1 Sadashiv Ambadas Dange
Gleaning From Vedic to Puranic Age
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 9788173052379; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"The book in its first part contains twenty-three papers of (late) Dr. Sadashiv Ambadas Dange. Excepting three, the papers have already been published in reputed research journals. "The book deals with varied topics such as several Vedic beliefs; Sanskrit poetician’s imagery gliding into the realm of semiotics; the ‘riddle’—like incidents in the two great epics; Purana to be regarded as a ‘shastra’; interesting motifs in mythology and folklore; Mimamsa-rules applied in life and some significant problems in the ‘spoken’ aspect of the Sanskrit language. "The book in its second part gives a short biographical sketch of (late) Dr. S.A. Dange and a bibliography of his writings, the latter, on the earnest insistence of researchers and scholars."

2 Sadashiv Ambadas Dange
Images From Vedic Hymns and Rituals
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8173051909 / 9788173051906; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"The book deals with variety of concepts, images and beliefs in the Vedic tradition, revealed through Vedic hymns and rituals. Several images and symbols, at times, are influenced by folk-beliefs at that period, some of which are current even to-day. "The complex image of 'Aksara' not only having a rain-symbolism but also getting a dimension of proto-philosophy, that of the Son-husband current even today, that of the "crying worlds" not restricted only to the Vedic literature, the images centering round Soma as a ritual-drink, the 'eye' of Prajapati, the problematic "Sasarpari", divinity of the banners, Vana though a war-trumpet changing into ritual musical instrument, the unique birth of Vasistha and Agastya from a jar, the words 'Dvibarhas' and 'siprin' indicative of power and status, the riddle of the black antelope, dance of Indra and Chaya giving a glimpse of ancient war-dance - these and many more, delvings in the Vedic hymns and rituals display a treasure of myriad images."

Myths From the Mahabharata (Volume 2: Study in Patterns and Symbols)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8173052107 / 9788173052101; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present Book forms part of the bigger plan of studying the Mahabharata, from a different point of view, the Vol. I being Myths from the Mahabharata - quest for immortality. The various mythical accounts, concerning awkward looking tests and Supranormal Birth, collected and faithfully preserved by the tradition of the suta-s with a belief of iti-ha-asa ("This happened so' or "This was so'), are studied in this volume, taking into account the Mythological patterns and symbols they present. The chapter on "Tests" deals with the tests taken of the disciples breathing the 'gurukula'-atmosphere as also the tests taken of the royal personages by the whimsical sages, the chapter not leaving off the point of sexual hospitality asked by the guest as a test of the householder. The pattern of myths woven round the motif of "Supranormal Birth" is seen unfolding many an interesting symbol concerning birth-phenomenon, which had remained unearthed up to this time.

Myths From the Mahabharata (Volume 3: Probe in Early Dim History and Folklore)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8173052166 / 9788173052163; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book forms the third and final part of the plan of studying the Mahabharata, from a different point of view, Vol. 1 being-Myths from the Mahabharata-Quest for Immortality, Vol. 2 being- Myths from the Mahabharata-Study in Patterns and Symbols. In this volume are unearthed through myths some iti-ha-asa records, which shed light on the facts and incidents of the hoary past, as yet shrouded in mystery. The iti-ha-asa records through myths, such as those gathered round the sage Agastya and those of the advent of the river Ganga, can be taken as breathing the 'true history' from the modern day point of view. Some iti-ha-asa records in the Mahabharata as seen through the tales of "Metamorphosis" and the "Miscellaneous Tales" lead us to the study of 'patterns' and are a help to explain many a myth. The Appendices serve as searchlight on some myths and folktales. Printed Pages: 304. 100238

5 Sadashiv Ambadas Dange
Towards Understanding Hindu Myths
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8173050805 / 9788173050800; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Book takes a survey of important opinions and schools regarding the meaning of myths, such as the nature-myth school, the ritual-myth school which believed that all myths and rituals are intimately connected to each other and that they are counterparts of each other, the functional school and the structural approach to the understanding of myths. It also takes note of the historical and the typological method. It examines all these methods and evaluates the role of metaphor and symbol in the formation, and hence understanding, of myths. Dwelling on some of the tribal and classical myths studied by such scholars as Kramer, Malinowski, Claude Levi-Strauss, Kirk and others, it tries to throw fresh light on the meaning of these myths by further comparison. Non-Hindu myths are put to comparison with those from The Hindu context. This forms part I of the book. In part II it presents a study of some Hindu myths and legends, explaining the various symbols, motifs and patterns therein and tries to arrive at the meaning of these myths and legends. Thus, the 'bones of the sage Dadhici' get related to the ribs of the sacrificial horse. The avatara of Narsimha (Visnu Man-lion) gets related to the actual practice of showing lion-heads on thrones and pillars from ancient middle east to India, and Burma. The myth of Trisanku's bodily ascent to heaven has its source in a ritual at the Vajapeya sacrifice. The motif of the 'eighth', in relation to Krsna, has its source in early Vedic beliefs. Fresh light has been thrown on the myth of Renuka and Yellamma. The myth and ritual of Mahisasura-mardini gets a fresh scrutiny with new evidence from the Veda and south Indian folk-tales.

7 Sadashiv Ambadas Dange
Vedic Sacrifices: Early Nature, 2 Vols.
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 817305195X / 9788173051951; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book is meant to mark the state of ritual as found in the Samhita and Brahmana texts. This is much before the Srautasutras, which in later times codified every matter of the then developed elaborate ritual. The glimpses from the Rgveda do not correspond to the details of the ritual found in these later texts. With the Brahmanas, the so called Srauta type of Vedic ritual was almost fixed, through the Srautasutras at some places show changes - omissions or additions. Even at the Samhits-Brahmana period, the institution of Vedic sacrifices evolved to such a level as to make a labyrinth of rules, options and explanatory myths. Without the knowledge of ritual of this stage, the picture of the ritual got from the Srautasutras would remain incomplete. The present book is meant for both scholars and those elite readers, who are interested in knowing the main sacrifices without getting lost in the net of rites. Printed Pages: 584. 100240
