The Modern Condition of Educational Thought
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 812120688X; Hardcover; New; New; 
This inquiry attempts to address one problem that Teachers hardly ever clarify the meaning of the Knowledge they teach. They are not inclined to have a hard look at the rules for the Construction and use of knowledge. Instead, they prefer to operate with vague but nevertheless fixed ideas about the Nature and the selection of knowledge and thus do not do Justice to a possible analysis of meaning. Too often are they satisfied with 'ordinary' educational thought. Against this, the present inquiry tries to Advocate 'reflective' educational thought by employing a clearer view of essentialist and contextualist concepts used in daily practice of Teaching and learning.Printed Pages: 184. 105976

Education in Ayurveda: A Re-Constructional Analysis
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 8121203996; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ayurveda was a system in Ancient India which had its supreme duty in preventing Diseases and maintaining health, rather than in curing diseases. In this it followed the principle of congruence between content and form, content Meaning a particular Corpus of Knowledge and the Ways of imparting and acquiring it, form meaning life and the forms of life. It was not a special discipline which made Ayurveda preventive but a way of life which enabled people to create conditions for a healthy (and happy) life. If this was true and possible in the past, then we shall think of adopting this principle of congruence between content and form to modern life as well. For this, the author has developed a theoretical Framework in which primary Prevention in its widest Sense takes the centre as a strategy of Health promotion. In this contribution to a Philosophy of education, the Sutra Sthana of the Caraka Samhita, one of the main ayurveda texts, is analysed. Though much emphasis is put on life-long self-education, it is also made clear that a modern Ayurveda Health Education has to become community education in order to Help people perceive their World by conscientisating their situation and by this empower them to create new social circumstances. This education, then, can become an integral part of popular education by, amongst other things, employing P. Freire's concept of Dialogue which cannot exist in the absence of profound Love for the world and humankind.Printed Pages: 228. 105753

Infinite Circle: Teachings in Zen
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2002; 1570625913; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
In Infinite Circle, one of America's most distinctive Zen teachers takes a back-to-basics approach to Zen. Glassman illuminates three key teachings of Zen Buddhism, offering line-by-line commentary in clear, direct language: The Heart Sutra: the Buddha's essential discourse on emptiness, a central sutra of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. "The Identity of Relative and Absolute": an eighth-century poem by Shih-t'ou His-ch'ien, a key text of the Soto Zen school. The Zen precepts: the rules of conduct for laypeople and monks. His commentaries are based on workshops he gave as Abbot of the Zen Community of New York, and they contain within them the principles that became the foundation for the Greyston Mandala of community development organizations and the Zen Peacemaker Order.

Silparatnakosa: A Glossary of Orissan Temple Architecture
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8120812166; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Silparatnakosa is a seventeenth-century CE Orissan text describing all the parts of the temple and the most important temple types of Orissa, such as the Mañjusri and Khakara. It also contains a section on sculpture (Prasadamurti) and an appendix on image-making. The text, though much later than the temples described, reflects the still-living tradition and contributes much to clarify the terminology of Orissan temple architecture. It also contains interesting references to the symbolism of the temple and its elements. The most important contribution of this text, however, lies in the identification of the Mañjusri Temple with the Sricakra, which has helped to re-identify the Rajarani Temple at Bhubaneswar as a temple dedicated to Rajarajesvari in the form of a Sricakra.Printed Pages: 239. 101616

Samvidullasah: Manifestation of Divine Consciousness Swami Lakshman Joo, Saint-Scholar of Kashmir Shaivism
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8124604142; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Swami Lakshman Joo Raina, also called Lakshman Brahmacarin and Ishvara Svarupa (1907-1991) was one of the greatest saints of 20th century India, who was at the same time an extraordinary scholar who relived and revived the almost forgotten tradition of Kashmir Shaivism. His high spiritual state was matched by his profound knowledge of the Shaiva scriptures and of the great thinkers and commentators of the tradition -- Abhinavagupta, Kshemaraja and others. Swami Lakshman Joo lived a secluded life in his ashram in Kashmir, but he taught the texts of Kashmir Shaivism to Pandits and scholars from different countries, besides giving spiritual guidance to a number of seekers and disciples. On the occasion of his Birth Centenary, a volume in his memory is being brought out containing articles by scholar-disciples, devotees and relatives which throw light on the extraordinary life of this saint and on his contribution to reviving and continuing the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism. Articles on his life by his close disciple Prabha Devi and his scholar-disciples Jaideva Singh and Jankinath Kaul 'Kamal', an exhaustive article on his place in the Kashmirian Shaiva tradition by Professor Alexis Sanderson of Oxford, to mention only a few, provide an insight into his saintly personality and his great qualities as a teacher. Even scholars and seekers who have never met him and have been deeply influenced by his spiritual presence have contributed an account of their experience. The volume is richly illustrated by historical photographs which provide a visual testimony of the life of Swami Lakshman Joo. A list of his published works is an important complement.Printed Pages: 272 with 52 coloured & b/w illustrations. 100424

