29903 Sinclair Stevenson
The Heart of Jainism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121501229; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Jainism, the most fascinating and complex among the Indian religions, offers an interesting field of enquiry for the scholar of comparative religions. Originating as a heterodox sect in the sixth century BC it has added considerably to the development of Indian thought and culture while maintaining to this day its distinct identity and philosophy as a religion par excellence of love and kindness. The history of Jainism attains a greater significance, in particular, for, and its non-competitive character, it was able to stand on its own during the various stages of its history. Mrs. Sinclair Stevenson, in her present work, The Heart of Jainism has analyzed these significant detail. While tracing the origin of Jainism to the revolt of the Kshatriya against Brahmanical exclusiveness and the ritual-ridden structure, she has shown how it sustained itself through the course of its history. This, in her view, became possible because in Jainism the body of ascetics was provided adequately by its lay community and the permeation of strong Hindu influences. In this painstaking work, Mrs. Stevenson has examined, in clear details, not only the history and development of Jainism, but has also described Jainism as it is practised today. Her exposition of the Nine Categories of the Fundamental Truth of the Jainas and their subdivisions is distinguished by a careful and valuable analysis and she has gone into the details of examining the Jaina belief in existence and other allied terms as they mean to the Jainas themselves. She has also described in detail the Jaina worship and religious customs, the various ceremonies observed during the life-time by Jaina-both the layman and the ascetic, mythology, architecture and literature. A detailed treatment has been given to the analysis of the Nine Categories and the twenty-four Tirthankaras in the two Appendices at the end of this work. Marked by its vividness of detail derived from a close and personal knowledge and study, The Heart of Jainism should prove to be of great interest to the scholars of religion.

Aspects of Speech in Vedic Ritual
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8173050783; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
The Indian mantra has evoked great curiosity and has invited studies on it from many scholars. The mantra as such though efficacious by itself, is important more for the principle of Highest Speech, underlying it. The present Book deals with the concept of speech and its various aspects as seen in the Vedic ritual. Many ideas occurring in the Vedic ritual, get correlated when once the various aspects of speech are taken into account. These aspects of speech include not only the rc-s, yajus-es, saman-s stotra-s and sastra-s but also metres, silpa-s, mystic utterances such as the word Svaha, Vasat, Hin, Om, the three Vyahrti-s (Bhuh, Bhuvah and Svah), Sloka-s and gatha-s, which are the articulate forms of speech, as well as singing and playing on instruments, which are the articulate forms of speech, as well as singing and playing on instruments, which are the inarticulate forms of speech. With her thousand-fold 'progeny' speech plays a major role in the Vedic ritual. The book takes note of this manifold 'progeny' of speech and the belief connected with it.Printed Pages: 292. 100243

Revealing Deeper Meanings: Narratives from Veda to Puranas
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8173055629; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Narratives or mythical accounts from Veda to Puranas, at every place, support the issues occurring in the multi-faceted ancient Indian tradition. For every change, though slight, in the ancient Indian society, and for a new face-lift of the society, in the sphere of code of conduct, these narratives figure as arthavada, and have functional value. To know the real purport of these narratives is the right key to unfold the fine synthesis of ‘Old’ and ‘New’, that has made the Indian Man. 110409

Panorama of Proverbs (Hindi-Sanskrit-English-Urdu-Arabic-Persian)
Nag Publishers; Delhi, India; 1984; 817081023X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Like motherland, the mother-tongue is the image of The Mother of the universe. No improvement of a nation can be rendered wholly perfect, unless the mother-tongue is improved. Nay, Religion of a nation cannot be fully developed prosperity cannot quickly crown a nation knowledge cannot fully manifest itself in the country, national sentiments cannot be preserved intact, the glory of native land cannot be magnified, man cannot attain the full stature of humanity, originality of a nation cannot be preserved, nor can he speedily attain temporal advancement, spiritual elevation as well as redemption, unless the mother tongue be preserved and improved. As the Sutras (aphorisms) of the Holy Scriptures are intimately connected with the intellect, so are the popular sayings (proverbs) of language closely associated with the mind. As many profound ideas relating to domain of intellect are expressed by the small aphorisms, so are the profound ideas relating to the domain of mind expressed by proverbs current in the language.This work 'Kahawat Ratnakar', first part of Panorama of Proverbs has been published with a view to serve the mother-tongue. Hindi. These sayings have been collected through the assistance of many savants. Sayings in Hindi (our mother-tongue) as well National language are the main factor in this work; and as matters of subsidiary importance sayings have likewise been culled from Sanskrit (the father-tongue) or rendered into Sanskrit in several instances. For the sake of convenience, sayings have also been culled from English or Urdu or translated in either of these languages. Care has been taken to gleen, as far as possible, corresponding proverbs from the Arabic and Persian also.Printed Pages: 222. 103917

