Charles Metcalfe in India: Ideas and Administration 1806-1835
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1968; 8121503655; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Sir Charles Metcalfe was one of the greatest of the East India Company's long line of able civil servants. He came to India in 1801 as an Assistant in the Political Department of Lord Wellesley's establishment at Calcutta, when he was barely sixteen years old. Later he rose to occupy the highest position in India i.e. of the Governor General in 1835. Metcalfe had passed through a most formative period of British rule making a notable contribution in the growth of Indian administrative policy. He was a contemporary of Munro, Malcolm, Elphinstone, Bentinck and Auckland, and inspired a host of younger generation of leaders. Metcalfe evolved the principles and methods of his administration in Delhi as Resident. But he was also influenced by the reform movements and reform writings of the time in the West, with which he was closely acquainted. Later during his Membership of the Supreme Council in Calcutta and his short acting Governor-Generalship, he sought to mould the policies according to his own viewpoint. An analysis of these reveals a pattern in his thought, some broad principles and ideas running through them. These ideas flowed from his understanding of Bodin, Burke and Rousseau; at the same time, they blended well with the spirit of the times, which symbolised peace, reform and an urge to initiate change in society. In this book the author has attempted to reconstruct the story of Charles Metcalfe's activities against the background of Indian society. His manifold administrative measures relating to land revenue, judiciary and government press and education, and the ideas underlying them are herein examined, and in the process, an interpretation of the then administration is undertaken. The British still felt insecure in their Indian possessions, hence a search for a social base for their rule was being made. Some among them attempted to regulate the relationship among groups and classes of people with a view to reorganizing the social forces. Also they aimed at initiating social change with a broader view. Although Metcalfe did not favour a policy to usher in change at any cost, yet the social consequences of his measures were bound to be far-reaching. In the ultimate analysis, he helped in setting a guideline for future policy. Printed Pages: 268 with 1 map. 014740

India, Central Asia and Russia: Three Millennia of Contacts
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8173052948; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
India and Central Asia had close contacts in various fields of human activities from the earliest times. Archaeological excavations of stone and bronze cultures in Central Asia have brought to light a similarity with cultures existing in northwest India of the same time. There are striking similarities between the finds from Altyntepe in southern Turkmenistan and the relics of Harappan Culture in northwest India. More concrete historical evidence can he found during Kushana period. These relations became closer in the medieval times because the founders of the Delhi Sultanate and the Mughal Empire in the 13th and 16th centuries respectively hailed from Central Asian lands. Along with conquerors and founders of the ruling dynasties came the scholars, poets, scientists and Sufi saints. Religious influence spreading from one direction to the other set in motion a process of reciprocal cultural enrichment. There was also unhindered overland trade carried by merchant caravans. Like Indo-Central Asian relations, Indo-Russian relations also go back to remote past. There have been deep and abiding links because of geopolitical and strategic considerations. However, Central Asia has been continuously a vital link in relations between India and Russia. The present volume aims to trace these contacts and gives an overview of the origin, historical development, present state of relationship and future challenges. India, Central Asia, and Russia represent a certain harmony of originally distant and distinct cultures and civilizations finding a certain post-ideological affinity based on geography, historical links and common technological and economic challenges. The core of this conceptual agreement and its policy consequences is in pluralism, secularism, multi-ethnicity and cultural synthesis. Printed Pages: 370 with 2 figures & maps. 100103

Hindus must pray daily morning at sunrise and evening at sunset one must have divine communication with God, and ask Him for Light and Guidance in life. Hindu scriptures abound in prayers. They are of different types and of complex nature, and form part of various rituals and ceremonies. In our daily life, however, we need not be bothered with these complexities. A few simple prayers, will serve our needs beautifully. The only thing we have to constantly keep in mind is the purity of our hearts and sincerity of purpose. We cannot offer prayers precariously and half-heartedly.Printed Pages: 89. 102068

