2 Urmila Agarwal
North Indian Temple Sculpture
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8121504589 / 9788121504584; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Sculptural study provides a clear window to the socio-economic and religious study of the past. North India is full of numerous temples of early medieval period (9th to 13th centuries AD). Contemporary temples in the south have already been covered by several authors but no such exhaustive study of the North Indian temples has been done. An attempt has been made in the present work, to study the sculptural wealth of the North Indian temples and to glean from it such light as they throw on the iconographic and cultural life of the people. The ingenuity of the sculptors in carving icons of rare beauty and arrangement of ayudhas of geometrical designs and human figures in the small friezes complete to the minutest details is commendable and to be wondered at. More so when we think of the ancient instruments and simple methods of working at their disposal. The Pancadevas of Hindu mythology, Vaisnavas, Saiva and Sakta images: Surya and Ganesa, Kartikeya, Dikpalas, Navagrahas and Ganas, Yaksas and Surasundaris all have been studied in great details. The minor gods and goddesses like Nagadevas and Pisacas, Sitala and Manasa also find place in the study. Likewise Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism are dealt in great detail including Jain ascetics like Bahubali and Adisvaraswami and famous Buddhist monk Nagarjuna. Scenes relating to schooling of children, relations between husband and wife, economic life, war and political life, customs, habits and pastimes have also been studied. Printed Pages: 224 with 145 line drawings and 96 b/w illustrations. 025701

Practical Vedanta Movement: Prasthanatraya widened to "Panch-Shastra"
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Private Limited/Research India Press; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8178224771 / 9788178224770; Softcover; New; 
While performing the last rites of his mother (in the face of opposition from other Vedantins), Shankaracharya must have realized that some of the Vedantic messages were not ěpracticalî. In 1823, Rammohun Roy was deeply hurt to see Vedantic scholars promoting ěescapismî. In 1896, Swami Vivekananda gave talks on his vision of Practical Vedanta, to fulfil which he established, in 1897, Ramakrishna Mission as a non-political organization. The scope of Practical Vedanta was widened in the 20th century, by the contributions of TilakAurobindo-Tagore-Gandhi. The whole world admired this great Vedantic movement. In the beginning of the 21st century, Western scholars and activists (drawing inspiration from Vedanta and other philosophies) have taken the lead in further updating of Vedanta, by attaching high priority to the welfare of non-human beings. This pioneering book studies, not only these five contributions, but also three later ones, the most recent being the campaign for ěLiving Vedantaî (presented by Will Tuttle in his own words). Finally, specific suggestions are put forward to answer the question: What does Practical Vedanta mean today? 110015

The Social Message of Mahayana Buddhism (Bodhicaryavatara 4.40 Why Shall I not Persevere, Whole-Heartedly, in Working for the Good of the World, Undeterred by Difficulties?)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178223848 / 9788178223841; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The conceptual origin of this book is linked with the study and research that the authors did in USA from 1953 onward in association with Alan Watts who laid open vast field of research opportunities connected with Buddhism.The research on 'Lokasamgraha' (Good of the world) - which has similarities with Sarvodaya - picked up steam in 1987. Their first book on Lokasamgraha was published in 1993, under the title The Social Role of the Gita: How and Why. The main finding of that book, viz. that the social message of 'Bhagavad-Gita', was 'Lokasamgraha', which received strong support from Gandhian scholars as well as university professors. This prompted them to extend the coverage of research to books which have been influenced by Bhagavad-Gita.While looking for other texts that could be included in the research program, the authors came across Dr. Radhakrishnan's remark (made in 1948) that the most important Mahayana text (The Lotus Sutra) is indebted to Bhagavad-Gita. In fact, quite independently of this remark, their research inevitably meant taking a close look at the important phenomenon of 'Engaged Buddhism'. In this process, they discovered that, while many of the engaged Buddhists had been inspired by the Lotus Sutra, some of them had been inspired by Shantideva's Bodhicaryavatara. The outcome of the consequent enlargement of the scope of the research is presented in this book.Printed Pages: 190. 102409