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510937; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
First published in 1921, when the author was the British Ambassador in Tokyo, Hinduism and Buddhism provides a vivid historical sketch of the Hindu and Buddhist religions, an immense subject. In his introduction Sir Charles Eliot points to the real foundation of Indian thought: ‘Here more than in any other country the national mind finds its favourite occupation and full expression in religion. This quality is geographical rather than racial, for it is possessed by Dravidians as much as by Aryans. From the raja to the peasant most Hindus have an interest in theology and often a passion for it. Few works of art and literature are purely secular: the intellectual and aesthetic efforts of India, long, continuous and distinguished as they are almost all the expression of some religious phase.’ The reissue of this eminent book is an important event which will be welcomed by all who are concerned with Hindu and Buddhist religion and thought.

The Buddhist Art of Gandhara: The story of the early school, it's birth, growth and Decline
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 812150967X; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
About two thousand years ago, the land named Gandhara on the west banks of the Indus fell successively under the Greeks, the Sakas and the Parthians. This book gives an account of the school of art which formed itself under these widely divergent cultures. The early Gandhara school is chiefly notable in providing the earliest works of art in which the Buddha was represented in bodily form. Before this, he had always been shown symbolically; the characteristic and now familiar Buddha image was developed from the work of the early Gandhara sculptors. Sir John Marshall begins by analysing the formative influences of Gandhara art, its relationship to the early svhool of Central India and Hindustand, and the extent of its debt to the Greeks. He then traces the history of its development, in a remarkable and carefully chosen series of illustrations. The text is in the form of a commentary on these illustrations; the reader can thus share the author's extensive knowledge of the Gandhara school while observing for himself its growth and decline. Since it deals with the birth of their religious art as it exists today, this book must be of interest to a great many people in Buddhist countries. It will also be of value to oriental historians and those concerned with Eastern art in general. Printed Pages: 136 with 152 b/w illustrations. 039772

The Garland of Letters: Essays on Tantra/ Mantra Sastra (The Selected Works of Sir John Woodroffe)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178224003; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This book is an attempt to explain to an English knowing reader an undoubtedly difficult subject. It is natural that, given the difficulty and the mystery which surrounds the subjects that strangers to India have failed to understand Mantra. They jumped to the conclusion that it is “meaningless superstition.” This is the familiar argument of the lower mind which says “what I cannot understand can have no sense at all.” Mantra is, it is true, meaningless to those who do not know its meaning. But there are others who do, and to them it is not "superstition." The Mantra-Sastra is worthy of a close study which, when undertaken, will disclose elements of value to minds free from superstition, of metaphysical bent and subtle-seeing (Suksmadarsin). A profound doctrine, ingeniously though guardedly set forth, is contained in the Tantras of Mantra-Sastra or Agama.Printed Pages: 319. 102320

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178224224; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The Indian Tantras, which are numerous, constitute the scripture (Sastra) of the Kaliyuga, and as such are a voluminous source of present and practical orthodox "Hinduism". The Tantra Sastra is, in fact, whatever be its historial origin, a development of the Karmakanda (using that term in the general sense of ritual section of the scripture), promulgated to meet the needs of that age. Siva says: "For the benefit of men of the Kali age, men bereft of energy and dependent for existence on the food they eat, the Kaula doctrine, O auspicious one! is given" (Ch. IX, verse 12). To the Tantras we must therefore look if we would understand aright both ritual, yoga, and sadhana of all kinds as they exist to-day, as also the general principles of which these practices are but the objective expression.Printed Pages: 472. 102321

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178224216; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
There is a Supreme Reality which is Eternal and Indefinable. It is an Absolute, inconceivable and ineffable- the Brahman. Unknowable in its utterness, this Reality presents itself to us in three supreme terms of its Truth: an absolute Existence, Sat; an absolute Consciousness, Cit; and an absolute Bliss, Ananda. This is the poise of Brahman turned towards self-revelation. It perceives itself as an infinite Existence; not a mere existence but a Being with a full awareness of all that It is, an infinite Consciousness. This Consciousness inherent in the supreme Being is no static awareness it is instinct with a Power, a Force dynamic with all the content of the Consciousness. And the nature of this selfconscient Existence is an inalienable Delight. All is a manifestation out of this triune status of the Eternal, Sat-Cit-Ananda.Printed Pages: 484. 102322