Ancient Metal Technology and Archaeology of South Asia
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8173051771; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
The focus of the Book is primarily on the ancient metal technology of South Asia but its not a technical treatise. Archaeometallurgy has been situated in the matrix of archaeology. Such studies have a meaning only in the human Context of the past. The introductory chapter of the book emphasises, by giving examples, what such technical studies should aim at and what all one can glean about the past through them. The main emphasis is on copper/bronze but other metals have been duly covered: silver, gold, tin, arsenic, lead, brass and iron. As more detailed work is available now for the Indus civilisation and its antecedent cultures, it has been discussed in two detailed chapters. But the other chalcolithic cultures and the copper hoards have also been dealt with in adequate detail. The History of brass is quite polemical and it has therefore been given one full chapter. The chapter on iron summarises all the relevant issues but one could not go into all the details, as it requires a book to itself. The Central Himalayan region has been shown to be equally important for understanding the archaeometallurgy of South Asia. Linguistic evidence has been used to emphasise some of the new perspectives. Socio-economic implications of the archaeometallurgical evidence have been thoroughly discussed. The development of Indian metal technologies has been given in a global perspective but with a different bias. So far the emphasis has always been on West Asia. For the first time South Asian archaeometallurgy has been studied in the context of the eastern cultures of China, Thailand and Japan. The book gives an up-to-date summary of the recent archaeometallurgical evidence from China, Japan and Thailand. The problems to be addressed to in the future studies have also been highlighted. All in all it is a book with a different perspective, written without using much technical jargon, tracing the evolution of metal technologies in an archaeological context. It is addressed to the general reader, but a specialist will also find adequate detail that one may need.Printed Pages: 272 with 3 maps & 57 halftone illustrations. 100199

South Asian Prehistory
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8173052360; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
This Book on South Asian prehistory covers the story of humans from the beginning of the Stone Age to the advent of Agriculture and animal husbandry. The authors have not confined themselves to merely typological descriptions of tools but have tried to look beyond -- to the humans and their society that created them. As the authors have done considerable work on palaeoenvironment of Kashmir and Rajasthan, they have provided an environmental backdrop to the History of human cultures in the subcontinent. They have also provided a chronological framework to Stone Age Cultures based on a variety of physical techniques. This is the first time that the South Asian Stone Age Cultures are being described in a multidisciplinary framework. The book gives an interesting backdrop of the latest findings of hominids from Africa and other continents. It starts with the Early and Middle Palaeolithic Cultures and then devotes a chapter to the transitional Stone Age Cultures, which eventually led to domestication of plants and animals. The chapter on Early Farming Cultures not only gives regional pictures of the Neolithic Cultures but also discusses the far fetched effects of the major transition from hunting and food collecting to agriculture. It shows that the agriculture revolution has been a mixed blessing as in its wake have come a variety of diseases, epidemics and other calamities. A full chapter has been devoted to rock art studies, giving an up-to-date summary of the regional rock art traditions of the South, of the Himalayas and of Central India. In the concluding chapter the authors summarise the evidence and also point towards the need for further research in various related fields.Printed Pages: 284 with 36 figures, 6 maps & 35 halftone illustrations. 100198

Central Himalayas: An Archaeological, Linguistic and Cultural Synthesis
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8173051321; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
This book on the Central Himalayas surveys the cultural and archaeological evidence in an inter-disciplinary perspective. Though a variety of interdisciplinary data have been used, the approach is holistic. The book is focused on Kumaun and Garhwal, yet it is related to the sub-continental framework with a global backdrop. The main emphasis has been on prehistory. This is the first systematic and scientific documentation of rock art and cup marks found in the region. It also deals with the megalithic problem and discusses the different types of megaliths found in the region. Through critical sifting of the data, the oldest megaliths/burials have been identified and some of them have been 14C dated.The ancient metal technological evidence has been thoroughly investigated and its role in supplying copper and iron to the Gangetic plains has been discussed. The archaeological and cultural data are interpreted in an ethnographic framework. Recent linguistic research has also been used to understand the Central Himalayan prehistory. Though the emphasis of the book is on prehistory, a chapter is devoted to historical archaeology, architecture and sculpture and iconography. Some important cultural symbols like Nanda have been discussed in their multiple forms and how much they mean to the local people. The cultural history of this region is brought right up to the modern times. The necessity and viability of the proposed state of Uttaranchal has also been discussed. The cultural scene is presented as a continuous process from the hoary past to a lofty future. Printed Pages: 214 with 47 figures 25 colour illustrations. 100203

