1 Richard Gombrich and Cristina Scherrer (eds); Petteri Koskikallio and Asko Parpola (General Editors)
Buddhist Studies: Papers of the 12th World Sanskrit Conference Held in Helsinki, Finland, 13-18 July, 2003: Vol. 8
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120832485 / 9788120832480; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The impressive growth of Buddhist Studies in recent years is the result of several factors. Important collections of manuscripts have been found, and monuments unearthed, in nearly all parts of Asia where Buddhism existed; political and social events bringing East and West together have increased interest in both scholarly research and Buddhist religious practices. The spread of Buddhism outside its birthplace, Madhyadesa, first in India and soon throughout Asia, prompted its followers constantly to invent new discursive strategies and to adjust the rules to local customs and administrations. The essays presented here illustrate how why Buddhist literature adapted to a new and specific context, particularly in North-west India. They also discuss hermeneutical and exegetical practices of Indian Buddhism, the complex interrelation between the Brahmanical and the Buddhist milieu, as well as the role of the social and political context in determining the rules of the monastic code (vinaya).

5 Colette Caillat and Nalini Balbir (eds); Petteri Koskikallio and Asko Parpola (General Editors)
Jaina Studies: Papers of the 12th World Sanskrit Conference Held in Helsinki, Finland, 13-18 July, 2003: Vol. 9
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120832477 / 9788120832473; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Interest for Jain studies has increased considerably in the last decades. Scholars will be thankful to the organizers of the 12th World Sanskrit Conference who, for the first time in such a conference, planned a special panel on this field. The ten papers collected in this volume show the importance, abundance and variety of topics that can be considered. Philological analysis still proves useful, whether it concentrates on one particular work or on clusters of texts. A study of the "strategy of narrative" and predication needs a historical approach, kavya literature lends itself to renewed and indepth interpretations. Finally the reader will observe the constant renewal of Jainism, as some new "literary genre" or a new sect are seen to have gained momentum in modern times. Printed Pages: 304. 029431
