Description
Preface

A lot of our ancient wisdom has been buried in the millions of manuscripts lying uncared for, in our temples, mathas (monasteries) and private libraries of scholars or their descendants. The various Oriental Research Institutes in our country have successfully collected quite a lot of them, are taking care of them and are also bringing them out as printed books. Modern science and technology are being put to good use in this noble work. But for the struggle of these institutes, our appalling ignorance of our glorious ancient culture would have been more appalling.

Here is an attempt to give some basic and elementary information about these research centres.

While preparing this booklet, the book Indologial Studies and Research in India published by the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Kolkata, in 1992, was very useful. We are indebted to the same.

If the readers’ conscience is roused to know more about them, our effort will not be in vain.

 

Introduction

Oriental Research Institutes are institutions specially devoted to Indological studies. Indology is the science of study of Indian Culture in all is aspects.

With the disappearance of the Gurukula system and the ancient universities like those at Nalanda and Taksasila (Taxila, now in Pakistan) as also the gradual dissolution of the powerful kingdoms by conquests from outside, it became necessary to evolve a method by which the ancient knowledge and wisdom of the East, especially of India, could be revived and preserved.

It is the Western scholars of the 19th and the 20th centuries who were mainly responsible for this revival, though many an Indian scholar too has contributed considerably to it.

The work of these institutes consisted chiefly in collecting and collating rare manuscripts in the oriental languages (like Prakrt and Sanskrit) dealing with religion, philosophy, literature, grammar, arts and sciences, editing them and publishing them with or without translations and explanatory notes.

Where and when such publications are not possible, the manuscripts and other connected materials are preserved by using various modern and scientific devices.

A brief account of these institutions may now be given.

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.