Abhinavagupta's Hermeneutics of the Absolute: Anuttaraprakriya. An Interpretation of His Paratrisika Vivarana
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd. in association with National Mission for Manuscripts; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380829005; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The Paratrishika Vivarana by the great Kashmiri philosopher and mystic Abhinavagupta is an extensive commentary on the Paratrishika Tantra, and it is one of the most profound texts, not only of non-dualist Kashmir Shaivism, but of Indian philosophy and mysticism in general. The present work attempts to make this difficult text accessible, by culling out the important themes and offering an interpretation. The main focus is on the understanding of the Absolute (Anuttara) and the ways to realize it. The central theme of mantra also leads to a mysticism of language with its philosophical implications. All these reflections and practices are inscribed in the theory that "everything is related to the totality", "every part contains the whole of reality" (sarvam sarvatmakam). It is this holistic vision of Abhinavagupta, based on the Tantras, which makes this work so relevant in our times of fragmented aspects of life and knowledge in search of integration. No doubt, in the view of the Tantra and of Abhinavagupta, language and mantra provide the key. This fascinating book is an important contribution to studies and interpretations on Kashmir Shaivism, its spirituality and philosophy, and on Abhinavagupta in particular. 036704

3760 Bh. Krishnamurti
Telugu Verbal Bases: A Comparative and Descriptive Study
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1972; 8120823249; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
It is now over a century since Dravidian philology came into existence with the publication of Robert Caldwellís Comparative Grammar of the Dravidian languages in 1856. Linguistic science, both historical and descriptive, has since made tremendous advances throughout the world; but the progress made in the Dravidian field has not been commensurate with what could be expected in a full century. However, with the employment of better methods, and the help of the contributions of many Western philologists as well as some Indian scholars,we have now at least a better understanding of the many problems of Dravidian phonology, although no progress worthy of mention has been made in solving the problems of comparative morphology of Dravidian. The present work, which may be regarded as a pioneering attempt in the field of Dravidian philology, was undertaken with little knowledge of its magnitude. It was believed at that time that a thorough study of the derivation of the Telugu verb on a comparative level would provide a basic sample for phonological observations and form a basis for investigation of noun-formation in Telugu, eventually facilitating the preparation of an etymological dictionary of Telugu. Though the treatment in this work is confined to the verbal bases, most of the observations in phonology and derivation are equally valid of application to the other parts of the vocabulary. An attempt has been made to show, if not to decide, the place of Telugu in the whole family of the Dravidian languages by setting up isoglosses for the distribution of phonological, derivational, and also partly morphological features.Printed Pages: 534. 102568

The Mind in Early Buddhism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121510198; Second Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book is an attempt to comprehend the Buddhist concept of mind (citta in Pali) when sectarianism was not exertive yet in the Pali literature. This book is based for its materials on the Tipitaka whose dating and stratification-especially the Suttapitaka which is most substantial of the Buddhist canonical literature and best able to serve a sense of purity-are examined in view that the earlier a particular text is, the more authentic it should be. The mind in question is worked upon as a technical term and a concept. Its lexical meanings in general and applied ones in the Buddhist canonical context are surveyed. How the fundamental and condensed shades of citta figure in the Buddhist system as well as in the contemporary Brahmanic ones is sketched out. With the supplement of lexical elucidation, tabular illustrations and doctrinal relevance the work should virtually exhaust all the cases of conceivable citta in the Suttapitaka so long as its literary occurrence is concerned. The matters inherent of psycho-philosophical interest, however, will be elaborated on with further analysis and deeper ideation. Printed Pages: 232. 001663

3765 Bhabani Bhattacharya
A Goddess Named Gold
Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8122204600; Softcover; New; 
This modern fable of rural India is a masterly satire on those who live by the lure of gold. Amongst the characters are a pretty girl, a wandering mistrel and a luxuriously mustachioed seth. Skilfully blending fable and reality it delves deep into the human mind.The plot centres around a touchstone given to Meera by her sagacious grandfather. It is believed that the amulet would enable Meera to turn copper into gold, provided she acts kindly as a natural and spontaneous expression of herself. 'Wearing it on your person, if you do an act of kindness, real kindness, then all copper on your body will turn to gold... parted from your arm, the touchstone will be dead, a worthless pebble.'It is hugely entertaining tale, yet it disturbs. It disturbs as a warning and as a prophecy.Printed Pages: 320. 106634

Folk Life and Culture of Odisha
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8174791701; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book attempts to present an accurate picture of the different aspects of the folk life and culture of south Odisha during the colonial era from historical point of view. Lying between the north and south India across a natural highway along the eastern coast of India, south Odisha acts like a cultural bridge between the Aryan culture of north and Dravidian culture of south. This region occupies a distinct place in the folk cultural tradition of India. The geographical location, the topographic feature, the religious and literary background, the beauty and the bounty of the nature all have jointly contributed significantly towards the culmination of its unique pattern of folk culture. It is regarded as the cradle of many folk dances, music, festivals, beliefs and art. Drawing primarily upon the original sources the book encompasses, the nature and composition of folk people, varieties of folk tales, origin and growth of folk songs, folk dances and theatres. Meticulous care has been taken to throw light on the folk festivals, folk beliefs, folk art and crafts, folk medicines and folk methods of treatment.Printed Pages: 368 with 18 Colour Illustrations. 104140