Prayaga: The Site of Kumbha Mela
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8173052034; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
The present work is an attempt to outline the essential features of the cultural History of Prayaga from varied sources with a view to bringing out that magnetic quality of the Tirtharaja which has been attracting multitudes from far and near. The greatness of Prayaga, perceptible since the Vedic period, is adumbrated in the Epic-Puranic literature, and is attested by epigraphic records, Buddhist and Jaina texts, foreign (Chinese, Muslim and European) accounts, treatises on tirtha, and vernacular literature which received and developed further this great traditional lore about Prayaga. Archaeological evidences have also been accumulated to a considerable extent. The task of sifting and interpreting this immense material, contained inter alia in the numerous and varied texts is not easy. The most ticklish problem faced by the researcher consists of imparting the traditional pronouncements an interpretation intelligible to the modern world but without prejudice to their original import. As such the researcher is inevitably faced with innumerable odds. The success or failure of the present work is, therefore, to be viewed in the Context of these inherent difficulties and predicaments. If India had first attracted the attention of the West as the land of temples and Sadhus, her tirthas and melas pulling huge tides of humanity from far and near by their religio-cultural power also captured the imagination of the world in a big way It is a pity that Prayaga, traditionally the king of tirthas and the site of world's largest fair, could not be given an authentic cultural history of its own before the present work. This work essays the difficult task of distinguishing the religio-cultural lore of Prayaga from the outrageous domain of mysteries and wonders which it was initially consigned to and also the gazetteer-like uncritical approach of numerous journalistic works which do not rise above the level of a popular guide. The topical rather than exhaustive approach of the work taking into account all the aspects of Prayaga's religio-cultural personality preserves the spirit and depth of genuine research. The bite is not too big to be chewed. It probes the questions of sacred geography, Subtirthas, historicity of Aksayavata (the eternal fig tree) and religious suicide besides giving a critical and authenticated account of the ritual practices and a source-based history of the Kumbha Mela, including its various dimensions. The deep textual study, field work and handling of the relevant archeo-epigraphic material makes the Book both stimulating and instructive Inclusion of evocative and rare illustrations further add to the use-value of the Endeavour.Printed Pages: 200 with 6 maps & figures & 21 halftone illustrations. 100216

Judgement of Longevity
Ranjan Publications/ Chaukhamba Publications; New Delhi, India; 2003; Reprint; Softcover; New; Q
Determination of longevity is an integral part of horoscopy. It is as different and complicated as it is important. The author, who is both a teacher and a practitioner of the science, has dealt with the whole subject in an easy-to-understand style for the beginner as well as the seasoned. Beginning with the elementaries he proceeds in sequence to the more and more difficult aspects of the subject culminating ultimately in their synthesis. First he outlines the essential procedures for checking the correctness of time and date of Birth for preparing the birth chart and then he goes on to the identification of inauspicious yogas. There after follows a vivid discussion on Balarishtas and Arishta-bhangas etc. The philosophy behind the yogas has been logically explained. A deeper analysis of many methods of mathematical calculation of longevity and their application is enriched by practical examples.In short the Book is scholarly blend of the WISDOM of the sages and the practical experiences of the author. It is the only treatise of its kind on this very difficult subject of longevity and a dedicated attempt presenting the essence flowing through the churning of classical texts by the author.Printed Pages: 160. 101093

Nepal in Transition: A Way Forward
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411070; Hardcover; New; New; 
Nepal's democracy struggle has been continuing for more than six decades. Since it could not sustain a stable democratic framework even after several attempts in the past, many scholars are stating that Nepal is in permanent transition. Once again, however, it has bagged enormous success in the field of political transformation in 2006 through a highly successful but peacefully organised movement with participation of people from all fields in large numbers. But it could not deconstruct the position of the transition as it has failed to institutionalise the recently gained achievements by making a new constitution even after five years. The only positive thing is that Nepali people, along with various political parties, are still trying hard to resolve vital conflicting issues through dialogue, and come up with a new democratic constitution, though they have already missed three deadlines.Printed Pages: 376. 103199

5769 D.R. Nagaraj
The Flaming Feet and Other Essays: The Dalit Movement in India
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178242761; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Described by Ashis Nandy as the foremost non-Brahmin intellectual to emerge from India’s vast non-English speaking world, D.R. Nagaraj (1954–1998) was a profound political commentator and cultural critic. Nagaraj’s importance lies in consolidating and advancing some of the ideas of India’s leading Dalit thinker and icon, B.R. Ambedkar. Following Ambedkar, Nagaraj argues that the Dalit movement rejected the traditional Hindu world and thus dismissed untouchable pasts entirely; but, he says, rebels too require cultural memory. Their emotions of bewilderment, rage, and resentment can only be transcended via a politics of affirmation. This book gives us Nagaraj’s vision of caste in relation to Dalit politics. It theorizes the caste system as a mosaic of contestations centred around dignity, religiosity, and entitlement. Examining moments of untouchable defiance, Nagaraj argues out a politics of cultural affirmation within his redefinition of Dalit identity. More significantly, he argues against self-pity and rage in artistic imagination, and for re-creating the banished worlds of gods and goddesses. Nagaraj’s importance lies in suggesting a framework for an alliance of all the oppressed communities of India. This involves, first, a reconciliation of Gandhi and Ambedkar; second, a recognition that modernity has caused a technocide vis-ŕ-vis artisans; third, a reimagining of the Dalit rejection of history, for an alternative reading of untouchable pasts shows that these humiliated communities possessed an autonomous cultural domain. Nagaraj was that rare observer of politics who did not offer standard social science fare: in fact, he used the phrase ‘competent social scientist’ to damn the person he was speaking of. Not only were his themes unusual, his analytical methods and quirky reliance on cultural texts for analysis were equally so. He uses such material and focuses on these themes because his sensibility was shaped by the Dalit movement, as much as by the time he spent scrutinizing literary texts. This is a foundational text for Dalit Studies. Printed Pages: 276. 033889

