8121510856; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 21 Cms 
Ramprasad Sen was born in the second decade of the eighteenth century in Halishahar in (then) Bengal. He was a great saint in Shakta cult. But, he was too natural a poet and composer. The songs are hymns to Goddess Mother Kali couched in rustic words and symbols of everyday life. Yet, most of this symbolism is a rare mosaic of the occult mystery of Tantrashastra and carry a double meaning. Thus, flying kites, the blind ox trudging routine endless circles of the village oil-machine (ghaani), the small town courtroom, the sailing craft of life-are all symbols of the highest mystic Shakta worship of Goddess Durga or Kali (Mahashakti). The English rendering aims to echo the nuances of the original in its threefold uniqueness: (a) simplicity and rustic symbols, (b) their inner spiritual mystique, and (c) muse and rhymes. The volumes will treat the English speaking world to a taste of this rare Indian spiritual songs and poetry. Printed Pages: 299. 011920

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1975; 8121502926; First Edition; Hardcover; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This book is refreshing study of some of the basic issues in the current historical debate on early Indian economy and society. It identifies major trends in the writings on early Indian economic history , and analyses the increasingly oppressive nature of ancient Indian land revenue system and the economic role of early medieval south Indian temples. The author not only makes an assessment of the growing literature on the classical phase of Indian feudalism but also provides a critique of recent studies which claim to demolish the theory of Indian feudalism and seek to replace it by the fragile Chayanovian model of peasant economy and society.

Battling Corruption: Has NREGA Reached India's Rural Poor?
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0198085001; Hardcover; New; New; 
An ambitious workfare scheme, the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), was launched by the Indian government in 2005 to respond to the needs of the country`s poor. The scheme guarantees hundred days of employment in unskilled manual labour at a minimum wage to any rural household in a year.The statistics, however, reveal a bleak picture, and it has been observed that money has continually been siphoned off from the scheme. How can the state become more responsive to its citizens? How can citizens, especially the poor and less privileged, in turn ensure such responsiveness on the part of the state so as to reduce poverty and corruption? In Battling Corruption, the authors, using qualitative and quantitative analysis, measure the effectiveness of formal and informal mechanisms?political decentralization, community social audits, access to information, membership in networks, political competition?in reducing corrupt practices and enhancing poor people`s welfare,thereby enabling NREGA to reach its intended beneficiaries in the Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan. The book also tries to understand the reasons why these mechanisms worked or failed in changing the dominant structure of institutional and social interactions, and transforming the ability of the poor to take advantage of these changes. The book will be invaluable to those studying economics, public administration, political science, and development studies. Policymakers, NGOs, and various bilateral and multilateral donor agencies will also find it resourceful. Printed Pages: 288. 108820

Encyclopedia of Indian Philosophies: Vol. XIII: Nyaya-Vaisesika Philosophy from 1515 to 1660
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8120835123; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The aim of this 28-volume Encyclopedia is to present the contents of different streams of Indian Philosophical texts citing experts on the points that seem debatable. The volumes include a Bibliography, a Glossary and treatments of Nyaya-Vaisesika, Samkhya, Yoga, Purva Mimamsa, various Vedanta systems and certain philosophi-cally important sects of Shaivism and Vaishnavism, as well as Jaina and Buddhist philosophy. In this volume the history of Nyaya-Vaisesika is resumed from Volume VI of the Series and brought up to the time of Gadadhara (ca. 1660). This is the period of the great subcommentators (Jagadisa, Mathuranatha, Gada-dhara) on Raghunatha Siromani's Tattvacinta-manididhita, the culmination of some of the most intricate philosophical analysis the world has ever known. Prof. Sibajiban Bhatta-charyya has in hisextensive Introduction provided a thorough explanation of the basic style and content of these subcommentators, alongwith a readable account of many of the main topics discussed in these works. His Introduction is followed by analyses of some of the chapters of these subcommentaries, provided by those few Indian scholars of recent times able to command the difficulties their interpretation poses. These summaries can be consulted for an initial acquaintance with the topics covered, free from the intricacies of the subcommentaries. Printed Pages: 658. 036544

