4 Shanti Lal Nagar
Buddha in Gandhara Art and other Buddhist Sites
Buddhist World Press/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8190821210 / 9788190821216; Hardcover; New; New; 
The genesis of the Buddhist art in India, is traceable in the stone art of Bharhut dating back to the second century B.C. followed by the art of the Buddhist stupa at Sanchi, the art of Mathura and Amaravati dating back to a century or two later. Numerous stone artefacts relating to the life of the Buddha were discovered from these sites. The early tradition of the Buddhist art and Bharhut and Sanchi does not project Buddha in human form. He is projected at these sites in symbolic form of empty throne, a chariot with a rider, a Bodhi tree or a horse without a rider. This was ostensibly done by the followers of the Buddha, out of the great reverence and respect, they had for the master. The Buddha, however, started appearing in human form in Gandhara Art, which starts from the 2nd-3rd c. A.D. onwards. The projection of Buddha here at Gandhara in human form is so wider spread, as if it had been started with a vengeance. In early Buddhist sites of Bharhut, Sanchi, Mathura, Amravati and Nagarjunakonda, the Buddhist art was executed in the hard stone. But in Gandhara the religious art was not restricted to the stone sculptures alone but its excellence was projected in terracotta and stucco at Taxila, the Cave at Bamiyan, in Afghanistan and other sites, where two standing images of the Buddha were found, one of which is the tallest in the world with a height of 177 feet. The life scenes of Buddha right from the dream of the queen Maya to his parinirvana started appearing in the Buddhist art from Bharhut onwards, and Gandhara started doing so by about the 2nd - 3rd c.A.D. In the present work an attempt has been made to portray as many life scenes of Buddha as possible from Gandhara and while doing so the evidence of some other ancient Buddhist sites, like Bharhut, Sanchi, Amaravati, Nagarjunakonda, Mathura, etc. has also been included with the twin purpose of comparative study and to supply the missing link.

Deities in Terracotta Art: From Earliest Times to Late Medieval Period (Indian Gods and Goddesses), Vol. V
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8176466379 / 9788176466370; Hardcover; New; New; 
Terracotta Art has attracted the mankind from the time immemorial. Be it the household or child`s play cart it dominated the human society impressively. A school of thought treated it to be the poor-man`s art but it was patronised in fact by the higher strata of society as well, While with the poor it was like the lifeline who used it for cooking and other domestic purposes besides making the toys for their children and more often than not as the deities for adoration, the most popular among them being the Mother Goddess. Such figurines have been found in abundance in the pre-historic sites of Harappa and Mohenjodaro and they continued during the historical period as well. Gradually the number of deities in Terracotta Art went on increasing and the sites like Bhumra, Ahichchhatra, Rajghat, Mathura etc. of the historical period produced a large number of deities. Interestingly the types of such deities in the earlier period was restricted to only a few deities like Siva. Mother Goddess, the sun or some composite forms but reaching the historical period their number was multiplied. Even those figures of the historical period which included the goddesses like MahisasuramardinI, Sarasvatl, Durga and others started attracting the provisions of the Silp-Sastras in making of the terracotta figurines. Though there had been a number of books on Terracotta Art in India but a work exclusively dealing with the Indian deities represented in Terracotta Art are not quite common. In the present book an effort has been made to project the deities so commonly found from the earliest times in the Indian Terracotta Art, and it is hoped that the readers will find it interesting.

8 Shanti Lal Nagar and Tripta Nagar
Giradhara Ramayana: Composed in Gujarati by Giridhara, the great son of the soil in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries AD translated into English (Ramayana in Regional Languages Series
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510309 / 9788121510301; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
The Ramayana or the story of Rama, has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. Before composition of the work of poetic excellence to be the pioneer of the same, the story was available in fragments in different parts of the country. Though the sage Valmiki was inspired by the sage Narada for composing the Ramayana but Valmiki had to collect several fragments of the story from various regions of the country. Once the story was composed in poetic form, there was a great boost in the popularity of the theme and soon there arose the urge with the people to listen or to recite the Ramayanas in the languages they spoke. As a result of this, several Ramayana in the regional languages were brought out from time to time in the past particularly in the medieval period. The Giridhara Ramayana in Gujarati comes under such types of works, which was composed by Giridhara, a great son of soil, in Gujarati language. The most astonishing aspect of this work has been that it provides occasionally the study of the selected events as discussed in other works, which highlights its unique nature. The English version of the text now produced, will securely interest the readers in country and abroad. Printed Pages: 517. 000102

