Kalidasa Essays and Translations
Kalidasa Essays and Translations
Description
Preface

Kalidasa: Essays and Translations consists of Sri Aurobindo's surviving work on the classical Sanskrit poet Kalidasa. The essays, all from the period 1898 - 1903, were written as chapters for a book- length study that was meant to cover Kalidasa's entire oeuvre. It will be seen from Sri Aurobindo's sketch of the contents (reproduced on page 3) that he worked on less than half of the proposed seventeen chapters. He published only two of the essays during his lifetime; the rest are reproduced from his manuscripts. The complete translation of the Vikramorvasiya and the partial translation of the Malavikagnimitra also were done around the turn of the century. The partial translation of the Kumarasambhava is from the period 1916-18, while the fragmentary translations are from various periods. The editors have added, in an appendix, a passage from Sri Aurobindo's Defence of Indian Culture dealing with Kalidasa.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

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.
Andreas, Germany.