History, Philosophy, Culture: Revisiting Proffesor G.C. Pande's Thoughts and Works
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8173053979; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
Endowed with multifaceted intellectual prowess, Prof. G.C. Pande ranks among the foremost original Indological thinkers of this century. Almost all the branches of Indology, history, culture, art, philosophy, poetics and aesthetics have become richer by the touch of his creative and sharp intellect. The scope and scale of his output have no doubt been encyclopedic, but the word encyclopedic does not say all about the nature of his works. Several minds expressed in several themes make an encyclopedia, in the case of Prof. Pande, however, there is no mistaking the same mind expressing itself in the several themes he takes up. Extraordinary range and diversity are not the most important aspects of his contributions, more significant is the basically unified outlook or vision that he brings to bear upon the diverse fields of his studies. Most of Pandeji's works despite covering various areas seem to be parts of a larger whole. And from that point of view, he may be regarded as a system builder. This raises him to the rank of a thinker, a philosopher with a certain point of view besides that of a great scholar. The present collection of essays will serve as a reasonable introduction to Prof. Pande's interest and expertise and will provide useful insights into his mind and thoughts. The range and depth of Prof. Pande's scholarship reflected in a variety of works covering widely diverse fields are truly remarkable. The present volume, we hope, will offer a fair glimpse of the wide reach of his interest and the value of his works. Printed Pages: 292. 100161

Managing in Changing Times: A Guide for the Perplexed Manager
Response Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8132102339; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book brings together distinguished writers from diverse fields and their specialised perspectives on new ideas and the challenges they pose to the hegemony of neo-classical scientific management. It explores various possibilities for the future development of the understanding of management and organisation in the context of new economic conditions taking shape in both the East and the West. The focus on these makes this volume topical. It provides today’s managers with alternatives to conventional approaches to management that are now facing a credibility crunch. Managing in Changing Times shows the manager that there are no easy, quick-fix, off the shelf solutions to complex problems. Solutions require thinking and action with multiple perspectives and require considerable effort to master. This imparts the book a global appeal as it speaks to every manager. The initial chapters present the ideas of Schumacher and Capra which, the author shows, could be used as catalysts to evolve a post-scientific global management era. The book will be a handy reference material for students of management, managers and management pundits. Printed Pages: 412. 029618

The Sacred Sorrow of Sparrows: A Collection of Lives
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285684; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Across lives, cities, and continents, melancholy and its tentacles inhabit spaces that are often left unexplored. Through ten stories and ten main protagonists, this book paints a portrait of the universal emotion that strikes the deepest and lingers the longest-sorrow.A nuanced narrative of the eternal human existence, this collection embraces light, laughter, hope, and that silently pulsating craving called love, delivering a communal meditation on mortal failings and human persistence.The stories traverse the length and breadth of the world picking up a train of melody from the sonorous sound of the Bosphorus to the resounding refrain of the Qawwali, from the quiet streets of Isfahan to a crowded city in Japan, from two lovers fraught with desire in Bombay to one man's spiritual awakening in Lebanon. Each story, mired by the undercurrent of simple occurrences and profound epiphanies, also forms an unwitting part of a Sufi's journey as he navigates the world in his mystic inquiry of the unknown.

The Last Song of Dusk
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0670057681; Second Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Pirouetting between laughter and tears, Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi's technicolour debut tells the story of four extraordinary lives. Of Anuradha Gandharva, gifted with astonishing beauty and magical songs; of her husband, Vardhmaan, struggling with secret losses; of Nandini, a deviously alluring artist, with a penchant for panthers and walking on water; and of Shloka, the Gandharvas' delicate, disturbingly silent child. As their fates unravel in an old villa in 1920s' India, they learn to navigate the ever-changing landscape of love, and in doing so encounter a host of eccentrics: Mr Bunkusdaas, the father of Bollywood cinema; Stella Dimm, `England's first ever Tit girl'; Libya Dass, rarely seen out of her porcelain bathtub; and Percival Worthington, the aristocratically limp son of the governor of Bombay, on whom Nandini rashly sets her sights. The Last Song of Dusk is a tale of exquisite friendships, immense sacrifices and dangerous desires. Told with tenderness and with dazzling wit, it will haunt you long after you have turned the final page. Printed Pages: 304. 004419