Principles of Tantra, Part I and II (The Selected Works of Sir John Woodroffe)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8178224542; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The present work is a defence of the Tantra, of which Sastra the author is an adherent and a polemic, undertaken in the interests of Hindu orthodoxy in its Sakta and Tantrika form against secularism on the one hand, and on the other the religious eclecticism and various reforming movements, of which, when the book was first written, the Brahmasamaj was a leading type. In fact, in parts the book reads like an orthodox Catholic protest against modernism and is thus interesting as showing how many fundamental principles are common to all orthdox forms of belief, whether of West or of East.The author of the Tantratattva (on which this translation is based)is a well-known Tantrik Pandit, preacher, and secretary of the Sarvamgalasabha of Benares, who knew no English. His work, which is written in Bengali, may therefore be taken to be an accurate popular statement of modern orthodox views on the subject treated by him. The word Tattva is a very comprehensive one, which is by no means always easy to translate. The author has rendered the title of the book as Principles of Tantra, though, may be, it should be Subjects of Tantra. The work deals with chosen topics of Tantra. This, however, also involves a statement of certain fundamental principles which govern Sastrik teaching on the subjects dealt with, and this as well as the contents of possible future volumes must be the justification for giving the book ambitious title.Printed Pages: 512. 102323

Hymns to the Goddess and Hymns to Kali:: Karpuradi Stotra (The Selected Works of Sir John Woodroffe)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8178224488; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The hymns to the Devi in this volume (introduced by a stotra to Her Spouse, the Kalabhairava) are taken from the Tantra, Purana, Mahabharata, and Sankaracarya, who was "the incarnation of devotion" (bhaktavatara) as well as a great philosopher; a fact which is sometimes ignored by those who do not wish to be reminded that he, whose speculative genius they extol, was also the protagonist of the so-called "idolatrous Hinduism." As his great example amongst many others of differing race and creed tell us, it is not, from the view of religion, the mark of discernment (even though it be the mode) to neglect or disparage the ritual practice which all orthodoxies have prescribed for their adherents. Of the Hymns now published, those from the Mahabharata and Candi have already been translated; Adyakalisvarupastotra has also been previously published as part of a rendering of the Mahanirvana Tantra. It is necessary to study the Hindu commentators and to seek the oral aid of those who possess the traditional interpretation of the Sastra. Without this and an understanding of what Hindu worship is and means, absurd mistakes are likely to be made. The author has therefore availed himself of the Commentaries of Nilakantha on the Mahabharata, of Gopala Chakravarti and Nagogi Bhatta on Candi, and of Nilakantha on the Devibhagavata.Printed Pages: 347. 102324

The book is one of the earliest authoritative works on the fundamental nature of Hinduism, authored by a noted Western scholar, Sir Monier Monier-Williams. The scholarly work deals with the fundamental aspects of Hinduism: the nature of its beliefs, philosophy and practice. It provides precious details on the principal works of Hinduism: the Vedas, the Upanishads and the Dharmashastras. It discusses the essence of the Vedic hymns, the Brahmanas and the sacrificial system, the Upanishadic philosophy, the doctrine of triple manifestations, and the development of sectarian beliefs — Shaivism, Vaisnavism and later Shaktism. The in-depth study delves objectively into the major concepts and doctrines associated with Hinduism, such as, the doctrine of incarnation, doctrine of devotion and idol-worship as well as the caste system. It presents a discussion on the famous places held sacred by the Hindus which are the major centres of pilgrimage: the city of Benares, Allahabad, Gaya, Nashik and Haridwar, among others.

29988 Sir Richard Temple
India: Eternal Cycle
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8173050171; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
India's history dates back to several millennia. Between the Indus Valley civilization and today in India there are many gaps and periods about which little is known. The links joining one period to another are not always evident and a very great deal has happened and innumerable changes have taken place. But there is always a underlying sense of continuity which joins modern India to the far distant period of thousands of years ago. It is this presentation of India's past which is the guiding line of INDIA: THE ETERNAL CYCLE, and which artist and historian have tried to potray with as much fidelity as possible. The illustrated book is a unique attempt to analyse and visually represent the history of India. The splendid legacies of a great antiquity and an ancient religion are beautifully potrayed through a fascinating panorama of paintings connected with India's history and done specially for this work. The book thus affords a unique opportunity to present to the reader sumptuous and varied representations of India's past which are rarely if ever on public view. Printed Pages: 106. 100289

Ivanhoe
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8179920097; Softcover; New; 
This is an exciting story of the adventures of knights and their followers in England ruled by King Richard, the Lion Heart. It is a dangerous time for the country because the noble king is away fighting enemies in a foreign land; while at home, his greedy dissatisfied brother is plotting to grab the throne. There are those who have no morals and are quick to change loyalties, tempted by power and money. But there are also those who will die for a cause, for their King and their country. Such a loyal subject is Ivanhoe who struggles to fight for the truth, and faces the worst enemies in a life devoted to his King.Printed Pages: 274. 105509
