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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
