The Cultural Glory of Ancient India
The Cultural Glory of Ancient India
Description

From the Jacket

India has a millennia long glorious past. In mankind's history, it is unmistakably a rich chapter: splendid in expression and awe- inspiring in immensity. Recognized world-wide for the sublimity of its thought that transcends cosmic categories, the cultural glory of ancient India is well-manifest in its long intellectual traditions of Darsana, Dharma-sastras, Ayurveda, niti, Itihasa-Purana, Vyakarana and Kavyasastra. And these apart, it is seen in the heights it achieved in the realms of sculptural art, architecture, drama, poetry, music and even erotics.

Notwithstanding its vastly complex expressions, the book develops a sharply-chiselled cultural profile of ancient India- with spotlight on its creative genius, its intellectual traditions, and its landmark achievements. In projecting these distinguishing features of a great heritage, the Author an Indologist of international renown, has drawn on a bewildering mass of literary evidence: ranging from Vedic writings to Vastuvidya texts, from Arthasastra treatises to Alamkara Sastra works.

With wide-ranging bibliographic references and a comprehensive glossary of Sanskrit terms running over a hundred pages, the book will interest specialists and lay-readers alike.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
