Cultural Interface of India with Asia Religion, Art and Architecture
Cultural Interface of India with Asia Religion, Art and Architecture
Description
Foreword

The idea of organizing an International Seminar on the shared religious and artistic heritage of Asia, with particular thrust on the Indian contribution to Asian culture, was first conceived and discussed by me with the erstwhile Director General, Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Mr. Himachal Som. He at once evinced a keen interest in the project, but the proposal saw its fruition only during the tenure of his successor, Mr. Suryakanthi Tripathi. When the matter was pursued with her, her response was both enthusiastic and co-operative. Once the modalities were worked out, the two institutions entered into an agreement for collaboration and began to give shape to this volume.

In order to make the Seminar meaningful and truly representative of international scholarship in the field, the Organizing Committee for the Seminar along with the necessary institutional support structure, worked tirelessly. The Seminar was truly successful in terms of international representation, quality of scholarship, organization, academic deliberation, as well as meaningful interactions at an informal level and the reaffirmation of bonds between the various institutions and countries that the participating scholars represented.

In her, inaugural address, Dr. Najma Heptullah, Deputy Chairperson of the Rajya Sabha and President, Indian Council for cultural Relations, reiterated the need to understand the close ties that are shared by the people of Asia, and the significant role that scholars in the field can play in increasing this awareness. In the persona of Professor Lokesh Chandra, who delivered a most erudite and profound keynote address, we found a true representation of the spirit of oneness that unity that was India's message to Asia in the form of Buddhism and Hinduism.

Scholars from India, Nepal, Tibet, Sri Lanka, Iran, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Mongolia, Korea, Japan, China, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, United Kingdom and Australia presented their paper and shared camaraderie of belief, ideals and scholarship. This truly heartening response needed to be documented for the future and it was decided that we should publish the proceedings of the Seminar in the form of a book. I am glad that the work is now complete, and I feel confident that It will be a valuable asset to scholars and students in the field.

From the Jacket

The reality of the Indian presence in Asian cultures is undeniable. Recent scholarship in the field of Asian cultural studies has laid much stress on the essential oneness of the substratum that defines what may be termed as an Asian identity. Buddhism ad Hinduism, having originated in India, traveled beyond the frontiers of the land of their origin, and in many ways, moulded the beliefs and faith of the people of Asia. Trade, political ambitions, and religious pursuits led to a dissemination of Indian 'ideas' and 'forms' across Asia. In each area of Indian influence, the assimilation of Indian traditions with indigenous practices led to the development of a new idiom of expression with a distinctive localized identity.

This collection of scholarly papers focuses on the centrality of the Indian contribution to Asian cultures and brings under one rubric, the views of exports from India, Nepal, Tibet, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Mongolia, China, Korea, Japan, Belgium, Bulgaria, and the United Kingdom. Such an international representation, the consequence of a Seminar held in the National Museum Institute in collaboration with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, New Delhi, is unique not only in providing the Indian point of view but also in revealing Eurasian Perspectives on the subject of India's pivotal role in defining the Asian cultural matrix.
