Architecture of Manasara (Translated from Original Sanskrit Text), 2 Vols
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8183151337 / 9788183151337; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Architecture of Manasara is an English version of a Sanskrit text of that name edited, with critical notes, for the first time by the writer. Except one, all other manuscripts are fragmentary and none contains any commentary, drawings, diagrams or sketches. The buildings of the time, religious, military, or residential, do not appear to exist in their entirety for a ready reference. Owing to the defective nature of the text, which has been shown elsewhere, one can hardly be perfectly sure of the interpretation. An elaborate effort, involving great expenditure of time, money, and convenience, was made to get into contact with the so-called traditional builders in the south, in the Orissan countries, in the Indian States of Rajputana, Central India, Gujarat, Bombay, in the Frontier Provinces and in the Hill States, in company with trained and experienced engineers, architects, and interpreters, in the vain hope of getting some light from salats. These salats are stated to build in accordance with an ancient tradition which, they claim, to have inherited orally in some cases, but mostly from some fragmentary manuscripts that they have frequently failed to interpret. None knows more clearly than myself what imperfections are to be found in this first attempt at translating such an imperfect text on such highly technical subjects. I owe it, therefore, to the reader to indicate the general method I have closely followed. In the translation of the Text I have endeavored to adhere as closely as possible to the language of the original. It has consistently been my aim to reproduce the bare meaning of the Manasara, and to avoid, as far as can be done, taking liberties with the language in order to bring out meaning other than what the most obvious and ordinary natural interpretation would suggest. 104025

Sacred Complex of Budhi Santani: Anthropological Approach to Study Hindu Civilization
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8180690490 / 9788180690495; Hardcover; New; New; 
Several scholars in India and abroad have used the sacred complex model of Prof. L.P. Vidyarthi to study the nature and process of compromise and cooperation among various faiths, sects and traditions of Hindu civilization as reflected in different Hindu places of pilgrimage. This book has revealed the way the sacred complex model can be applicable to a single dominant shrine, as a nexus of ritual activities, economic cooperation and social ties, in understanding the characteristics of Hindu civilization. The author has used sacred complex as a conflux of seven elements comprising sacred geography, sacred performances, sacred specialists, sacred sacrifices, sacred sacrifices, sacred symbols and sacred beliefs, and has specifically attempted to explore the linkage of local pattern of Hindu social organization with the organization of sacred performances. The facts delineated in the book will be helpful to the researchers and educationists working on Hindu civilization. Printed Pages: 450. 112125
