Only the second full-lenght study of Indian tales from oral tradition, this book places the Tamil tradition in an international context, describes the telling sessions and includes tellers’ interpretations of some tales.

31510 Stuart Hall (Author), Jennifer Daryl Slack & Lawrence Grossberg (Eds)
Cultural Studies 1983: A Theoretical History
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789386296696; Hardcover; New; New; 
Cultural Studies 1983 is a testament to Stuart Hall's contributions to progressive thought and politics. The eight foundational lectures that Hall delivered at the University of Illinois in 1983 introduced a broad range of audiences to a thinker and a discipline that changed the course of critical scholarship and of political imagination and strategy.Unavailable until now, these lectures clearly lay out Hall's original engagement with the theoretical positions that led to the formation of Cultural Studies. While presenting the intellectual background of the discipline of Cultural Studies, Hall discusses the works of Richard Hoggart, Raymond Williams, and E. P. Thompson; the influence of structuralism; the limitations and possibilities of Marxist theory; the importance of Althusser, and the radical possibilities opened up by Gramsci.These lectures also highlight the connection between Hall’s academic work and his political strategizing. As a founding member of the original English New Left, and the founding editor of New Left Review, Hall helped to reshape and reorient our understanding of progressive politics in the modern world.This book will be invaluable to scholars and students in the disciplines of critical race studies, cultural studies, postcolonial studies, literary studies, gender studies, political science, and sociology.

The Formation of the Maithili Language
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1985; 8121500206; First Indian Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Formation of the Maithili language is a brilliant contribution to scientific analysis of the Maithili language, which is spoken by about 2 crores people of Nepal and India. This Maithili language has been the literary vehicle of the Vaisnava poets of Bengal, Assam and Orissa and has inspired the poets of Bengal from Chandidasa upto Rabindranath Tagore. Maithili is from political point of view to be included in the dialects of Hindi, while linguistically it stands in between Bengali and Hindi and is different from both especially on account of each verb forms. It has its own structural form, although it is an Indo-Aryan language, its special features make it different from each of the literary modern Indian languages. Printed Pages: 652. 000387

Gender in South Asia: Social Imagination and Constructed Realities
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 1107043611; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is an examination of gender in South Asia and its intersection with other social variables like caste and class. It spans a wide canvas in terms of different social classes ranging from elite to Dalit women of India and takes material from ancient texts and modern media literature and ethnographic materials forming a historical discourse. The author critically looks at several pervasive and popular theories such as nature/ culture public/ private and gender seen as performative and fluid rather than essentialized and fixed. There is also an appraisal of what feminism means in the Indian context and the cross-cultural construction of patriarchy that varies in its manifestations across time and space. The readers are taken on a journey that shows how gender can only be understood in its social and historical context and as a dynamic and performative concept that emerges out of both collective imaginations and social realities. The use of descriptive and narrative style makes the book readable and enjoyable to both academic and non-academic readers.The book would be of interest to academics researchers and graduate students of South Asian History Anthropology and Sociology.Printed Pages: 238. 101493

The Inner and Outer Selves: Cosmology, Gender, and Ecology in the Himalayas
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 0198079427; Hardcover; New; New; 
The pastoral tribal community of the Jad Bhotiyas inhabit the Uttarkashi region of the Himalayas. For survival, they were engaged in trade across the Himalayan borders, especially of salt from the Tibetan plateau. Following the closure of the Indo-Tibetan border after the 1962 Indo-China war and the cessation of the Tibetan salt trade, these erstwhile transborder traders now find themselves caught in a complex world, forcing them to negotiate their identity. How do the Jads reorient their identities with the altering local and global environment? How do they differentiate between their inner and outer selves? How is their sense of personhood and self-hood influenced by their location, of being situated on the border of two countries, India and Tibet? Based on years of her personal interactions and research in the village of Bhagori in Garhwal, the author takes up a gendered approach to answer these questions. She discusses the qualitative aspects of the daily lives of the villagers and their rituals, cosmology, world views, aspirations, and cultural-historical processes of adapting to the changing political, economic, and social circumstances of these people. This important contribution to the field of border studies of the Himalayan frontiers will be central to those studying anthropology, sociology, political science, and history. Those interested in identity, gender, religion, ethnicity, and nationalism will also find this study useful. Printed Pages: 347. 110229