3775 Bhagatsaran Shukl
Ragarnavam: With Ragacandrika Vyakhya (Prakashika: 7)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789380829050; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The experiences and knowledge from our past are recorded in manuscripts which have been handed down to us over several thousand years. The Government of India, through the Department of Culture, took note of the importance of the vast tangible heritage and in order to preserve and conserve as well as to make access to this wealth easy, established the National Mission for Manuscripts. In order to disseminate the knowledge content of manuscripts, the Mission has taken up several programmes such as lectures, seminars and workshops. The Mission has published the proceedings of the above-said programmes under the following series: Samrakshika (on conservation), Kritibodha (critically edited texts), Tattvabodha (comprises lectures based on some manuscripts delivered by eminent scholars) and Samiksika (research-oriented papers as presented in the seminars). This year, the National Mission for Manuscripts has taken up a project for publishing rare and unpublished manuscripts in three formats — (a) Facsimile, (b) Critical edition (illustrated and single copy manuscript), (c) Critical edition with annotation and translation. This new series has been named as Prakashika. Ragarnavam, critically edited by Acharya Bhagawat Sharan Shukla, comes under this series. The happiness from the knowledge of music is well-known. From the very beginning of creation, music was the part and parcel of human civilization. Its relevance to our lives is known from the Vedic period. Besides nataka, Rishi Bharata is considered as the acarya of music too. To enrich this knowledge, many saint-composers devoted themselves to shastraic compositions. Ragarnavam is one of such compositions. Though no details are available on the compositor, this work is a sufficient proof of the composer's mastery. Ragarnavam, it is believed, was composed somewhere in the sixteenth century. It is a collection of eighty lyrics. Acharya Bhagawat Sharan Shukla has edited and written commentary on it, in the backdrop of the two available manuscripts of this composition. This composition introduces nearly eighty-seven ragas — some are famous, some are little known. While this composition details famous ragas like Bhairav, Bhairavi, Vasant, Torhi, and Malkosh, it features ragas like Rodika, Saurashtri, Aothi, Yogi Bangalika, Kurai, as well. This book will definitely be a boon to the music lovers. It can even entice researchers on music. This volume is part of the ongoing efforts of the National Mission for Manuscripts, giving exposure to the unpublished Sanskrit volumes.Printed Pages: 256. 100360

Iron and Social Change in Early India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195667115; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The book puts forth selected pieces of writing which highlight the major debates that have emerged around iron and social change in early India. The spread of iron technology, with considerable chronological variation, into the historico-cultural regions has been perceived by a group of historians as an important marker of the transition to full-fledged sedentary agriculture and other constituent elements of the early historical civilization. B.P. Sahu introduces the reader to the various protagonists in the debate and their positions and places them in the context of the historical period. He includes seminal essays by eminent scholars of ancient Indian history such as D.D.Kosambi , R.S.Sharma, D.K.Chakrabarti, and Shereen Ratnagar. The last section includes essays which provide a fresh regional perspective: these look at Northern India, Central India, Kathiawar, and Tamil Nadu respectively. Printed Pages: 272. 013229

Subjugated Nomads: The Lambadas Under the Rule of the Nizams
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125039619; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book traces the historical transition of the Lambada community of Hyderabad State under the Nizams during colonial rule. The study spans nearly two centuries—from the early eighteenth to about the middle of the twentieth century. The author shows how this community, originally caravan traders, confronted the colonial or modern state power which had adversely transformed their lives. The market economy and growth of transport hampered the Lambadas’ caravan trade. The state discouraged their nomadic ways, inducing them to become peasants on wastelands and in forest tracts. From the middle of the nineteenth century, they had to depend on cattle-raising and agriculture, often becoming agricultural labourers. The state came to view their extension of agriculture as a threat to forest conservation, subjecting them to harassment and eviction. They began losing their plots of land through usurious money-lending and extortion. Zamindars claimed rights over wastelands, and extracted taxes. Exploitation by various agencies reduced the Lambadas to working as bonded labourers on farms. During famines and the off-season, some resorted to dacoity. This led the state to brand them as a criminal community and relocate them as ‘criminal tribes’ under surveillance. Protracted suffering and victimisation compelled the Lambadas to revolt, which was transformed into the Telangana armed struggle at the end of the Nizams’ rule. The Lambadas had tried to respond to the challenges faced through a programme of self-reform. From the 1820s, leaders emerged from within the community, who rearticulated Lambada history, spiritual beliefs and culture. These find expression in the oral tradition which was crucial in shaping their community identity, now a significant element in democratic politics. Printed Pages: 320. 032729
