Description

Preface

In the Mantra and Brahmana portions of the Veda, are found abudant political data. While the terms, Sabha and Samiti denote the popular Vedic Assemblies, others such as Gana, Sajata and Janarajya reflect the democratic notions of Vedic India.

Although several writers like JAYASWAL, MUKERJI, GHOSAL-only to mention a few- have admitted that the Vedas contain a rich mine of political information, yet no single work is entirely dedicated to a critical study and examination of the Ancient Indian Polity embodied in Vedic texts.

An attempt is made in this book- Vedakalinajanatantrasthanani-to synchronise the Vedic conception of statecraft, associated with the three divisions of the Vedic society: Brahma, Ksatra and Visa. It is my firm conviction that the later Indian Ministerial Councial can be traced to the Vedic concept of Mahajanasabha.

It remains for me to thank the Government of India for the financial assistance given to me in carrying out my studies. Padmabhusana, Dr. V. RAGHAVAN deserves my thanks for his useful suggestions. I iwe a deep debt of gratitude to Dr. B.R. Sharma, the Director of Kendriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, and the Vidyapeetha Society, Tirupati for kindly undertaking the publication of my work. Lastly I thank the staff of M. L. J. Press, Madras, who have seen this work through press with accuracy and skill.

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!

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.