Hampi: Discover the Splendours of Vijayanagar
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 818973864X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 9 x 9 Inches Clare Arni 
Hampi is one of the greatest heritage sites in India. It has not merely temples or palaces but the remains of a complete medieval city—the magnificent Vijayanagar. There is an exquisite collection of monuments that lie scattered across a picturesque landscape. Founded in the 14th century, the kingdom of Vijayanagar thrived for three hundred years. It was one of the greatest cities of the medieval world, legendary not just for its wealth and military prowess but also for its art, architecture, crafts and culture. Some of the finest architecture and sculpture can be seen at Hampi. It is one of the World Heritage Sites of the UNESCO. Once traders and adventurers across the globe came to Vijayanagar, but in the 16th century the city was sacked by invaders, abandoned by its people, and it never rose again. Today as travellers and pilgrims wander through its beautiful palaces and temples, it seems that the world has returned to Hampi once again. Printed Pages: 262 with 158 photographs. 033967

Saffron, White and Green: The Amazing Story of India's Independence
Puffin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143330527; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
It is one of the most exciting stories in history—the glorious tale of how the powerless, unarmed people of India came together to defy the mightiest empire in the world. The British Empire had tightened its noose around a country split by religion, class and caste. But when the people rallied under the tricoloured banner of freedom, it was with a power that stunned even the strongest. No one had seen such a revolution before. What was truly extraordinary was that India won her independence not through an armed uprising but by persistent, peaceful, non-violent protest. Ordinary men and women stood up against the might of the British Empire, valiantly facing police batons and guns. They marched singing of freedom and faced the hardships of prison. Bonfires of foreign cloth lit up the Non-cooperation movement. Thousands followed Mahatma Gandhi as he marched to Dandi. And a nation of millions held its breath proudly as Jawaharlal Nehru spoke of its tryst with destiny. Not long after, India inspired colonies across the world to stand up and demand independence. This is the story of Ahimsa, Satyagraha and Swaraj, of non-violence and the struggle for truth—all for the one thing that is most valuable to a people and to a nation: Freedom.

Construction of an Identity Discourse: Oriya Literature and the Jagannath Cult, 1866-1936
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8121510414; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book focuses primarily on the Oriya identity-makers, i.e., Oriya literature and the Jagannath cult. Although the study pertains to the historical period, from 1866-1936, it moves back and forth in the time frame, in order to show continuity and get an historical perspective on the subject. Both Oriya literature and the Jagannath cult, over a long historical period have served as means to define and project Oriya identity. This study delves into how since Sarala Dasa's Mahabharata composed during the fifteenth century, Oriya literature has been a repository of identity-constructions, using common history, tradition, legend, geography and nature, and even 'otherness'. The identity-construction in literature became categorical, vivid and well-defined in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries under historical compulsions which arose out of two contradictory forces, British colonialism-imperialism and nationalism. The Jagannath cult also showed since its inception, a tendency to veer around Orissa and Oriya. Gradually over centuries, Jagannath came to be appropriated by Oriyas not only because of His geographical location but also because of royal linkage/patronage, re-interpretation and designing of rituals and festivals, and even attaching cultural significance. This resulted in defining Oriya identity in terms of the Jagannath cult. Such a Jagannath-centric Oriya consciousness really assumed the form of identity during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as in the case of the Oriya literature. Thus, it may be reiterated that in the Orissa history, this particular period, 1866-1936 was very important as it witnessed the concretization of the Oriya identity. This study tries to explore the historical dynamics of the period which went into facilitating the concretization of identity. An important aspect of this book, is an analysis of the way in which Jagannath has been constructed and construed in the Oriya intellectual tradition. Printed Pages: 259. 000335

31536 Subhas Chandra Bose; Edited By Sisir K. Bose
In Burmese Prisons: Correspondence, May 1923-July 1926
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178242508; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Prison letters, despite being subjected to the scrutiny of government censors, often supply some of the deepest insights into the mind of a revolutionary. Subhas Chandra Bose’s letters from Mandalay certainly underscore the truth of the poetic assertion: “Stone walls do not a prison make, nor iron bars a cage.” They make this volume one of the most moving in the 12-volume set of Netaji’s Collected Works. Subhas Chandra Bose’s exile in Burmese prisons from 1924 to 1927 witnessed the transformation of a lieutenant to a leader. During the non-cooperation movement and its aftermath he had wholeheartedly accepted Deshbandhu Chitta Ranjan Das as his political mentor. The apprenticeship was cut short by Deshbandhu’s death in June 1925. When Subhas received this terrible news as a prisoner in Mandalay, he felt “desolate with a sense of bereavement”, as he wrote to his friend Dilip Kumar Roy. Netaji’s letters cover a very wide array of topics— art, music, literature, nature, education, folk culture, civic affairs, criminology, spirituality, and, of course, politics. He bore the rigours of prison life with a combination of stoicism and humour. This volume is indispennsable to an understanding of India’s most major revolutionary leader and will interest all historians of modern India. Printed Pages: 384. 033412

Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2004; 817824103X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
In 1938 Subhas Chandra Bose reached the peak of his political life, when he was elected President of the Indian National Congress. Leading the forces of anti-coloniaIism and socialism, he was re-elected in 1939, having defeated Gandhi's nominee in a bitterly contested election. However, in the face of vehement opposition from the right wing of the Congress and Gandhi, he resigned. This volume brings together Bose's letters, writings and speeches from January 1938 until just after his resignation in April 1939. It includes the famous Haripura Address of February 1938. Other pieces deal with socialism, national planning, science, Hindu–Muslim relations, the role of women, and European politics. Among the 120 letters here are sets of correspondence with Gandhi, Tagore, Jinnah and Nehru. Printed Pages: 280. 031655

Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8178241048; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Between his resignation as Congress President in Calcutta on 29 April 1939 and his escape from his Elgin Road home on the night of 16-17 January 1941, Subbas Chandra Bose provided India with an alternative leadership in place of the old guard represented by the Gandhian High Command. His altemative was based on a commitment to anti-imperialism and future socialism. This volume brings together the writings and speeches of a crucial phase in Bose's political life immediately prior to his emergence as the Netaji of lndia's army of liberation. The themes dealt with here include the role of the left within the Indian independence movement, the Second World War as a conflict between rival imperialisms, and the need for Hindu–Muslim unity and Congress–Muslim League understanding.

The Way of Love: The Bhagavata Doctrine of Bhakti
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8121506654; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
In this study, the author discusses the sadhana presented by the Bhagavatapurana and this is essentially the bhaktimarga, the way of love. After some preliminary remarks about the Puranas in general and the Bhagavata-purana in particular, the author attempts to describe the sadhaka (man as a pilgrim), the sadhya (God as the Supreme Lover), and the sadhana (bhakti as the universal and the most effective way to attain God). The book then draws the attention of the reader to the possible obstacles he may encounter in his spiritual journey, while at the same time assuring him that the guidance of a good guide, the fellowship of other devotees and some other aids will assist him in his pilgrimage. Love is not only the way, but also the goal (prayojana), and hence the study concludes by presenting moksa as sa-prema-bhakti-yoga, that is a union of loving devotion, between God and man, Bhagavan and his bhakta.

Unlocking E-Government Potential: Concepts, Cases and Practical Insights
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299283; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Unlocking E-Government Potential: Concepts, Cases and Practical Insights serves as a practical guide for conceptualizing and implementing e-government at the local, state and national levels and provides an overview of the global experience in implementing the same. This book is a sequel to the author’s earlier book, E-Government: From Vision to Implementation. It describes the evolution of e-government applications over a period of four years through cases and illustrations and explores its potential impact on cost of access, quality of service and quality of governance for citizens and businesses, and on transparency and corruption. The book presents empirical results from impact assessment studies done during 2006–08 for nearly 50 e-government projects. Among other issues, it discusses the strategy for making e-government work for the poor. The case studies of e-government applications cover a wide range—serving different types of clients, focusing on different purposes, and built by different tiers of government. These cases explain the application context, new approaches embodied in the e-government application, challenges faced during implementation, benefits delivered and costs incurred. This book will be of interest to management professionals and those with a public administration background. It will also be very useful for students enrolled in university programmes dealing with ICT and development and international academic courses on e-governance. Printed Pages: 380. 028597