5771 D.R. Nagaraj (Author) & Prathvi Datta Chandra Shobhi (Ed. & Intro.)
Listening to the Loom: Essays on Literature, Politics, and Violence
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 817824330X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Now, for the first time, a largely unknown and unavailable corpus of Nagaraj’s ideas and essays, amplifying and supplementing those in The Flaming Feet, are published in Listening to the Loom. This book provides Nagaraj’s most important writings on literature, politics, and violence. Some of the thirteen pieces here are translated from Kannada into English for the first time, while others long unavailable have been hunted out from scattered sources. The title of this book, Listening to the Loom, derives from a story recounted by the novelist U.R. Ananthamurthy. Walking in Kathmandu with Nagaraj, once, his companion asked him to stop and listen to the sound of a weaver’s loom that only he had heard. Ananthamurthy recalls saying to Nagaraj that so long as he, Nagaraj, retained this ability to hear the sound of a loom, he would never become a ‘Non-Resident Indian’ intellectual. In the present volume, Nagaraj’s ear for the sound and sense of things quintessentially Indian is everywhere apparent. Part I comprises essays on Kannada’s cultural experiences, Part II contains essays on politics and violence. All of them were mostly written between 1993 and 1998, the period when Nagaraj emerged as a mature thinker and produced some of his most important insights.Printed Pages: 388. 101963

The Lankavatara Sutra: A Mahayana text for the first time from the original Sanskrit with a foreword by Moti Lal Pandit
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The present translation of D.T. Suzuki is based upon the Sanskrit edition of Bunyu Nanjo (1923). The Lankavatara Sutra reflects those fundamental themes of Buddhism which the Mahayana in general cherishes and upholds. It looks at existence from the absolute and relative realms, and thinks that suffering will be experienced so long as one confines oneself to the realm of the relative. Since the relative cannot be ultimately realm, it has to be seen as nothing more than a projection of the mind. As to how to realize the ultimate truth of unity the text resorts to general Mahayana theory of Buddhalogy in which the Buddha is seen as the ultimate ontological principle. In order to realize unity with this ontic principle, we have to make use of such methods, which though relative, terminate in the realization of Enlightenment, These methods are spoken of as Skilful Means. As a spiritual manual, the text points out as to how the Bodhisattvas, on account of their unlimited compassion for sentient beings, work for the salvation of all. While delineating on the theme of Bodhisattvas, the text thereby speaks about the ten vows of a Bodhisattva. It is in incarnating these vows of a Bodhisattva. It is in incarnating these vows within that a real turn-about or spiritual transformation occurs, and thereby are uprooted the roots of ignorance. The text, thus, offers a spiritual banquet to those who want to taste the bliss eternal. Printed Pages: 356. 032995

Essays in Zen Buddhism: Third Series
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121509572; Reprint; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In this book the author has tried to trace the relationship which exists between Zen and the two chief Mahayana Sutras the Gandavyuha and Prajnaparamita, and then the transformation, through which Indian Buddhism had to go while adapting itself to Chinese psychology. The Chinese are a practical people quite different from the Indian, who are highly endowed with the power of abstraction as well as an inexhaustible mine of imagination. It was natural that the Mahayana teachings had to be transformed as to make them appreciated by the Chinese. This meant that the Gandavyuha and Prajnaparamita were to be transformed into Zen dialogues. Printed Pages: 396 with 31 illustrations. 032270

In this book the chief stress has been placed on the study of 'The Koan Exercise', which at present constitutes almost the alpha and omega of Zen discipline especially as it is practised in the Rinzai School of Zen sect. The Koan technique is full of pitfalls, but its development was inevitable and without it Zen might not have survived. In this volume author has also included some Suiboku paintings by both Japanese and Chinese artists. Printed Pages: 388 with 20 illustrations. 032269

