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.

Carl, UK.
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.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