No Stones Upturned
V & S Publishers; New Delhi, India; 9789381588727; Softcover; New; 
The story Gold Chain is about a middle class family which prides itself for its ability to judge and justify every action of any individual with confidence and command. Sometimes people and times may not remain constant and we need to accept all that which happens in our lives with grit and hardiness. Revelation follows the life of a staunch moralist who rigidly believes that his convictions are correct and the world would accept his dictum as final. Fate has it when he realises a forgone truth that it is he who needs to change and not the world for his sake. Kaushy is a real life incident that happened to a young girl yet the fictional aspects added gives it a different flavour and setting. Medicine cannot help the mind if it chooses to wanderand no one can really analyse, or comprehensively explain what the human brain can concoct. When times change is the story of a woman in a Diary entry. Although there are many such unsung heroes in our society today, no one really cares or shares the concerns of the common man/woman and they are left to fend for themselves. God bless my darling is the story of a child who was unwell but with the support and sheer effort of her mother fights the battle to survive and sustain her life. It?s the positivity that people show that makes life worth living. The night that changed my life is about a teenager who learns a thing or two about life in a short journey that she undertakes with friends and family. It is an eye-opener for the young girl who realises that the world is not what we assume that it portrays. The green grass is about a family which believes that their lives is worth emulating since they could realise their dreams, but when one?s dream is fulfilled, it?s time to create another dream and not to continue believing in the longevity of the dream to last forever. Ambujam Mami is the story of a woman who contrary to belief is a strong and resilient person. We humans always typecast people into categories and sometimes its carried too far, the world does possess many such people who break many a myth time and again and make us introspect about our ability to pass a judgement. Fit for a queen treads into the life of a group of women who lead lives which is different and variant from each other, yet common enough to make them realise that while the wine remains the same, the bottle does differ from one to the other. No stones upturned: is about a teacher?s journey. There is no moral message, just a chapter from the teacher?s life, while he journeys from place to place and makes friends and well-wishers for life.

Unknown Civilization of Prehistoric India
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8174791426; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This investigative work reveals the vast unknown past of India lying in incomprehensibility, and whatever diminutive of it is known, is a mere tip of the veiled iceberg. The author cites that prior to India's Aryanisation, there were a thriving tribal land as evident from presence of countless megaliths spread across her. The author makes us known that many prevailing women-oriented ceremonies have their origin in this period. He throws light on the many non-Sanskritic rituals, traditions and customs which gradually became part of the Hindu fold. He also points towards the use of many Mundari words in European languages. To this end, the author points toward similarities between India and far placed Britain pointing to contacts between the Kolarian tribes and the Europeans in those times. The author gives a new definition to megaliths stating that not all these monuments in India were related to the dead but were also created for astronomical purposes like the ones in U.K. and Europe. He hits out at the acknowledged account that mathematics and astronomy in India were the contributions of the Aryans giving various evidences that it was the tribal megalithic people with whom this credit lies with. The book ambles on the path which many fear to tread shattering many accepted myths; hence, this book is bound to raise many controversies and debates. Abundantly illustrated and lucidly written, this book takes us on a journey into the past which most of us are oblivious of. It is this venture into the unknown prehistory and discovery of a new India due to which possession of this book becomes a must.Printed Pages: 200. 104163

The Social Philosophy of Manu
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8187418478; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work entitled : 'The Social Philosophy of Manu : A Critical Study' is the result of intensive study on some important aspects of the social philosophy of Manu as embedded in his pioneering work- 'Manvadharmasastra'. An effort has been made to raise some problems in connection with various social affairs like the status of woman in the society, the philosophical implication of the caste system (Varnavyavastha), the status of a ruler, the importance of the penal code in our society, other social disease etc. A systematic study is undertaken to highlight all of them to have a glimpse of these social aspects along with some controversial remarks on woman and other social policies. I have tried to defend Manu's position following the commentaries of Medhatithi and Kulluka. These remarks are not always to be taken in a literal sense. Some of the remarks on woman and other social evils leveled as derogatory-can go in favour of the honour of the ladies and other evils if proper interpretation of them is given carefully the line of different commentators and my independent reasoning.Printed Pages: 185. 104114

Education as Freedom: Tagore's Paradigm
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098224; Hardcover; New; New; 
Tagore literature with all its cornucopian variety has always been a rich quarry for translators for well over a century, ever since Sister Nivedita and Jagadish Chandra Bose produced the earliest translations of Rabindranath’s short stories. And his translators are legion. Yet so much remains to be translated. Education as Freedom—Tagore’s Paradigm brings together in translation a number of Rabindranath’s major essays, speeches and letters spread over five decades—a period when he came into his own not only as a world poet but also as a notable exponent of an alternative paradigm to colonial education in British India—an exponent who had his own syncretic vision and spoke with formidable original authority to intervene in the contemporary Eurocentric colonial discourse in education. Of course this unique Tagorean vision is epitomised in Visva- Bharati University and the Visva-Bharati saga is an integral part of the history of the emergence of modern India. Celebrating the sesquicentenary of Rabindranath Tagore’s birth, this comprehensive anthology presents in a chronological sequence memorable essays and speeches which chart the complicated growth and development of his missionary vision and its product—an alternative approach which is by no means an essentialist or revivalist enterprise but indeed an alternative paradigm—often problematic and multi-layered, superbly inclusive as well as liberating in scope and far-reaching in its singular insights that oftener than not anticipate issues and problems with which the country finds itself grappling even today. The letters selected offer a fascinating lowdown on how this philosophy translated into practice on the applied side in the day-to-day life of the students and teachers at Visva-Bharati who—Rabindranath believed— should seize every opportunity to acquire hands-on experience in doing everything that shaped their life in Santiniketan.Printed Pages: 320. 106532