Textual Correction of Narasimha Purana with other Apuranas and Sanskrit Texts
Nag Publishers; Delhi, India; 1997; 8170813182; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Narasirhha Purana has not yet been critically edited. The Narasirhha Purana as available in print at present consists of 68 chapters, but the presence of the anecdote of the Narasithha-Caturadasi-Ttrata in Hemadri's Caturvargacintamani (1270 A.D.) and Ayodhya-tirtha-prasamsa as found out in four manuscripts by Dr. Umakanta Chaturvedi suggest that there was undoubtedly in existence a somewhat larger text of the Narasirhha Purana than the printed text available at present. This monograph "Textual Correlation of the Narasirhha Purana with other Puranas and Sanskrit Texts", shows the textual borrowing of the Narasirhha Purana from divergent sources, and it is presented to the scholarly world with the hope that it would be of much assistance in the critical edition and reconstruction of the Narasirhha Purana in future.Printed Pages: 126. 103936

With Great Truth & Regard: A Story of the Typewriter in India
Godrej/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8193274008; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 25 Cm 
The story of the typewriter in India is a story of change and empowerment. It became a symbol of modernity in the workplace and, unwittingly, the typewriter also became an instrument of official power, with the typist standing between citizens and high ranking government officials. Until the 1960s, this story was shaped by manufacturers who used foreign technology and ruled the Indian market – until Godrej decided to persevere against all odds with the design and manufacture of the all-Indian typewriter that would eventually go on to become a market leader. When the last manual typewriter rolled out of the Godrej factory in 2009, there was much reminiscing about the era of typewriters that had come to an end. To bring to life the history of that era, Godrej Archives decided to pay a tribute to the machine and everything it meant to Indian society. With the help of a vast in-house archival collection, as well as anecdotes and stories gathered from across India, Godrej Archives presents to you With Great Truth and Regard, the story of the typewriter in India.

Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8175365048; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book deals with the most aboriginal races of Assam - the Bodos of the Kachari flock. They are cheery, good natured, semi-savage folk, candid, simple, trustful but incorrigibly disrespectful, according to notions of Indian good manners.The book is, primarily, a monograph treating of that branch of the Kachari race which lives in scattered hamlets among the foothills of the Himalayas in Assam and Bhutan, inter-mixed with the people from the plains who have intruded into what was once their undisputed home. Their own names for their race is Boro or Bodo (the o has the sound of the English o in hot) The book has an interest and importance from an ethnological point of view, which are perhaps disguised by the author`s characteristically modest estimate of his task and of his power of dealing with it.The book speaks of the characteristics, physical and moral. Origin and Historic summary of the semi-savage Bodos. Further more, details are given about their social and Domestic life, their laws and customs, their religion, folk-lore, traditions and superstitions by the author who lived. Printed.

Eurasian Mythology in the Tibetan Epic of Ge-sar
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8186470204; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Ge-sar is the most extraordinary Tibetan legendary figure and remains, despite various unsuccessful attempts to tie him down into a Context of historical reality, a great Mythological character.The figure of Ge-sar (the name is modelled on the western Cacsar-Kaiser) has served as a repository of traditions that, through the corridor of the Eurasian steppe belt, REACH back into the world of Germanic and Greek legends and into Megalithic religious beliefs.The hero Ge-sar, sent down from heaven and returned thereto, has indicated in the course of his eventful journey on Earth how on the occasion of his return the hope for a reign of justice and peace and the striving for salvation and liberation will be fulfilled. Thus Ge-sar is both hero and saviour at once.Utilizing the Tibetan versions of the epic, Professor Hummel provides us with a wealth of mythological, legendary and folkloric motifs which over the course of centuries sedimented around the initial crystallization kernel. He thus manages to bring to life one of the most fascinating legends of world literature.Printed Pages: 127. 103626