Hanuman: In Art, Culture, Thought and Literature
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 9788170760753; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ever since the dawn of civilization in the country, several deities emerged on the Indian religious scene, while some of them vanished into oblivion as suddenly as they had mushroomed, sone of them left and indelible impression in the minds of the people and are adored in one form or the other even during the modern times. Hanuman happens to be one such deity. Though scholars have tried to trace the presence of Hanuman in the Vedic literature in the form of Vrsakapi, the Braham Purana, how-ever, recognises Vrsakapi to be none else than Hanuman himself. Hanuman, as such however, was introducted by Valmiki for the first time in the Ramayana where initially he had an insignificant role as a minister of Sugriva. His personality indeed got a great boost soon after his coming in contact with Rama and Lakshmana, the Ayodhya princes. In fact most of the episodes in the Kiskindha, Sundara and Yuddha Kandas of the Ramayana hover round Hanuman. There, he is presented as an excellent warrior, a devoted servant, a diplomat par excellence, most intelligent person and the one, who possessing all the virtues, could render selfless service to one and all. He never had any aspirations of his own and his entire performance in the epic was dedicated for the service of others. He could perform such heroic deeds, which none else even Rama and Laksmana could do.Printed Pages: 604. 102065

Indian Monoliths
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 9788170760439; Hardcover; New; New; 
One of the glorious aspects of the Ancient Indian art and Architecture had been the creation of Monoliths which were hewn out of solid rocks. Though the presence of these monoliths could be traced in the Vedic and later Vedic texts, but no specimens beyond the Mauryan period could be traced. The Indra Sabha of Chandragupta Maurya at Kumrahar near Patna was credited with having eighty-two monolithic pillars with the glazed polish. However, with Asoka's ascending to the throne of Magadha, the art of chiselling in India received a great boost. During his times a number of monolithic pillars with capitals including those at Sanchi and Sarnath were created. The pillars of the Mauryan period were circular in their design but during the subsequent period the stress on circular monoliths was almost abandoned. In their place, the square, hexagonal, or octagonal monolithic pillars were patronised. In centuries that followed the artist besides continuing the activity of monolithic pillars, also started the chiselling of the monolithic cave stupas, which served the cause of Buddhism, followed by the creation of monolithic temples, like those at Ellora, Mahabalipuram and Masrur (Kangra). These Monoliths have their own importance in the Indian Art and Architecture. The present work deals with the subject in detail, highlighting the salient features of the Indian monoliths.Printed Pages: 204. 102503

Kamba Ramayana (English Translation of Tamil Ramayana of Sage Kamban), 2 Vols
Parimal Publications; Delhi, India; 2008; 8171103162 / 9788171103164; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The story of Rama has been dominating the Indian religious scene from the time immemorial. The complete story of the Ramayana was hardly popular with the masses in complete form till it was composed by the sage Valmiki in a book form. The Ramayana which is known as the Adi-kavya or the first ornate poem according to the indigenous estimation is ascribed to the sage Valmiki, the Adikavi or the first author of the ornate poetry. The Ramayana deserves to be called as the Adikavya because of the characteristics of the ornate poetry, such as the description of nature and the presence of the figures of speech, both of words and the sense are quite auspicious. A number of Ramayanas were composed in different parts of the country. The regional Ramayanas were composed not only in the north but also in the south, in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada languages. Of these regional works, the Kamba Ramayana which was composed by Maharshi Kamban, possibly was the earliest. The Kamba Ramayana comprises of six kandas instead of seven of the Valmiki Ramayana.Printed Pages: 1001. 100608