Ethical Issues in Anthropological Research
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351250906; Hardcover; New; New; 
Anthropologists criticize some components of bioethics because of their abstract principles derived from arm-chair philosophy and lack of cross-cultural analysis (and ethnocentric view) for that they prepare a readymade ethical code of conduct which may differ significantly from culture to culture. This volume aims to investigate such area of bioethics which may criticize in the light of anthropological fieldwork. The work also finds some area of bioethics to study cultural construct of morality including cross-cultural analysis keeping in mind cultural relativism in true sense.

4 Victoria Terrace: Memoirs of a Surgeon
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8187358637; Hardcover; New; New; 
4 Victoria Terrace: Memoirs of a Surgeon covers tumultuous times in recent history, beginning from the later years of British Rule. Rarely does one come across a doctor''s account of what it meant to experience and handle human tragedies of the magnitude of the Bengal Famine or the Partition of the country.Apart from being a doctor''s travelogue, there is hardly any major city in the world that Dr Chatterjee has not visited, this book also unfolds an extremely perceptive description of one of our most important social institutions: medical colleges and hospitals. We also get an inside view of the medical profession itself, one of the most politicized at every level, but not without enduring friendships and knowledge sharing.hese pages contain some tragic stories of dedicated brilliant doctors, who become the victims of their own profession. There are also accounts of almost miraculous surgery that saves patients, all but dead, and often just a few hours old.Printed Pages: 288. 101930

1857 in North East India: A Reconstruction From Folk and Oral Sources
Akansha Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8183701310; Hardcover; New; New; 
An attempt is made in this volume to delineate how history is carefully blended with the oral tradition to construct a picture of the past. n nThe balled Jangiyar Geet, the `Song of the warriors `, is a very valuable source material in formulating the appropriate history of our glorious past--the War of independence, 1857. n nThe common people, primarily the fishermen community and the peasantry, till today, recite in mass gatherings commemorating the sacrifice of the patriotic soldiers of the 34 N.I. regiment, who embraced martyrdom to liberate the motherland from the British. The events and the reaction and the attitude of the people as reflected in these songs and folk-ballad help us reconstruct the so called history of the power and his allays, and can make the history of the voiceless, -- a popular history of our own.

Encyclopaedia of Upanishads and Its Philosophy, 4 Vols
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2002; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the long History of man's endeavor to grasp the fundamental truths of being, the Metaphysical treatises known as the Upanisads hold an honoured place. They represent the earnest efforts of the profound thinkers of early India to solve the problems of the origin, the nature, and the destiny of man and of the universe, or-more technically-the meaning and value of 'knowing' and 'being'. They are replete with sublime conceptions and with intuitions of universal truth. Here are found intimations of the inadequacy of mere nature-worship and of the falsity of ritualistic ceremonialism. Here are expressed the momentous discoveries that the various gods of polytheistic belief are but numerous special manifestations of the One Power of the universe, and that the supreme object of worship is this variously revealed, partially elusive, all-comprehending Reality. Here in the Upanisads are set forth, in concrete example as well as in dogmatic instruction.In the long history of man's endeavor to grasp the fundamental truths of being, the metaphysical treatises known as the Upanisads hold an honoured place.

