3 A.K. Warder
Indian Buddhism
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120808185 / 9788120808188; Third Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book describes the Buddhism of India on the basis of the comparison of all the available original sources in various languages. It falls into three approximately equal parts. The first is a reconstruction of the original Buddhism presupposed by the traditions of the different schools known to us. It uses primarily the established methods of textual criticism, drawing out of the oldest extant texts of the different schools their common kernel. This kernel of doctrine is presumably common Buddhism of the period before the great schisms of the fourth and third centuries BC. It may be substantially the Buddhism of the Buddha himself, though this cannot be proved: at any rate it is a Buddhism presupposed by the schools as existing about a hundred years after the Parinirvana of the Buddha, and there is no evidence to suggest that it was formulated by anyone other than the Buddha and his immediate followers. The second part traces the development of the 'Eighteen Schools' of early Buddhism, showing how they elaborated their doctrines out of the common kernel. Here we can see to what extent the Sthaviravada, or 'Theravada' of the Pali tradition, among others, added to or modified the original doctrine. The third part describes the Mahayana movement and the Mantrayana, the way of the bodhisattva and the way of ritual. The relationship of the Mahayana to the early schools is traced in detail, with its probable affiliation to one of them, the Purva Saila, as suggested by the consensus of the evidence. Particular attention is paid in this book to the social teaching of Buddhism, the part which relates to the 'world' rather than to nirvana and which has been generally neglected in modern writings Buddhism.Printed Pages: 619. 102370

Indian Kavya Literature (Volume 1: Literary Criticism)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8120804465 / 9788120804463; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Kavya Literature is planned in eight volumes as a comprehensive study of literature (kavya) in the literary criticism of that same tradition. Surprising as it may seem, Indian literature has not till now been presented from this obvious, natural and necessary point of view in any modern language, except in a limited and primarily bibliographical manner by Krishnamachariar in his history of Classical Sanskrit Literature (1937). Instead, Indian literature has been misrepresented and misjudged from a narrowly European, and therefore quite alien and unhelpful, standpoint in the modern works on it widely accepted as 'standard'. It is exceedingly odd that even several modern Indian writers have performed the feat of adopting this alienated and distant view, diminishing Indian culture in the midst of the struggle for Indian freedom from colonialism. The present work is intended to restore Indian literature to independence and to India, as a step towards that freedom from spiritual colonialism which India has yet to attain. But the method of presentation here involves no political discussions and is very simple and straightforward: the aim is the enjoyment of the literature as it was meant to be enjoyed. The first volume prepares the way for the enjoyment of Indian literature by presenting Indian literary criticism, thus clarifying the techniques and aims of Indian writers. This criticism includes the various aesthetic theories as to the nature of the enjoyment of literature by readers and audiences, the techniques of dramaturgy and poetics whereby this enjoyment is created, the nature of the literary genres (drama, epic, the novel, etc.) and a sketch of the milieu of the writers and critics.Printed Pages: 295. 102592

Indian Kavya Literature (Volume 8: The Performance of Kavya in the + 14)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8120834488 / 9788120834484; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Where kavya flourished, performance in the streets and in theatres also flourished. So theatre in Andhra and everywhere to the south, also in Orissa, Mithila and Nepala, flourished in the +14. In Andhra Rudra's Yayaticarita is the earliest extant play on that famousking. The Telugu translation of the Premabhirama gives us a substantial street play vithi describing scenes in the Kakatiya capital. Narasimha's Kadambari play has an improved ending. Agastya composed two epics from the Mahabharata and a biography from the Harivamsa. In Rajasthan Rayanasehara's novel has his hero given troupes of actors to perform for him whilst he is travelling. In Gurjara Jinaprabha's Kalpapradipa (completed in Yoginipattana = 'Dhilli') is a miserable history of sacrilege and Islamic terror. In Sarvananda's Jagaducarita the merchant foresaw a famine and stored enough grain to feed all western India plus Kasi. Princess Ganga composed the Sanskrit epic Madhuravijaya on her husband's slaying of the Turkish suratrana in Madurai, a decisive event in Vijayanagara (and Indian) history. Ahobala's campu is a comic satire matallika on a festival there. Venkatanatha's allegorical play is of interest only for some incidental details. In Kerala we have an anonymous bhana set in Mahodaya and Laksmidasa's long message poem Sukasandesa, which is just a dream he had about his wife Rangalaksmi (Apphulla). Purnasarasvati composed a strict sataka Hamsasandesa and an ecological play on a victory of birds over storms of the rainy season. Autumn then regulated the round of seasons. The actor Damodara composed a Sanskrit epic and Malayalam manipravala campu, both on the actress Unniyati. From Tirabhukti (Mithila) we have comedies by Jyotirisvara and adunandana. From Nepala there are several Sanskrit plays. In Balinese the Sutasoma is an enormous vajrayana work.Printed Pages: 433. 102594

Indian Kavya Literature, Volume 7: The Wheel of Time (in 2 Parts)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8120820282 / 9788120820289; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume on the twelfth and thirteenth centuries starts with Vidyakara`s retrospect over anonymous poets (named ones having mostly found their places in earlier volumes). After some smaller anthologies a few novels and Mankhaka`s mythological epic we come to a historical epic. History is the most substantial source of matter for literature in the volume. That might seem to contrast with Vol. Vi, but as literature its aim is always are, not facts which narrows the gap.Printed Pages: 1135. 102593

10 Amar Singh with a Foreword By Prof. A.K. Warder
The Heart of Buddhist Philosophy-Dinnaga and Dharmakirti
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8121501210 / 9788121501217; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This is an interesting and exciting book in showing how modern scholarship misunderstood three great Sautrantika critical philosophers. If the evidence adduced in this book is correct, then the history of Buddhist philosophy, fifth century onward, has to be rewritten. Also new studies and translationsare implied of all the works of Dinnaga and Dharmakirti. The author sheds a new light, taking into consideration the views of ancient and modern scholars, on many complex and polemic issues of the Buddhist philosophy. The research is based on the discovery of the lost manuscripts of Dharmakirti by Rahula Sankrtyayana and it can be considered to be a corrective to Stcherbatsky's Buddhist Logic which is the heart of Buddhist philosophy. Stcherbatsky recognised this treasure of critical philosophy as "the most excellent achievement of Indian mind" which has further been evaluated in this book. Printed Pages: 184. 021942
