This work is based on the writings of Dhunapala, an outstanding man of letters, who enjoyed the patronage of the Paramara rulers of Malwa,-Munja and Bhoja (l0th-lltli centuries A.P.). The works of Dhunapala, held up to an exhaustive critical examination for the first time in the present work, offer a valuable insight into the political, social, economic and religious conditions obtaining in the early medieval period of Indian history. Ohanapala's Tilaka manjari (which has provided the warp and woof of" tlie work) Is one of the most prized source books for constructing the cultural history of the times. In this work the Paramara dynasty has been brought under critical focus with a view to tracing the currents and cross-currents in political, social and religious Mrala of early medieval India. The work has been commended by scholars as an ideal dissertation for the cultural study of the works of a single author. Researchers in Indian history, Sanskrit, Jainism and indological studies should find it rewarding to go through it. Printed Pages: 176.