Living By Zen
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8121510015; Reprint; Paperback; New; 12 x 18 Cm 
This book contains a number of essays which D.T. Suzuki wrote from time to time concerning the specificity and uniqueness of Zen Buddhism, or the school of Buddhism that values meditative practice more than philosophical thinking. This book may be considered as an introduction to Zen on account of the concern shown for such themes which a beginner needs to know.In the very first essay is explained as to what Zen way of life denotes. Many find it difficult to comprehend the language of Zen. That is the author has made an attempt at clarifying the Zen idea of a koan, which is a paradoxical question verging almost on absurdity. It is believed that enlightenment or satori comes to be once a koan is understood. The book offers a rich banquet to those who want to taste the flavour of the feast of Zen.

Studies in the Lankavatara Sutra: One of the most important texts of Mahayana Buddhism, in which almost all its principal tenets are presented, including the teaching of Zen
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121508339; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Lankavatara Sutra is one of the most important Mahayana texts, and the Nepalese Buddhists consider it to be one of the nine canonical texts. The text contains almost all the main ideas, both philosophical and theological, of Mahayana Buddhism. The Yogacara School of Mahayana considers this text to be its fundamental text, as it contains all those ideas of idealism, like Mind-only, store-house-consciousness, which would form the basis of the philosophy of this school. As the text is terse, difficult to understand, and complex insofar as the presentation of ideas is concerned, the author has tried his best to explain the basic ideas of the Lankavatara in the context of historical evolution of Buddhism, which culminated in the emergence of Mahayana. In the first part of the book the author has made a textual study of the text in the context of various translations that were carried out in China. Simultaneously the author also has pointed out the impact of the text exerted upon Chinese and Japanese Buddhism, and particularly upon the Zen. In the rest of the book the author has engaged himself in explaining the complex philosophical ideas that are to be found in the text, and how these ideas were made use of by various Buddhist schools. The author also points out the intimate relationship that exists between the Lankavatara and Zen Buddhism. Although not exclusively a Zen text, yet its impact upon Zen cannot be denied. The non-Zen ideas of the text, particularly those pertaining to the Yogacara, have been discussed by the author in the third part of the book. The author has prepared a glossary of Sanskrit terms for the benefit of Chinese and Japanese readers. The book, thus, has been written for all those who are deeply interested in Buddhist thought and philosophy. The Studies in the Lankavatara Sutra is the first attempt ever made at studying systematically the philosophical ideas and religious practices that are to be found in the Lankavatara Sutra. Those interested in Mahayana Buddhism will greatly benefit from the scholarly study of Prof. Suzuki of this important text. Printed Pages: 496. 027994

This book is of a historical nature and is intended to give readers a faithful account of the historical development of Zen Buddhism. However Zen is not merely of historical interest; it has importance for the present day. History reveals the form and leads to the essence of things. In historical research we are guided by the things themselves, and we try to comprehend their response and their teaching. The object of the book is to put the reader into a close contact with Zen as possible to elucidate its inner form from history and make its living values apparent.

5797 D.T. Suzuki; Edited By William Barrett
Zen Buddhism: Selected Writings of D.T. Suzuki
Three Leaves Press; 038548349X; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
No other figure in history has played a bigger part in opening the West to Buddhism than the eminent Zen author, D.T. Suzuki, and in this reissue of his best work readers are given the very heart of Zen teaching. Zen Buddhism, which sold more than 125,000 as an Anchor paperback after its publication in 1956, includes a basic historical background as well as a thorough overview of the techniques for Zen practice. Concepts and terminology such as satori, zazen, and koans, as well as the various elements of this philosophy are all given clear explanations. But while Suzuki takes nothing for granted in the reader's understanding of the fundamentals, he does not give a merely rudimentary overview. Each of the essays included here, particularly those on the unconscious mind and the relation of Zen to Western philosophy, go far beyond other sources for their penetrating insights and timeless wisdom. What is most important about D.T. Suzuki's work, however--and what comes across so powerfully in these selections--is his unparalleled ability to communicate the experiential aspect of Zen. The intensity here with which Zen philosophy comes to life is without parallel in the canon of Buddhist literature. Suzuki stands apart from all teachers before or since because of his exceptional ability to eloquently capture in words the seemingly inexpressible essence of Zen. Printed Pages: 400. 037579