Here are expressed the momentous discoveries that the various gods of polytheistic belief are but numerous special manifestations of the One Power of the universe, and that the supreme object of worship is this variously revealed, partially elusive, all-comprehending Reality. Here in the Upanisads are set forth, in concrete example as well as in dogmatic instruction, two opposing theories of life: an ignorant, narrow, selfish way of life which seeks temporary, unsatisfying, unreal ends; and a way of life which seeks to relate itself to the Supreme Reality of the universe, so as to escape from the needless misery of ordinary existence into undying bliss. The Upanisads attract as many devoted readers as they have for the past twenty-five centuries. The Upanisads appeal to the student of the history of philosophy who desires to know some of the earliest answers reached in India for the ever insistent problems of man and the universe and for the ideals of the higher existence; the special student of India who strives to understand the essence as well as the externals of its culture and traditions; the religious teacher and worker in East and West who seeks to apprehend the aspirations and spiritual ideals of The Hindu soul; the educated Hindu who feels a special affection for, and interest in, the sacred writings of his land; and the deep thinker who searches in arcane texts for clues to the solution of life's mysteries-all of these students will turn constantly to the Upanisads as an authoritative compendium of Indian meta-physical teachings. This pioneering reference work wishes to present a rendering of the fundamental philosophy and truths the Upanisads talk of. With contributions from some of the foremost scholars in the field of Indology and philosophical contemplation, the set should be a welcome addition to any collection on Indian studies.Printed Pages: 1600. 100647

Encyclopaedia of Vedic Philosophy: The Age, Religion, Pantheon, Philosophy, Traditions and Teachers of the Vedas, 9 Vols
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2002; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The orthodox Hindu regards the Vedas as his highest written authority. Any subsequent scripture, if he is to regard it as valid, must be in agreement with them, it may expand them, it may develop them, and still be recognized, but it must not contradict them. They are to him, as nearly as any human document can be, the expression of divine truth. At the same time it would be a mistake to suppose that his allegiance to their authority is, in the final analysis, blind and automatic. If he considers them the word of God, it is because he believes their truth to be verifiable, immediately, at any moment, in his own personal experience. If he found, on due examination, that it was not so definable, he would reject it. If he found that any part of it was not so definable, he would reject that. In short, he conceives that his faith in the Vedas is as well founded, and on grounds exactly as critical as is the natural scientist’s belief in any physical law. In other words, the study of the Vedas, is first-hand experience of God. The Vedas teach the knowledge of God, and lay down work as a means to that knowledge---the word work here signifying both sacrificial rites and unselfish performance of secular duty. When through work our hearts are purified, we are ripe for divine knowledge. Work and knowledge these two are the subjects of the Vedas, and name the parts into which Rg, Sàma, Yajur and Atharva are each divided. Against the background of these conceptions the orthodox view of the origin of the Vedas may be quickly sketched. At the very beginning of each cycle, holy seers are born into the world, men who in previous universes have ascended far towards the supreme goal and are therefore especially capable of perceiving divine truth. These blessed saints---ûŸis, the Hindus call them---meditate on God, and while so meditating discern the everlasting laws of the spirit, and it is the concrete record of these laws, so discerned, that constitutes, in each cycle, the most authoritative or sacred writings. The record of the meditations of the ûŸis born at the beginning of our own cycle is, then, what we know as the Vedas. This Encyclopaedia of Vedic Philosophy fulfills the need for a vast introductory work of reference to this diverse philosophical subject. The nine-volume set, with contributions from some of the foremost Indological scholars from around the world, incorporates the finest writings on the Vedas and the philosophy they propound. This work is perhaps the largest comprehensive reference source on the subject.Printed Pages: 3150. 100648

Philosophy of Saivism: History, Philosophy and Literature of Saivism
Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Saivism, may be defined as the setting aside of the triune equality of Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva, and the merging of the former two Gods in the God -- Siva. But it is also more than this. It is supreme being, infinite, eternal, an exempt from subjection to the law of ultimate absorption into the universal spirit. Rudra appears quite early in the Veda with a well-recognized and well-marked personality of his own. He is an important deity, whose anger is to be dreaded and whose favour is to be propitiated. Probably the first office or function connected with him was that of directing and controlling the rage of the howling storms. As God of gale and tempest, he is father of the destructive storm-winds, who are also called Rudras, and generally identified with the Maruts. He is also nearly relate to time (kala), the all-consumer, and indeed afterwards identified with him. Siva became to his worshippers the great God (Maha-Deva) and lord of the universe (Jagat-pitri, Visva-natha) who, although he has numerous forms, is generally worshipped under one mystical shape -- a plain upright stone, the sign or symbol (Linga) of generative and creative power -- scattered in millions of shrines over every part of India. Unquestionably all Hindus, even the strictest Vaishnavas, are ready to pay homage to Siva in his characters of dissolver and regenerator. The book is designed to be an informative treatise devoted to Siva."Printed Pages: 608. 100656
