3 Dr Shashibala; Foreword By Lokesh Chandra
Buddhist Art: In Praise of the Divine
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8174362177 / 9788174362179; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Religion has been the impetus behind the greatest art traditions of the world. Buddhism is no different. The life of the Buddha, with its spectacular event of Enlightenment, forms the cornerstone of the vast edifice of Buddhist art; it informs a tradition that is more than a thousand and five hundred years old. To encompass this whole living tradition is a challenging task- one that Buddhist Art: In Praise of the Divine does with academic finesse and assurance. Exploring the expression of art in the three different dimensions of architecture, sculpture, and painting, the book journeys through time, themes, and the grand structures of Buddhism to portray a unique world – a world at once simple and esoteric, grand and humble, somber and cheerful. In doing so, Buddhist Art becomes nothing less than a pictorial chronicle of an awe-inspiring artistic tradition. Printed Pages: 128 with numerous colour illustrations. 029067

4 Dr Shashibala
Divine Art
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174363211 / 9788174363213; Hardcover; New; 
Religions of the world have inspired divine art forms, embracing the deepest insights and highest aspirations of mankind. This book charts the origin and evolution of these divine art forms and aims to understand the deeper, spiritual psychology of human beings inspired by divinity. Beginning with the worship of nature, divine art inspired forms as diverse as writing, music, dance, drama, painting, sculpture and architecture. Some early manifestations of divine art included the illustration of religious lore, epics and ballads on papyrus, palm fronds and parchment. Divine art also inspired dance forms such as the tsam and the noh. Architecture too reached its highest forms of magnificence as man tried to invoke and appease the gods. In this age of consumerism and materialism, divine art not only instils in us feelings of love and compassion but also helps us transcend our suffering. This book comes as a source of hope and elucidation that divinity holds us together. Printed Pages: 144. 108602

5 Shashibala (Ed.)
Kumarajiva: Philosopher and Seer
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789380935614; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Kumarajiva, (Jiumóluóshi in Chinese), a philosopher and seer, had a long cherished mission: propagation of the true spirit of Buddhism. He broke political, geographical, cultural and linguistic barriers; travelled through barren lands and rivers, mountains and forbidding terrains to bequeath to us a casket of sacred sutras as the most authoritative presentations by translating them from Sanskrit into Chinese. He created pure, boundless and unthinkable versions of the sutras as an obeisance to the sacred voice so that one could bathe in the pure pond of the Dharma. “Kumarajiva: Philosopher and Seer” is a compendium of recent researches on the brilliance that ushers through his legacy, enshrined in thousands of monasteries in China, Korea and Japan, preserving the heritage - his translations of the sacred Sanskrit texts copied over the last sixteen centuries. The life of Kumarajiva was unique in every aspect. His works inspired members of Imperial houses, Emperors, writers and artists, pilgrims and philosophers. His angelic presence can still be felt in the monastic establishments, in the sound of recitation of sutras and in the lives of the people that have been inspired over the centuries by his translations. The researches done by scholars from world academia are included in the present volume on his date of birth, the towns and villages where he spent his life from childhood to nirvana, historically important events of his life, his contemporaries, his contribution to the cultural sphere of East Asia especially defining a new road for Mahayana Buddhism, philosophical theories and vision, comparative studies of his translations and echoes of his translations in Chinese literature.Printed Pages: 361. 100548
