This volume is an attempt to present a comprehensive work on Buddhist iconography of India, and is mainly based on Sanskrit text prepared from seven recensions of the Sadhanamala alias Sadhanasamuccaya. The text has been illustrated by pictures representing images in several luseums in India and elsewhere in the collection of numerous Nepalese monasteries. In the present work endeavour has been made to identify the images of I Buddhist deities by means of Dhyanas I given in the Sadhanamala. Wherever images could not be procured, the Sadhana bas been illustrated with the help of sketches or drawings prepared by Nepalese chitrakaras of Buddhist origin from the ancient albums of their forefathers. Where no drawing could be obtained only the original text has en quoted with a translation. The importance of Indian Buddhist Iconography lies not only in its being one the earliest authentic account but as one-of the most outstanding ark on the subject not withstanding le change in perception due to new material and research. The work which long been out-of-print is being re-issued for the use of art-historians, archaeologists, conservators and also pr the lay readers. Printed Pages: 238 with 69 halftone illustrations.