Maritime Archaeology and Shipwrecks off Goa
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2014; 817479140X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Among the ports and harbours of the west coast of India, Goa occupies a strategic position whilst relatively good harbours have made it a centre of maritime trade for much of its history. Goa was one of the most important entrepots on the west coast of India. Maritime interaction of Goa with the rest of the India as well other parts of the world is well documented from the early centuries of the Christian era. Over the centuries, ports of Goa declined owing to siltation, foreign attack, then new ports were established and maritime trade continued. The location of Goa suited the Portuguese from every angle so they fought against Adil Shah and conquered and ruled Goa up to 1961. During these periods several ships have been wrecked in Goa waters either due to naval warfare, unskilled navigation or other reasons.In order to reconstruct the maritime history of Goa both onshore and offshore explorations have been carried out and the present work is the outcome of the exploration. Moreover, it was for this reason that the first shipwreck exploration in Indian waters was carried out in Goa waters. In course of underwater exploration, shipwrecks have been found off Sunchi Reef, St Georges’ Reef and Amee Shoals, Sail Rock and Grande Island. The Sunchi Reef shipwreck is the oldest wreck so far surveyed in Indian waters and the first Portuguese wreck until now investigated. Coastal Geomorphology and Seabed topography of Goa has been recorded while undertaking shipwreck studies. In addition to shipwrecks, stone anchors have been documented in Goa waters and Chandor, Gopakapatana and Old Goa, the port sites of Goa have been explored. In separate chapters, a comprehensive report of analysis of elephant tusks and hippopotamus teeth recovered from Sunchi Reef shipwreck and the anatomical analysis of wooden stocks of iron anchors retrieved from Aguada bay have been included.Printed Pages: 221. 104147

Maritime Contacts of the Past: Deciphering Connections Amongst Communities
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8192624439; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Prior to the commencement of maritime archaeological studies, many amateur divers, fishermen and academicians had recovered numerous artefacts from the seabed, to be either published, showcased, exhibited or sold. The importance and aesthetic value of the artefacts were understood by the scholars and the first academic research of maritime archaeology commenced in the Mediterranean Sea sometime after 1950. Moreover, maritime archaeology was also introduced in the curriculum of some universities and colleges in the 19th century. Now maritime archaeology is swiftly developing because of the availability of new technological advancements that allow archaeologists and oceanographers to explore deeper depths of the ocean bed which were earlier unapproachable. As in other countries, maritime archaeological studies were initiated in India in the year 1983, onshore and offshore explorations in the waters along the west and east coasts of India have been undertaken and remains of submerged ports, shipwrecks, stone anchors and traditional boatbuilding have been documented. But many scholars, researchers and students of South Asia, Southeast Asia and adjoining regions are not well informed on the recent research and advances in the field of Maritime Archaeology in comparison to other parts of the world. Therefore, it is proposed to bring out a special volume on 'Maritime Contacts of the Past: Deciphering Connections amongst communities' that would undoubtedly enhance the knowledge of the scholars and researchers as well. Scholars of different countries involved in this research were approached for contribution and 31 wide ranging articles related to Maritime Archaeology cover the region from the Mediterranean Sea to the Indian Ocean, from the North Pacific to the South Atlantic Ocean.Printed Pages: 802. 104148

Delta/Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8192624447; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In recent years more people and institutes have realised the importance of our maritime past and the need to save the remains from the ravages of time and illegal activities through recently developed tools and scientific methods of maritime archaeology. The developed scientific techniques have helped to make maritime archaeological studies more systematic. And now it is possible for archaeologists to reconstruct in detail the daily lives onboard, commerce and technology from findings such as cargoes, personal belongings and ship remains. 'Shipwrecks around the World: Revelations of the past', covers the story of many shipwrecks from the 15th century onwards, from the Pacific to the Mediterranean, from the north Atlantic to south Atlantic, from Europe to Australia, each shipwreck encapsulating a moment in time and thus illuminating an entire era. The book contains 35 significant and scholarly articles written by specialists involved in the scientific survey of shipwrecks. In addition to papers on shipwrecks, there are papers on conservation of shipwreck finds, and UNESCO Field School on Underwater Cultural Heritage 2009-2011, Thailand, capacity building in the Asian and Pacific Region, and the 2001 UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage. The book contains illustrations of lost ships, drawings supported by original maps and a good number of both inland and underwater photographs of artefacts and antiquities that were recovered and documented in the course of exploration and excavation. Undoubtedly this book will fascinate, enhance the knowledge of researchers and scholars and provide them with an insight into shipwrecks. Shipwrecks around the World also provides one with a positive look at future sites and an exciting glimpse into deepwater shipwreck findings.Printed Pages: 847. 104157
