Description
About the Author:

Born in an orthodox Brahmana family of Bengal and educated traditionally in Varanasi, Dr. S.N. Ghoshal Sastri started his carrier as a teacher of a Sanskrit Institution and an editor of the Chaukhambha Sanskrit Series, Varanasi.

During the time, he had the privilege to sit under the feet of some celebrated scholars of the time; like Mm. Pramthantha Tarkabhusana, Mm. Balakrsna Misra and Mm. Gopinath Kaviraj.
He took active part in the '42 Movement and went underground as a suspect of the Chukaghat-case, Varanasi; that provided him a chance to learn English.

Acquitted of the alleged charge, he completed university education from B. H. U. and joined Visva-Bharati with an experience of a Sanskrit lecturer for 12 years in Jaunpur and Varanasi, U.P. He was entrusted with teaching & editing MSS. In the Dept. of Sanskrit, Pali & Prakrita. In addition to his normal duties, he extended cooperation to other departments, like Philosophy, Education and Ancient Indian History Culture & Archaeology.

As a veteran teacher and seasoned manuscriptologist, he edited two Urtexts on Indian Aesthetics of the Scholastic School as well as the Neo-Rasa-Scholastic School as well as the Neo-Rasa-School. He had the honour of compiling and publishing the Ist volume of the Descriptive Catalogues of Sanskrit MSS. Deposited in the Sanskrit MSS. Section, Vidya-Bhavana, Visva-Bharati.

Now, as an inmate of poet Tagore's hermitage, Santiniketan; he dovoted his life to present the country a complete work on Indian Aesthetics, ventilating its three major streams; Poetry, Arts and Music, extracting their fundamental principles of 'one-in-Two,' from the Yamala stream of the Tantra-Sastra.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
